Sadly for us women men don’t come with an instruction manual. Instead we’re forced to muddle through our dating relationships trying to decipher what exactly a man means by both his words and actions. This is especially true when it comes to the area of telephone calls. Unfortunately it’s not nearly as simple as us calling him when we want to talk and him calling us back when he says he will. There’s a lot of hidden dynamics that go on in this part of a relationship and until you understand exactly how telephone rules work, you’ll be one step behind in the dating game. There are so many questions that demand answers including when should you call a man back that you are dating?
The quick answer to the question of when should you call a man back isn’t all that quick. For starters if he said he would call you, then you shouldn’t be calling him at all. Men often use telephone calls as something of a gauge to see how interested you are. If he says he’ll call on Tuesday and you’re calling him by Wednesday morning he’s going to see that you’re really interested in him, maybe even bordering on desperate. On the other hand, if Saturday rolls around, and he still hasn’t called and you haven’t reached out to him, he’s going to know that he needs to work harder to capture your attention and affection.
But what about when he calls you and your voicemail picks up? When should you call a man back in this instance? The answer to that is the same day, but not immediately after he leaves the message. Wait at least an hour or so before you return the call. If his voicemail picks up, leave a cordial message and a time you can be reached. If he doesn’t return your call around the time you suggested, make him wait again. Obviously this resembles a game, but in the game of love and happiness, we all want to be winners, so it’s crucial that you do know the other player’s game plan so you can plan your own moves.
