In today’s dating scene, it’s not uncommon that more girls are wanting to take control and call the guys after a date.

If you had a great time and can’t wait to tell him, I recommend texting him after the date to let him know you got home OK and you had a lot of fun getting to know him. Leave it at that. But after a couple of days, if he hasn’t called you yet, you can call him to let him know you were thinking about how much fun you had on your date and you hope to see him again. If you’re feeling bold, you can even ask him out for the second date. Just don’t be too forward by calling or texting every day. Once the ball is in his court, let him make the next move.

Don’t let society’s expectations of women hold you back from getting what you want. Just go for it!
