    How to initiate contact on blind date?

    A friend of mine gave me a woman’s name and number and suggested I call and invite her for a drink. When it comes to setting up something with someone I never met would it be OK to text her instead of calling? I’m afraid I’ll be extremely awkward on the phone trying to figure out a place and time. I also don’t drink, so what else could I suggest to get to know someone I know nothing about?

    I usually text even when I know them well. No one ever answers a phone any more. You also never know when you are going to call them at an awkward moment. Imagine her at her parents to have dinner with them and she gets a call from an awkward sounding guy she has never met asking her for a date,…and wondering how you got her number.

    Your friend should have handled the introduction and maybe arranged for the two of you to meet in a group setting the first time. Then she could have given you her number herself,…therefore she would be expecting a call.
