This is something that I find incredibly irritating - when a new guy (you haven't had a date yet, a date hasn't even been set up yet, you went on one date, et al) feels the need to call/email/text for what appears to be no reason at all. For example:
- How are you?
- How's your morning?
- What did you do for the 4th?
- How was your weekend?
- What are you doing this weekend? (Very ambiguous and stupid question, the woman doesn't know if you are trying to ask her out or if you are just nosy and want to know what she's doing this weekend)
Perhaps this is the thing 22 year olds do? Then leave it to the 22 year olds. If you are communicating with someone in their 30s, I don't see this as being at all necessary. I'm in my mid 30s and I'm too busy for this back and forth with no reason "chatting." Sometimes I'm in meetings for six hours straight, then a three hour work dinner; that's nine hours right there. So no, I don't have the time or interest in no reason messages.
