By waiting 4 days to a week to strike up a meaningful conversation (via text), it cannot hurt your cause 1 bit.Waiting will only create a better and stronger impression of you as a guy who gets it, and of a guy who actually does something with his time than stalking chicks online.All in all, the question of “when” you should contact a new girl for the 1st. It could be 5 minutes later, 5 hours later or 5 days later.
It is “how” you contact her, the vibe/frame from which you contact her and your overall demeanor.
If your first/initial text comes from a disposition of “expecting” and “outcome dependent”; you are fucked!
Being preoccupied with “How long should I wait before calling a girl” is sort of outdated.
How long you should wait depends on the vibe, the type of girl and other variables such as availability.
I can get away with thanking a girl for accepting my friend request, but that’s due to external factors which will have already put me in a position of power [the way I structure my profile].
You as the average Joe with a mediocre-standardized profile, who isn’t keen on seducing girls online, should avoid thanking girls at all cost ’cause you’ll only fuck your chances.
It also demonstrates that you’re not over eager or desperate to chat away with her, hence the “we’ll talk later” vibe. Ok, so about a week later of commenting back and forth a bit on her status or photo (or yours), she will have gotten a feel for your vibe and be able to gauge your humor or lack there of.
At that point- you can shoot her an inbox message or chat text.
Refrain from the temptation of wanting to all-out converse right after she accepts your friend request. Why not just contact her right away and put it all on the line and have a great conversation”!? But it’s better to be wise and strategic than to operate from a position of desperation and over excitement.
