Well, the fellow I have been talking ton in eHarmony and I have finally traded phone numbers!
I asked him if he wanted to meet in person- he said yes, but that he wanted to chat on the phone beforehand.
I told him I would call him tomorrow at 7PM (after I get out of work, but before Body Flow).
How long should I make the call? Would it be too late to suggest we meet this Saturday? After all, I work next Saturday, and he seems to have an M to F job.
Hopefully I will not be congested from my cold anymore- I sound awkward when I am congested.
Besides making the IRL date, what questions should I ask (other than how was your day/week)? How do I let out just enough while keeping the mystery? We live about an hour apart- is meeting at a restaurant in between but still in my county considerate and good form? Is The Olive Garden harmless and inclusive enough of a restaurant? Should I suggest we meet for lunch or dinner?
Due to Body Flow being at 7:30 (albeit across the street from my place), I do not want to make this call too long. But I do not want to be too abrupt/direct/focused/to the point/bottom lining/no nonsense either, since I do not want to scare him off and I am direct enough as it is already. If I ask him about his day, a couple general questions about his family (how is his niece doing, how many siblings), last place he traveled to, and then suggest we meet at the Olive Garden in between us this Saturday, would that be about fine?
As you can tell, I am awkward when it comes to this things and have not had much luck in romance.
