Now it’s a question of taking things to the next stage.If you would like to get to know the other person better, then it’s time to fix a meeting.Were you tongue-tied and did you feel that you hadn’t made a very good job of selling yourself?
I also had a few situations where talking on the phone seemed to encourage us to put off meeting and when we finally met, I was disappointed that the chemistry was lacking.
So my first piece of advice is don’t feel like you must move from emails to phone calls.
Here are some tips on how best to handle that important first phone conversation.
So you were none the wiser after the first phone call than you were before?
It’s always exciting when you have your first phonecall with someone you’ve met online.
And that’s how is should be: if you’re excited, then it should help you to get to know each other, but it can also cause a few problems from time to time.
Pay attention to the other person’s voice and follow your instincts. You already know something about each other, thanks to your Parship profiles and the emails you’ve exchanged.
You both find yourself in a rather special situation and you both have certain expectations.
You might wonder why, when you’ve prepared your list of questions, you should even consider talking about the weather, but it’s worth thinking about how you get to know someone in the normal course of things.
Do you work through a set of questions and subject them to some kind of an interrogation? Even if you talk about last week’s shopping list you’ll learn something about each other.
How should I prepare for the first phone call with someone I’m talking to online? These are questions a reader asked me recently and he was wondering if recommended handling the first phone call just like I recommend for planning for first date conversations.
