Why do guys do the three day rule?
According to the Urban Dictionary (http://www.urbandictionary.com) the three day rule is: “A rule to prevent a man from appearing desperate or needy after attaining a girls phone number that he (just) met. Following this rule, you are to wait 3 days before calling in order to create suspense and appear non-needy.”
What does the 3 day rule mean?
Popularized by the romcom, the three-day dating rule insists that a person wait three full days before contacting a potential suitor. A first-day text or call is too eager, a second-day contact seems planned, but three days is, somehow, the perfect amount of time.
Should I text him first or wait?
You should text him first if, youre reaching out to him to genuinely connect and communicate with him. If for any reason youre texting him based on worry, fear or anxiety. Such as, trying to “keep his interest” or manipulating him to do something for you.
