Had a great date but wondering why the phone isn't ringing? Read these dating tips and find out why.
Pickup Lines that Actually Work!
Men aren't like women. You could say they're more simple-minded - or I guess guys would prefer to say they have their priorities straight. Either way though, one thing's for sure - they don't spend hours obsessing over everything they do. It would be nice if guys put as much thought into things (like dating) as women, but most often, they don't. They also don't send hidden messages - they either like us or not. And if they do like you, trust me, you'll know it.
Men tend to be visual creatures and fall in love with their eyes. If they're into you, they'll want to see you again, but if they aren't into you, chances are good that you won't be getting a call back. If you find yourself falling into the latter category one too many times, here are a few reasons why you might think a date went well but subsequently never heard from the man again.
1. Zero Chemistry
Chemistry isn't something that can be explained. A man can think a woman is beautiful, well-dressed, and very sweet, but for some reason he won't feel a connection with her. If there's no chemistry, the man won't give her a second chance. Men aren't indecisive like women. More often than not they're quick decision makers, so they'll know from the first time they see someone if they're into it. If there's no chemistry, they'll simply move on to the next lady.
Sometimes women forget their manners and act rudely on a date. Perhaps the guy wasn't what you expected, so you think it's okay to be rude to him. I personally hate when people tell me stories like this. Some of my friends will meet guys on JDate who turn out to be shorter and look different than in their online pictures - so as a result, they act obnoxious. Well, if you act abominably towards someone, there's little chance he'll call you back.

3. Lateness Isn't Tolerated
Men can't stand women who are late. It rubs them the wrong way. Being late shows a lack of respect for the person you're meeting and says that you're inconsiderate. I always feel like an idiot when I'm kept waiting, even if I'm not on a date. If you're late to a first meeting with a guy, it can easily put things in a sour mood from the get-go and ruin your chances of getting that second phone call.
4. He's Just Not That Into You
Your date could have found you attractive and really fun, but he just didn't have the sparks. It happens all the time. Sometimes men think women are fabulous, but the necessary attraction needed to foster a relationship is missing. I've gone on many dates with really cute guys who are great catches, but still wasn't into them, so even if you didn't do anything wrong, there's a chance your date may still not be into you. Don't take it personally!
5. Choose Your Words Wisely
Men generally aren't as sensitive as women, but they do get offended. It's important to always be nice on a first date. Kindness is contagious and everyone deserves to be treated with respect. I certainly wouldn't want to go on a second date with someone that hurt my feelings. Insulting someone isn't sexy. So, if you say something that offends your date, don't expect him to want to see you again.
Okay ladies, now that you know the main reasons why men don't call you back, accept it and move on. Don't be one of those girls who enjoys over analyzing everything and is guilty of texting a guy too often. Men don't like needy women, so if a guy doesn't call you back, forget about him. As the saying goes, there's plenty of other fish in the sea!
