So, you go out with a great guy, you both have an amazing time, you're clearly really into each other, but then you're both supposed to wait at least three agonizing days to contact each other again? Isn't the whole point of dating to find someone you dig and then actually get to talk to and hang out with that person?

Makes zero sense to us-and kinda sounds like playing games, which we are so not into.

Well, it seems like we're not alone in thinking this stipulation is beyond lame: According to a recent survey by Match.com, 78 percent of guys and 49 percent of gals typically reach out to the other person within three days or less after a good first date.

What's more, an overwhelming 61 percent of men and women prefer to call after a good first date, while only 14 percent like to text.

We don't know about you, but this info gives us hope for the collective dating community. Or maybe we've dealt with way to many guys who don't seem to know that their cell phones can actually call people that we get a little too stoked over the tiniest of victories.

Either way, progress is being made, ladies.
