Navigating the path to getting a first date can sometimes seem daunting and complex. One of the questions that we get most often, is “How do I know if I should ask someone out?” While there is no way to know 100% of the time besides actually asking the person that you are talking out, there are a number of ways that you can use your phone dating conversation to get information that can help you decide.

Toll free chat conversations often eventually move into talking about hobbies and interests. Having similar interests and hobbies as the other person often increases the likelihood that they would like you to ask them out on a date. This is especially true if both people are getting excited about the conversation and the subject matter that is being talked about.

A shared sense of humor is another great indicator that the person on the other end of the phone dating line wants to meet. Humor is often a way to show comfort with other people at a relatively fast pace. It is also one of the things that most people list as being high up on their list of turn-ons and desired qualities when it comes to dating.

The idea of phone dating tends to prioritize conversation about shared interests, wants, hobbies, and desires earlier in the dating process. When the conversation moves to inquiries about physical looks, it can sometimes mean that there is an interest from the other person in meeting you. It can also be a good way to transition the conversation into a quick chat about possibly meeting in person so you can see each other in a physical setting.

Determining if the time is right to meet someone in person sometimes involves multiple variables, but if you have some of the ones that are listed above odds are it is a good idea to ask the person out in person. If it is your first phone date with them, and you are unsure, there is always the opportunity to have another phone date and ask them then. Happy dating!
