Why Phone Calls are the Key to Finding Love in the Digital Age
Welcome to the world of dating in the 21st century.
With the rise of dating apps and online matchmaking, it’s easier than ever to connect with potential partners. But with all the convenience of swiping and messaging, it’s important to remember the importance of the good old-fashioned phone call.
As a matchmaker at Match Me Canada, I’ve seen firsthand the benefits of chatting on the phone before meeting someone in person. For starters, a phone call allows you to hear the person’s voice and get a sense of their personality, which can be much harder to gauge through text or online messaging. It also gives you an opportunity to ask more in-depth questions and have a real conversation rather than just exchanging surface-level messages.
But the benefits don’t stop there. According to a study by the University of Kansas, couples who talked on the phone before meeting in person had a higher chance of hitting it off once they met face-to-face. So, if you’re looking to make a real connection with someone, make sure to pick up the phone!
So, what should you do to have a great first phone call with your match? Here are a few tips:
|Be yourself. Remember that the person you’re talking to has already expressed interest in you, so there’s no need to put on a show or pretend to be someone you’re not.
|Ask open-ended questions. Instead of asking yes or no questions, try to ask questions that will lead to a more in-depth conversation.
|Listen actively. It’s important to not only talk about yourself but also to listen to what the other person has to say.
|Have a plan. It’s always a good idea to have some conversation topics in mind before the call, so you don’t run out of things to talk about.
|Be respectful of their time. Remember that the other person is likely busy and has a life outside of this call, so try to be mindful of how long the call is lasting.
Now, I know you may be thinking, “But Rebecca, what if I’m not good at phone conversations? Can’t I just stick to texting?” While it’s true that some people may find phone calls more difficult, it’s important to remember that dating is about taking risks and stepping out of your comfort zone. Plus, if you’re having trouble, Match Me Canada offers date coaching and online dating takeover services to help you feel more confident and comfortable when it comes to dating.
In conclusion, don’t underestimate the power of a phone call when it comes to dating. Not only will it help you make a real connection with someone, but it can also increase your chances of hitting it off once you meet in person. So go ahead, pick up the phone and give it a try.
