You’ve listened to each other’s voicemail messages on Chat2Date but you now want to have a proper chat.
Talking on the phone for the first time can be daunting and the first impression you make is very important.
Here are our top tips to help you through that first phone call and ensure you secure that first date!
Be cheerful and chatty. Remember the other person can’t see your face and they only have the tone of your voice to go by so make sure you sound interested.
Don’t give short answers. Make sure you always elaborate on any answers you give and if you can, turn your answer into a question for them! Keep the conversation flowing and use open ended questions so they have a chance to give better answers.
Remember that this isn’t an interview. There are no right and wrong answers to their questions – just be yourself and be relaxed. Don’t interrogate them either – you don’t need to find out everything about them in this one conversation – leave some things for your first date!
Give the person your full attention. Don’t make it sound like you’re doing something else like watching TV or on your computer. Be interested in what they have to say and respond appropriately.
If the conversation is gradually slowing, let it naturally come to an end. Don’t force it or ask questions for the sake of it.
Lastly and most importantly – always be yourself!
