I am a little out of the typical dating loop, but was wondering what is the manadatory waiting period between communications if you are courting someone.

I met a gal who is 24 (I am 32) this weekend at a formal function, we went out afterwards and I dropped her off late. I am interested, and do not want to blow it.

I called yesterday night and left a message just saying I had a good time. I had promised pics of my dog so I sent those this AM, and we have exchanged a couple of emails today. I do not want to appear desperate or to clingy early on - so what is the protocol.

Mike: So how long do I wait to call?
Trent: A day.
Mike: Tomorrow.
Sue: Tomorrow, then a day.
Trent: Yeah.
Mike: So two days?
Trent: Yeah, I guess you could call it that, two days.
Sue: Definitely, two days is like industry standard.
Trent: You know I used to wait two days to call anybody, but now it's like everyone in town waits two days. So I think three days is kind of money. What do you think?
Sue: Yeah, but two's enough not to look anxious.
Trent: But I think three days is kind of money. You know because you...
Mike: Yeah, but you know what, mabey I'll wait 3 weeks. How's that? And tell her I was cleaning out my wallet and I just happened to run into her number.
Charles: Then ask her where you met her.
Mike: Yeah, I'll ask her where I met her. I don't remember. What does she look like? And then I'll asked if we fucked. Is that... would that be... T, would that be the money?
Trent: You know what. Ha ha ha Mike, laugh all you want but if you call too soon you might scare off a nice baby who's ready to party.
Mike: Well how long are you guys gonna wait to call your babies?
Trent, Sue: Six days.

That was made up for the movie swingers and somehow became the rule. I think it sucks. Personally, I like to call her the same night I get her phone number. Usually only moments after.

In your case, I would stop with emails tomorrow and call her tomorrow evening.

That is the plan, I will go this route. Dating should not be this hard!
