I am a 43 year old recently divorced man. (Seperated a year ago, finalized 6 months. ago) I was recently set up on a date with a 37 year old single woman. We are both professionals with erratic schedules. (I am a chef and she is an ER Doctor.) After being introduced at my restaurant by our mutual friend I got her e-mail and asked her for her phone number. Two days later she e-mailed back and gave it to me. The next day I called her and left her a message saying I was sorry I missed her and would try another time. The next day she tried to call me, however I was at work and couldn't take the call. Finally the next day I got to talk with her for about 45 minutes and there was a definite connection. We agreed to go out the following Sunday. (A week in the future) The next day I e-mailed and invited her to go to the zoo and get something to eat afterward. The next day she responded and said that was great and suggested a time. I e-mailed back that was great and asked if I could pick her up. Three days later I had heard nothing back so I sent a general e-mail saying hi, that my week was crazy etc. I ended it saying I was looking forward to Sunday, but no other mention of our date. The next day she e-mailed back some general stuff ended by see you tomorrow. I picked her up and we went to the zoo, for drinks, to dinner, and out for more drinks. 7 hours in all. We have a lot in common and had a lot of fun. I feel confident we had a good connection. At the end of the date I walked her to her door she gave me a big hug and I kissed her on the cheek. I told her I wanted to see her again and she agreed, We had discussed schedule a bit and When I asked if I could call, she said please call even if she was working, she would enjoy hearing the message. The next day, Monday, I called and left her a message saying I really had a good time and what my schedule was (I had said I would do so.) Suggested we could get together for dinner or a drink after work. Now it's 3 days later and nothing. I know she was off today and thought maybe she would call, even if it was to leave a message. She knows I am off this coming Saturday and Monday. (It's Wednesday night now.) I really feel like she is a special woman and that she is interested in me. What next? Is she playing games? Am I expecting too much too quick? I am trying to play it cool but the uncertainity is killing me. Let me know your thoughts.

Give her some more time, she knows your schedule so she probably doesn't feel an urgent need to rush to get a moment of your time.2
