I've been texting a girl I met on an online dating site for almost 2 weeks. I took the plunge and called her for the first time today. I won't lie, it was rather awkward due to both my dislike for talking on the phone and nerves, the silences and her sounding uninterested ( could just be how she talks, was the first time hearing her voice ). It was quick and when I got home I messaged her saying I was sorry about it being awkward, she said it was fine and not be to nervous.
Now, this got me realizing that when I initiate the conversation I never really have anything to say, other then the typical "how are you" "what are you up to" etc, but when she starts the conversation it goes great and it feels very natural.
I like her and feel we have a connection, but it bugs me that I don't have much to say. I don't know if it's nerves or I'm just a boring person... and because of this I feel I might be killing the "spark". I'd really hate for this to end before we got the chance to meet in person and really had a chance to gauge each other.
Any thoughts, ideas, tips? Thanks.

Come up with something to say before you dial her number. Did something funny happen at work today? Did you read something interesting Ina magazine or online? It doesn have to be anything grand and exciting, just a talking point. Chances are, she will have an opinion or a similar story, and things can flow from there. And don't feel obligated to talk for hours. I can't stand being on the phone for more than a few minutes, even with my best friends. It means a lot to a girl that you are thinking of her enough to call her, even if it's just a quick hello.0
