So I've started internet dating because I'm getting older and it's harder to meet new people.
My attitude has been, after about five or six e-mails back and forth, to ask for their number to talk on the phone. After talking on the phone once, ask them out on a date.
My friend and his girlfriend (who met online), seem to insist it's better to not talk on the phone first and just meet in person.
I'm thinking it's better to talk on the phone first to see if you have any connection just through conversation.
Any thoughts on the matter? Gals and guys?

Are you kidding me? Why would your friends say that! I've been on and off online dating for about three years now.. When I first started meeting people I never spoke with them on the phone.. however, NOW I realize that is such a waste of time.. especially for the guy because usually it's him paying for the date.. so I suggest a quick 5 to 10 minute phone convo to get a quick vibe.. and then see if you want to meet. I'm not suggesting a full hour convo.. that's not a good idea.. save that for face to face but you really can get a better read on someone by voice and hear the way they are..0
