Why the call matters

If you do decide to take it from text to calling (or more), there’s value in adding a phone call or virtual chat in there. Hoffman says, “The phone call gives you something to build up to, which we have to fabricate that magic in today’s world since it could be three more months of just virtual dating in this pandemic. Once you do the video chat, it’s an added layer of your first impression. Sometimes people don’t prepare themselves like they would for a regular in-person date. There is so much more information in the frame. It’s almost more intimate than meeting someone out and about because they know what your apartment looks like, if you have a loud roommate, and so on. You’re inviting someone into your home. So I like to add that step of the phone call whenever possible.”
