Dating days of the week
Rushing things or getting too anxious can blow the entire operation, so I will give you a few basic rules to follow during the crucial first two weeks. But the truth is that one can binge on anything: substances, shopping, or even seeing each other.
One of the most common pitfalls for men and women in the first stage of dating is to make the gigantic mistake of seeing each other too frequently in the first week or two.
In 2018, 62 percent more people set up dates on the first Sunday after New Year's than they did the week before.
You’ve met someone who you’re va-va-voom attracted to, so what happens next?
It appears this surge in new conversations (recorded as being based on phone numbers exchanged) is steadily rising, so 2019 will likely follow suit. There was also an increase in dates being set up (based on phone numbers exchanged) for those two years.
In 2017, 36 percent more people set up dates on the first Sunday after New Year's than they did the week before.
It is perfectly normal to want to see that new person night after night, or a few times in the first week.
As I understand it, in the olden days people went on one date a week, and that date happened on Friday night. You're also up against all the other people who are on dates on Friday night: Nothing says "romance" like a two-hour wait for space at the bar, where she'll end up perched on a tiny stool and you'll end up hovering nearby, jostled by people reaching through your conversation to order margaritas which will inevitably spill on your pants in just the crotch bit, so that it looks like you peed yourself.
When you do connect, talking on the phone is much better than texting because you can get a much better feel for the other person’s personality in the course of natural dialogue. Don’t talk to others about the person you just started dating.
Of course, it’s inevitable to mention that you met someone you like to a best friend or family member, but keep your announcements to a minimum.

We're fascinated by contemporary dating culture, so it should come as no surprise that we often use our own data to conduct mini research projects. Successful matches = those which resulted in both parties being interested in seeing each other again. Pressure is low on Thursdays as you head into the weekend. Dates planned on Tuesday evenings turned out favorably 25% more often than those in the afternoon.For this reason, my overall advice to you is to slow down and take dating day by day.
