Hmm, Its not a small thing oh,
If this person is interesting to see me again and I feel in doubt about this person, then I would tell this person meeting the same place from the first date for second date and remind him if either this person or me no show up to meet within 15 to 30 minutes then the date is cancelled, no hard feeling! No reschedule! I still don't give out my phone, email, text message phone number or IP address including IM until second or third dates in order to gain my confidence with this person, PERIOD!!!
Only the special circumstances when time is running out and i like this person very much wanting to see him again, then i would give out my anonymous email address (yahoo, not on my real email address) or IM (Yahoo Messenger, MSN, or AOL-AIM) for setting the same dating arrangement procedure I mentioned above.
After third date once both are seriously interested in seeing each other on FRIENDSHIP LEVEL to give out the point of contact purpose only text message, anonyous email and IM. For serious relationship with taking slow time it would be between 3 weeks to 3 months depend on the characteristics, potentials, and bad pitfalls i look for or watch out.
Between 3-6 months, it will be next level of relationship to start inviting each other at this person's and my place for dining in, entertainment, travel and/or possible meeting with each other families. God forbids about cohabiting that I do not believe in. SORRY!!!!
After 6 months to 1 years up to 3 years, you know what next level---I won't give you all out the details in the form of serious committed relationship, who knows!!! (Normally with FULLY TRUST, LOVE, MATURITY, HONESTY, COMMUNICATION, and COMMITMENT, it would be 1 or 2 years sufficient for marriage-ready---most dating people are FAILED not work out well)
This is so simple and MY OWN DATING PROCEDURE from my own experience I had been through before. That is TOO BAD for this person showing up VERY LATE PASSED 30 MINUTES---i was gone by then!!! NO LAME EXCUSES!!!
For those who date anyone too long more than 3-6 years WITHOUT SERIOUS COMMITMENT and NO ENGAGEMENT ANNOUNCEMENT is REALLY IMPOSSIBLE, LACK OF COMMUNICATION and OUT OF LOVE---THEREFORE, they are FOOLS waiting for this person TOO LONG in the name of GETTING MARRIAGE!!! That is when cheating or slicking/luring to pretend to love this person start!!!! Not worth!!!
For long distance relationship, it is really impossible and I never try for half way around the world unless this person has valid legal passport/visa eligibility. I do not have that kind of experience like this---i don't see that for myself. I already experienced in only local distance within 25-50 miles radius of my home location in the past.(BIG ADVANTAGE: about my location that is easily accessible to Washington DC, Virginia Beach, Maryland, Appalachin(spelled? ?) Mountain and Northern Virginia---all 3-4 hours driving distance apart each other) Like i say it is 50%/50% work out or fail in long distance relationship.
IP address for video chat that is designed for US coverage and few eligible countries such as UK and Canada.
The Video relay software belong to the national telephone providers: Sprint, AT&T, and MCI to choose that is designed for person who are hearing impaired/deaf ONLY. It is FREE! Only require to hook up the high speed internet connection having video chat with webcam or video phone.
In the US, there are 35 million hearing impaired residents on all 50 states of US out of total 365 millions USA residents (both citizenship and legal immigrants).
Now about 35% of scammers has been attacked using video relay software to pretend that they are deaf. That hurts 35 millions deaf people having hard time to make phone call to hearing callers for ordering pizza, make phone call to hearing family, ordering from magazine catalog, filing complaints to banks/school/organizations because of that scammers.
Those 35 millions deaf people do not live with hearing family, they are very much independently to live their own place, have jobs, have cars to drive, etc. just like hearing people do in normal life.
so many ladies will sleep with a man on the first date - i have slept with five ladies at diiferent times on our first dates - its no big deal - i repeat no big deal. how will you speak with the person to book the date anyway? meaning you must have met and arrange the first date - or i dont get it?
