Question: When do you know the 3 day rule?

Popularized by the romcom, the three-day dating rule insists that a person wait three full days before contacting a potential suitor. A first-day text or call is too eager, a second-day contact seems planned, but three days is, somehow, the perfect amount of time.

How long after a date should he text?

You may be worried that youre being held down by the arbitrary three-day rule, but fortunately, it may turn out youre doing more worrying than necessary. According to experts, the best rule of thumb is that you should text someone within 24 hours after a first date.

How long do you wait between texts?

A study from the dating app Hinge shows that double-texting can increase a dates likelihood to respond. The key is to wait four hours before the second text. Sending a second text even a week later increased the likelihood of a response.
