    Default Call/Text her before date? Or no...

    So I met a gal at a friends party last Sunday (8/2). Chatted her a good while and at the end of the night traded digits. Gave her a call last Wednesday (8/6) and talked about 10 minutes. She was all bubbly and sounded excited to hear from me. We had talked about going on a hike at the party so I asked her when she was free to go on a hike and she said Sunday 8/24, 2.5 weeks away. I said great, I'll pick you up at 2 give me your address - she gave it and left the conversation with looking forward to it I'll see you then.

    So my question is should I send a quick text or something in between or go no contact and just show up to pick her up next Sunday? I'm new to this and it just feels like a long time to go completely no contact. We talked a bunch about 80's tunes so if I reach out I figured I'd link a video and say 'heard this driving home thought of you' or some other nonsense.

    Thoughts?

    Once you've set up a meet up with time and place you need to be mindful that you can't steer anything anywhere. When you try to its going to be awkward unless they like to text way more than you.

    My suggestion is only text 2 to 3 days before the meet up or the day of. I used to text the day before but it usually became useless because people will change their minds last minute anyways.. I believe its more efficient to ask if things are still on in the 2 to 3 day period because anyone cab back out and make new plans. On the day of i usually text first sometime around noon saying 'going to be xx minutes late' which means nothing because you still plan to show up. This gives them the chance to back out too.
    Every moment counts, get out of your head and enjoy it.

    Ideally, you don't want to set up a date that is more than 7 days from now. If that can't be avoided, then you should send a couple ping texts and keep it light and playful. Send another ping text a few hours before the date to confirm.

    To add on to WillEdward's brilliant reply, one text I send maybe an hour or two before is that I'm running a little behind and I may be like 5 mins late. Now, it's not true, but her response will tell you if she decided to flake or not. Don't want to be on your way to meet and she texts you flaking.
