    Default Phone Etiquette

    Phone Etiquette

    Ok so I've noticed there are a lot of posts regarding phone/text game and there has been great advise in said posts, but what I have a subject relating to phone game that (as far as I've seen) has not been covered.. And that is Phone Etiquette. ( I cant take credit for everything in this post as I have taken parts from another source as well as added my own to it)

    Ok so what am I talking about you say?

    Well this may sound funny but it is just as important to have proper etiquette while on the phone as it is to have etiquette at the dinner table. Due to us having fast paced, busy lives we seldom have time to stop everything to give someone our undivided attention on the phone. People will carry on doing annoying things while on the phone. As a PUA you not only have to be the exception but you also have to be someone who doesn't tolerate this behavior from someone else.

    Have you ever called up a lady and midway through your conversation she gets distracted by someone or something, causing you to stop what you were saying or even worse causing you to lose your train of thought? This is extremely irritating and can change the mood of an interaction in a heartbeat. You can look at this as the phone game equivalent to an external interrupt when gaming a lady in person.

    Ok so an example of proper phone etiquette is if you call up a lady and you can tell she is busy, she is out with friends or you can sense that she can't give you her undivided attention then you need to cut the call short. You could say something like "It sounds as if you are a bit busy over there. Let me call you back!" This is a solid dhv as it shows that you are a busy man that doesn't have time to sit around and wait for her to pay attention. At the same time this could build comfort because it shows her that you are paying attention and you are aware of what is happening in her life. If the lady becomes aware of her mistake and that she is being rude, don't be a d1ck and make her feel bad for doing it. Simply tell her not to worry, you just don't like talking to someone who can't give you their full attention, but you would call her back later. Make sure you use a friendly tone while doing this as you don't want her to think you are angry or disappointed. Respect that she is a busy lady just as you are a busy guy.

    It's all fair and well not tolerating this behavior on a ladies part but you need to insure you stick to this rule yourself. If things start happening on your side then let the lady know that something has come up and that you would call her back. You could add in that you know how much you hate speaking to someone that's gets distracted all the time. This again is a DHV because it shows her that you have courtesy and also shows her that you won't put up with someone with this behavior on the phone.

    Ok so lets say you are out with friends and a lady calls you. Should you ignore the call. Of course not. But a good idea would be to answer the phone just as you are walking out the venue. Try make sure that she hears the music in the background if at a club or hears someone laughing. This will show her that you are a busy and social guy. Let her know that you can't talk for long but still have a conversation with her albeit a short one. This would be the perfect time to set up a meet as it is more then likely that she called you to tell you something interesting or important. You could say " I'm really sorry my friends are waiting for me inside but I would like to continue this conversation. How's about coffee tomorrow at 6?

    So this is just part of phone etiquette and if someone else has anything else to add please feel free hope this helps

    i would add that cutting the convo short is a must do. doing so will help to avoid having long awekward pauses. also, you can plan out some jokes and things to say and write them down on a peice of paper before you call. this ensures that you don't get too sidetracked and have some fallback material in case the convo pans out.

    might i also note that i like your way of not talking to them if they are buisy. i know how much of a pain getting phone calls can be when i'm out sarging. usualy i don't answer and then i text them to see whats going on.

    I agree having some jokes or material is a good idea. There's nothing worse then awkward silence.

    Also if I happen to be sarging a girl and my phone rings I won't answer it as that is just rude. If I'm in a conversation with a lady I pretty much try forget that my phone is there and will only pull it out to get her number. If a call or message comes through I will glance at my phone to make sure it isn't important, then silence the phone and leave it to ring. If the lady happens to see that it will show that I have respect for her and that I am more interested in our interaction then what's happening on my phone.

    i have to agree, might i add that keeping your phone on "vibrate" is a must do. don't want it to be ringing while i'm talking to someone. though there is nothing wrong with being a bit rude at times, i get what you're saying. its very anoying to have someone exit your convo to talk to someone else on the phone.
