Two day rule in dating
If I give a guy my number, it's because I had a good time and want him to call again.
Exception to that rule: if I'm at a club and been drinking a little too much, which is seldom the case. I ended the convo with, "You don't even know who you called, do you?

It’s been nearly a decade since the singles movie Swingers was in full swing, but for many the “2-day rule” is still in effect.

But a number of you have stated that if the guys calls too often it *will* come across as needy, and a lot of you have also said you would expect to hear from a guy within a few days, beyond that and he's wasting your time.
You read them but then make a mental note to answer them later. All of these assumptions could cause you to miss out on a great person for you because of believing in this 2-day rule myth.
