I watched the whole thing in one sitting. Janis Spindel, the matchmaker, is supposedly one of the top matchmakers in the country. She’s also scary as hell. At one point she started to talk about the way that women completely screw things up on the first date (she seems to put most of the blame on women for messing things up, but as it’s the guys who pay her, that makes sense). One of the things she mentioned is that if a guy takes a women out to dinner he expects her to call or text or something the next day to say thank you (I actually wrote a post months ago about thank yous and how hard it was to know what to say if you didn’t really like the person). She was furious that some women didn’t do this and considered it “blowing your chances with a great guy”.
Just a couple days earlier, and I apologize because I can’t remember where I read it but I’m sure it wasn’t the first time I saw it, I read an article that said that women should never call first. That it’s a guy’s duty to make the next day call and that if a woman called she was being clingy and needy, etc.
