'I'll Call You:' What A Guy Really Means
Learn to continue dating. Don't wait for his call.
He said he will call you, but what does that really mean?

Dating is no easy feat. We all have a tree in our backyard that we have stopped to admire, and then proceed to bang our head on after a bad date. I realize it can be very frustrating for you gals to decipher what we guys are saying during the dating process.

What does it all mean? What is the true status of your relationship? Never fear, your Bad Swami is here to help you decode these mysterious phrases, and offer up relationship guidance. Let a man's man, a stallion among stallions, a male specimen with truckloads of je ne sais quoi (among those possessing only handfuls of je ne sais quoi) walk you through these phrases in detail, and give you the unvarnished truth about what they are likely to mean, and what you should do next to save your sanity.

"I Will Call You."

What it means: He's "bookmarking" you, i.e., hoping you'll just wait for him to call. If he wants to call you, he'll call you. I certainly don't announce to anyone that I'm going to the bathroom, I just go. Similarly, if he's going to call you, he'll just do it. If he doesn't call you within a week or two, he's not interested enough for you to worry about.

What to do: Can you call him? Sure you can, but dating hasn't evolved to the point where men and women are equals, although it should have by now. What I'm saying is that he's probably not waiting by the phone for you to call and if he is, I'm not sure he's worth pursuing. Continue socializing and going on other dates. I think women need to learn to keep seeing other people until they find someone who wants to be exclusive.
