You might think checking on the other call only takes a “second,” but in reality it’s half a minute of nothingness for your date. I had a client once tell me that the man she was dating refused to speak to her after 10 PM because she was more irritable at that time and they often ended up having disagreements.

What they want to hear when that call waiting beeps in is you saying, “I don’t pick up call waiting when I’m on with you.” Ahhh…doesn’t that feel great? He found that when they spoke earlier in the day or evening their conversation and connection was fine.
