You met the guy of your dreams, you exchanged numbers, and you're sure he's going to call. After all, you have plenty in common, and he seemed interested.
If you're waiting for his call, the last thing you want is to answer on the first ring. After all, you don't want to seem desperate. However, there are plenty of ways to pass the time until you finally see his number on your Caller ID.
Re-Organize Your Living Room
Tidy up your home so it looks fresh and clean when your new love interest comes to pick you up for a date. You don't want to give the impression that your roommate is Oscar from "The Odd Couple."
Hone Your Culinary Skills
Try that new dish you've been dying to make. If your recipe turns out great, make it again for your special someone. If the dish needs improvement, it's best to find out now, with you as the only witness.
Read a Book
Dive into a romance novel or learn something new. Either way, time will fly while waiting for the phone to ring. A book can also be a great conversation starter.
Give Yourself a Makeover
Try a new hairstyle or learn a different way to apply eye makeup. Peruse online guides that teach you different makeup application techniques.
Consult With a Psychic
Talk to an online psychic about the best way to attract your soulmate. A psychic can give you advice about your path and the decisions you might face.
Detail Your Car
You only get one shot for a good first impression, so why leave it up to chance? Since one of the first things your guy will see is your vehicle, it's a good idea to detail your wheels—especially if it's not clear from first glance whether you live in your home or your car.
Teach Your Dog a New Trick
Despite the old adage, you can teach both new and old dogs tricks. If your dog knows basic commands, expand on one. The command "down" can quickly turn into the command "roll over" with a simple hand gesture.
Learn New Words
Pick out five new words from the dictionary and then practice using them in sentences. When the phone rings, you can try out one of your new phrases.
Clean Out Your Refrigerator
Is it scary to think about what is lurking in the back of the bottom shelf? It's better you find it now than have someone ask, "What's that smell?" Throw out old items and scrub the refrigerator clean, then enjoy the rush of accomplishment when it's done.
Research Something New
If you've always wondered about the difference between a clairaudient and a clairvoyant, now is a great time to learn. Think about how smart you will sound when you use the terms in a sentence and then can explain the difference.
Now that you have a list of 10 things to keep you busy while you're waiting for his call, time will fly. Remember, you don't want to answer before the third ring.
