Having the right kinds of conversations can do that for you.
After all, contacting someone is just a pre-cursor to the first date.
It’s not as if you hoping to “chat” with someone and end it there.
Of course, you shouldn’t hang on the phone for two hours so that you get sick of each other before you even met, but getting an idea about each other’s personality through a slightly longer than usual conversation before meeting for the first time is indeed a very good idea.
So, treat your very first phone conversation with a woman as a first date – it’s an interaction where you learn a little more about each other and you find out if there is a mutual interest and mutual desire to actually get to know each other better after that conversation.
