The standard waiting time for the post first-date call in the US is within 1 – 3 days.Calling earlier might come across as overeager, especially because power is usually held by the party who shows the least amount of attachment in the US.
After this, they text and text and text, no phone calls, just text, (similar to South Koreans). This is where it might become a tad confusing for Americans. It can be compared to having coffee by American standards but not quite the same.
Since a Fika can be had with just about anybody, including relatives and friends, the trick is to pretend the night of flirtation never happened, the engagement of the other party’s company is platonic and therefore, this “getting to know each other” event is never to be declared as a real date.
Another interesting fact: Swedish men are not known to be romantics.
In South Korea however, these statistics don’t apply.
A single American dating in South Korea might be caught, very off-guard by the “text-dating” culture there.
The first 3 days in South Korean dating, involve non-stop, small-talk, texts.
