Four Things You Should NEVER Leave on a Woman's Voicemail

Jun 7, 2008
It always seems like your life has turned perfect for you when you get a gorgeous woman's phone number. Unfortunately, I would wager that 86% of the time, a woman will not call back a man that she gives her number to. A large part of this is because of the phone message he leaves. A woman meets so many men, that no matter how good the interaction was at first, she is going to really size up your phone message to decide if she wants to talk to you again.

Here are the four biggest mistakes most men make when leaving a woman a message...

Mistake #1: Retelling how you first met in detail

She might not remember you, especially if it's been a couple days. That's why it's good to give her a brief reminder, such as "Hey this is Jack. Met you at Tiger Lounge on Saturday." That should be enough, if your conversation had any substance. Leave out any details such as what shirt you were wearing, what you two talked about, what your job is, etc.

Mistake #2: You left a 5 minute message

No matter how interesting you think your day was, it sounds really needy if you feel the need to tell her the whole thing on her voicemail. If she's going to call you back, you can tell her then, right? If you were worried that she wasn't going to call you back without your funny story, then you'll just create a self-fulfilling prophecy. She can tell when you're anxious to get a call back, so don't give her extra clues.

Mistake #3: Noisy background when you call

You want your message to be completely clear when she hears your voice on the phone for the first time. If you're at a bar, or on a busy street, or doing dishes, she has to work too hard to hear you, and will not be totally relaxed when she takes your voice in and might even hang up and delete the message without hearing it. Be in a quiet place when you call.

Mistake #4: Needing her to call back too much.

You can say "please" at the restaurant, "please" at work, and "please" at the post office, but never say six-letter word when trying to get a woman to call you back. This is because when you say "please," you are implying that she's doing a favor by calling you back. "We'll talk later" or "Give me a call," is fine.

There is definitely no full proof solution to girls not returning phone calls, but if you avoid these major pitfalls, you can expect your callback rate to increase by at least 50%. There is a ton more to the art of "phone game," but you are now ahead of the vast majority of men calling women back for dates.
