How long is too long when it comes to guys picking up that phone and calling you? 1 week? 2 weeks? What is the window of opportunity?
Probably 2-3 days is best if you didn't get into any quality discussions with her and this was only a physical attraction between the two of you. But if you were able to actually talk to her and got an inkling as to what her interests are and what she is like as a person, then it's okay (imo) to call her up later on if you want to ask her out and do something of special interest to the both of you. Like if there was a good live concert to go to or exhibit of her favorite artist. I wouldn't mind if I gave my number to a guy and he called me up weeks later to invite me to some cool event that he had tickets to. I also would cut slack to anyone that might not call me up right away because he has an interesting busy full life. Of course, no one is a mind reader, so if you are that kind of busy person, let me know that.

If I haven't heard from you within a couple of days, if you do bother to call, I'm going to tell you I'm no longer interested. I hate game playing. If you are interested, why can't you just call?

I agree; however, a couple days is the minimum for me. I usually give it a week.

A lot of gay men do not date. What usually happens is a meet up at a public place to reconnect from the first meeting, and then going back to my place for a make-out session. Doesn't happen often.

I've only been on a few real dates over the past 6 years.

I'm not gay and I certainly prefer to meet in a public place. It's my comfort zone, crowded and in my own car so I can escape if needed.

But..I don't take them home for a make out session.
