Especially because giving out your number is something you can’t take back.Unless you change your number, of course, but nobody’s done that since middle school.If you are on a personal connection, like at home, you can run an anti-virus scan on your device to make sure it is not infected with malware.
I actually do like this gentleman, which is unusual for me. I figure this is as good a time as any to float a pretty non-controversial theory of how to be successful in dating. Okay, so you know what a Venn Diagram looks like, right? I always ask for the man’s phone number, and offer to call him.When you, the guy, decide to contact a woman online – you already know that you find her attractive enough sexually based on her photo, and you know that you want to meet her.The woman who gets your message and checks out your profile, on the other hand, will most likely have a neutral opinion of who you are or just slightly better than neutral, unless you are strikingly good looking, or unless your profile is very interesting or both.I’ve tried being more calculated, spending as much time as possible getting to know a person before popping the question.I even, regrettably, studied the controversial tactics of pick-up artistry to gain the trust of women I was interested in.The art of getting a stranger’s phone number will forever be perplexing.There’s no right way to ask someone who knows nothing about you to offer up her most direct line of communication.Getting a woman’s phone number is an important step towards dating and/or intimacy.It is also something that many guys fumble with because they realize that it’s a make it or break it situation.In most cases, however, as pointed out earlier, her impression of you will be neutral, and it will take some time until she becomes intrigued by you and interested enough to look forward to meeting you.One major exception to this rule is those girls who are considered serial daters.
