    If you get chatting to a guy and he just gives you his phone number (without you asking for it) is it any different than him asking for YOUR phone number?

    depends, some people have self esteem, some are desperate, you judge as you are talking with him. I am guessing there is no connection as you wouldn t care to ask this if there was.

    Yes, there is. Especially when they write it down in a piece of paper then hand it to you without them telling you what it is then dash off. It's like a hit and run.

    If he was a girl and you both were in a beer commercial chatting each other up when you were slipped that phone number, would you even be asking such a dumb question? icon_lol.gif

    It's very different.

    How do you know he's not just giving you his number for attention and to have his text messages busy? A lot of guys are like that. They say, "here's my number!" and then when you call them they either don't answer or they'll respond to 1 or 2 texts and then disappear.

    That's why in situations like that is better to say, "thanks for the number, here's mine." That way, if he's really interested he'll call you. And you just let him know you're interested by giving him your number so there's no reason to think you'd not be interested...

    I personally would never give a guy my number if he didn't specifically ask for it. He either has to ask for it, or give me his...in which I then give him mine.

    Did he hand you his number with his left or right hand?

    What kind of paper did he use? Scratch paper? Recycled? Nice stationary? A napkin?

    Did he print his name or use script? Does the writing slant up or down?



    Sometimes it means he wants you to call him, but we need more info before we can be sure.

    Well, at least it means he HAS a phone number, which is always a promising sign. And if he writes it on a gay club trick card, I'd reply: "Why wait? Your place or mine?" icon_twisted.gif

    I have some who give me their phone numbers without any encouragement.
    I usually try and downplay it and usually mention my bf and that friends are always nice.

    This happened to me a few days ago... I was talking to a guy, we were getting along really well, and he asked to exchange numbers. So I called him the next day and asked him out. After mumbling something, he said he had a boyfriend and was just being friendly. HAH!

    It's online, so I really don't feel as if there is any risk involved on his part. People give out phone numbers out online all the time. Some even post it on their profiles for everyone to see, which is kind of lame if you ask me.

    Yeah, I don't give out my number unless I'm interested. However, someone's got to ask for it. Usually, I get a number and if I want something to happen, I'd text mine right back. It's that simple.

    If he's hot, call him. If he's not, throw the number away.

    Speaking as one who gives guys his number, I do it if I feel things are going well. It means "I am interested, here is how to reach me." If the interest is mutual he will contact me. I have expressed my interest and given him the opportunity to express his. If he is not interested I have not invested anymore time, or annoyed him by persisting.
