    So I gave a guy my number for the first time today.

    I was in the gym and it seemed like he was following me (or maybe I'm just paranoid), but when I got out of the shower he was getting in the sauna, I noticed he left his shoe out so I slipped it in so that when he pulled his sock out he would see it.

    Creepy? I've never done that before.

    creepy, really creepyicon_idea.gif

    You didn't give your number to a guy in the gym you left it! Without talking or him asking, or any discussion it is something a desperate person does.

    lol.. I think all that works in movies not really in real life. I wouldn't call any ph nbr I got from a nameless & faceless person.

    I like it!
    As long as he's sure it's your number. What if 2 people hit on him that day?


    Were you afraid of someone seeing you putting it in? What if he came out while you had your fingers in his socks? SICK PERV.


    One time I wrote down "you're gorgeous" on a piece of paper and slipped it to my banker while he was doing his thang on the computer. It only occurred to me in hindsight that that is what robbers do to initiate the robbery. He was grateful though, I think I brightened up his day and gave him something to talk about with his gf/wife over dinner that night.

    Well it was the other guy who cruised him, and it's seeming like the other guy is getting what he wants. Isn't that a win?

    If I were the guy, I'd throw the number away without giving it a 2nd thought...

    I'd be curious to see who left the number and at least find out who you were.

    Why didn't you introduce yourself instead of slipping a number...in his shoe? icon_neutral.gif

    I was actually in a real big rush. I didn't have the time to sit down and chat. I wasn't too sure what to do, like I said I've never done anything like that before.

    Sometimes, just strike up a conversation about fitness. If he's a regular at your gym, say hi whenever you see him with small talk here and there. When you feel comfortable enough, ask him to grab a bite to eat after the gym. If he's interested, he'll go. If not, no big deal. You keep it moving :-)

    Type in the same number you gave him on Google, right now. See what comes up. If he doesn't report you; you may want to be more concerned with what he does to you on his own.

    Congratulations for having the balls to pursue a potential opportunity. Who knows, he might turn out to be your soulmate. I don't think it's creepy at all--crafty, yes.

    I agree. Bonus points to you for making the play. Don't listen to the other experts.

    Finally!!!!!!!!!!

    maybe creepy, but at least you did something instead of...

    A the least, it may add to your confidence; next time, you might actually talk to him or someone like him.

    You know what, if this was your first time, then kudos to you for taking the step. You'll probably learn that this will be completely ineffective in getting him to call you, but you live and you learn. Now, the awkward part will be if the two of you do connect, and you give him your phone number again, he may recognize it from.....his shoe....and get a bit freaked out. Then again, he might be flattered as hell as you went through that kind of trouble to do it and it may work in both of your favors. It's very possible that he might find it especially cute since it was your first time giving your number out and you were nervous. Now, if this is how you always give your number out, then that would be creepy.

    I don't think it's creepy. icon_razz.gif I'm curious to know if he's called tho. Personally.. I would be curious. I mean, he HAS to know it's a guy. His shoe was in the mens locker room. And he got it in a gym so that's potentially a good sign. There's usually only two kinds of people in a gym. Fit guys.. and guys who want to get fit. It's win/win really.

    I used to wait tables, and would get a fair amount of phone numbers on receipts. Those.. I never called lol. Mainly!.. because I could never recall much about the person that left it. So my advice is, if you find yourself in this situation again, definitely say something. Even if it's quick!

    "Hey, I don't have a lot of time on my hands, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to ask for your number" icon_razz.gif

    See? ... easy as pie. icon_biggrin.gif

    It was a gutsy, spur of the moment, impulsive thing to do that probably won't get the desired results - but - nothing ventured, nothing gained.
    Sometimes you have to take a risk, but don't be afraid to talk to the guy (or the next guy you're attracted to) and I'm willing to bet that you'll be surprised how receptive most guys will be. You're a good looking young man and a lot of guys will WANT to get your number.
