Most relationships have to start somewhere, and they usually start with communication, either in person, online or by telephone. Although a face to face is important at first, as well as online written communication, a relationship cannot progress without the coveted phone number. How would we set up a date, or a second date without it? Getting someone’s phone number can be challenging. Sometimes it’s real easy. Some men have made an art out of getting it. Some guys can get a phone number after saying just two sentences. But what is the proper way? Is there one? Giving a phone number out has become a casual form of saying yes to a future date. If a phone number is given, it usually means there is a green light to ask that person out, barring that it is a correct phone number given. So is there a proper way? Sort of. Don’t ask for a number unless you intend to call them in the near future. Don’t give out your number, if you are not willing to communicate again with that person; hence if you didn’t like them, don’t give them your number just because they asked. Don’t give a fake number. Be honest and just say NO! Giving out your number doesn’t mean you definitely want to go out with them, it just means you are willing to talk more with them and maybe find out a little more about them. Also, when you do get a phone number, text the person right back, so they now have your number too. This way they will know when you are calling them, and you will know if it is a real number. If you then call them the next day, and they don’t answer, you may get the “I am really not interested” brushoff. Good luck!
