Do you think it’s the norm for a guy to ask for a phone number off the bat on Facebook? I’ve been so out of the loop on things but I feel like giving away my phone number is such a HUGE step, even when he is my friend on FB. What do you think?
Facebook or Phone Number?
Dear Facebook or Phone Number?
I usually try not to meet men on Facebook, but if you do then why not give him your phone number? When you add someone as a friend, they already have access to your photos, status updates, and friends list. They can see photos of your children, family, friends and even know where you are if you “check in.”
Assuming you don’t have stringent privacy settings, you are putting everything on Facebook anyway. You accepted his friend request. He KNOWS you now! So, why wouldn’t he ask for your phone number?
I actually believe It is alot more personal to add someone on Facebook than give them your phone number. When you speak on the telephone, you can omit information about yourself. When you add him as a friend on Facebook, he can Facebook stalk you!
Bottomline, a profile says a lot about a person. If that’s your only reason to deny him your phone number, it isn’t a logical argument. Still, my motto remains – do what you feel comfortable with! It is your phone number, your Facebook account, and your love life.
Love strongly and wisely,
