Women have different comfort levels when it comes to exchanging information, especially when meeting someone online. And if you give him your number and you’re not interested anymore? Will he stop calling or will he become that online stalker you’ve been dreading?
One never knows, which is why I suggest emailing the man in question for at least a month before exchanging anything other than your first name. If you feel you have enough in common, then skip the phone call all together and go on a quick date instead. This way you meet him face to face and can feel out the chemistry. Let’s face it; just because a guy has a cute profile picture doesn’t mean he’s actually cute in person (it may just be a good angle). Also, just because a guy is interested doesn’t mean you will feel a spark. So save yourselves the trouble of changing your phone number. Go on a quick meet and greet and DON’T give the digits until you are sure he’s worthy.
