Default girls giving out phone numbers

Hey, I just have a quick question. If a girl gives you her cell phone number via an email message, without you asking for it, although you asked her earlier for her email address, and gives the number for no specific purpose, what is one to make of that, especially if the girl is someone new whom you've met and spoken with???

Does it most likely mean that the girl likes you?

I'd appreciate input from the ladies.

I'd say she's given you the number b/c she wants you to call. If she didn't want you to, no number. Good luck!!!

I don't know if you can jump to the conclusion that she likes you, lol...but it probably means that she is interested in finding out if she likes you.

Also, it really depends on the circumstances.

Like if you have ever met her in person.

If she gives her cell phone to abslolutely everyone she meets.

If it is even the right number

Why don't you just ask her? Hey, does this mean you want me to call you, or is this only for emergencies? lol.

Well, you see, I don't know. I've met her in person three times and talked in all with her for maybe 30 minutes. If she likes me, then why is she taking so long to respond to my email? She said that she'd do it today, but I have not received any email yet

Maybe because she forgot, or didn't think about it or was on the fence. One way to find out...ask her

My goodness, her not getting back to you could be any number of things. We can't possibly know. But you'll have a better understanding if you give her a call. And you don't necessarily need to ask about the e-mail. Allow her to bring it up and see what the tone of her voice is when she hears it's you calling.

How old are you by the way? And her?

Take care,

CARose

Mad,

I know you had asked for input from the ladies, but I wanted to drop my $0.02 worth about this sort of situation...

1. Conversation via phone (or better yet, in person) is far preferable to email. I spent four years of college getting politely rejected via email before realizing it was more efficient to just call her up. If she's not interested, at least you'll be putting her on the spot to come up with an excuse.

2. Take a deep breath and relax about this particular girl. Don't be in a hurry to rush into a romantic relationship. Start out with just friendship, and if things progress from there, great. If not, at least you'll still have a friend.


If you do talk to her again and it goes well, you might suggest going for a walk around campus or something like that. You can get to know each other better without all of the overhead of an actual "date".

Good luck!

Don't fret about getting a response late. I learned that the hard with with my girlfriend: we were always in daily communication, and I went on vacation and one of the days I didn't get anything from her at all in response, and I thought she was mad at me or something or just ignoring me since I was gone...in reality her e-internet was busted. The things I look back on and say, "Dang was I foolish!" Be patient and all will be fine.

Relax! School has just started and maybe she didn't get an opportunity to check her e-mail yet.

Ok, thank you. Whenever I see her alone in a public place, I go up to her and say hello and talk with her. She smiles when I talk with her. If you could just pray St. Raphael for me, that would be great. I felt so much at ease talking with her. She's 18 I think (maybe 19). I'm 22. So there is a little age difference, but not too bad. thanks!

Remember all those cheesy sitcoms from the 80s and 90s? Like Cosby and Saved by the Bell?

Theo would approach a girl, or Zach and Slater would approach some girl or another, and they would all tell each, "Be cool, man, be cool!"

I think this applies in this situation!!!!!

Relaaaaaaaaaax and get to know her as a friend before setting any expectations for where the friendship might go.

And pray that God leads you in the way of His will.

I remember Saved by the Bell. I actually remember watching reruns of that on tv. Yeah, I know that it's best to know her as a friend first. That's what I'm trying to do. I mean, I'm excited that it might go further, but friendship is good enough for now. If you could pray for that at least, it would be great!
