Have you ever taken a girls' phone number and said you would call, but then decided not to?
always slept with them at least once.
i called you anyway?
only once or twice I've done this
*gets cold feet*
*goes and plays football with mates instead*
you said I could come to the park with you
I slept with you once. Twice if you count the one where you were asleep. Three times if you count the one where I was staring in through your living room window. Sometimes, I need some space, though...
got any emo cat pics?
I don't even know who over a third of my phone book are.
'random guy' in their phone?
i have quite a few of these type names in my phone.
how could i ever phone any of these (not that i wont too) but erm 'hi! ...random guy'
in my phonebook. I don't think they were called Maisie, though
is that interesting?
ask a panel of judges.
that could've been me!!
once recently and I felt bad about it.
Although we have now been in contact.
but it's always good to have loads of girls numbers in your phone whether you know them or not. Plus, im always after new ppl to prank call!
i never think i'd like to but do as i get worried about the result.
i do it accidentally too when a super pretty girl gave me her number and saved it under Kate, just underneath Kat on my phone and i missed it.
Oh there are lots of men out there that do this.
we're all bastards.
i'm lovely, just ask my mum!
actaully, dont you owe me a beer?
what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
it's no wonder all men are liars
let's all slag off men with complete impunity eh girls? twats.
phone number, later decided that she probably wouldn't be interested in me and then didn't bother to ring.
aside from that, no, don't think so.
Never intentionally, mind. But I have a few female names on my phone that I have no idea who they are. Meeting girls when I'm drunk = pretty much pointless
once have I been given a laydeez number, and I did ring her.
I wish I hadn't with hindsight, but I did
she insisted that I shout "Go Go Gadget Knob!" every time we got jiggy...
did she make you wear a hat with copter style wings on it too?
a bit more positivity wouldn't go astray, pigfoot.
but in my defence I'm terrible with faces and can't remember what some of these girls look like and wouldn't have a clue who I was looking for if I ever rang and asked them to meet up
And I felt pretty bad about it.
this isn't the biggest crime that they have committed. BUT, why bother taking their number if you're not going to ring? Just say "nice to have met you" and LEAVE.
usually the number giving is a 2 way thing so women can contact the men if they want to
of calling, however, the next day they realise they're busy for the next week, or they just "don't get around to it", and they only have a patchy memory of the night before anyway, so just let it go. Then they'll be out again the next week anyway, will meet someone else, but then the cycle repeats.
That and the thinking time. Better to take a number, have a think about using it, and decide not to, rather than not have the number at all.
"Can I have your number? Bear in mind, though, I'll only call you when I remember, and that's only if I haven't found anyone fitter by then, anyway".
Then the girls would be wise enough not to give the number and a lot of phonebooks would be a whole lot shorter.
hand out their number to multiple guys a night, and nothing's guaranteed even if the guy does call
so it works both ways.
a high opinion of men, do you?
why would I?
is an arsehole who's constantly looking for a 'fitter' girl.
Women aren't so innocent either
In fact read my disclaimer...the bit where I say "In defence of boys, this isn't the biggest crime that they have committed".
More guys than girls do this kind of thing. We can do a survey and everything.
men are much more likely to be directly procuring female attention? nobody has ever asked me for my phone number. i know i'm pretty ugly but ... seriously ... hasn't happenned once.
stop calling yourself ugly
i can think of.
just sitting there, muttering under your own personal miserable cloud of self pity.
failures can be attributed to anything which people would only learn if they spoke to me ... so, it has to be my appearance, right?
even if you are ugly (and you aren't) I'm sure you've seen ugly guys walikg around with attractive women. Looks aren't everything
but i didn't say looks were everything ... i just never speak to women. ever. can't honestly remember the last time i did. unless you include my mate's girlfriend.
they don't bite and a lot of them are very interesting people
i've already spoken to the one woman i see on a day to day basis at work. she doesn't like me much.
and we've already already discussed the difficulties of approaching strangers in pubs and the like.
I've seen them. Approaching people is easy, nothing too bad can happen. Have you ever heard of a guy being killed for saying hello to a woman?
for an approach from me, i suspect.
and approaching people in groups is bloody hard
i've never seen an opportunity. and i genuinely cannot believe anyone would thank me for starting a conversation with them.
but most women are flattered if a nice man comes up to them and is nice.
GET OVER YOUR FUCKING COMPLEX OR YOU WILL NEVER BE HAPPY!
"most women are flattered if a nice man comes up to them and is nice."
i really don't think that that is true.
and you're almost always trespassing on somebody else's conversation if you do that
obviously if you are a knob or rude then its unwanted attention but no women worth talking to is going to be pissed off by a man coming up and introducin himself in a pleasant manner.
i think she'd probably regard him as mentally ill.
i'm not going to walk up to some stranger and say 'hi, my name is james' ... am i?
There's a million ways to start a conversation.
Sorry, Do you know the name of this song?
Do you know where x is?
In a bar/pub/club that's perfectly normal behavious. I've had a few men use this approach and I've always found it rather charming and sweet. What is a girl gonna do turn around and say "fuck off" ? ofcourse not.
we arent all man eating beasts and suprisingly enough its not our mission in life to fuck men over or break their hearts.
See Jacob, a womans point of view.
The problem is all in your head.
that I can't argue with
likely to not return calls or respond to text messages? i would suggest not.
but seriously, you shouldn't hate me for being male ... i'm lovely ... it's just girls that have messed me up and turned me into the cynical hate-filled lunatic that i am today.
I don't hate men for being male.
I just don't believe them when they say they'll call.
Or when they say they'll love me forever.
Or when they say they won't cheat on me.
Or when they say they'll bring my GALAXY and not CADBURY'S back from the shop.
cheated on me, said she loved me but lied etc etc. some people are not nice or too self interested to be nice. it's just a fact o' life
don't like men who display enthusiasm towards them. or so i read.
If u like a guy and he displays enthusiasm towards you it makes u happy!
who already like them. i was told this by TWO seperate girls so i have a source. n that.
explain this and then i will resume arguing with you.
If you ask for the number, then you want it. If you don't want it, you don't ask.
if a guy asks me for my number, i pretty much give it. i can't help it! i feel so mean saying no. bu then i feel even meaner when i then have to let them down (not up my own arse i dont know how to put that better).
and its impossoble anyway as they ALWAYS insist on pranking me while im still with them to make sure they got it right.
like an old mobile number and just say it won't ring cause your battery is dead
that works too but some people don't like to be that blunt
you dont understand! how can u just say 'no' to someone??
i am physically incapable. im rubbish :(
Say "no, sorry".
It works every time.
can I have your phone number, please! I only want it for emergencies
'Knock 'em out' by Lily Allen.
Rose didn't specify that the man had to have asked for the number. Occaisonally women ask for numbers too!
Or so I've heard
I didn't feel particularly good about it. I also gave the wrong number to a girl I didn't want to call me.
BAD BOY. You're such a playa.
I think my glasses intimidate girls because they realise how earth-shatteringly intelligent I look.
and devilishly handsome. You're quite the catch.
I'm going to add that quote to my myspace page.
page, just steal them from Cameron Jerome
Yo whar blo kid not seen u in YEARS. U see anything of leon.. big up for not givin up on playin ball. bless up.
This guy's my new personal hero.
But check out Wayne Routledge's jumper. Wow.
what a charmer! i wanna be his star bitch!
books: none yet
to a guy who harassed me on the street on the way home from TDK (remember BobbyGeorge?!). He was a bit of a fruitcake so I just did it to get rid of him coz he wouldn't shuttup. Then I saw him EVERY day for a week. I felt a bit silly then.
I think you may have given him MY number!!
You two both have the same speaking voice though...
it was me.
-=sigh=- I had this wonderful image of you in my head as the ultimate sex pest
tho he is clearly a bit of a fruitcake..
A girl once asked to borrow my phone to call someone and then put her number in it. Smooth. It took me a couple of days to realise. We went on two "dates"
That's about the only time I've ever been asked for my number by a girl.
I have never actually asked a girl for her number (that I've just met in a club or whatever) Myspace stalking after the event is the way forward.
That reminds me of the girl/stalker at work that came over and started playing with my phone. Turns out she'd rung her phone from mine to get my number, and she followed me home that night and rang me.
We kind of went out once, though I didn't know it was just going to be us; she'd told me that others would be there.
I didn't call her after that
I'm too shy to talk to a girl.
Never ge any phone number...
you must have talked to a girl
repeated wanks in the swimming pool
I managed to talk back.
Still surprised she didn't realize her mistake yet...
Do you mean someone you meet, say, in a bar? If so, then surely it is not necessarily expected that everyone who asks for contact details will necessarily get in contact. That's like saying that you should only speak to people with whom you intend to become friends.
If you mean the morning after sex then sense and experience should tell you that, sometimes, people make a decision later and ask for the number just in case they might call. If someone is not emotionally mature enough to deal with that then they should shag on the first date.
I agree with JDT!
I think you should hope that they'll call but not necessarily expect it. Who's gives out their numbers these days anyway? It's all about swapping myspace addresses so you can check out their pictures, friends, lifestyle...
although I have used the 'are you on myspace' line myself.
it was a good old fashioned conversation with lots of mutual interests and at the end, this man asked me for my number. i also have his too.
He may call or he may not. What's the big deal about it?
I just wondered how often guys say they will call, and then don't...
I'm not too fussed either way, to be honest... which is the truth.
What would the bother entail?
I have never got a girl's phone number. Feel free to PM it to me, but I probably won't call
I forgot about that
but i have no idea who "Abbi" is.
Then didn't. The next week I saw her in a nightclub (this happens a lot in Lancaster) and before talking to her changed a digit in her number. When talking to her I kept saying "I did text you!" Until eventually she decided to check she put her number in right the week before, which was obviously wrong because I had changed it. Clever hey? In fairness to me I then did text her and she took a MONTH to reply. She was also really rubbish and said crude things to me:|. Finally in my defence I have been screwed over by girls so much it is unbelievable.
glad I am so happy in love etc and have never had to get a girls number *cringes at the thought*
as they're a mate of a mate who i've met and got on well with and would quite like to be a mate in their own right.
is it wrong that, despite these honourable intentions, i feel dead smooth afterwards?
if you can distinguish between being friends or wanting something more, then that is the key deciding factor, innit.
