If someone is overly cautious about this, then buy a prepaid cell phone and use it just for internet dating.In real life, before computers, you would not slip your number to someone behind a wall, whom you've never seen ,..of course not....Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing... Johnny I agree that giving out your phone number in an initial message is way too aggressive and will most likely backfire.Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate. When is it the right moment to slip in the phone number in the email conversations? My preference to exchanging phone numbers generally happens after about the 3rd e-mail from each person.
Nine times out of ten you'll receive a reply with her number asking you to call.When you’re a single lady it’s important to keep dating safety in mind at all times.One issue that you should think about is the safety of giving out your cell phone number to new guys you’ve just met, such as at a party or online -- especially if you haven't even met the person face to face.That means that anyone with a little cash who has your cell phone number could potentially retrieve private information about you.That includes your full name and the billing address of your cell phone account.Of course, if you have been chatting, texting, or emailing with this person ALL DAY long, giving her your number on the first day wouldn't be such a biggie.At this point, you are probably asking her out for a meet/greet.You were correct in saying that it would be okay if the other person were to block their number until they felt comfortable. I would say that it depends on how comfortable you are with the person that is emailing or chatting with you and how the conversations are going.If you feel that this is the person that you are sure would not freak when you give them your number, then give it to her.Becoming less interested tends to speed things up if she is interested in you, but slow. Such as voice tone, ability to carry a conversation etc.ONLY AFTER YOU HAVE MET HER IN PERSON, and you know for absolute SURE you want to see her naked..... Sometimes I may lose interest in a person after a phone conversation.
