Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc.Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing... This is one good reason I do not give out my number until the woman gives me hers......"tit for tat" kind of thing! Id rather ask for his, and call on my cell (my work #).Accept that dating online will involve some chasing.If you find someone who catches your eye, send an icebreaker or a friendly email.That was back in the days when people still had land lines and published their numbers in the phone book.A person cannot find out where you live by your cell phone alone, unless somewhere on the public internet you wrote "My name is [x] and my phone number is [x] and the address associated with both is [x]. Unless you're dating a guy who works at NSA or is a computer hacker.Please register to participate in our discussions with 2 million other members - it's free and quick!Some forums can only be seen by registered members.
Using the phone is a brilliant idea to allow him the space to ask to meet you.
Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate. I've met a guy on here and he seems really nice and sincere. But my only problem is that I'm nervous about giving a guy my number after we have only been talking a few days. After talking to him a few times, you may feel comfortable with giving him yours.. If you are not comfortable, do not do it, and just email each other until you are...know this.....you ask for his number, be prepared to give yours up too!! I do not like the endless emails, especially when they live fairly close. I must be that oblivious to dangers then because I give out my number even after one conversation from here. I've met up with more or less 15 guys from on here since I joined this site on January 2011 and, fortunately, I have not been in any harm or danger yet even if I have dated dangerous men.1) If you've been sounding confident, natural, direct and yourself all along, then giving him your phone number now shows him that you really are that forward, gutsy, laid back type...which you don't seem to be2) if you've been sounding desperate, putting on a fake overly friendly tone, giving him your number validates that you're desperate..you even know why you're uncomfortable? he can't do much with a cell phone number other than calling you.you're just not mentally prepard to let him hear your voice, then don't do it..you'll just end up sounding weird I would recommend getting to know them first before you give anyone your number.
Should I take a chance or wait until I'm completely comfortable with it? This is a dating site, What is the big deal about actually meeting? I like to hear the voice and the vocabulary, you do not get the nuances in writing. If they want to talk they can IM you over your Internet account or give them your face book account.
You’ve met someone you’re interested in online, but now you’re perhaps a tad frustrated that your budding relationship is seeming more pen pal than love interest — which, of course, begs the question: How do I move a new online relationship offline?
Do you find yourself writing someone or multiple someones online daily but haven’t actually met any of them? If you feel comfortable or if he asks, offer your phone number as a way to reach you to start to take it offline.
