They certainly look good compared to some on here.scottey63As usual very sane advice. extreme viewpoints that represent a minority - including those who are rigid about gender roles - often accompany the loud voices that can dominate i was dating, i always phrased it 'here's my number (123-456-7890), or you can give me yours if you prefer to be the one called.' virtually all the women i was emailing gave me their numbers. for cell phones.""we're not all as blessed as you to have extra money for several cell phone for internet dates."Ahhh, few mistakes there, the several are for business, I have one for personal use, and never got the one for only dating. "They certainly look good compared to some on here."Well since I was the object of your wrath, I assume you are speaking of me. Most of the responses I read, were agreeing to having their number blocked for the womens safety. I will attribute your ill manners to pain or feeling outside pressure resulting from your medical issues.
You need numbers to be able to call if there is a delay with a meet or some such. Just dont answer the phone or let it go to message. Although, if your gonna post angry posts, try and keep the facts can get free phone numbers. you can get free phone numbers from google voice, whistle phone, Skype.
So if a big part of a womans concern is what kind of men are so crazy, why wouldn't they for 20 or 25 dollars a month, buy a throw away cell phone for dating?
I mean it speaks to their issues, adds a degree of safety at a minimum cost.
I am all for it, since it's a safety issue, and two people meeting online as strangers, but I hear some guys are not cool with this because it interferes with the traditional male courtship process. I know not all men are like this but taking these precautions, even if it avoids one, is worth it - but no, not all men are cool with it. It only takes a small number of bad/scary stories about number exchanges to have everyone out in panic mode.
As men, should we feel more inclined to co-operate in these cases if we want a date? I've never had anyone abuse my number except for an ex-friend (female) because she was paranoid that her ex-boyfriend was interested in me. My point is, it's probably very rare for anyone to be a stalker once you give them your number.
The first meet will not make you safe from any harm anyway. Without hearing a voice I would never agree to meet and if the numbers are not given out, have to wonder why.radiantspirit What happens if you cant make the meet or he cant? you can do video chat on yahoo messenger, Facebook, and other types of chat messengers. i know that if i had to change my cell number, sprint will allow me to change it as many times as i want and for free.
The only questions he asked me were regarding being a homeowner, number of bedrooms here, how many bathrooms, you're getting the picture. Following the call, I messaged him, wishing him luck and saying that at this stage, I thought he had more then enough to deal with - and the abuse started. Now, it's one thing to 'stand by your man' but another thing to be expected to finance a complete stranger. If I can't call her, I'll just pass and tell her I'm not interested.I expect to be able to talk to someone first to determine if meeting in person isn't a total waste of my time.I generally don't give my number until after meeting.Lately, with online dating, when it came to the phone call and meeting....I would ask for her # to arrange a meeting, she'd always say, "Give me your phone # and I'll call you." And then she would block it, and it would come in as "private".One said she won't even give out her # until they've met first meet.I'll continue to trust my intuition and my judgement of character in general. Then if they stalk or harrass with messages it doesnt interfere with your main communications and you know who would be ringing.
