Yes, you are victorious! She finally gave up those digits to you. There’s no doubt that it is an amazing feeling. It’s the last piece of the puzzle when you are trying to grab a woman’s attention. Once you have her number, it’s all downhill from there, right?
Not so fast buddy, there’s still a bit of work left to do.
You know she gave you access to communicate with her, but what do you do now? What does it mean?
What It Means:
- She really likes you: Generally this is the case when you meet a girl and she dishes out her number to you. Especially if she had done it without hesitation and very shortly after having met you. She might be in the dating game right now and you just happened to come along at the exact right moment. Girls tend not to give their number out to random men unless they see some potential in them. Whether it’s because she just wants to hook up or because she’s looking to actually get to know you better. Either way, she’ll only give out her private information in those situations.
2. She Wants You To Go Away: This will usually be the reasoning for her giving you her digits if you have been bothering her a lot. Have you been repeatedly asking for her number? Did she seem annoyed when she gave it to you? If so, she may have just given it to you so that you would stop asking. The best bet in this case is to check the number and make sure that it’s not fake. Often times women will give out a fake phone line because they want to appease you, but also never want to talk to you again. It’s a cruddy situation, but it happens all the time fellas.
3. She Has A Favor To Ask You: Sometimes there are things that we prefer to discuss privately with someone. Like asking for a favor or talking about a mutual interest/person. Most likely if this is why she has given out her number to you, she will make you aware of it before hand. She will say something like, “Hey I have something to ask you. Here’s my number. Shoot me a text later!” What if she doesn’t make it obvious? How are you supposed to know this is why she is giving you her information? You just have to wait and see. She gave out her information first because it must be a delicate deal and she wants you to initiate the conversation for it. You might guess this is the reason if you two have previously been talking about something secretly or have a dilemma to resolve.
4.She Wants To Plan A Date/Event: She might swing out on a limb and give you her number solely because she wants to see you again. Exciting, right? We think so, too. You will know this is the reasoning if she seems adamant about making plans with you for the future.
5. You Have A Project To Do Together: Are the two of you co-workers or classmates? She may be giving you those numbers because you two have work to do together for school or for your job. This is not uncommon between co-workers and school peers. They often have to keep in touch for this reason.
What Do You Do Next?
We know that you must be pretty jacked up to hear she wants to continue speaking with you digitally. Whether you’ve known each other a while or for a short time, it’s always refreshing to get someone’s approval to text or call them. Even though you are excited, our best advice to you is to take it slow.
How do you do that?
Do not text her immediately. That is definitely a bad idea. The last thing that you want to do is appear desperate to her.
How long should you wait before contacting her?
The rule of thumb for texting a girl: 24 whopping hours.
Yep, we know it seems like a long time, but texting her immediately might scare her off. Even if the two of you are simply friends.
Be polite with your message. Use proper punctuation and don’t use any creepy pick up lines.
What do you do if she doesn’t respond right away?
Do not panic.
She might be busy doing something else. She could be at work or with family/friends. Don’t write off a conversation just yet.
Give her up to 24 hours to respond to you. This ensures she has time to see it and get done with whatever she was doing previously before responding to you.
If she hasn’t responded within another 24 hour period, go ahead and shoot her another text.
However, if she hasn’t replied after that, then there is a good chance she never had any means to reply to you and she was just giving you her number to get you off of her back.
