Why Do Some Guys Ask For Your Number But Don't Call?

This is one mystery I've never been able to solve. It never ceases to amaze me. I'm sure many Nairaland girls can relate to what I'm saying here.

Why is it that so many men ask for your number, then never use it? Is this a game to them? Something along the lines of how many women can they get to hand over their number. The more numbers, the larger their egos can grow.

If this is a game, it isn't very fun for the gals. I seem to think that it is because men and women are from different planets. Something along the lines of women having strong emotions and men needing to learn what emotions are. Guys, you don't have to ask for our number if it is only because you think it is the right thing to do. The right thing to do is ask for our number if you want to use it to get to know us better. If you are not going to call, don't ask for my number!

When a guy asks for your number, it doesn't mean that he's decided to call you. It only means that he wants to have the option of calling you if the need or desire arises. The desire to call may or may not be there at the point of collecting the number and may disappear even if initialy there.

If you really want to talk to a guy on phone, collect his number. Phone calls are quite expensive, and let's face it, what do you have to offer the guy that's worth the money he's going to spend on the call? No be yanga?

Have u/ Do u call evryone on your phone list? Really it depends on what u guyz are up to. Mere acquaintances collect your # just to have sevral options when the need arises to contact you.

If he's wooing u and he refused to call. Its either your # didnt go through (at his end) even if u've been receievin calls Or he's just not serious.

Collecting #s is mainly to have options of contacting u.
Dont break your head, if u were expecting to hear from him, you should have collected his. I see no big deal in it anyway. I collect evrybody's # in case the need arises.

in the first place i dont even give out my number to just anybody (ust because he asked (what if he's one weirdo and you start wishing you never gave out the number) before i give out my number the fellow and i both have to be certain that we definitely enjoy talking to each other, bottom line... if and when i do give out my number he is definitely going to call back because he genuinely wants to talk to me

I really really Check people out before i give them my number. I just don't say "hey here's my number call me". And anything that makes me give a guy my number, must mean that i see the guy is worth it.

My guy-friends collect girls number and they don't call the girls, it's more like... "i just need it in case the need arise". While Me of course, get bored out by some people and i start regreting why i gave them my number. We girls have issues you know. When the guy don't call you, We are like "useless fool, i gave him my number, see his head he hasnt called.." But when the guy starts to call, We are like "kilo tie de self?? Won be shon mo eja ni?? Why is he bugging me?"

This kind of thing is really not a big deal. When you give a guy ur number and he don't call... Just think like this.

He ain't worth it
He couldnt get through
he's broke and cant call
he only needs your number for emergencies (like when he needs a booty call).

Half of the time when a girl gives out her number @ a party or whathaveyou, when the guy eventually calls, the girl, 8 out of 10 times answers the phone as if...... "what does this one want again?" and when the guy doesn't call the question above pops up. What exactly do you girls want from us guys anyway?
Re: Why Do Some Men Ask For Your Number But Don't Call? by hot-angel(f): 7:19pm On Oct 08, 2005
See, this case is actually the fault of both parties.. It aint the guys fault, and it aint the girls fault.

The guys should call, but not stalk. As in when you get the girl's number, call her.. Like when you get home, and the next day. Then you can decided whether or not u want to continue calling her. Don't just get her number and don't call her.

When you call, don't call like 2:00am, 12:00am and all the time. That's simply stalking. Just call to let her know, "i appreicte you for giving me your number". smiley

I see no reason why a guy shouldnt call a girl after asking for her #. Why get scared of her response. She willingly gave u her # because she doesnt mind you calling. Abi did u collect at gun-point?

That said, I still insist there isnt any big deal in this. If he doesnt call, why break your head? By so doing, you're only saying u wish he called. So why didnt u get his # then?
Re: Why Do Some Men Ask For Your Number But Don't Call? by hot-angel(f): 8:09pm On Oct 08, 2005
I don't think it's right for girls to be mad if a guy dont call them. I know u gat to think "why this fool aint calling me".. But don't go head over heels tryna give urself hypertension (my friend does that and it pisses me off).

that's true.. But if u r like me oo. I really don't get ur number if you collect mine. I just don't Do (no reasons watsoever). I just give you mine... even if u offer yours, i'll just say, "i'll save it when u call". You get? wink

Why not the other way round. ladies give you their number without you asking, to get yours. And they end up calling you like crazy, that you always have to create an excuse to avoid em. Thats if you mistakenly accept the call, What about that?

I for example, only call a lady when I really need to talk, otherwise I don't even know where my phone is.

A guy only calls if he has interest in either a "no-strings" relationship (just plain, forgot the p word), or maybe beyound that. Otherwise he just keeps the number for emergencies. I think some ladies are just too demanding and hypocritical. (mum) I just can't buy the idea that a guy has to fit into that word "criteria" before he has the rights to ask for her number, which would bring about a result, otherwise he should just keep mum. Calling a lady at 2am does not denote stalking. It shows that the guy couldnt sleep without thinking about her, besides he needs to hear her voice before he goes to bed. Equation solved.

So If a guy calls you at 2am or 3am, appreciate the gesture. It took some ego and love.
Re: Why Do Some Men Ask For Your Number But Don't Call? by hot-angel(f): 8:06am On Oct 09, 2005
True that.. but hello... a guy called you 9:00am and said bye, he called 12:10am and said bye, then he now called 2:00am and said hey, i just wanted to say 'nice talking to you earlier and i'll call you tommorrow'. Hell YEAH that's sweet. But when you do that errday , that's simply stalking (to me). It's annoying and i seriously wont pick the phone anymore.. or i pick and tell you, someone's on the other line, i'll call u later.

more often than not,when a guy gets a girls no,he l always be willing to call her.but if he fails to call at the moment,it doesnt mean he doesnt remember you or something.i dont also see why the guys have to always offer their no's first. I think the girls should also ask for a guys. Its not always a protocol for the guys...

Re: Why Do Some Men Ask For Your Number But Don't Call? by shockreaction(m): 4:24pm On Oct 11, 2005
Well, there's this thing called buffer time... the appropriate time to allow before you call a girl whose number you just got.
If you call too early, she might take you for granted.
If you call too late, she might think you've lost interested.
So, it's all a matter of figuring out the right time to call.

Of course, this may not always be the case ^_^
