Here’s a great question from a Fantasy Dater: Dear Fantasy Dating, I’ve definitely gotten way more gutsy since we started this game, but I’m not unshakable. If I ask a guy for his number and he doesn’t ask me for mine, I’ll be mortified! How am I supposed to just flat out ask him? -Daring Dana Great question, Daring Dana. Say you meet someone and chat for a few minutes and realize you don’t want to miss a connection. Just say, “Hey, this was fun. We should get together when we have more time. What’s your number?” The great thing about asking for a number is that the answer is a reflex. When you pull out your phone and start to punch in his name, his reflex response is to do the same thing. Think about it, people respond reflexively doing everyday things. Like when you walk your dog, pass a neighbor and greet them with, “Good morning!” Their reflex response is, “Good morning,” right? Don’t worry, granted that he is remotely attracted to you and has enjoyed his initial time spent with you, when you pull out your phone, he’ll pull out his. And if he doesn’t, ask yourself, “So what?” Okay, maybe your ego is a little bumped, but it’s not the end of the world. In fact, it’s the universe telling you he’s not the right guy for you and making room for the right one to come along. For more ideas, check out Fantasy Dating’s Top 5 Ways to Get His Number.
