Giving Your Phone Number

You’ve been enjoying the conversation (or not), have been flattered by the attention (or not), and now you’re in the spotlight: Your phone number has been requested or his/her phone number has been offered. Now, whether you’re wildly euphoric or praying that the floor will open and swallow you whole, you have to respond.
If someone wants to contact you, you may be tempted to give your phone number for these reasons:
  • You want him or her to get in touch.
  • You’re not sure that you’re interested, but you want to keep your options open.
  • You wouldn’t spit on him if he were on fire, but you don’t want to appear rude.
The following sections help you maneuver gracefully through these scenarios.
