If you’d like to see the person again

If you’re interested and want to stay in touch, give out your number, but also get the other person’s number. If you only give your number and don’t get a ing for a call. So make a deal. Say, “I’d love for you to have my number, and I’d love to have yours as well.” Exchanging numbers has the following benefits:
  • You can give the other person a jingle if he/she doesn’t call on your timetable.
  • You don’t have to be passive or nasty, just a co-equal. No more waiting around for a call, and no more fuming because you never heard from Prince or Princess Charming again.
  • If the person turns out to be a bozo, you have something to fantasize about pasting on bathroom walls — “For a good time, call. . . .” (But don’t do it! Paybacks can be really harsh.)
