Tech which makes Sense

Several articles ago, I covered some great ways to ask for a woman’s phone number. Still having trouble asking her?

If so, I’ve got five great ways you can get their phone number, but be warned…

If you haven’t used the latest ones yet, learning these won’t do you any good! You have to take action, and when it comes down to it, the best time to start is right now. So let’s look at five ways you can ask for her number, starting today…

#1 The direct approach

Okay, this is one that all men should use at least once:

“Hey, I’m in a hurry right now, I have to meet a friend… but I’ll be kicking myself later if I don’t ask for your number.”

bam! Yeah, just walk up to her and tell her that. Now I know this may not sound very strategic. But this is the fastest way to get over the awkwardness of asking for a girl’s number. Commit to doing this at least three times a week.

Trust me, the confidence it will build will be worth the rejections…and you’d be surprised how many women will actually give it to you.

#2 The “Don’t Ask” Technique

This works especially well when you’re chatting with a woman you just met and you’re both busy:

“Hey, I’m in a bit of a rush right now, I’m meeting a friend of mine for ____, but I’d like to talk to you again tomorrow.”

As you say this, you give him your phone. She will know what to do and, if you have confidence and determination, she will do it. The beauty of an approach like this is that you trust her by handing her your phone, which is a great way to start gaining her trust.

Not only that, you also don’t have to say the dreaded words, “Can I have your number?” that have the magical effect of making you and her instantly uncomfortable.

#3 Ask for the date first

You know, you’ve probably noticed that asking for a woman’s phone number doesn’t always ensure that she’ll answer or call you back. So your chances of getting a date are slim. But if you ask her out right away, you’ll get both the date and the number:

“Hey, I have to go right now, my friends are waiting for me. What are you doing on ___?”

Once you set the date, just say:

“Okay, now give me your number in case anything comes up.”

Granted, you’ll get fewer numbers this way, but you’ll also get more women who are actually ready to date you… which is what you want, right?

#4 The text approach

This is very clever and VERY effective. Asking if you can text a woman is less intrusive than asking if you can call her. Yes, she’ll still get the number, but using the word “text” will smooth it out. Now the best way to do this is to have a reason to text him.

Here’s the plan: During the conversation, ask him what he’ll be doing later that day, or maybe what he’ll be doing right now. Then you show some interest and say:

“Hey, I’ve always wanted to go there/do that, could you do me a favor? It’s a very small one.”

(Most women will say yes)

“Text me and let me know how it went. All you can say is ‘it was great’ or ‘it sucked.'”

Then: “Here, I’ll send you an SMS so you only have to answer.”

When she actually texts you, you can start a conversation that leads to a phone call and then a meeting…you get the idea.

#5 The indirect approach

With this approach, you want to make sure you have a good conversation or you will have a hard time following up and getting her to respond to your follow ups. Engage her in a conversation about something you saw online, it can be anywhere. During the conversation, you tell her that you are going to send a link to her phone.

Most people these days also have phones that have internet access, and you can send him the link and ask him to text you and tell you what he thinks. If the first conversation goes well for you, you can usually turn this into something.
