Have you ever met someone you like and you feel that you want to get more acquainted with her? Are you lost for words on how to ask for her number? Asking for her number doesn’t require a lot of practice and research, there is no special way or technique about it. All you need to have is confidence and proper etiquette to talk to her no matter what the circumstance or how difficult it may seem. Some men don’t have the guts to ask a woman for her number, not because they are shy, it’s because they are afraid of rejection.
To help you get the number of the woman you like, here are some tips:
Know her first before asking for her number
If you already know the woman, call her by her name. If not, look for someone who knows her and ask for a formal introduction. Once you get acquainted with her and you are eager to ask for her number, don’t! Start a conversation with her and keep it active by asking questions. The woman doesn’t like giving their number to passive communicators. By asking her interesting questions, you are making her feel that you really want to know more about her. Just be yourself when talking to her and avoid getting nervous. Remember to keep the conversation interesting by constantly smiling when talking to her. This cheerful gesture will make her feel comfortable while talking to you. Then towards the end of your conversation, say something like “I enjoyed our talk, it would be nice to talk to you again. May I ask for your number?” If you get rejected just take it lightly and move on, at least you have overcome your fear of rejection and shyness. Take it as just another day of “practice” on the field.
Don’t take too much of her time
Keep the conversation as brief as possible because you may never know if she is in a hurry so don’t take up too much of her time. As long as the conversation is focused on getting to know her and there is a good connection between the two of you, that’s all that matters. You may be surprised if suddenly she gives you her number long before you ask her to.
Friends will help you get you her number
If you are in a situation wherein you are ready to ask her number but you see her with her friends, don’t bail out. Be confident to approach them but don’t only talk to the girl you like, talk to all of her friends. Making a positive impression to her friends will increase your chances of getting her number. Well, you know what they say: win her friends and win her for sure.
Respect her privacy but always look for an opportunity to get her number
Sometimes a woman doesn’t want to be disturbed. There is a time and place where a woman only wants to hang out with her friends or just to be alone. If the idea of not seeing her again makes you want to go ahead and talk to her, then do so discretely. Remember, she may not be up for it, so expect a little icy-cold attitude. But if you come off as someone she can be comfortable with, then you may be in for some good luck.
Women like an intriguing guy
Now that you are engaged in a great conversation with her, it’s about time to make her want you more. Look for an opening where the conversation is really getting interesting, and then make an excuse that you have to leave. You might think it’s ridiculous but it’s not. Leaving a great conversation hanging is a good technique to make you appear as “intriguing”. If you do this, you may force her to think when you are going to call or when she will see you again. If she is somehow showing this demure gesture of wanting you to ask for her number, then just do so.
It is better to ask her number and hear the results, positive or negative (in your face) than only to think about it. Just spent time wondering “what could have been” is wasted time. Don’t be afraid if a woman doesn’t want to give you her number; simply respect her private space. But now that there is nothing wrong with trying to ask for a girl’s number. It will be good for you to understand that even if you fail at any given chance, still not wanting to give up on the next opportunity is more important. The sooner you accept this, the sooner you’ll raise your confidence. The next time around might just be your lucky day.
