Just like meeting rather than being picked up on the first date, it’s really no big deal.As you know, married people are a bit cautious to give out personal information on an online dating site.
I’ve encountered very few men who have a problem with this.

What you want to convey (in your own writing style) is essentially, ‘.’ I also like to tease them a little and promise that I will only call 15 times a day. ‘I don’t have a phone,’ ‘Let’s stay on email,’ or ‘How about you give me YOUR number’ are all BS.

Approach Let’s face it, the purpose of jumping through all those hoops online is to meet someone. This is a nice touch, but make sure it is CLEAR you are kidding.

Besides, your profile doesn’t say very much about you, so maybe if you tell me more about yourself, if we click, then, maybe in a few weeks, I’ll give you my phone number and we can go from there.” This is the entire reason that I came up with a strategy that works for both men AND women.
