If you are in college and a guy asked for your number right away, there is a good chance that he is interested.
He may have really liked what he saw and decided to make a bold move.
Now, you should temper your desire though.
It can be easy to get carried away a bit too prematurely.
After all, this is college.
There is a chance that if he was bold enough to ask you for your number right away without engaging in any real conversation, he may be doing this with other girls as well.
If this is the case, it doesn’t mean that he isn’t interested.
He may simply be trying to gather the contact information of a decent pool of girls that interest him in the hopes that he will find one that he truly has a connection with.
That one may be you.
You should watch what he does from here.
If he starts to communicate with you relatively quickly, this is a good sign.
He may not ask you right out on a date.
He may wait it out in order to see if he is able to build some chemistry with you first through conversation.
Another reason why a guy may ask you for your number right away in your college setting may be because he wasn’t quite comfortable talking to you face to face for an extended period of time at that moment.
He may have been worried that he would say the wrong thing or may even bore you.
Some guys are like this.
They would rather ask for the girl’s number right away and call or text her later than prolong their initial face to face meeting with her.
They feel more secure when they get to use technology as a medium to communicate in the beginning.
They also just don’t want to mess things up.
When they have taken your number right away and gone off, they will have the time to create a strategy.
They will have the time to actually plan out what they are going to say to you when they call or what they are going to text you.
They would be able to actually visualize how they would like the conversation to go.
This makes them feel a lot more in control of the situation.
They would have felt a lot less in control of the situation if they had just spoken to you face to face for an extended period of time.
Now that they have your number, they can actually plan this out.
There is clearly interest.
They want to get to know you more but they want to do it in a way that makes them feel like they have the best chance at leaving the best impression.
A guy who does this may not be that good at making conversation with a girl that he has just met face to face.
He may not be that sure about himself.
He may be worried that there would be awkward breaks and silences during the conversation if he were to talk to you face to face for a prolonged period of time.
In order to avoid all this, he gets your phone number right away.
