Most girls who are interested in you prefer that you ask for their number instead of giving them your number first.
When you ask the typical girl for her number, she has a sense that you are interested.
Should you ultimately use that number to call or text her and start the process of getting to know her or ask her out on a date, her suspicions are confirmed.
Oftentimes, a girl wants to feel like she is actually liked by you and being pursued by you.
When you ask for her number, you are being assertive.
She isn’t entirely certain of what your intentions are but she knows that you have made a move.
She will then leave it to you to contact her and start getting to know her or ask her out on a date.
There is a certain level of confidence and bravado when you ask a girl for her number.
Many girls will read this as a sign that you do have some level of confidence and are not afraid to go for what you want.
There are circumstances where giving the girl your number works better than asking for hers.
For one, when she asks you for your number first.
Well, when she does this and doesn’t offer to give you her number, she has a few reasons for doing this.
She is playing it safe.
She would rather ask for your number in order to avoid any safety or security issues, as she is being cautious.
She asks for your number first and doesn’t give you her number when she is actually not interested in you and is trying to end your interaction with her on a polite note.
She has no intention to use your number but she doesn’t want you to leave feeling like this was all a waste.
In a scenario like this, you should resist the temptation to be pushy.
Should she only want you to give her you number and not give you hers, do so and be on your way.
Getting too pushy with wanting hers as well, turns her off which kills the likelihood she contacts you.
Giving her your number first is a better move in certain circumstances, such as when she is extremely busy and focused on something else.
Perhaps you are trying to talk to her at her work or while she is performing some function.
She doesn’t want to be bothered with an extended conversation that leads to you requesting her number.
She doesn’t have her phone around to take your number.
By writing your number down on something and handing it to her or giving her your card, you are giving her an easy out.
In other words, you aren’t taking up her precious time, allowing her to decide whether she wants to use that number when she is no longer preoccupied.
Giving a girl your number in this way shows that you are considerate and this aids in winning her over.
This being said, in most circumstances, it is best to ask for her number first.
