So within meeting someone on here, how quick are you to give out your personal number, email, social media?

Do you have multiple conversations/interactions or do you jump on it?

I'd give it at least five years....

Five years? That's a little extreme don't you think?


Very few get my number and only after I've decided that I genuinely like them.

@irascible wise


Very slow, I'm hesitant to give out my # or my last name, and I will give my # first and there's always the block function. It takes a while to get to know someone and within a few calls their true colors will usually emerge, good or bad.


I met someone here after a comment on my post led me to PM him. Email followed, then phone. It happened relatively quickly but we hit on all cylinders right away, and are still going strong, having met in person with plans for the future. Your mileage may vary, but each case on its own merits. Previous encounters varied with phone or email, after trust was well established.

Ive seen enough fake profiles and phishing/catfishing scams to rule that out in a couple messages. if I’ve seen her around n begun talking with her Id be fine giving her my number within the first convo or two but I don’t presume most women can or should be that ready to oblige, so I probably don’t suggest it til we’ve been talkin a couple days at least, with a lot of perceived interest, and in a very low pressure, whenever you’d like sorta way.


Many have asked. Only 1 has it. And didn't ask for it.

Really folks?

This is a dating site. First, Ignore the bio's.

If you haven't read every response they posted here to see for yourself what a person is Really like before giving out your phone number then you shouldn't even be here or online or own a smartphone or vote or drive a car or be out in public.
Quit being afraid.
Do some homework.
Heck, we even have a group here called Deviants. No one is forcing you to go there either.

If someone bothers you for any reason block them.

Lol i agree with the spirit of this advice but good luck trying to read everything Ive ever posted ladies. You got a couple weeks vacation saved up I hope?


Multiple interactions. Generally a few pm's back and forth at least. I think half a dozen people on here have my number and perhaps 10 are on my fb list now.

Do I have your number?


If there is a problem you can always block a phone or block on here.


I’m ok with texting outside of the site. I typically don’t have multiple conversations as far as dating someone or a potential date. I prefer to sort of focus on one person and see where that goes.


I don't give out any of that until we've had a pretty lengthy conversation. It really depends on if they can keep my interest with intelligent conversation as well.

Love this answer!


When I received a PM from Dan saying He would like to have the opportunity to get to know me I was a little dubuius because I had spent several weeks texting with a new member who ended up being a scammer who asked for money. I suggested he get to know me in my Singles Chat Room which he joined and was an interesting contributor with all participants. That led to us PMing here,FBing and talking on the phone for hours and meeting a month later. We fell in love-and plan on moving in together soon.

That's so awesome. Best wishes.

There is hope!


You can call me at 911!

that's what you call open to meeting???


Depends on the feel I get talking to them online


I am cautious. Especially with my phone.
These days you can find out lots with only a cell phone number. I am a bit of an investigation buff. What I have located over the years would frighten and astound you.

I'm prepared to be frightened and astounded. Hit me with it.


I've gotten to where I make sure somebody isn't a scammer first. They tend to ask for your number right away.


I like to wait a while before I give out such information. Which, for me is a good strategy, because I have met some true weirdo's, fake profiles and sex junkies that eventually revealed themselves to me over time. smile005.gif


All depends on the person and my gut feeling.


I've noticed a recent , sharp , up trend in the number of contacts I've received , recently . Couldn't think of anything I'd said recently , to cause it . Then I thought of some photos I'd posted recently . Um Hum . So now when they ask for more contact , I do give it to them , but I also tell them about the scammers I'd recently been approached by and my , " Never wire anyone money ," rule . The scammers eliminate themselves immediately . I never hear from them again .

I haven't talked to anyone on this site yet, but I agree with others that it depends on how the conversation is going. I am on another dating site and have exchanged phone numbers several times so far some the same day we started a conversation.


It depends on each person.


It depends on the nature of the conversation. I've talked to about 6-8 people over the phone...and I've met 3 so far. If someone is genuinely interested in learning about Veganism, I share my social media....and email also depends on the why do they need it? I've shared an eBook with a few people...that requires email.


im ok with giving a phone number too and texting to get to know him better
waiting to see how long it takes him to screw it up or to be a good friend even if it goes no further
and pay attention to syntax of the conversations online if they use the wrong tense or it sounds weird dump them


I don’t give out my phone number easily anymore as I got scammed on another dating site a year or so ago and to this day get annoyance calls that go to my voicemail and hang up after four seconds. That being said, I think like everything else, you need to take a chance on some people, because in the big picture, what else is there?

I agree with @LadyAlyxandrea.
