Depends on a situation. If he's a stranger from a street, I'd be just very suprised but I don't think you ask a stranger's number to be friends. But I would ask what for )When a guy asks for your phone number, do women understand that this means they are interested in them romantically, or is there alot of guys out there who ask for your phone number because they want to be friends, so you cant be sure?
I will say it depends on environments, sometimes at work and at college its hard to tell, but if its at the club... then... lol However, sometimes guys have wanted to be my friend actually, and was just too scared to ask for my besties number directly or something.When a guy asks for your phone number, do women understand that this means they are interested in them romantically, or is there alot of guys out there who ask for your phone number because they want to be friends, so you cant be sure?

We've been married 5 mins and you're cheating on me already? lolI asked for a women's work phone number at a business meeting one time. I figured it was less intrusive. But, she seem shocked and asked why with an almost angry look on her face. I thought it was obvious because we were flirting with each other most of the day. But, I played it off by saying I wanted to talk to her boss about her and then laughed. She didn't give me her number and she stopped flirting. I wasn't sure what to think so that was the end of that.
A lot of guys are looking desperately for ANY sign and many are quick to take flirting the wrong way. They shouldn't read in to flirting, that's their issue, but it's also prudent to consider that any seemingly "innocent" flirting can come with big risks. Be careful with that stuff.But yeah some women do like having a playful light flirt but, can kinda get shocked when a guy actually pulls her up on it and makes his move.
Yeah there's a thick line between being playful and leading someone on I think, however, that line is easily blurred by people who like to over step the line, feelings or sometimes others social or mental challenges. I waved at a guy nearly every morning, said good morning and thought nothing of it, he became a little obsessed with me and my mum was like.. "how could you do that, wave to a man every morning, you're not a kid anymore... he'll think you like him!!" I was so shocked, like wahhh?? from a wave??... but she wasn't wrong, thats what happened.A lot of guys are looking desperately for ANY sign and many are quick to take flirting the wrong way.

Oh... yeah.. that should be my ringtone at this pointBaby! It's not what it looks like. Ha! Ha! She means nothing to me. Trust me baby. Ha! ha!
I'm sure you'll be hearing that sometime during your life if you haven't already.
This is usually where someone will wheel out ye olde tired, condescending "sElF-iMpRoVeMeNt" advice.
*sarcasm* oh, but it's easy, don't you see?! Don't be yourself!! Just be Keanu Reeves and say this to all the ladies...This is usually where someone will wheel out ye olde tired, condescending "sElF-iMpRoVeMeNt" advice.
I think the Tom Selleck/Magnum PI/ John Rambo/ Zardu Hasselfrau look is no longer in vogue.It's like, I like to joke about going to the gym, buying a sports car, and being maximally stereotypical cornball '80s macho man. But if it were that simple, every lonely guy would have done that ages ago.
so far nothing about your posts here suggest you are all that, if that is what you are worrying about. I can say I enjoy reading your posts, you articulate yourself very well and you're thoughtful plus funny too. But yeah, you are maybe being a bit too hard on yourself by overthinking.If you're just a normal guy, it feels like you'll be written off as boring/incompatible/no chemistry, because you won't be able to say or do anything to make someone feel strong enough emotions, fast enough.
So my opinion about self improvement is this... now dont kill me as it's just an opinion. If a man is not falling into any of the categories below, then sure, he should ignore all advice to self improve for dating as he's probably got something unfixable wrong with him... But these are the areas that make a man particularly undesirable in mine and most of the girls I know (age range is 19-31) opinions...
1. Still living at home with parents / can't drive
2. Obesity / Overweight / hates exercise / won't eat healthy portioned meals
3. Personal hygiene could use a more consistent routine
4. Not seeking help for mental health issues
5. Porn addictions (usually can tell as they get very graphic what you are trying to have a little flirt)
6. Poor income (expects me to provide for him)
7. Dating gurus!!! crappy advice.... (this ones mine lol)
8. Wants someone to date them out of pity...
9. Denies any genuine interest as "too good to be true"
10. Creepy... Thinks the same approach works for every guy, it wont.
11. Can't speak to girls he finds attractive
12. Thinks every girl "gives it up" on the first date
13. Jealous and over protective (a little jealousy can be attractive but not too much)
14. Wants to re live high school teen days at 30+ (there is no time machine... I want a "man" if I go with older).
15. Cries a lot... (now this is toxic, but I'm being honest, I don't want a man that cries more than I do)
Now this is just my and all my friends opinions, I could say things a little more controversial but I will skip them out as I don't wanna seem like I'm trolling or to hurt anyones feelings. The list is what can be changed, I didn't put anything that cannot be changed (I don't think)...
Self improvement should not be used specifically to get a date. It's more for you, to feel better about yourself. Every single person on this planet needs self improvement. If they say they don't, they are an egotistical liar.This is usually where someone will wheel out ye olde tired, condescending "sElF-iMpRoVeMeNt" advice
I don't think you want a man who ever cries. It sounds typical of Female Dating Strategy posters; mix in a some reasonable sounding criteria and that which implies a desire for stoic provider type. Your first sentence is extremely arrogant and I get the impression you have never needed to ask a member of the opposite sex out before, put yourself up for judgement and dealt with rejections.
