Why do girls give out their phone number but not respond when you call? How many times do we call before we’re considered a stalker?
Well, sometimes it may be easier for women to give out a number than deal with chatting. It can be a quick way to say, “Okay, we’re done now. Move along.” Many women give out made-up numbers or the number of an enemy or ex-boyfriend. (That’s actually a good one!)
As for how many attempts at a contact? It depends. You really have to go on instinct. My general rule would be twice. Two calls, two texts, or a call and a text. After that, you more than likely have your answer. The real key is not to become emotionally invested in an answer. Don’t let your self-esteem hang on whether or not you hear back.
An exception to the two-times rule: Every now and then, you may meet a woman who wants to be chased. Make it fun and light and playful. Send random texts that really have nothing to do with anything, funny pictures, etc. This lets her know you’re thinking about her without pressuring her for a reply.
