Especially if its a girl youve only had a few conversations with and barely know them.

I wait three days. Not really on purpose, but because I have things going on in my life that I forget for a few days.
#3 Posted by cpo335 (5463 posts) -
Coupla days. Or until I have a long stretch of time where I am free to make plans or something.

2 days

Don't give into that 3-day waiting game nonsense. Call her up tomorrow (as it's too late tonight). If she wants to play games and thinks less of you for not waiting a few days, then good riddance.

Depends what your objective is. If you're thinking of trying to establish a serious relationship with her it shouldn't matter. However, if you're trying to look cool, give it a day or two.

I agree with this. Just call her when you feel most comfortable.

I usually wait until she's out of earshot.
#10 Posted by perphekt (1096 posts) -
Call her right away. Right now. Get off gamespot, and call her. Duh.
#11 Posted by Paladin_King (11832 posts) -
You're already too late. You should've called her immediately too make sure she didn't give you a fake number.

Touche. I would like to add that you should call her when you have a reason to.

This. I would make sure I made enough of an impression on her before I got her digits, hate to waste both of our times and, it would be really awkward if I call her up and she say "Who are you?"....

The thing is. She probably doesnt even remember me. We only talked a couple of times. She probably already forgot she gave me her number.

Or you could make up a reason. Do you have a class with her? Call and say did you write down the homework (even if you already know what it is) and then talk a little more and ask if she wants to hangout sometime.

waiting the "three days" is dumb just call her when you feel like it.

I was but now I think not. Im gonna ask a girl from my school to homecoming instead. My feelings are confused.

Within a day or two for me, don't call on the same day though.
#28 Posted by aRE-you-AFraid (3236 posts) -
No less than 2 days, and no more than 3 days.

#30 Posted by AxeStrangler (1889 posts) -

I wait one day, no more, no less, but it really depends on the situation.

#31 Posted by Sajedene (13718 posts) -
I'm with all the guys who said DO NOT WAIT 3 days. Who made that rule up is an idiot. A day is good. By the third day, you could have lost her to the guy who called before you did. I know I dont wait for anyone... why should I wait for someone who obviously isnt excited enough to want to go out with me? Desperation pfft... if the girl gives you her number, she wants you to call. I dont give my number to people I dont want to hear from... do you? The best thing to do is when you get the number, or to get the number, plan the date right there - but a vague one. Like, "So lets do something sometime, maybe this weekend... let me get your number and we can plan something out." Then when you call the day after or two, you can actually have a reason to and have the date.

Coming from a girl, If I were single, and gave a guy my number, and he waited 3 days to call me, I'd just tell him I'm unavailable. if you couldnt make time to call me the next day, why should I assume you'd make time for me if I were in a relationship with you? the only girl you'll hook if you wait a long time to call (unless for good reason, somebody dying/sick, or she knew you were going away for a few days) is a desperate, clingy, throw-herself-at-you, "please please date me I want to look cool too" girl.

Oops! Sorry! THREE GIRLS :D You were all the way on page one... by the time I got here it was all a jumbled mess and my brain cells are done for the day *more rambling excuses* but yeah... we girlies dont give out our numbers to guys we dont want us calling. :\ So really... why wait? Just call.
#40 Posted by Gunnerman007 (8038 posts) -

well i never waited actually. i always called a day or so after to see what she was doing the coming weekend and maybe to see if she wanted to hang out or go out for a bite to eat or something simple like that.

what would be the point of calling the first day seems clingy/desperate to me but hey i'm just a guy :(

I don't think it's clingy or desperate at all. If you don't call her fairly soon, she'll give up on you. It shows you're interested when you call in good time. I don't mean call her five minutes after she gives you her number, but generally if I gave somebody my number in the morning I'd hope for a call before 10 pm, and if it was after 8pm, I'd hope by 3pm the next day.

I'd say somebody who calls sooner rather than later, shows they're eager to get to know you, wants to be around you and wants to do things with you. That makes a WAY better boyfriend than a guy who just says "whatever" to everything.

Whats the point of making yourself interested in me and taking my number down only for you to suddenly not be as interested and wait 3 days or more after? If I am not worth your time... you're not worth mine.

Heck, I was already probably expecting you to ask me out right then and there but you didnt and asked for my number instead. So I give it... then you wait to call? Really?

Its only desperate and clingy if I DONT give you my number and you still figure out a way to contact me after.... its like get the hint then.

Actually, if a girl wants a call that day or pretty soon, she is desperate and clingy and not the type I would want to date.

Exactly, if the girl likes you she'll be flattered that you didn't make her wait three days anxiously for a call

:)

Cept, now i feel like an ass, cause i don't give out my number to guys. Ever. :(

Therefore, i'm not really in this conversation, except the fact that i understand girls and i understand the guys... on the subject, however, i get from a girls point of view that a girl wants a guy to call if the number is given and i'm a girl that gets girls numbers and i call the girls straight away, because i, in turn, understand that the girl wanted me to call or the number would not have been given to me. Because i am a girl. And they are girls. And... *sigh*

Oh forget it.

I win. Bottom line.

And a guy who normally waits too long is the guy who gets to watch the girl be with the guy who called sooner.

If you didn't want to call her asap, why would you ask for her number in the first place?

also sajedene = completely correct with what she said there, too. Early bird gets the worm.

Who said after 3 days? If a guy calls within 3 days (especially from a busy guy), that means he is interested.. It depends on the situation. Guys shouldn't use getting a girls number as a crutch to ask her out later and not in person.
