Reach out and touch someone?

So while questions usually work better on blogs that see a lot more visitors than mine, I am really, truly curious about this, so help me out if you can.

Do you have a general sequence you stick to when contacting someone from AdultFriendFinder?

What information do you give them (i.e. e-mail addy, land addy, IM handles, phone number), and do you hold back some of these things longer than others?

The only major thing that got started for me from this site was, i think, slightly abnormal in that we were both so computer-friendly that I almost went the entire course of our friendship without knowing her phone number, because we set up everything online.

Anyway, what do you prefer?

Normally I keep emailing back and forth on here before I give them my IM screennames. I'm just very selective in general. I don't even like adding every Tom, Dick and Harry to my IMs because I feel that's a waste of time if I'll never keep talking to them. My cellphone number is only available to those whom I trust and I am meeting.

blog address, group setting meet and greet, im chat, phone number

Not necessarily in that order with the exception that I start with the blog. It allows you to get to know the person better. {=}

just a squirrel trying to get a nut

You are asking the wrong person here, I don't contact that many people. However when I do I usually just spend sometime getting to know someone before I give out any contact details. If we get on then I'll share my IM and/or email address. I'm not really a big phone talker so they have to special to get my number or for me to ask for theirs. If they are someone that I want to talk to on the phone well there is no real reason for not sharing my address, given time.
Anyway thats my etiquette routine.

sassybelle - that sound just about exactly like the way I try do do things, except that i don't mind giving my IM out to a lot of people. I'm a chat whore -- there, i've said it.

mofun - I agree, the blogs are a really great way to get a feel for someone. what's funny is that i don't ever write my blog thinking of it as a way that people will be getting to know me, more as a way of getting stuff out of my brain ... i wonder what people reading my blog think i'm like?

papy - i like the meeting for coffee part! and of course the chatting for ages. i came out of the closet as a chat whore already this post...

Man77 - i'm glad that some of you people whose blogs i like seem to have a similar idea of how a connection might work.

play - hmmm.. you let me know when you're heading to Florida, and I'll send you my number, yea?
