U get her number, how long before U call?

OK, imagine you've been e-mailing a lady on AdultFriendFinder, and she finally gives you her number.

How long do you wait to call?

Do you call immediately, or do you wait a while?

My personal rule .... When I give my number out ... and haven't recieved a call within 24 hours .... I think the guy really wasn't that interested.

What are your thoughts?

I would say no more than a day or two.If she gave you her number and you've already been in communication on here for a while, then it's obviously ok for you to call. It's not like when you meet someone out and get their number and have never talked to them before that night. It's more like exchanging numbers with a penpal. Just my opinion, but go ahead and call away.

It would depend on how many times they check their e-mail and this site. Sometimes I get so busy I don't check either for a couple of days. Otherwise, 24 hours is a good time frame.

I gotta wonder though, if the conversations are going that good, why would the recipient not call?

I disagree. I sometimes wait a week or so before I get the nards to call, even when I'm very interested. I get nervous on the first phone call, and even though I'm thinking, "Be James Bond, be James Bond... " I fear I'm coming across as Homer Simpson.

I would call as soon as I was able to. Fuck all that game playing. If I asked for your number that means I was interested. If I'm interested I'm going to call. Anybody who wants to play the "wait to call" game be my guest because I'm not playing and I'm calling her first!

I always have a problem deciding when to call. Its not that I dont want to, but you also dont want to seem so desperate that you call the second after getting the number. I find it easier to start with emails then move to instant messages. Then if I am lucky enough to get a number I can set a time or tell her my fingers are tired of typing and can I just get off the pc and give her a call. But if I do get a number through email I always try to call the same day I read the email. If I don't happen to read her email the same day it was sent I always let her know that I just read it and was looking forward to talking to her.

I do agree with the 24 hour rule or at least an accessible time frame. That is, if the number is given via this site for example, and the person is unable to check their email promptly to receive the number, then it may be impossible to return a call within 24 hours. So if you are the one waiting to receive a call, there just may be a good explanation for the other person as to why they couldn't make a call. To me though, it is only polite to call the person and tell them whether you are interested or not. Just don't leave them hanging.

hmmmmmmm... I would say 48 - or 36 - in other words if you sent it at midnight and I didn't get it until the middle of the next day, it might be very difficult to call. But I should call by the very next day or at the very least write you explaining why I hadn't yet called.

Yall are all crazy! If I have been talking with her on line for a while, long enough to get a phone number, then as soon as I receive the number, I'M calling right then! Why wait another minute, you have to cease the moment before someone else does. It's alot easier to talk on the phone then type messages that you can't judge how the person talks or mannerism's are. but that is just what I would and have done.

You give me a phone number and, if I'm not involved in something pertaining to the IMMEDIATE attainment of world peace, I call immediately. The phone number was likely given with an expectation of a call within the foreseeable future...10 or 15 minutes tops. Oh, how I hate to disappoint a lady's expectations.
