How to get a guy's phone number?

I'm friends with him on Facebook, but we only message each other when we have to ask a quick question. It would feel weird to me to carry out a longer conversation via Facebook messenger, so I'd like to get his phone number. How can I do this without seeming too awkward or upfront about it?

  • I had this girl constantly liking all my pictures on facebook for like a month. I never met her but we mutual friends. I eventually messaged her and got her number. She later told me she was too nervous to ask. It's honestly as simple as asking. It doesn't come off as desperate if you do it right. If you wait too long, you build this unnecessary anxiety ridden vibe with them.

    I always tell people if you're attracted to someone, just make it evident. No shame in that. People are generally flattered when you let them know they are attracted to them. How you followup on that is what puts you into the category of desperate/creepy or potential girlfriend/boyfriend.

  • I'm not sure if you like this guy, but if you do there is one way you could go about it.

    Step 1: Ask if he wants to go do something with you?

    Step 2: If he says yes, say ok cool, what's your number and I'll text you?

    The good thing about going this route is that you can avoid the awkwardness of asking for the number by making sure he wants to hangout.

    If you only want to make it easier to say, ask a question. Just be like hey, I don't get on Facebook often. Do you mind if I text you instead?

    Then bam, you're in.

  • "We should text" "text me"
    It's better to have some rapport and have a good conversation, even brief, then ask.

  • Just ask him and tell him just what we told us on here. I'm sure he'll understand.

  • version 1
    tell him that you want to text more often with him, but you re not that often online in FB so you ask if he wants YOUR number, he will call or text you
    Version2:
    Just tell him you want to hear his voice or you want to talk with him directy, again YOU give him YOUR number sohe got to do the next step

  • Why is it weird to carry out a longer conversation on Facebook messenger? It's actually a texting app too.

  • Do start a longer conversation, taking minutes to reply each time and then say something like: this isn't practical. Wanna talk about whatsapp instead?
    If he responds positively, give your number.

      We have a class together and volunteer with the same club every week

    • 28d

      You can let him send you a picture of a page in a book or so, or you can just be straight forward and ask for his number, I don't think its a very wrong idea

    • 28d

      We have a separate messenger group for the class, so I can't use any of the typical excuses like asking about the class bc we use the main group a lot

  • I would probably just talk to him in person and ask him for his number! It seems like that's just easier than having some big elaborate plan.
