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.0

Just message him "hey, send me your phone number. I want to text you". People overthink these things too much.2
