I have been doing online dating for awhile and for me it comes down to chatting to the girl on the website, getting her number, calling her and asking for a date, going on the date, and then seeing if we would continue with more phone and in person conversations.
When doing this just recently a girl said on the website that she prefers to meet up before giving out her number. This paradigm interested me and makes total sense from a girls perspective for security reasons.
My question is for guys and girls that do you prefer giving out your number before or after meeting in person for online dating?

I prefer to email a bit first. Then live chat alittle, Then talk on the phone, but the guy will give me his number & I'll call him and block my number until I'm comfortable with him. Then we'll meet in a public place. I don't give him my home address for awhile, again, until I get to know him well. You have to remember, he is a stranger, so he's not coming to my home until I know more about him. I don't even give him my last name until we've met & I know there's going to be a 2nd date. No reason to. I have been on 8 1st dates, or "meetings" and I knew I'd never go out with them again, so why give out my name & # to them?0
