No, it's because he is worried he'll give you his number and you'll never call him. Plus, it's usually up to the guy to initiate, so what appears more confident to women and shows attraction? Asking for their number, which takes some courage and shows that you like them and would like to call them, or giving your number to some girl and just sitting back and hoping she calls you one day? I hope the guy you REALLY like doesn't come along one day and ask for your number, because I guess you aren't going to give it to him, right? :)
I prefer they ask for my number just because when a guy drops off his number on a piece of paper, that really seems like he's just looking at me like I'm a booty call. Don't ask me why...I have more respect for guys who have the guts to ask for my number first.
Not necessarily , some guys ask for your number because they think if you take their number you would not call so insted they take your number and they do call, well for me they do, because usually if I take a guy's number that's because I'm not going to call him and I didn't give him my bacause I don't want him to call me.
NO! WRONG! Sorry, but I always give a guy my number and girls should do this. It proves...that if the guy is really THAT interested in you--he will call. If he dosen't you find out that he wasn't worth you're time. Also, when you give your number..you have the upper hand. Now on the flipside, when you take his number...you have to call him...and he may not be interested...
