Flirting is fun, but getting a phone number can be scary. You feel like you’re putting a lot out there and making a statement: “I kinda like you… do you like me?” Getting a phone number doesn’t always mean that you have to be completely direct.
See below for easy ways to get a phone number (and bonus! Some cheesy pick up lines are down below as well).
Put your phone number on their car windshield.
If you’re a little more shy, or you missed your opportunity, figure out which car is theirs and leave your phone number on the windshield.
Make a little business card and write something sweet on it like “I think you’re cute” ;).
Taking the time to make it look cute is sweet and can really show that you’re really into them.
Invite them to a casual hangout later like a pick up volleyball game.
If you’re not sure if your feelings are a two way street, mention a group hangout invitation. Make sure you exchange numbers so they can get the details!
Look online for it.
Once upon a time, this may have been creepy, but it’s a lot more common these days to hunt online for info after a good conversation. Obviously don’t say where you got it though. ;)
“I can’t find my phone… can you call it?”
This is a great way to acquire a number if you’re too nervous to be direct. Once he or she calls you, make sure to save it in your phone.
Become a study buddy and “forget” your homework assignments.
If you’re in school, becoming a study buddy is the best way to get to know someone lowkey. Needing help on homework or an assignment is a natural way to strike up a texting conversation.
Write it on a comment card.
Super into the cute waiter? Leave them a surprise at the end of the night by writing your number on a comment card!
Text yourself from their phone.
If you’re the more forward kind of girl, just grab their phone and text yourself!
Leave it on a napkin.
Make sure you wear bold lipstick to leave a little more than your name and number on a napkin.
The eye thing.
You know what we mean. Catch eyes every once in a while. Let them know you’re into them, but don’t be too overt.
Got to go!
If you’re having a conversation, stop in the middle of it but let them know you’d love to pick it up later. Grab their digits and now you have an easy start to a conversation!
Now for some cheesy pick-up lines:
Your phone is nice, but it would be even nicer if it had my name on your contact list.
I don’t care if you make six digits. I just want your seven digits.
Are you going to give me your number or should I ask Siri to find it for me?
Your phone sucks. It doesn’t have my name in it.
Do you have a card in the Dewey decimal system? Because I gotta write down your number.
Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy, but here's my number, so call me maybe?
Can I get your number? Because I like you a latte.
If you had the same amount of money of your phone number.. How much would that be?
That skeleton over there said he'd get your number for me, but he didn't have the guts, so here I am.
