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.
