Meeting someone in person requires advanced planning. A cute-but-casual locale must be selected, a convenient-but-not-desperate date and time must be agreed upon, and two human beings must actually show up. Because there are so many logistics to be planned and no one wants their phone blowing up with dating app notifications when you’re five minutes late — No, three! Ugh, train traffic; meet you inside! So, how soon is too soon? And when’s the right time to exchange numbers? Here are three surefire signs it’s time to offer up the digits.
1. You’ve Already Talked About An Actual Date
You mentioned that you love ramen, and your match mentioned an awesome spot where they are a master at getting last-minute Friday night reservations. If you’re already talking time and place, offer up your number. Golden recommends waiting to share your number once a date, time, and location are confirmed. “I’ve noticed that switching to texting from messaging has a high drop-off rate,” expert explains.
2. You’re Both Slow To Reply To Messages
Sometimes, you end up Tinder-ghosting a cute and interesting person you’re attracted to simply because you forgot you were chatting with them. Because you’re communicating through an app. it’s easy to forget to check back in with a potential partner about how their Monday was. That said, if you give your number to a match too soon, you run the risk of endless banter and date rescheduling that never results in an actual date.
3. Your Match Asks For Your Number
If someone you’re interested in is messaging you on Tinder and asks for your number, this feels obvious, but go ahead and give it to them. You don’t have to withhold your number because it might lead to becoming “text buddies,” and you shouldn’t worry that you’re not making them “work hard enough.” When it comes to giving out your number, do whatever you feel comfortable with.
