If i get a positive response to my initial message I will usually give out my phone number in my more detailed follow up message as well as my facebook url. It amazes me how quickly men give their phone number in the first contact.

If I have a true interest and feel that the interest is mutual, I'll offer my number.Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate. When is it the right moment to slip in the phone number in your email conversations?
