Why do guys give cell phone numbers instead of home numbers ...is that a clue they are taken?Page 13 of 17    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17)
Absloutely not. It is easier to reach me on my cell phone because I'm not home that often. Some people might not have home phones. The only reason I have a home phone because it is necessary for my home alarm system.

I basically just don't use my home phone. its just there for DSL and emergencies. Actually, I don't even think I have a phone hooked up to it right now. Cell is cheaper to use anyway.

I am not a guy, but I give out my cell number (instead of my home number) cuz they have a better chance of getting a hold of me on the fly. Sometimes, I'll give my home number if I'm not too too anxious to hear from him...he can wait till Im home and good and ready to chat haha

Well in my case, I don't even have a land line anymore. Internet service is broadband thru cable co. Don't see the point in a land line anymore.

i do do that too. not because i am taken, but because i don't want them to be able to find out my personal information. for example my address. all that is traceable through your home phone. i don't even have my home number listed.

From my experience, a man usually does this when he is married or attached.

I think for a lot of people this is simply availability. It's easier to get ahold of them.

The other thing, as a woman I'm a little wary of giving out things like my number or adress to people I haven't met in person. This can be a saftey measure too. It's the first time you've talked, he has the right to use his cell phone as a phsyco-filter, in fact I think that's a rather smart thing to do.

Not always.

I simply don't have a land line. For me, there's no point. I work 12 days on/ 2 days off. Even if I had a land line, I usually wouldn't be there to use it.

I have Internet service through my cable company, so no need for dial-up, or DSL.

But most importantly, my cel carrier's plan has unlimited local, and long-distance calls; unlimited text messages, and picture mail; voice mail; and is with me all the time for the flat rate of only $55(USD) per month!

Who needs a "home phone" anymore?

I know I give my cell number because that is what I use as my home phone and used that for my internet. Also just because a guy gives a women a cell phone does not mean he is taken. I know with me working 12 hour days 5 days a week it is easy for me to used my cell as my home phone.

Cell phone numbers can't be looked up whereas landlines unless unlisted can be looked up to show the guy's name and address.

I and many people I know only have a cell phone and no home phone. I don't see the point in having a home phone when you can get internet without a number thru the cable company and Yes even thru the phone company you can get DSL without a number. Plus who is ever at home anyway?

I don't have a home phone. I figure why pay money for a phone line when I'm never there to answer it. My house really doesn't have anything to say. If someone wants me they can get ahold of me 24/7 on my cel. I use cable for internet as well. I didn't want to pay for a phone line just to get ADSL. I use skype for long distance and my cel for everything else.


If you want to get ahold of me, call ME. again 24/7. Not my house, I'm not paying money for it when it can't even say anything.

OP...

Hellooooo..... If I don't give my home number out, I control when, where and if I talk with you.

I know that "some" men give cellphone numbers, no home phone, because they are involved or married.

BTW.. Some women only give out a cell # to reach them. What up wit that?

Well,my number is given out(my cell that is) to people i wanna do stuff with..My buddies and a woman i maybe interested in....Atleast that way i dont miss the call..I live with a buddy of mine and i will not always get my msg,hell half the time he dont even answer it...Plus,if im haveing an intaimate conversation i can wals away from prying ears.....I also have my phone's blue tooth mic and head set in my motorcycle helmet...I can be contacted any time for anything...wink wink..

Although my family has both my home and cell,i usually call them from home..Its cheaper than long distance on my cell..

SO!!!!!!!...which one of you sexy ladies wants it,and my # too . ..OK OK OK dont all for it at the same time..

I rarely give out my home number. Only when I feel comfortable that I don't have a stalker on my hands will I give out that info. Plus, it's always easier to find me on my cellular anyways.

HI girl,
I've been in the telephone business for about 22 years. When I get home OR at work, I hate answering phone calls. I give out my cell # because it's more convenient. I'll answer it. I only use my home phone to make long calls as I use Vonage and get free long distance. If you want my home number, shoot me a line, but once again, I'm never home except to sleep.
You have a valid point though, watch out fer the wierdoes
Take care of yourself & be cautious. ( like these little smileeees)

C ya soon,

Phil

I agree with some posters, It's easier to reach me on my cell. I have a landline only for internet. I was thinking of getting rid of it and get wireless or cable for the internet, however I saw a documentary on NYC during 911 and officails said cells didnt work, only landlines did. So for safety reasons, I'll leave it on. And to those of us that have landlines, dont you agree, all we get is sales calls, gggrrrr, lol
Ladies, do not give your work numbers, if you get a whacko, he'll be able to reach you.
If nothing else they would be a pest.

I too only use my cell. My land line the ringer is even turned off. I don't have caller ID, call waiting or voice mail on my land line. If you want to get a hold of me call my cell...leave me a message, I'll call you back!

It comes to this, I only give my cell simply because until I get to know someone, I don't want them having my home number, could be the same thing
