When I give mine out, it's just so they can reach me. Or so they can call if they're going to be late.

I do it too because if you had my home number and some research skills you could get a map to my house!!! And that's only the beginning of the information you will get.

It's a scary world and I'm not taking any chances so call me at

313-879-4856 if you'd like to chat!!!!!!!

I think it an excellent idea that women in particular give out their cell numbers as opposed to their home numbers if only for the purpose of security. Type in Reverse lookup sometime in Google and put your home phone number in one of those provided boxes. You can get a map to your door my friend. Cells are not listed like that, yet. I don't have a home phone. Just a cell.

My home phone is my cat's first name and my last name is misspelled!!! Kind of like a "porn name" - no one will find me if they are looking too hard!!!

I don't have a home phone...all I have is a cell phone...I haven't read through this forum topic, but my guess is I'm not alone...

Well . . . I just moved and realized that I really have no need for two phones. Most people I know have the same company’s phone I have (or an associated company) and I can call them anytime at no charge wherever they may be in the U.S. Anyway, I just got a great cell phone package and it’s a lot cheaper than I was paying for my home phone alone. So, that’s what I use.

Heya HotPink...

I suppose it's possible/even probable that some guys are doing this. In my case, I have broadband cable access at home and don't need a land line. It has occured to me for people to wonder about that, but it has never been an issue for me.

Thats what I do,/have done (I don't have a cell right now)
I had been seeing a woman for a while, and she never gave me her cell phone # kind of made me a little mad.
thanks, Tony D.

I give my cell phone number due to the biggest it is my only phone. My personal line no matter where I am at. Also If I am really interested in someone I can't miss there call. it stays with me all the time.

nope, it means they don't want the stalkers doing a reverse seach and finding out where they are and "stalking" them.

It means they want to be able to be reached any time and anywhere.

I don't give my home # because now anybody can now where you live if your phone is listed just by going on Google and making a search.

No not at all taken there are some people who don't even use home phones anymore,sometimes it might be a guy has a roomate and the roomate pays the landline bill so therefor you can't use it so no it doesnt mean he is taken

I'm coming into this one way to late to bother reading all the previous posts but my reason is simple.

It's the 21st century, the only voice phone number I've had since december 1999 is my cell phone...

I may have had access to a landline at a few places since then but it was only ever used for outgoing dialup internet access. I couldn't even begin to tell you what the number was and it wouldn't have been answered anyway.

Besides I skipped out on the last Sprint landline bill I got for $76 and I don't have any intentions of ever paying them a dime of it after 5+ years so Sprint isn't ever going to open another landline account for me...whatever, don't need them.

Just got overlooked, had a lot of stuff going on at the time and once something gets turned over to a collection agency fuggetaboutit. I only settle with the original creditors, period.

My reason is simple. That's all I have. Why pay for two telephone services when you can use your cell for everything.
