Why do guys give cell phone numbers instead of home numbers ...is that a clue they are taken?Page 3 of 17    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17)
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...

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

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

Can you say "stalkers"??? I don't blame anyone for not giving out their home number. I don't remember the last time I gave a guy my home number... people are nuts these days- men and women alike- and you have to protect yourself.

hmmm well I don't judge guys who give out there cell numbers..

see the reason why is cause I myself don't have a home number.. I never used my home phone and couldn't justify having a home phone and paying for it when i'm not using it.. so I disconnected and soley use my cell..

so don't automatically assume they are married.. they might have a similar situation to mines.

If a guy is "legitimate" (in this case, I mean "single"), he probably is giving out out his cell phone #, because he has no land phone or he is more likely to be available via the cell phone.
However, the best way to know if he is legitimate, is to ask to call him after 9 PM, especially on a Friday or Saturday night. And do it a few times! If he is married, then he will not be able to take such a call that easily. (A wife will "cramp" his styleor his game!) If he is single, and has only a cell phone, then he will be able to chat for a while.
And on weekdays, call after 9 PM are free on most cell phones!

There are other sign which will steer the way towards a man being married. Besides the phone, here are three:

1. He will rarely, if able, be available to see you on weekends or overnights.

2. You will never see his house or apartment.

3. You will never meet a member of his family, especially a child.

The phone situation will only be an "alert". If any of these other three sign appear, then it is time to ask questions. And if more than one of the three are in place, get out! Drop him like a rock!
