Why do guys give cell phone numbers instead of home numbers ...is that a clue they are taken?Page 4 of 17    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17)
First off, a lot of people don't have home phone numbers. Second, i feel more comfortable giving out my cell, because they can't reverse trace the number. I had a date once, reverse track my number and stalked me for weeks >_<

I don't mind giving out my home and cell numbers. My home phone is forwarded to my cell phone 99% of the times anyway. But I will give my cell phone number first and then after a few conversations, give my home number or call from it.

Another point.. Who cares... if he gives you a number, call him... if you like him enough to care if he's taken go out with him until he takes you to his house or it's obvious there is someone else (because he never offers)...

Because they are living at home with their parents and they don't want Mom to pick up the phone.

Cell phones are a far better tool to reach someone without have to play v-mail tag. Mobility virtually guarantees you immediate contact. If the person is in a meeting and cannot take your call he can send you a text message explaing why and that he will call you back.

Home phone numbers are good too have if he has one. But if he always carries his cell, you have been to his place and he is honest the why care about any other number?

The fact is I would worry more about a person that doesn't want to give you his cell number or that he doesn't have one to begin with.

You can call my home (867-5309) anytime you wish.

It limits their accessability. I can ignore my cell phone as i'm the only one who answers it. I live with three other people if you call my house their going to put me on the phone. I don't always wanna talk. :P

In short, no. In my case, the land line gets used for the computer, the cell for everybody else. Besides, there's a better chance of catching me with the cell, since it goes with me. My brother hasn't had a land line for years.

us guys give out our cell phone numbers becouse ! we can see the number as it comes up on screen , we write it down for security in case we get dodgy calls from it, or you may be nasty , if the number is with held you dont answer, and i consider my home line for my close friends an family so until i built up a trust with you i would ask you to call my cell if of course i was lucky enough to get a response lots of kisses deano x.

Cause they can leave their cell in the car and not explain who all their calls are coming in from. They are trying to hide something.

having only one number keeps women's pretty little heads from the trouble of tracking 2 numbers






kidding. Sort of.

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 have both, but I won't give out my home number unless I've met her a few times and actually like her.

For me, a home line is more personal than a cell phone (don't ask me why - that's how I feel about it) and it means that I'm comfortable with her and that I trust her.

I don't know what the situation in the States is. But my number is not listed so hopefully my details can't be traced. You can also keep your number secret when you dial if you want.
In the UK too, a growing number of people don't have landlines. However I find that most still do. I'm happy to give out my landline. And I've had too many dodgy experiences to trust guys who won't give out their landline. Ok I miss out on one or two genuine ones, but I miss out mainly on cheaters. No landline = no deal. It works for me.

Ferron, kidding, sort of, you're not. Cause when the guy brings it in the house and it rings at 2 or 3 a.m. every weekend, a girl has to know who is calling.

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!!!
