So I got a number what do I do now. Page 1 of 1    
OP - if you're really interested in this woman, you won't have any doubts about picking up the phone and ringing her again. If the interest is real, there is NO 3 day rule, or any rule at all regarding when to call. YOU JUST DO IT!

Why do people keep saying 3 day rules??? WTF??? why is it so hard to just call someone if you both are interested and you have a number. Unless it is a rule of your own...??? CALL. A lot can happen in 3 days. Especially when people get bored easy. And yes, try twice if she doesn't answer. Sometimes people work, go to the gym, shopping, yanno...lives away from the cell phone...lol

A week is too long. Get to dialing before it's too late.

You know, you can still actually call someone if you're not feeling well. I don't know why some guys think their fingers won't work because they caught a cold. You can let her know you came down with something but are still interested in seeing her.

Something to think about next time.

As for the second call question: Sure, why not. You have nothing to lose. But I wouldn't keep trying after that if she never calls you back.

I don't know...but, it seems that every guy I have ever personally known...being sick was quite dramatic for them..even a cold..they could barely move off the couch...lol..

There is no three day rule..personally, the sooner you call, the more tickled I'll be..( some women may disagree..but, most seem not to)..plus, I hate the wondering..and after a week..I'd assume they weren't interested..but, if they called then and sounded plausible..I would give them a chance...

Call her.

This past weekend I went to a bar and beyond all odds ended up actually meeting someone and having a nice conversation.

So you both had alcohol. That's a plus because it's great for when I go "who" when you call. Then I can say, well I was tipsy, please refresh my memory.

Screw the three day rule, seriously. I give out my number 10 times a night and have no idea who they are. I used them for drinks and talking. First one to call me gets lucky. And even then I don't remember them. They text me the next day with "hey". Oh I'm supposed to remember you? Ummm no. Put some effort into it and pick up the phone to talk. Men are becoming like women now. It's ridiculous. Grow a set already!

Call the number if you like her. Stop with the games (ie, the "rules").

The likelihood of it being a bogus number is high. In which case, this post is wasted space.

No wait........................it's wasted space anyways.
