You Haven't Got My Number

Wolfie is back from a Saturday night out and I have to admit I have been a very very bad wolf indeed! Put it this way I have a big grin on my chops! I have had a wonderful night out and I am on cloud nine, seventh heaven, call it what you like but you know the feeling when you've been looking forward to a night out, you treat yourself and everything goes really well, so well that you feel that you are on some kind of happy pill, a drug! I am still on a high, probably why I can't sleep LOL! It's my second night out this year, I have met some real nice guys but straight away I tell them I don't do relationships any more and I am very happy single I have had a few guys offer me there phone number but I refuse point blank there is absolutely NO way I am ever giving my number out in view of a relationship, I am not going through the last nine years of hell again! I am just having fun and that's it. A couple of guys were a little taken aback and one even did try to give me his number but I said NO. I was quite pleased with my assertiveness! We had fun, that's it, I go out for no strings, fun, that's all I ever want now! So when you go out on the town and you meet a stranger do you give him or her your number? Or do you just play the field, take it no further and a case of thank you and good night!

Well done you hun! Good for you that you feel confident enough to refuse numbers and be open about wanting to stay single. I personally don't give out my number to strangers (erm considering I'm happily married, that's probably a good thing) but even when I split from my ex husband and went out with friends I didn't give out my number to random people as I wasn't going out with the intent to pull, just to enjoy myself with my pals. Some people don't get it and I've had guys being quite stroppy in the past when I've said I was single but still didn't want to exchange numbers. Don't some people get that you're out with your friends and you just want to enjoy your time with your immediate group? :)

Good for you! Yes I get the persistant onces, learning to be assertive is the key if they don't like it it's their problem and if they can stroppy can you imagine what they'd be like 24/7??? Men eh? Just little boys some of them ha ha ha!

I have to think back...way back to my single days. Whether I was wanting a relationship wasn't the issue. It's whether or not I enjoyed the person, and wanted to see them again. If I felt that I wanted to spend some time with them again, we would exchange numbers. Just because you have someone's phone number......doesn't mean a relationship. They could just turn out to be companions to go out and have fun with.

As usual you have some valid, sound points my friend, and a different complexion on the discussion, thanks.

Good for you sweety - we all need to enjoy ourselves sometimes and it is good to see you happy and with a smile on your face! You know that I am more of a relationship type person - even if David and I have been engaged for more than 10 years! lol Whatever works for you is fine by me - as long as if you can't be good you're careful!!!! I would love to see you settle down happily but that is just the bossy big sister part of me and who knows maybe in years to come it'll happen for you sweety, love you xxxx

Hello dear wolfie. If I were in such a case, I would never tell my number to a stranger because I would not be happy to be bothered by a stranger and I would not feel safe if my phone number is let out to someone I do not know. I think that you are right not to tell a stranger your phone number. Stay safe, dear wolfie.

There is a lot to be said for caution, wolfie, especially once you have been through a bad relationship. Hopefully, you will regain some of your trust as time goes by. We do tend to make comparisons about others once we've been burned, but we have to remember that all people are not the same. Who knows, that perfect someone for you might be just around the next corner. Take your time because you are still young.

If I were single again I would definately sit back and enjoy myself for a while. I wouldn't want to get into a serious relationship so quick out of the starting gate. Live it up while ya can.
