I feel that you can judge any person in one meeting.......so there's no harm in giving your phone no to that person...Would you give ur no to someone u meet just once or twice ???

No, I don't think I would give my number to anyone I just met once or twice. It's not because I don't easily trust anyone. It's more like I'd rather get to know the person first the way I think it should be, be it on a friendly or professional level.

I think this is best judged on who you meet. Sometimes you just know based on your gut reaction and if you don't give your phone number out, how will you reach them? The real question is: Do you want to see them again? If you do, that's the first step toward trust.

I find myself doing it pretty often, actually... But my situation might be little different... I do that with business related people... When I'm in a social setting with few of mutual friends, usually I'll tell person that our mutual friend has my number & if he/she wants to get a hold of me, they can go through my friend... I trust most of my friend's judgement... If I'm out & about alone, I usually go by my gutt feelings... I know I'm not right all the time but my gutt feelings haven't done me too much of harm yet...

I really don't think I could judge a person by just meeting them one time. There's more to a person than meets the eye. With that said though, I have given my number to people I've just met. Usually it's because of a common interest or common friends. I see no problem with giving out your phone number when it could prove useful in your career or some other opportunity. Each time I have given it out, it was because I sincerely wouldn't mind talking to the person again and getting to know them better for whatever reason. I would never give my number to anyone I wouldn't want to talk to again. There are too many nutjobs in the world. For that reason I have another number through Grandcentral just in case the situation is unavoidable. It's an actual number they can contact me on and I can screen calls or block someone's number if I had to.

To me it depends on the situation. Obviously I have to want further communication with this person. If I don't think I could be friends with them, or my kid could be friends with their kid, then no. But I went to Hawaii to get married recently and the couple sitting behind me and my husband had a son who was one month younger than our daughter and they kept each other entertained the whole trip. The couple was extremely nice and so when we got off the flight we exchanged phone numbers. They ended up staying in the same hotel as us just one floor directly above us. So I would give it out, but it has to be under the right circumstances.

Well, it all depends on the situations. If they are my classmates, i would probably give my contact number to them even we just meet once or twice. But if i meet the person from somewhere else like shopping center or friend of my friend, i don't think i will give them my phone number.

No, i don't think that it is true. We cant judge a person in one single meeting. What if the person to whom you have given the number calls one day and abuses you?? But if the meeting is an official one and the person whom you have met needs your number for further deals, then its okay. How can you just give your number to a stranger. It will be somewhat similar to giving an add or making a poster like "call me, phone no: **********." If its reasonable then its okkay
