I can’t remember anyone asking for my phone number on the street, on a bus, or in a bar. Strangers hardly ever approach me with the purpose of telling me I’m hot but, even on the very rare occasions when they do, they never ask if they can call me. (They just stalk me for two blocks until I say that I’m definitely not interested in going for a drink right this second. OK, so that was one time.) Some women get stopped on the street all the time or have guys simply look at their photo before wanting to get in touch to plan a date. Am I less hot than these women, or do I just look far less approachable? Every now and again my self-confidence deserts me and these types of question pop into my head, but I have no idea why. Would I want to be constantly bothered by strangers? No. Do I have time to see anyone else at the moment? No. Is my track record of dating people I haven’t been friends with and/or chatted to on the internet first any good? No. So why on earth does it bother me that random guys in the street don’t ask for my phone number?
But you know what’s really odd about all this unnecessary worrying? I very rarely give out my phone number to people I have only just met as I have an aversion to making and receiving calls so, even if they were really hot, I’d say no anyway! I really have no idea how my brain works sometimes. Answers on a postcard please.
