    Default Choose: facebook vs. text

    which is more personal?

    If a girl runs into you, chats you up, hints at where you can find her; then when you ask her what she'll be doing after she says she's busy and asks if you have a facebook what would you do?

    Should I try to get her phone number or just give her facebook info?

    Generally speaking I would always go with the Cell Phone #.

    For 3 Reasons:
    1. If one of the 2 parties decides that they are no longer interested they can just decide to not reply the first text. Both should be okay with that and understand the message, this would be a little bit more awkward on Facebook.

    2. If you also don't give her your lastname you stay much longer anonymous in some sort of way, which will let you keep your privacy up and protects you from stalkers.

    3. If you didn't see her profile you have more questions to ask and can not run into the "So where are you originally from?" - "Why don't you just look at my facebook page??"

    Some chicks feel more comfortable on facebook than on the phone.

    I've been in similar situations.
    When she asks you for facebook in person. While giving her your phone say - I don't really use facebook that much. How about we keep it simple and exchange numbers.
    "OR"
    Add on facebook. Start talking on Inbox Messaging only first 3-4 messages (don't go online and chat). Start delaying your replies from next 2-3 days. And then write
    "Sorry for the late reply. I don't use fb that often. But it would be easier to talk if we exchange numbers."
    (I've gotten a few numbers writing - Sorry for the late reply. I don't use fb that often. (and then continuing with the conversation))
    In reply usually they write - Yes it would be easier if we text. here's my number -

    I would definitely choose text or simply calling, because Facbook is not that good in terms of emoticons and system crashes. (personal opp.)

    Forget chatting on FB. Especially now that the recipient can see when you have seen their message. There are plug ins on firefox to eliminate that, but what's the point of going through all that.

    I rather text and respond when I want to respond.

    Get the number!!!! If she's willing to offer her FB details you can push for her number.

    If not, get the number through FB.
    Say that you're out using facebook on your phone and the Wi-Fi connection isn't that great but you still want to talk. Get her to message her number then take it from there

    this is not even close: text.

    50% of gaming is the language used, and 50% is the management of the Tension that is created. It's incredibly hard to mount solid tension though facebook unless you are operating in real time and can escalate in real time when it starts going well.

    both can work obviously, but i think most people will tell you that the more personal and instant the communication, the better. facebook is about halfway between text and email, its only that way because gaming on facebook is less creeping than email stalking (due to social acceptance probably).

    plus, if a girl is texting you, then she is investing a LOT more time and energy than sitting at a keyboard pounding out responses at 50 wpm.

    It's not that big a deal.

    If the girl is online on Facebook, and you have her number anyway, you can message her and ask her out (or whatever). Or texting or calling is good too.

    If you don't have a number, you should get her number first.

    I like wall posting potential Meetup plans, but I like my reputation to travel far and wide. You choose your own poison.

    Facebook is for pussies.
    There is only one F-close. Facebook close is lame. By the way, agree with costarica.

    Facebook is cool to build social proof. You talk with a girl irl or texting, but when she looks at your facebook, she'll think "ok, this guys interacts with loads of people, not just me".

    Currently I'm approaching on facebook. Yeah, it's lame, but I came off from a LTR, so I have to regain my balls so I can approach irl. At least 90% of your communication is all about body language, voice tone, etc. So it leaves you with about 10% of shit chat. You feelin' me mate?
