Re: Internet phone number
I think that the one mistake that a lot of guys make is asking for the number. What I do (and I have about an 80% success rate with this) is on about the fifth message just give a short response to whatever her previous message was and then say, "But messaging back and forth on this site isn't a whole lot of fun. :P You should give me your phone number.
The point is never ask for the number whether online or offline. Always rephrase it as if you know she wants to give you her number and you're just letting her know that you want it to.

You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to church, when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth." - Morpheus
