The cost is less than a few drinks in a bar per month. No woman could possibly be that cheap, as to utilize this as an easy solution could they? in the past 7 months for medical bills since my knee injury and there's no sign of those costs letting up plus I may need surgery, I really don't have an extra . I haven't worked during that time (except from home since I'm on crutches) so yeah, we're not all as blessed as you to have extra money for several cell phones for internet dates.As I said I've been lucky enough to have chosen polite, respectful men who didn't care one way or the other about my calling from blocked numbers and the few I've given my number too so far have all been fantastic-no problems.I'm not interested in talking to someone for hours a day endlessly, which is what some guys want to do believe it or not.If someone wants to meet they will set a time and a place, if they don't they will want to talk about this pretend meeting from now til infinity.There's a fine line there, one side is fine, the other is trouble down the road.
I mean it speaks to their issues, adds a degree of safety at a minimum cost.
Lately, with online dating, when it came to the phone call and meeting....I would ask for her # to arrange a meeting, she'd always say, "Give me your phone # and I'll call you." And then she would block it, and it would come in as "private".
One said she won't even give out her # until they've met first meet.
I've never had any man care about me calling from a blocked number. Perhaps it's the optomist in me, who keeps thinking, the person for me is right around the corner.
Sometimes it takes a few dates before the crazy comes out so again it's a matter of deciding whether or not to give the person your number. Even given that though, unless someone was bat-sh1t crazy, I wouldn't need to worry.
