Well, that is indeed an intriguing question! Should you save their number in your contacts right after you’ve started talking? My honest response is a resounding NO.
You might be wondering, why is that? The answer is simple: it’s to save you time and effort in case things don’t work out.
By refraining from saving their number, you avoid the hassle of searching for their information and then deleting it if the relationship doesn’t progress. Moreover, it serves as a protective measure against forming premature emotional attachments.
To be frank, I can confidently say that I’ve only saved a handful of contacts throughout my online dating experience. However, it’s important to note that this doesn’t mean I’ve only engaged in conversations with those individuals. They were the ones with whom I felt the deepest connections with. Somehow, they managed to earn a coveted spot in my contacts because I sensed the potential for something more significant to develop.
Now, here’s the thing. I won’t consider saving your number until my friends start referring to you by a name, not just “which one” or any other nickname. Until that point, you’re simply a stranger, like any other person on the street. So, why should I contemplate saving your number? After all, my contacts are reserved for those nearest and dearest to my heart. Until you’ve earned that place, you remain just another face in the crowd.
Some may perceive this approach as snobbish or stuck-up, but let me assure you, it’s far from that! Allow me to explain.
The modern dating scene has become a chaotic circus, a constant parade of disappointments that can crush even the tiniest glimmer of hope in finding someone truly deserving.
So, why would I want to put all my eggs in one uncertain basket? It’s all about exercising caution and protecting my emotions until I find someone truly worth investing in.
It’s truly astonishing how quickly people can flip their emotions around. One moment, everything seems fine and dandy, and the next, they vanish into thin air, leaving you utterly bewildered. The sheer inconsistency displayed by some individuals is mind-blowing, to say the least! It’s much easier to wait to see if a seed grows into a weed or a beautiful flower requires less effort than planting it and later having to remove it.
So, let me ask you this: Do you find yourself immediately saving the number of someone you’ve just started conversing with after exchanging digits? I’m genuinely curious to know your thoughts on the matter!
