You can A) call him, B) text him or C) you can get super drunk, lose your phone &/or never make contact.
Let's imagine that "cute boy" went to a few other holiday parties & you may not be the only one he gave his number to. You want to stand out... don't you?!!
So what's the point?
Getting a phone call from a boy you gave your number to almost never happens. Don't let your next sexual conquest slip away & make yourself stand out from the texting crowd. Pick up the phone & ask the boy out for coffee. We all know what coffee really means!
Picking up the phone is so much classier & it doesn't require too much effort on your part. It's 2013 & the game is changing boys. Show some chivalry for Christ's sake it's Christmas!! Open a car door, offer to buy a cocktail & don't forget that saying, "Hi I am so&so, what's your name?" is a much better approach than... "I saw you on ________ ?".
