My silly view is this:
With a female partner, I want her to feel so comfortable with me, that she would love to share that number, and then say. Let me show you all of my research and experience "Mr. Tegel".
At that point, no words comes from my mouth and my eyes glaze over.
For women that are selective, same rules apply and for that I would state, thank you for trusting me to be one of the select few to win the Golden Ticket.
But I figure I am wired differently then most guys.
