So, my boyfriend and I hadn't seen each other all week and we got into the whole "What have you been up to, anything new?" conversation. Somehow, he mentioned a friend that he had online. We both know that we talk to people online because that's how we met and we're both fine with that. Anyway, he said that he has been talking to this girl for about a year online and that they had never talked on the phone. She had to go, so she ended up giving him her cell # should he ever want to call her. Being nice, he gave her his too. I told him that she took that as a sign of him being interested, but he said that they both knew it was just friends. I told him how girls are and that she probably mistook him giving his number as him showing interest. He disagreed but she called that night. When he answered she asked what he was doing and what not and he told her that he was with me but we were just hanging out. She said "Well, I'll just call you later." So they got off the phone and she called the next day and left a message. The message was something like "Hey Stud, just call me back when you get this and I'll gladly talk to you...talk to you later Stud." He didn't call her back but she did call again later that night when he was over my house. We'd been discussingit a lot and he handed me the phone to answer it to "calm my insecurities". I answered and said hello and she said hello. So I said "Hi.." Then, she hung up. I'm not really sure what that meant. Also, he was over for a few hours after the call, so if it was bad signal or something, she had enough time to call back. So, I pose these questions: Guys: Have you ever just wanted to friends with a girl but even little "hi's" and "what's up?" have led her to believe you meant more? Girls: Have you ever felt that if a guy gives you attention and/or his phone number it is flirting no matter what he says?
