    If a girl wants to show interest in you, how forward is too forward?

    Scenario: Have the cell number of a guy I'm interested in. It was given to me by a mutual friend. Is it OK to make the first move with a text?

    If the guy knows you, go for it.

    If not, it's a bit awkward.

    This isn't the 1940s.

    If he knows you just call him. I had this longer answer but then I realized it made no sense. But the whole point to it was this: Just call him.

    nothing would be more flattering to me than having a woman make a move like this on me, girl friend. go for it.

    damn, i'm giddy just knowing you're thinking about using that number. 8)

    How well do you know this boy? You might have been given it from a mutual friend, but would it be out of the blue?
    Nothing would burst your bubble more than an inability for him to place a name with a face.

    Shockey has his phone on vibrate in anticipation.

    Go ahead and send it, just let me make sure my phone is turned on. :)

    And don't listen to Slappy, just txt a photo (wink, wink, nudge, nudge ... know what I mean, eh? "Candid photography" eh? Eh?)

    If the phone doesn't ring it's me.

    Oh you guys ...

    OK, a little more background. Two weeks ago, we hung out at the ballpark and had a few drinks. A bunch of us then went to the pub for something to eat before heading home.

    And this where I start to blush ... while the big joke was that we were going home together that night, I turned all shy and stuff and balked. But ... blush, blush, blush ... he gave me his leftover pizza to take home.

    Saw him last night and caught him watching in my general direction a few times.
