Should I or Shouldn't

Anonymous

There's this guy who I work with. I rarely see him, but his been asking for my number twice. The second time he ask I just smiled at him and told him I didn't and so then our manager pass by and told him he was needed at some other department, and after that I didn't see him. I know I'm making a big deal about not giving him my number, but when if I do he will then would want to hang out with me and I really don't have time to do that. I'm a full-time student in college and I work part-time, and I really don't want to be telling him that I won't be able to hang out with him. Should I just give him my number/

Do you like him?

Only give him your number if you are actually interested in him and you know he is a good guy.

You don't need your life complicated, but at the same time being busy shouldn't stop you from meeting someone great!

Give him your number...

But be upfront about your needs, wants, schedule and how much you can offer him. If you don't have any time for a boyfriend and you don't really want a relationship then be sure to tell him. There is nothing wrong with meeting someone new, making a friend or just seeing someone casually as long as both people are on the same wavelength.

If you are not into it, don't give it!

For the sounds of it, you don't seem too interested in this guy. I would just be upfront with him and tell him you don't have time and you are not interested right now. I know it's an uncomfortable situation to deal with but better be honest. Giving him your number will only give him ideals and will make things more complicated for you in the long run.

Don't do it.

If you're only doing it to keep him from harassing you, DON'T. He shouldn't be doing that anyway. Giving him your number is your choice, not his right. Tell him firmly one more time, no and if not, see if you can complain to somebody.

agree with everyone

don't give him your number if you don't want him to have it, simple. Guys can be annoyingly persistent, even if you tell them you're not interested, but trust me they'll give up eventually if you don't give them anything to play off of.

However if you do like him but don't want to give him your number because you're too busy, then I agree with alexjc, and let him know thats why you haven't offered it before. This way you guys can still be friends/talk at work, and maybe in the future when you're not so busy something can happen, and it won't hurt his ego either.

I agree!

Exactly. I agree with everyone else. I wouldn't bother giving him your number, especially if you aren't really feeling the situation. You can always be upfront with the reason, too.

No

I would advise giving your number but only if you are interested however this is a guy you work with. I strongly advise keeping work and private life separate. If something happens it could effect your worklife and that is never good. Good luck!
