Truth About Phone Numbers
"I'm at the stage now where I can get girls' phone numbers. Now if I could only get them to return my calls or respond to my texts...."
And then I have to tell them the truth.
A phone number is a punctuation mark. Nothing more. Sometimes it's a question mark. Sometimes it's an ellipse...
But most of the time, it's a PERIOD.
That's it. That's all you get. Game over.
My point is.... if you think getting a girl's phone number is some kind of special 'result' or achievement, then you likely haven't declared your full intention.
You are not solidly on one of the two paths.
So be clear of what it is you're looking for and dedicate yourself to one of the two empowering paths. I invite you to either choose a path seeking your ideal long-term lover. Or choose a path seeking mutually satisfying short-term erotic encounters.
Sure, you'll exchange numbers sometimes, but just don't confuse getting the phone number as some sort of 'stage' or 'process' that you have to get good at before you give yourself permission go for what you really want.
The number is just an invitation to use technology to continue your connection. Never see it as an end in itself.
I'll tell you the equivalent for a bright, beautiful, high self-esteem woman on a path to connect and share commitment with her life partner. It's this...
Getting a marriage proposal from anyone who is not destined to be the man in this role. The proposal is just a period. It is not to be mistaken as some sort of 'stage' indicating her development. It's not indicative of anything because it is not the realization of the intention she's set.
Always remember your path. Visualize it. Step into it. Feel it. Intensely, vividly imagine the emotions you would have if it all were true right now.
And don't get sidetracked glorifying anything that is not the full realization of your intention.
