If you obtained his number through a friend or whatever, you haven’t been invited. Usually, it’s flattering enough that they won’t be horrible about it, so don’t worry too much. Your approach: ‘Hi, you might remember me from ___, it’s ___. I got your number from ___. I hope you don’t mind. ’ If he happens to turn you down, be grateful that he can’t see your expression through the phone lines.

It is from this persistence of attention in the face of complete and utter failure that I have drawn the conclusion that all men are essentially romantics. Romance is drama, action. Take a man out and what does he want to see? Action flicks. He doesn’t want to see romances. Romance is soft and boring and not nearly as interesting as blood and guts and cannibalistic aliens. However, when it comes to actual, real life contact with females they want an extra element of drama. When love is involved they don’t want it to be easy, they want that bit of excitement, much the same as at the cinema when they want to see exploding brains instead of kissing for that added zing.
