I tend to delete numbers from my phone of ex's, girls that i dated and it went no where, and other people i have no use for. I know if I don't I might end up drunk dialing them one lonely night. Ive noticed that women however do not. I have gotten several random phone calls and texts lately from females i haven't seen or heard from in months if not years.

So do you delete numbers or keep them for a rainy day?

delete them...cause if you are single it saves you from a bad drunk dial and if you are with someone it saves you from explaining why these girls are still in your phone

but i can almost guarantee the girls still have the number. this way they can tell if they really want to answer it or not.

I just had this fight with the g/f not two days ago.

My stance on it was that I have a TON of number in my phone, and most of them were met in some sort of business environment, so Tiffany, while being a part time escort, is also an underwriter at GMAC who might be a good chick for me to have her number, etc. My intentions are honestly that, but she wants to take the stance of "If she's cute and she's not me, she shouldn't be in there". I'm trying to tell her to back the fuck off in the nicest way possible.

WHen it comes to her phone? She has the number of at LEAST 5 guys who are completely in love with her, which she will admit to, that text her all the time, that she tells them she has a boyfriend, who keep texting her, etc. She says she keeps their numbers so she knows which one is sending her the texts because there's no way for her to unlearn her number from their phones.

I just shake my head and laugh.

Next week's drama... How Myspace is not a true representation of my life, and how if one of my buddies sets my status to "Swinger", just because Myspace says it is doesn't mean I'm changing my sexual orientation.

i dont delete numbers. but there are a lot of multiple johns and mikes etc, so if i really dont want to answer a certain person when they call i put them under 'dont answer'. saves me a headache. there ya go.

I used to keep them in. My g/f FLIPPED out way back when a few of them called. Even when I deleted the name and just had a letter pertaining to the person she would ask= "WHO'S THAT????" I just gave up and deleted them all.

That shit annoys the fuck outta me. I love it when your out with a chick and shes got another conversation goin on with anothre guy. I dont have time for that shit. Girls love the double standard.

That sucks because girls will keep a number forever. To me, its like the 7's-10's always seem like they are looking for something better and thats why they keep numbers for so long.

I don't delete them, sometimes they'll get renamed if the girlfriend gets suspicious. My one ex is currently in my phone as the pizza place I used to order lunch from.

And texts always get audited before we hang out.

I have rarely deleted numbers, partially because it seems so final to do so and also because I don't always see the point. Is it really a pain to have to scroll through one more number, etc?

Now of course that means I've made a few bad drunken decisions in my day but it's normally me contacting people who also have my number. If they didn't and asked who the fuck I was, I probably would delete them on the spot to avoid humiliation.

If I was dating someone who had an abundance of ex-girlfriends phone numbers, I might find that a tad unsettling. It's situational of course, but I know its always a big fight-worthy topic.

Well have you ever drunk dialed an ex or a person you were currently seeing? Ive done that a few times. Not pretty the next day. I just dont get why its important to keep the numbers unless you need a backup plan, or a good fuck.

Okay, I'm a girl and if you're out of my life then you're out of my phone. It's not really about drunk dialing for me, it's more about making a clean break. I've never bought into the fairy tale line 'we can still be friends' because I don't believe that we can be friends.
So, relationship over, friendship ended ... as the song goes nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah hey hey hey goodbye

I'm not sure how I would feel about ex girlfriends' numbers being in my boyfriend's phone. When women used to call the apartment, my ex would tell me they were from his AA meeting and wanted to make sure he was going that night. Or they were coworkers that I didn't know. Of course, that was all bullshit. So as a result, I don't really know how quick I'd be to believe that Voss's Tumor's part-time escort was actually a business contact. No matter how secure I am with my relationship and with myself in general, there's always this little nagging voice in the back of my head that keeps repeating 'you trusted him and he fucked you over'.

okay, that's a little TMI

I certainly had a phase and I preferred to go the texting route. I guess it just seemed safer in my head. Part of the reason I don't delete like someone else mentioned, is also just incase they contact me so I know who they are. There's a guy I saw months ago who I hadn't spoken one word to since ending it, who left me what HAD to have been a drunken message just a few weeks ago. If I deleted his number, I never would have known who it was! Granted, I'm doing nothing with the knowledge but still. Go with it.

I have some numbers that I delete from time to time, mostly because I can't remember who they are. If I know who it is, I'll keep it.

On a related note, I have numbers of people in my phone that I've never even called or had a reason to call.

If your with someone and they need explanation from you, you're with the wrong person.
