In the "old days", when you were interested in someone, you had to give them your phone number. If things didn't go well, you may have ended up letting a roommate answer the phone and desperately whispering, "I'm not home!" But these days it's a different story.

Today, when you first meet someone, it's a lot easier to keep your private information private. You can give out your email address, and if the person gets too overbearing it's easy enough to ignore their emails until they get the message.

But that leads to a new question - how long before you actually give someone your number? Or do you still give out your number right away? Have you ever had to block someone from calling you because they got a little too overzealous? Let us know what you think in the comments section!
