Is it weird to ask for a number via facebook?

I feel ridiculous asking this.

Alright there's a girl I know, but don't see her very often, and I want to get her number. Since I don't see her often it will likely be awhile before I can get it from her in person. Is it weird to PM her on facebook to exchange numbers?

I have a friend who's gotten a couple numbers via facebook and its worked out well for him, but then I have a few other friends who say thats weird and personally I think its weird too. But the end of the semester is approaching so time is running out. And meanwhile I'm only very recently single after 3 years of captivity, so I'm not sure how facebook factors into this. What do you guys think?

If you approach it casually, with considerable means of asking for it, it isn't that weird.

I've exchanged cell numbers with numerous people over Facebook.

Just add in the "Sorry if this seems weird or out of line, I just rarely see you and I assumed this would be the easiest way to contact you and ask for your number and surprise buttsecks".

as far as getting numbers in person I usually subscribe to the "who gives a crap, might as well, worst she can do is say no" school of thought. its quite liberating. but I don't want to scare off a girl who might give me her number in person, but would think facebook is weird. see the predicament?

BTW, thats a great line kjp!

I voted that it is weird, but if you can't get it any other way go for it.
Like some one else said though, be casual about it. Almost like an after thought to what you were really messaging her about.

It is not a big deal unless you make it one. The worse thing she can do is say "No" and never talk to you again. Oh, well. If she does, there was never any hope with her anyway.

thats true. and its not like I see her all the time, so awkwardness would be minimal.

I'm 90% sure she is. I tend to be pretty oblivious about this stuff, but I'm pretty sure with this one. I don't know her really well, but she's been at the last few parties I've hosted (she's friends with my buddy's girlfriend) and we've seemed to connect, but no digits were exchanged for various legitimate reasons (such as me not being single). The last time she was over, her and her friends stayed really late and were the last ones to leave at like 3:45am, and it was kinda awkward because she seemed kinda hesitant to leave and she could probably tell I was hesitant to let her go, but I wasn't about to cheat on my girlfriend. A few days later I saw her on campus between classes and when I said hi she gave me the most sultry look, I spent the next hour trying to figure out if I had imagined it.

Oh yeah, my roommate who makes a habit of facebook digit-getting actually used facebook to get in touch with this girl's really good friend, who I also know, and they've hung out a few times. Good sign? Maybe the next time she's over watching a movie with him in the living room I'll take a shower and then throw a washcloth around my waist and go in the kitchen for a snack. Then she'll report back to her friends about how jacked and tan I am

Anyway I just wasn't sure how common this was, I didn't want to be the only person to do it and have it seem stalker-ish. I'll probably do the deed tomorrow.

This is a pretty good idea right here, I say you go with this option.

Seriously though, it's not weird at all if you already know the girl and have hung with her. That'd be completely different if, say, she were just some random girl you saw on there. I say ask if she wants to hang sometime, do whatever, and ask for her number in that way.

It only takes a washcloth to cover your junk? Since you are that small I would suggest not doing that... Word travels about things; specially small things.

I don't think he will come off as a stalker since he already knows the girl.. It would come off as that if I asked for her number though.
Dude, I wouldn't waste your time trying to figure out if she has interest or not. Just go for it, if she doesn't like you; make her like you In the secksy way of course.

Knowing if she likes you or not doesn't change that fact that she does or doesn't. You should always just assume that everyone, even guys, would take you to your car and have steamy, animal sex. Everyone is interested. That way, you don't pass up an opportunity setting there wondering if she is or isn't. You find out. I have done it before, and I will never do it again.
