He's again interested in meeting me, although he's still a little skeptical at my claims of masculinity.
Make phone contact only after you feel comfortable — but definitely before your first face-to-face meeting. Be suspicious of someone who won't call you or let you call him.
Don't give out a home phone number until you are sure this is someone you want to see again. Almost all home phone numbers, even some that are supposedly "unlisted," are easily traced to the address. "You can also use an anonymous phone service instead of your cell phone for your initial communications if it makes you feel more comfortable," Tracy says. "Disposable cell phones are also an option."
