As a follow-up to my previous blog I thought I'd focus on the work of Nicolas Gueguen, a French Psychologist who has done numerous studies on getting a woman's phone number. In each of the experiments the actor said the following:

‘‘Hello. My name’s Antoine. I just want to say that I think you’re really pretty. I have to go to work this afternoon but I wonder if you would give me your phone number. I’ll phone you later and we can have a drink together someplace.’’

Below is a synopsis of his findings:

1.  The chances of getting a woman's phone number while she is on her period is only 7.8% but when off her period and in her most fertile stage it jumps to 21.7%.

2.  A total of 52.2% of women gave their phone number to a man if they heard romantic song lyrics prior to the man approaching her.  Neutral song lyrics garnered 27.9%.

3.  If a man had a dog with him the woman gave her phone number 28.3% of the time.  Without a dog he got the number 9.2% of the time.

4.  If a woman's forearm was touched first, she gave her number 19.2% of the time.  Without touch it was 10% of the time.

5. A man dressed as a firefighter obtained a woman's phone number 21.7% of the time but dressed as a civilian he only got the number 8.3%.

6. Asking for directions from a woman prior to asking her to have a drink with him got a "yes" 15.8% of the time.  Asking a woman to have a drink with him without asking for directions first got a "yes" only 3.3% of the time.

In the following Gueguen studies, I don't have the actual numbers since it would cost to download it and is not available in my university library. Information was gotten from abstracts.

7. When approaching a woman for her phone number by either a flower shop, a cake shop, or a women's shoes shop, the flower shop was more likely to result in success.

8. Eye contact vs. glancing away was more likely to get a woman's phone number.

9.  Complimenting a woman prior to asking her phone number got significantly greater compliances than just asking directly.

10.  Women were more likely to give their phone number on sunny days compared to cloudy days.

11. Women were 3 times more likely to give their number to an unknown man if they overheard him tell a joke than if no joke was heard.

12.  When women perceive a man with a higher financial income, she is more likely to give out her phone number.

13.  When women were exposed to an "ambient fragrance" (e.g., baked goods), women were 2/3 more likely to give out their phone number than with no fragrance effect.
