Any guy who’s ever given the wrong woman his number has thought about getting a disposable cell phone. Ditch the phone when you ditch her, and you’ll never have to deal with those annoying booty calls or text messages again. It’ll be over, and she won’t have a way to contact you. But are disposable phones really the way to go?
Disposable Phones are Practical
It’s easy to see the pros of this situation. Disposable phones are cheap. You can nab one, fill it up with the numbers of one night stands and booty calls you met at the bar, and then drop it in the trash when you’re done with them all. These phones also have a relatively cheap plan, because you prepay for minutes and texts. You don’t have to get a data plan, and you don’t have to use up your real phone plan chatting up a bunch of women you’re never going to speak to again. The pros are plentiful. However, for the average man the cons are not to be ignored.
It’s Just Not Cool
Of course, disposable phones are like a siren shrieking that you’re a player. Pull out a cheap little cell, and every woman you talk to is going to know that you’re not serious about her. Needing to have a disposable phone sends a very specific message about exactly how much you hook up and the kind of women that you hook up with: desperate girls who aren’t going to take no for an answer. The alternative explanation is that you can’t even be bothered to end it with someone yourself, and you just throw them away. Not a good look for most guys. The only way to get around that would be to convince her that it really is your real phone, but… that’s not cool either. Smartphone’s are the current trend, and if you’re running around with a cheap disposable you’re not going to impress anyone.
If you think that you can bounce back from having a stupid cell phone, you’ve got more confidence than the average man should. Women are hyper tuned into accessories. The first thing they notice about a man is his shoes, and they’re more turned on by a nice watch than a nice smile. Setting yourself back is a game that only the experienced pickup artists can play. If you’re a veteran looking to make the game a little more interesting, than by all means whip out the phone.
Unless you’re a very great hookup artist, steer clear of the disposable cells. Get a number blocking app before you stoop too low. A great phone is a boon to hooking up with women, and it doesn’t send the same cheesy, overly confident signals that a disposable does. Life would be easier if you could use a disposable, but some things in life aren’t meant to be easy. Skip the disposable unless you like playing the hookup game on hard mode.
