10 Best Ways NOT to Give a Guy Your Digits

The phone number curve is very real. Some women have no problem rejecting a guy before he even says hello.

That "can I hit you up sometime" comment is inevitable. And you don't want to be rude, but giving him your number is just out of the question. So flip through the next few pages to see how to avoid the phone number exchange.

Phone number wave hi

Keep it short.

Maybe you're not willing to completely blow him off. If so, just stick to a "hi" or a wave. Most guys won't think it rude if you at least acknowledge them giving you attention.

Phone number neutral

Keep the conversation neutral.

Don't give any personal information besides maybe a first name—and that you can even make up. And if he starts getting more insistent in asking more about you or seems like he may ask for your phone number, pretend you see someone you were supposed to be meeting and dash off.

ask for his phone number cropped

Ask for his instead.

If you can't seem to leave the conversation before he goes in for the kill, just ask for his instead. That way, you can control your interaction with him from that point on.

 phone number boyfriend

Use the boyfriend excuse.

Telling a guy you have a boyfriend used to be a full proof way to not give out your phone number. But now some guys will claim that they "just want to be friends." This is when you reiterate your being in a relationship and politely tell him that your boyfriend (real or not) is the only friend you need.

phone number stranger

Try the stranger excuse.

I know your parents told you no to talk to strangers when you were younger but that rule didn't just expire the day you turned 18. Tell him you're not comfortable giving out your personal number to someone you just met.

Tell him you're busy.

Maybe you have a long list of meetings or events for the next few weeks. Tell him you just don't have time to entertain the idea of starting something new with someone.

phone number dead phone

Tell him your phone's dead.

This is a tricky one because some men will stop their pursuit here, seeing that you aren't interested in giving them your phone number, dead or not. But others will counter by pulling out their fully-charged phone and telling you that you can just put you phone number in theirs. That's when you either decline completely or...

  wrong phone number

Give him the wrong number.

Okay, he swindles you into doing exactly what you've been trying not to do: give him your phone number. No worries, just give him to wrong one. You can even kill two birds with one stone by giving him a friend's number who you want to pull a prank on. And if he tries to call you to check if it's the wrong number, refer back to the dead phone excuse.

phone number unicorn

Come up with the most outlandish lie. 

Boyfriends, safety, and dead phones don't seem to work on a guy? Come up with the craziest lie you can think of—something so ridiculous that it's obvious that you're not giving him you phone number. Like a unicorn ran up you phone bill and you have no more minutes for the rest of the year. Hopefully he gets the hint.

Tell him your just not interested.

Sometimes the truth is really the best excuse of them all. He'll appreciate you honesty and will probably respect you a lot more for being honest with him.

City Girls Get "Careless" In New Music Video

In honor of the one-year anniversary of their debut project Period, City Girls has dropped a music video for their song "Careless."

The video stars the rap duo, Yung Miami and J.T., the latter who is currently serving a two-year sentence in Tallahassee. The visual directed by Gabriel "Video God" Hart, features the two rap divas sporting their iced out Quality Control chains rapping in the streets of what appears to be Miami. Both Yung Miami and J.T. are donning the same outfits, distressed jean shorts-underwear, a cropped Miami jersey with a white turtleneck underneath and the classic Timberland boots.

City Girls are showing exactly what they're made of as they rap about "living life so careless," and "h**s [being] so mad it's evident" with an entourage of women behind them. The short clip is full of fun-filled energy as the hot rappers bounce from location to location. Whether they're in a hotel room sipping on some Hennessy, in a store copping a couple of things, they still manage to get their bars off.

The visual is a good representation of what fans can expect from the rap duo, even more so if they see them in concert. Most recently Yung Miami performed the girls' big hit, "Act Up" at Rolling Loud with the help of Lil' Yachty, their co-collaborator on the song. Next up for Yung Miami is the Hot 97 Summer Jam on June 2 at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.

Make sure to check out their music video above and stream Period in celebration of its one-year anniversary.

Blac Chyna Named As Suspect In Assault Against Hair Stylist

Well, this isn't the best way to celebrate your birthday.

Blac Chyna has reportedly got in trouble with the law again after a confrontation with her hair stylist. TMZ reports the Chyna and the employee who hasn't been unidentified, were at Chyna's home in San Fernando Valley, Calif. when they got into an argument over payment.

The police report alleges after the hair stylist attempted to collect her check from Chyna, the 31-year-old pulled out a knife. The hair dressed left and reportedly threw soda cans at Chyna's car. A source shared with the outlet that Chyna didn't have a weapon on her person but there were cans thrown at her car.

Because Chyna's six-year-old son King was present, there's a chance the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services will get involved for a possible welfare check.

Chyna hasn't addressed the incident but will more than likely still have a nice birthday.

Queen Naija Responds To Backlash For Going Public About Plastic Surgery

Queen Najia's decision to be blunt about her plastic surgery was met with backlash when she was accused of normalizing the procedure for young women.

The singer-songwriter who is known for her bold personality and power vocals shared the video titled, "Revealing My New Body | One Week Post Op Tummy Tuck + BBL (Brazillian Buttlift)" on YouTube Friday (May 10). In a previous video, Naija vlogged her plans to get a tummy tuck while heading to the Billboard Music Awards where she was nominated for Top R&B Female Artist.

The singer previously went under the knife after the birth of her first child in 2017, leading to a case of bad fibrosis. "I'm really really happy about the results," she said. "I basically got a tummy tuck and I got my hernia repaired around my belly navel, it would puff out because of my loose skin. I had really really bad fibrosis from the smart lipo I got two years ago."

In her recap video, the singer seemed to be visibly happy with the results and additional unplanned surgery for the Brazilian Buttlift. "I'm just really really happy. I feel more confident with my body and being a mom with two kids and having two c-sections, and all the stuff going on with myself, I'm really happy," she said Friday. "I will not be getting any more surgery. I won't turn into one of those girls who gets lip fat added and all this stuff. I'm not touching my face. As yall know I got eye fillers and I'm never doing that again."

But her joy was quickly met with criticism after The Shade Room picked up a portion of the video on their Instagram page. Naija responded in jest. "Now if I would have kept it a secret, like a lot of other women who’ve had surgery.. everyone would have saying “Liar, did you get surgery, why you hiding it?” she said.  Lol, I tell the truth & it’s still an issue. Hilarious. Imma take my new booty and hide in a ditch."

#QueenNaija stepped into #TheShadeRoom to say she’s keeping it real about her surgery, period. 👀👀 (SWIPE)

A post shared by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom) on May 10, 2019 at 7:39pm PDT

The "Medicine" singer has been open with her journey to building her self-esteem and has shared why she decided to try surgery. "I do love myself but at the same time, you have to make your self happy," she said in 2017. "You don't have to look in the mirror and see what I see. At the end of the say, I'm the one who has to put up with my self-esteem. I tried to diet and workout but I didn't see any results in my stomach area [because of c-section]."

The topic of surgical enhancement with women of color has been a controversial topic, with many women dying for trying under the table procedures. Standards of beauty have continuously changed with social media and influencers holding relevance over the youth but the singer hasn't promoted the option to go under the knife to her fans.
