Walking out of a club, many moons ago.
Eve: "You looked like you were having a good time talking to that girl."
Anthony: "Yeah! She seems really cool."
Eve: "Did you get her number?"
Anthony: "No. I don't usually ask women for their phone number."
Eve: "What? Why not?"
Anthony: "Instead I give them my business card, and I come up with a reason for them to write to me. Like, 'Email me if you want travel tips for Shanghai.' Or 'Email me about that stock portfolio strategy I mentioned.'"
Eve: "Does that ever actually work?"
Anthony: "Yeah, most of the time they'll email me."
Eve: "Really? Whenever a guy gives me his card, I immediately throw it into the trash as soon as I walk outside. If he doesn't have the guts to ask for my number, it's not going to work."
Anthony: "[sighing] Maybe this is why I never manage to date girls like you."
