One of the precarious things about finding love online is having to reveal personal information to a potential suitor. We never do really know for sure if this person is actually a nice guy or a complete psychopath until after the date has ended and we either sing emphatically when his name pops up on our cell phones or pray that he never uses our number again.
Last summer I went out with a guy I had mixed feelings about from the get-go. Something about him was off and it took weeks of playing nice until I was forced to be brutally honest. One day I told him I simply wasn’t interested in going out again. I felt awful. The never ending calls and text messages that followed our date were bordering on harassment and I cursed myself for giving out my cell number. Bless his heart, the calls eventually stopped, but what if they didn’t?
I write today with happy news for anyone who finds themselves in the dating trenches. If you are worried about mobile privacy by giving out your phone number to perfect strangers, then MyAKA is just the service you may be looking for. Created with the intention of protecting your identity (you realize cell phone numbers can be Googled for owner information, right?), users will receive a second number in their local area code which allows two mobile numbers to be shared on the same phone. This assigned number is not linked to user information in any way and full voice and text message support is available within the U.S. and Canada. You can also easily block/unblock numbers and put up a “Do Not Disturb” feature which sends calls to voicemail and stores text messages until phone is enabled.
In addition to all of these awesome features, there are no apps, downloads, or internet–all features are controlled via text message. Interested in trying this out? Check out their free 7-day trial with no payment information required.
A 7 Day FREE Trial?! What’s the catch? None. With this special offer for My Pixie Blog readers you can enjoy seven worry-free days of flirting with MyAKA, without even entering your credit card! And when you decide to keep the service, you can upgrade your number in two easy steps at the MyAKA site. It’s as simple as that to date safely this fall. Sign up today for a fun second mobile number with no strings attached.
