SUMOskinny magazine is the ultimate guide to college life. Part local, part national, and all college.
Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy, but here's my number, so call me maybe??
Since Carly Rae dropped that line last spring, guys and gals have been swapping numbers like cray. But what if you've taken the plunge of giving some cutie your digits and then they aren't what you expected? That's where Burner comes in.

Burner is an app available for iPhones that costs only $1.99 and gives you fake numbers to use on your real cell phone. CEO/founder of Burner's parent company, Ad Hoc Labs, claims it's for anoyone "who simply values their privacy." You enter your number into the app, receive a text with a code, then with the tap of a button Burner makes you an additional phone number. User Sara Yin from PCMag.com uses her non-primary number for craiglist so random people don't get her actual number.
And since people at bars are also random, I'm all for creating a number to use in social situations. So ladies and gents, fear not about taking chances because if anyone turns out to be a creeper you can just delete the number you gave them. But if the fates are in your favor, you can say "oh wait I got a new phone; here's my new number" to take your relationship the next level. What a great tech savvy dating world we live in.
