2. You may have had one glass of wine too many. You start to think this is a good idea.

3. Once you finally get a hold and convince him to talk, you forgot what you want to talk about.

You might not have considered that he would actually answer the phone and now you find yourself at a loss of things you actually want to talk about - but you can't hang up now.

4. When he asks how many other people you have called before.

It's the wine talking now, and you realize it might be slightly offensive that he wasn't the first person you thought to call, then you start to realize you might regret this conversation (along with the other ones) in the morning.
