    bait and switch

    1. It's an empty promise. It's called bait and switch.

    What is "bait and switch"? Is it like breaking your promise after you get what you want?

    2. When you ask a girl for her phone number she is thinking "Do I really want this guy calling my house?" Basically, she decides how much she likes you.

    Is it right the underlined part? I think it should be "she decides it according to how much she like you". Am I right?

    Thanks. :)

    I didn't know 1), but I guess you're right.
    2) looks fine to me. She has to decide how much she likes you before considering giving you her phone #. There are 2 (linked) decisions here: i) how much she likes you and ii) will she give you her phone #.
