An act of kindness with an aim to get something in return. For example a telephone number, or perhaps for a favour, or to gain extra contact means with someone, possibly for romantic reasons.

May be seen as sneaky or sly by some under the context of romantic involvement, but is used often to get to know people better for this purpose - A little white lie to save possible rejection, also known as playing it safe.
