Some of you may be thinking that this question means the guy is trying to plan a future date for us. There is no faster way to make me feel like I’m failing at life than to ask me why I’m single.I really wish you were right, but that’s what makes this question extra annoying: The same guys who ask me what I to do for fun will turn around in two weeks, and ask me what I would like to do for our first date, even though I’ve given them a list of things I do for fun. I mean, what is the right answer to a question like this?There are several reasons why you’d want to go “over-the-top” with your description: !And let me tell you: they’re turned off when they smell you’re wearing “Desperate Dude cologne”, which is when you’re WAY too serious throughout your dating profile.I was having brunch with some girlfriends the other day, and we got on the subject of first dates. It’s a generic question that breeds generic answers, and doesn’t really give you additional insight into who I am.While we all had different experiences, there was one thing we all agreed on: There are a few questions we are absolutely of hearing from guys on a first date. Asking me what I “do for fun” kind of makes me feel like I’m on an interview, not a date.
You’re so pretty, I’m surprised someone hasn’t taken you off the market!
only to find that it was all for WAY less than expected! But let’s face it: sure, it SUCKS, but where are you supposed to find the freaking time for writing dating profiles that attract women?
Hell, for spending hours on looking for samples of dating profiles and writing a profile that attracts YOUR type of woman?
For me, the answer is always the same: “I like all types of guys.” I mean, if I’m on a date with you, it’s because I’m open to dating you, no matter what you look like. So, are you trying to make me to cry on our first date?
This is information you’ll get eventually, but maybe we can keep it light and positive on the first few dates, please? Seriously, why does a man need to know if I live alone?
