In my opinion, this question just shows that he’s calculating how soon we’ll be hooking up, which is just tacky.If you’re someone who has trouble making small talk on dates, one of my tricks is to start with current things, and go from there.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? Do you often think about what happens to you and what you feel?
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?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.(aka, “Why are you single: The Remix)This is one of those backhanded compliments that really has no response. As a Plus-Size Princess, I often wonder if the guys asking me out have dated big girls before (not that it matters, but I do wonder), and I’ve learned that the answer is rarely helpful.When men say this to me, it makes me feel like something is wrong with me — especially because 99% of the men who use corny lines like this will not make any moves to take me off the market. If his last three girlfriends looked like Jennifer Lopez, I may feel insecure, but if his last three girlfriends looked like Rebel Wilson, I might wonder if he’s a chubby chaser.” The world already gives single girls the side-eye; there really is no need to bring up singledom on dates.You’re so pretty, I’m surprised someone hasn’t taken you off the market!On the flip side, when a guy asks me what kind of guys I like, I might feel uncomfortable, especially if he doesn’t fit my normal boyfriend mold.I don’t want to have to tell Kevin Hart that my last three boyfriends were NBA players. In the end, knowing a person’s “type” really doesn’t matter as long as they’re attracted to you. This question is a little different from “what kind of guys/girls do you like? In any case, I recommend you to enjoy the process of getting know the other person. Would you deal with extreme sports, for example, bungee jump? You can use your choice in the order you want, although it is advisable to leave the most personal for the end.
