I think I come across to serious sometimes, so today I am going to lighten things up.
When I was young I was ordinarily outgoing and talked a lot. Except for when it came to boys I liked , I would become shy and not know what to say. My girlfriends had no advice for me other than “be yourself”. I realized I was on my own. I decided to make up my own questions so that I would always be prepared.
I came up with two that I kept over the years
“Can you do any tricks?”
What my friends said was a dumb question at the time has turned out to be a remarkable question in the long run. I have seen card trick (one guy could stack the deck and deal an ace at anytime), coin tricks, magic tricks, string tricks, one guy could pull a table cloth off the table and not displace anything, pet tricks and was told tricks that I can not go into here. I realized two important fact for me. 1. I like to be entertained and 2. You acquired amazing insight and information about men.
“If you were not good you and you were bad you who would you be? what would you be doing?”
This question was not only a date question it became just a very interesting question. (Ask this at a party sometime). People have given such interesting responses, including: thief (a top answer), arsonist (my answer), thug, con artist, hooker. But what has surpised me the most are the number of “hitman” answers. You just never know.
