Internet dating when to ask to meet
You’re so pretty, I’m surprised someone hasn’t taken you off the market!
(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.
Consider handing them a piece of paper with your number before you get off the train. Consider volunteering for a cause you care about, and see who you meet.
At the very least, you'll make friends (with more potentially cute buddies).
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?
Should I say, “Well, I don’t hook up right away, so most guys get bored with me, and that’s why I’m single!
” The world already gives single girls the side-eye; there really is no need to bring up singledom on dates.
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.
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.
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.
Meaning: Instead of asking “What do you do for fun? ” and from there, I’ll get to learn what the person enjoys doing in their free time.
