We’re wired so that once we start to develop an emotional attachment this is hard to break away from. Why: Different vacation preferences or amounts of vacation time can be a major source of ongoing incompatibility. Why: This question helps establish if your date has a positive or negative attitude? Why: Helps you find out the person's preferences and also helps you establish if the person has any free time or if they're a workaholic.
However, to be fair, I have met some wonderful guys online and wasn’t completely creeped out by them. We have been slowly removing the need for face to face interaction in almost every aspect of our lives, to the point that we don’t need it. I just included this because the answer is hell yes! If you could lock up one person in a mental institution, who would it be? If you could project yourself into the past, were would you go? So whether you are hanging out in bed, out to dinner or on a road trip, have some fun with these random questions. What is one thing you always wanted as a kid, but never got? If you were in a witness protection program, what would be your alias? What is the nicest thing someone else has done for you? If you could bring someone famous back from the grave, who would you choose? The examples below are intended to stimulate your own ideas rather than as rules. Why: Is the person about to make any major life changes e.g., leave their 0K/year job to go back to school? Do they see it as a job, a vocation, or are they primarily motivated by climbing the career ladder? Key goals of a first date are to (a) see if you have a connection, and (b) find out if you and your date have any major areas of incompatibility. Why: Does the person have strong feelings or are they more easygoing and with milder feelings. We were taking a 4 hour drive and so I just grabbed the box of cards that comes in it and left the rest of the game home. What one toy would you like to throw repeatedly at a brick wall? We found that the questions on the cards not only helped us pass the time on the long drive, but we had a lot of fun with them! Why: This shows you're considerate of other people's comfort. Why: If they still live with their Mom or they live with 10 roommates, this tells you something about how they like to live. Why: Are they very involved with their family of origin?
