Game of Love pt 2
When is it okay to ask a potential partner certain questions?
Would it be odd to ask a man very early on if he's a woman beater for example?
When is it okay to lie to a potential partner?
Is it ever okay?
What are the rules on that?..
Pretty sure no man will say yes to being a woman beater - but I could be wrong.
Men and women do appear very different in the types of things they need to know about a potential partner
I remember on a poll on this site - when I asked about deal breakers someone answered.. I have no deal breakers.. I'm grateful for whatever I get!!..which was quite cute and funny.. I have a feeling it may have been a man! ( feel free to let me know).. which is heartening in that maybe men are more relaxed and less critical towards potential partners. I would like to hear from you men about the kinds of things you look out for - or questions you need answering before getting too involved..
Imagine this conversation over dinner if you will...
Man - Have you always struggled with your weight?
Woman - Why - do you think I'm fat?
Man - Well.. you are fat.. no need to pretend!
Woman - True.. true.. hmmmm - you do realise I'm expecting you to pay for dinner
Man - I know you expect it
Woman - Will you?
Man - This time yes.. but if we don't go back to your place after I wont be paying again!
Woman - You realise they have a name for that
Man - eh.. yes.. dating?
Woman - I can't take you back until I know a few things
Man - What do you need to know?
Woman - I have a list
Man - Take it our - read it - right through.. I'll answer what I can
Woman - OK.
(man puts down fork and looks intently into woman's eyes)
Woman - Do you have a criminal record?
Do you have a legitimate job?
How much do you earn?
Are you an adventurous lover?
Have you ever been with a man?
in fact.. I need your full sexual history please!
Any ailments or long term illnesses?
Have you ever hit a woman?
Do you have children?
Are you an involved parent?
Are you married?
Do you live alone?
Have you ever been in prison?
If so what for!
Can you cook - drive - clean - do DIY?
Finally - would you describe yourself as an honest person?
Man - Wow - that's some list..
Woman - I haven't finished...there's more on the back!
Man - eh...no thanks... that's enough for now...tell me ...do I need to answer all these questions before we can go back to yours?
Woman - I need to know
Man - Well... there are things I need to know before I answer
Woman - Ok - like what?
Man - I need to know if we're sexually compatible
Woman.. Oh for crying our loud!!!
