TMI Tuesday - Dating


1. You’re on a speed date. You’ve got 7 minutes with the potential partner. You already know the person’s name. What are the first three questions you would ask?
What do you like to do on the weekends?
Do you like football and who is your favorite team?
Do you like asian girls?

2. Have you ever participated in speed dating? Did you get a regular date/second date out of it?
Sorta.  Let me explain.  A friend told me about a speed dating event at one of the bars on the military base.  I called and signed up.  The day before, a woman called me and said it was canceled because only 3 girls had signed up!  But they had 20 guys!  I told her they should just have it anyway.  She didn't share my sense of humor and told me "no" and that it was canceled.

3. Do you participate in online dating? How many dates have you had as a result of online dating sites/matches?
I haven't online dated in years.  I think I was last online in 2008.  I had quite a few dates, but none were very successful.  The guys I met usually fell into the category of being good looking, but dumb and dull in person or not looking like their picture at all (one guy used a picture from 10 years before).  

4. You are attracted to:
a. Who people are?
b. What people have?
c. What they can do?

I guess a mixture of each.  I want someone who is a genuinely good person, interesting personality, with a kind heart (a).  I want someone who has a stable life - a job, car, a place to live NOT with mommy and daddy (b).   And someone who has some skills/talent/hobbies to bring to the relationship (c).  If a guy can cook, he will always win me over!

5. What “little red flag” will cause you to end a date or immediately decide this person isn’t for you?
Talking way too much about his ex and/or talking about what an awful person his ex was.  I also hate guys who insist on telling me how they were the victim and were mistreated by their ex, while they were the perfect husband/boyfriend, but yet they stayed with her for 5 years.  Blah, blah, blah.  Lame.

6. What do you feel you need to sacrifice or have sacrificed to be a part of a relationship?
I think you need to compromise if you want a relationship to work.  But it has to be something you're willing to compromise on.  And it has to be a relationship worth compromising for.

7. If you cooked for your date, what would you cook?
First, I'd ask him if he was allergic to anything or if there was certain food that he definitely didn't like.  After I got those answers, I'd plan the menu.  In general, white boy are happy anytime you feed time steak and potatoes, so I usually go that route.  Otherwise, I like to go Italian and make lasagna.  

8. At the end of a first date, how would you kiss your date?
a. Press your lips against theirs
b. Gentle kiss on the cheek
c. Lots o’ tongue, like you’re on a tonsil exploration
d. I don’t kiss on the first date

It really depends on how the date went.  I would prefer the guy make the first move, so if he went for my cheek, I'd be fine with that.  If he went for my lips and it was an amazing date, I'd love that!   If I really like him and I know he's shy, I am willing to make the first move and I'd go for his lips!

Bonus:  You just put up a profile on a dating site. You must describe yourself in 10 words or less. What are your 10 words?
Oh gosh, do I really need to say it??  Asian Girl Hearts White Boys!  That pretty much says it all!  lol

    H - I can't believe they thought the girls wouldn't want to do it. I'm sure the guys would have been extra competitive too.

    MsKayotic - Thank you! Ex talk really annoys me, especially on a first date!
