TMI Tuesday: September 13, 2011

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?

1 - When is the last time you participated in an outdoor activity? What was it? If they say watch TV, watch sports...or a bunch of non-activity I'm outta there. I'm too hyper to sit still.

2 - Where do you live? And then I'd ask questions to get them to elaborate on their living situation.

3 - Do you love sex?

2. Have you ever participated in speed dating? Did you get a regular date/second date out of it?

Never, but I think it sounds fun. A local chain restaurant hosts speed dating every now and again.

3. Do you participate in online dating? How many dates have you had as a result of online dating sites/matches?

I have in the past. It was fruitful: 8 or 9 first dates, many second and third dates. I met some very nice men. Some were a little too into me. Some really did just want to have sex; they should have hired a hooker. One was completely psychotic, and became a rude stalker when I expressed that he wasn't my type of human so I had to lay low for many months and return with a different profile. I found a lot of the men to be insincere even if not looking for anything romantic. That got old and boring. It was all kind of juvenile. I quit doing the online thing after about a year of being on and off of it.

4. You are attracted to:
a. Who people are?
Most definitely this. I care about your character, your personality, etc.

b. What people have?
Well if you have a 72 foot yacht, I care very much because I love to go sailing.

c. What they can do?
If you can tie a cherry stem with your tongue I am confident that you have the proper skills to make ours a happy and lasting relationship. :-)

5. What "little red flag" will cause you to end a date or immediately decide this person isn't for you?

I read body language. If you are overly tense (not shy and nervous) or curt, you are wound way too tight for me. I'm gone. If we are dining and you are rude to any of the restaurant personnel, you're a meany and I'm not spending time with you. I often have to go with my gut feeling. I'm usually right when I do. The few times that I haven't paid attention to the intuition or gut feeling I've suffered.

6. What do you feel you need to sacrifice or have sacrificed to be a part of a relationship?

France helped put this into perspective for me. Originally, I would have said "I will sacrifice nothing" knowing that in relationships as in life there are sacrifices to be made. France makes the distinction between sacrifice and compromise. I will most definitely compromise when needed.

7. If you cooked for your date, what would you cook?

Oh this is tough. Probably a vegetable & pasta dish with olive oil and basil served with baked salmon. If he's a die-hard meat eater I could make curry baked pork chops with sauteed veggies and brown rice with raisins. I am a good and creative cook. I do a lot to simple foods with herbs and spices that make it all taste delicious.

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

If I'm just not into you a "good night, thank you for the evening" and I would extend my hand to shake yours. It's my nice way of getting across to you "I'm not interested in a second date." If we are having a blast, then there has already been a lot of touching because I'm the touchy-feely type. I would give a gentle kiss on the cheek. If you moved your face so that your lips met mine, I'm okay with that, which would be "a".

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?

I am sexy, smart, funny, engaging, caring, positive and passionate.


For shits&giggles I took the crazy quiz "Are you a hot date?".

You're So Hot!
You know all the right moves - you make eye contact, you flirt just enough
to keep them interested and you trust your intuition.
You're a great date - fun, flirty and definitely hot.
