Marian,

I think that it is a good topic. cloud

Somebody has got to keep these topics new and fresh, so your efforts are appreciated.

The person who said that some people babble and blab when they are a bit nervous, has got it right on. Also, some will clam up too...I think this applies equally for men and women. I have not had the experience of men not asking enough questions. I wouldn't like to be grilled though, it's like taking a true/false test.....one size fits all, is not a good way to get to know someone.

Thank you Jacqueline. I do think some people talk a lot when they are nervous.
This is why we have to give a person a second chance if we can.

Men ask questions; getting answers sometimes may be a problem. I'll try to get a lady to talk about herself, to start things off. What interests me is whether the conversation will go back and forth between us, or is she so absorbed in herself that she prattles on and on and on and on........?

Of course a man should ask questions. On a first date, I think he is wise to stick to the vanilla questions and listen to the answers. The more sensitive ones are maybe best for a later date. Or maybe I'm completely wrong and he should go for broke to get a better picture of his date.

Other men have mentioned this problem. It is good that you bring it up. Both sides of the equation need to reflect on how they use the time they have together.

It depends on the question you wish to ask.

I know some people leave the date without any information about the other.

I know this because I have gone out and not been asked any questions, which is what prompted this thread.

I also began this thread because of the idea of creating a relationship. ..or better stated.. a connection.

I have been learning that some men do not know how to do that.

So This thread is a reminder on the idea that there are steps a person, man or woman can take to enhance the "getting to know you process."

These are skills that can be learned and practiced. This is just a discussion on this process and this issue.

I am curious as to any questions you may have asked and what kind of topic the woman began to speak on that led her to keep talking. I am sincerely curious. If you can recall an instance, do share it.
