The best and most insightful interviews are those where the interviewer asks a question, listens attentively to the answer, and then asks follow-up questions based on the particular response. Be ready to throw out your "list of questions" if the conversation leads in an entirely different direction. A perfectly great interview/date can be ruined by lack of listening and simply following a "list of questions".

Right, Ed. If it sounds rehearsed, too contrived, or too much like an interview, the lady is likely to feel uncomfortable, and chances for a 2d date are doomed.

The old Beatles song (originally Buck Owens) sums it up: "Act Naturally."

Being new to this, I'm almost reluctant to "jump in," but......I struggle with making conversations myself. This only seems to be an issue with my personal life - work setting is so much easier. I'm sure that you were not intending to generalize women as non-thinkers. I'm reading the threads to gain insight and advice - hope it works for us both!

Three topics that will always guarentee an interesting conversation:



1. Zombie apocalypse.



2. Nuclear Holocaust.



3. The weather.



And I am seriously not kidding about the first 2, you can discuss the application of Catholic theology to the first two.



I'd love for a man to discuss zombie apocalypse survival statergies with me.



I'm prepared. I want to know who else is.

Hahaha awesome. I already got my rifle for the zombie Apocalypse and learned all my strategies from the military.

Tried and true list of things to talk about. Never fails.

First make it clear you are not interested in anything she has to say.

Then use this list in exact order:

Beer

Football

Stockcar racing

Junk food

Snowmobiling

Fishing


If she hasn't said a word, she is obviously a boxing fan.

I know exactly how you feel!!! Figuring out what to talk about with someone, espeically on a first or second face to face meeting is terribly worisome, and can lead to feelings of despair and "gee, maybe I shouldn't go out!"

Many people have had the idea of going somewhere and doing some activity together. Go to a museam, because it will automatically provide you with good topics that are fairly depthy and interesting. Walking around from display to display also puts you at your ease...if you are just sitting across from each other you either have to look at the table, other people, or stare into your date's face (awkward if it is your first). Then you can go eat and have a conversation already going!

I'm working on melee combat and bludgeoning weaponry. Guns have the problem of running out of ammo, and as cool samurai swords and machetes are, you run the risk of the blade dulling, and it can't be easy to constantly swing at the power required to decapitate the undead menace.

Crowbars are my top choice. Their construction and material will give it a longer life, won't likely bend like a golf club or shatter like a wooden bat, ie. cricket or baseball bat. You also get the added bonus of having a tool for jimmying. The pointy end you can ram right through the zombie's eye socket as well as the option to go the traditional beating route.
