ayos :thumbsupsmiley:

So how about a date, Ms. LoveSpell? ;)
O baka naman matrona ka na ha?! Mamaya pag tinanong na kita ng mga bagay tungkol sa 'yo, makwento mo sa 'kin yung mga kinu-kwento ng lola ko. :P


Unlike some of the posts above, I shy away from asking "interview questions." I have a different way of screening the "potentials." Asking interview questions is, to be honest, boring not just for her but for me as well. And if I'm asked an interview question, sasagutin ko ng "Are you going to hire me, ma'am? May I state the compensation & benefits package that I want?"

There's a logic and science behind this. AND rather than being the one being "screened" by the girl, I'm the one who assesses her. (which reminds me, this is also a good way to start the date. tell her that you are there to see if she'll fit the job. do this in a humorous manner.)

Pag nakita kong hindi kami click, I'll just say, "Teka, kailangan ko na pa lang umuwi. Kailangan ko kasing paliguan tska sipilyuhan yung pusa ko eh."

Parang gusto ko yatang pag usapan at itanong kung
-buhay pa ba nanay mo?
-mahilig ka ba sa aso o sa pusa?
-may poon ba kayo sa bahay?

Politics and economics.

Differing views can lead to friction, which can lead to sparks, which can lead to attraction.

The most memorable first date experience I had was with my recent ex-GF (5 years running. heheheh.) I had no idea how to kick-off the conversation, so I came up with this game (which, in retrospect, was probably what made her think I was full of surprises, something she never thought I was capable of, based on her impression of me at work.) The rules were pretty simple; she would be entitled to ask me any hypothetical question she wouldn't dare ask a boyfriend, then I would answer her as truthfully as possible. I'd get my turn, of course. heheheh. It was a great way to break the ice and a real eye-opener, as well. Needless to say, we didn't feel the need to keep any more secrets after that. ^_^

My first date alone w/ her after several group dates: we talked about other barkadas, where we'd like to go, things we'd like to do... parang continuation lang. It was a successful date.

My very first date w/o previous barakada dates, yung tipong casual meetings before then I asked for a date: we talked about the movie we watched, what I thought of her before (to confirm if my impression of her was right), things that we'd probably both enjoy doing together (dining, art films, etc.), plans for next possible date... Also successful

My blind dates? Mostly disastrous...

Hear hear. Never talk about past relationships. That topic is a looooong way off in any relationship.

first dates are important so one can gauge if a 2nd, 3rd or more dates are worth it...its an opportunity to evaluate if she has something more to offer other than looks...first dates provide me information to decide whether this person is worth a second and serious look...

Well simple lang naman topics namin like:

If man evolved from monkeys and apes, why do we still have monkeys and apes?
Can you cry under water?
If a deaf person has to go to court, is it still called a hearing?
If olive oil comes from olives, where does baby oil come from?

Mukhang galit ka talaga sa men ah haha... O baka para kang si Renee Zellweger sa Jerry Maguire ng sinabi nya na "Men are the enemy. But I still love the enemy." :wub:

usually before a first date, i would already be calling her on the telephone so by the time we meet, we would be more attuned to our particular interests and hopefully the conversation will start off from there. pero kung talagang set-up blind date as in doon lang kayo nagkita...i guess the guy has to be responsible for probing what are the interests of the girl... :lol:

I've been fairly successful at the game. And here is what I know.

Point of first conversations is to make her feel at ease with you. So nothing big. Don't ask her about religion or the meaning of life. And NO! Don't brag about that imaginary BMW you have at the garage of your imaginary beach house. Well, I guess we all know that.

But here's the thing. There is a GOAL. And many, without clue, just continue on blabbering without a hint of what that goal is. Hence, the conversation becomes POINTLESS...

This is the secret. The goal. If you can get a girl to tell you what her hopes and dreams in life are, then she is yours for the taking. Nope. You can't ask "So, what are your hopes and dreams in life are?". That would be just dumb. You'd be better suited as a Ms. Universe pageant host. You have to make her reveal those things, without you directly asking it. Gets?

Straight from House season 1 (Dr. Wilson mentioned this dating tip when Dr. House was about to go on a date with Cameron):

Talk about her HDA: Hopes, Dreams and Aspirations!
