2) Are your first date questions a demand or a open ended request to learn about your mate? If they are open are you ready for all answers, or looking for a reason to dismiss the person?
How old are you? Do you have kids? Did you grow up with both parents? Where did you go to school?
3) How is social blindness having us ask questions that don’t match the reality of our times? economic inequality, extreme levels of incarceration.
4) Do we think we can bully our way to our toxically ambitious goal? If I ask what your goals are in life on he first date it will help me weed out the men who won’t make a million. dollars.
5) How many of our men enjoy being bullyed due to trauma in their pst relationships or growing up with their parents? Are you looking to argue and can’t live in peace.
