As I mentioned earlier in the week, I read a LOT of blogs. Some that you probably wouldn’t imagine I’d be a fan of.
I was laughing my ass off yesterday as I read this post in Very Smart Brothas – How To Answer Questions So That I’ll Never Call You. The gentlemen at VSB are not in the slightest bit politically correct, so you probably shouldn’t click the link if you aren’t familiar with their blog and offend easily.
I’m just gonna go ahead and quote the beginning of the post, because it’s just that good:
“I’m one of those people that believes when it comes to the opposite sex and dating, you usually get what you deserve. It’s not to say that if your man cheats on you that you deserved it, but generally speaking, I think that somewhere along the line, you’ve been given some kind of hint as to what kind of person you’re dealing with.
People just don’t ask the right questions. We get so caught up in wanting somebody, that we forget that we’d hate it if we ended up dating an axe-murdering serial killer who committed all of his crimes while wearing a pink thong and yelling out “Zorro”. Thing is, you might know that if you asked about Zorro, haphazardly. But who does that?”
Smart, right? And funny. The rest of the post details some questions he asks women.
Anyway, this got to me thinking about how much I really suck at this question asking thing. I’ve been trying to get better at it lately. And I have. Gotten better. But I still suck.
I’ve written about this before. There’s just something about the whole asking direct questions of someone you don’t know well, it makes me uneasy. Like I’m being nosy. And I hate nosy.
There is one thing I do make sure to ask, though:
How often do you see/speak to your family? I cannot deal with a guy who doesn’t ever speak to his family. Conversely, I find myself a little freaked out by the mamma’s boy thing. But whatever the relationship is, I think it can tell me a lot about a guy.
Other than that - I’m stumped. And I don’t think the VSB questions would do me much good at all.
