You’re on a date with a beautiful woman, you’re both having a good time and suddenly the wine gets to her head and she begins to ask really dumb questions. The questions are so off-putting that her beauty fades and you begin to wonder how easily you can ditch her in order to find something else to do for the rest of the night. Have you ever been there? Well below are 5 questions out of the many that women tend to ask and whether to answer them or not, and if so, what to answer them with.
1. How Come You Aren’t Married or Have Any Kids?
The real meaning: (see “Are You Gay”) It’s a loaded and unanswerable question and women love to use it on men who have money, look handsome, and seem fun. The logic is “oh my God, why are you available when so many thirsty women want you!” but the reality is that the thirsty women are also flaky, clueless about what they really want, and can be assholes in their own right.
The answer: You can take the “young hustler” approach and go with the old “I’ve been focusing on my career” answer which comes off to her as white noise so it diffuses the question immediately. If you are adventurous you can put the pressure back on the female race by lying that you have come close to marriage a few times and the woman either cheated on you or some other evil act that leaves you a lonely victim, now luckily dating her.
2. Are You Dating Anybody Else?
The real meaning: Tell me something to make me feel special, are you courting me or am I a number in your list of possibilities.
The answer: This depends on how you gauge the level of like this woman has for you. If you’re the catch (money, power, good looks and charm) then tell her yes, this will make her step it up, give you the booty a bit faster and do what she needs to do to prove herself. If she’s the catch (drop-dead gorgeous, woman of your dreams, diamond in the rough) then tell her no, or stay honest with a twist like “I am finally able to go on dates and I find myself lucky enough to be here with you, I have been trying but I am really hoping that tonight is the beginning of a beautiful thing”. Going strong like that will sober the question’s true intent and gain you some points with a good girl.
3. Are You Gay?
The real meaning: Are you a gay man that wants to marry me to fool the world that you are straight so that you can continue to have sex with ball players at your so-called Poker Parties like that one Law and Order episode?
The answer: Drop that dumb broad fast, she asks THIS on a first date!? This is a popular one with black women due to Oprah Winfrey’s big reveal of J.L. King to the world and his sneaky antics to which he popularized the term “on the down low”. She can get the finger, this garbage has stigmatized every single black male for many years and the dumbest of dumb asses dare stage this question to men who take time out to wine and dine them. I either don’t answer, or tell her “yes I am gay” – being that I wouldn’t be seeing her after the date anyway (no patience for stupidity).
4. How Much Money Do you Make At Your Job?
The real meaning: It’s her way of finding out whether you will be taking her to fancy restaurants or the local mom and pop during your relationship. It’s also her way of gauging your financial worth for the details needed to brag or whine about you to her girlfriends.
The answer: Make up a large number in the 6-figure range if you think that she’s dumb enough to believe it. If she’s a Capitalist shark who lacks the tact to know not to ask crap like this, then bluntly say “I make enough” and stare at her until It gets uncomfortable. Either way, this is a pretty obvious deal-breaker, do you want a chick that sizes you up by your bank account?
5. Am I The First (Insert Race) Girl You’ve Dated?
The real meaning: While this is an innocent, and naïve way of seeing if you’re a serial fetishist. The fact that you can flip the question back on her, shows a lack of foresight on her part. I mean it’s a legitimate concern, you don’t want to be somebody’s weapon against racist Daddy, or social experiment from a bet but it’s just bad form to go there. A woman that asks this proves one thing, that is, she is quite aware (at a fault) that you both look different, so there’s 100% chance it will come back up in the future.
The answer: Just be honest and gauge her response, it can lead into some pretty good conversation concerning dating preferences and she will show her cards rather quickly if you can reverse it back on her “no, am I the first (insert race) man, you’ve dated?” Women are normally very open about this type of thing and you can read her like a book if she starts talking.See some words or phrases that you don't understand?
