I get questions all the time from women about dating over 50. Everything from how to get asked out, to how to act, what to wear and even what to talk about on the first date.
Although it may seem obvious to some, I’ve come up with 5 not so obvious questions you should NEVER ask a man on a date.
That way you’ll never regret anything, and there is a crystal-clear understanding of topics and questions to steer clear from, at all costs.
1 – Do you notice anything different? Do you like my hair or outfit?
When you ask a man to look at you, your outfit or hair, and then quiz him about what he notices, it’s like asking him to open the hood of a car and making him tell you if he notices anything different about the engine. And remember, not all men are mechanics!
Men don’t always pick up on details that women do. So instead of putting him on the spot, ask him something like, “I got this new dress and I think it makes me look cute and sexy? Do you?”
If you’re looking for a compliment, tell him what to say in your question. Although this seems counterproductive, he will either agree or tell you what he really thinks. Just be prepared for either. Be prepared for the truth.
2 – Do you think this outfit makes me look fat?
Just don’t ask this question. For a better question, refer to number one above. Rephrase it to be something like, “I feel like I’ve gained weight and this dress looks tighter to me. Do you think so?” Again, be prepared for him to either agree or disagree and if you truly believe you’ve gained weight, maybe don’t involve him in this question at all. Get on the scale for clarity.
3 – So whatcha thinking? … (during his favorite LIVE sports game on TV)
With men, asking questions is all about timing. Don’t expect an enthusiastic response (or response at all), if you are drilling him during his favorite sports team’s live game on TV. Wait for half-time to have a conversation and ask questions about the game.
4 – Honey, do you think that woman is prettier than me?
You have great taste, so if you picked her out, then she probably is! Either way he answers, he can’t win. So don’t even ask it.
5 – Honey, what’s wrong? …(after a long day at work)
If you notice he comes home from work extra quiet, tired, frustrated or on edge, let him sit down in his favorite chair and relax for a minute. Don’t immediately start asking questions, wanting to know every detail of the day and what is wrong. He will talk about it when and if he feels like it.
Men don’t always need to talk it out like women do. Let him unwind and regroup and maybe just give him a hug and kiss and leave him alone for a minute.
Every man communicates differently, but these questions are general questions you should steer clear from when you first start dating. Don’t stress and think about these too much. Instead think about all of the questions you CAN ask him.
When all else fails? Plant a super hot kiss on him and walk away for a while. The odds are GREAT that he’ll come find you. ?
