Dating is for getting to know each other.
And that is your lesson for today. Didn’t that just turn your world upside down?
Okay, listen. Dating requires that you ask a lot of questions. It’s a time for sitting on the hood of a car (preferably one of yours) at midnight in an obscure parking lot, eating take-out and talking about your dreams. And then getting a flashlight shined in your eyes and being questioned by a cop wondering why you’re parked in an obscure parking lot ’cause he’s all out of criminals to chase after. Right? But dating does NOT consist of continually barraging your significant other with meaningless questions that have no beneficial answer and will inevitably lead to a fight. I will now dissect some of the most common pointless girl questions and explain why you need to stop asking them right now!
1. Does this look bad on me? Do I look fat in this?
First of all, what do you EXPECT him to say? The only possible answer here is “No.” Do you really think he’s going to tell you that you’re a fatty and need to lose a few? Of course not. So what is the point of this question? Seriously? Have you ever asked yourself that? Because aside from giving the impression that you are super insecure, there is no point in bringing this up.
TIP: A guy will give you a compliment if he wants to. Fishing it out of him only makes it meaningless.
2. Do you think she’s pretty? Are there any pretty girls at your work?
Sigh. I have had SO many guys complain about their girlfriends asking such ridiculous questions. This is a trick question. If he tells you the truth and says, “Yea, there are a few” — which I guarantee you there ARE — then you will be upset. And if he lies and says there aren’t any, you won’t believe him. The fact of the matter is there are pretty people EVERYWHERE. We will always find others attractive, there is no way around it. You must come to the point where you are secure in yourself and your relationship enough not to be threatened by it.
3. What are you thinking? Why are you quiet? Is something wrong?
AHHHHH! Is nothing sacred? Why does he have to tell you what he’s THINKING?! I promise you that you don’t want to know the real answer to this because it most likely has something to do with sports, food or how much he doesn’t want to have this conversation right now. I don’t think I’ve ever told someone the truth when they’ve asked me what I was thinking because let’s face it, most thoughts are just random. They don’t make sense. Just because someone is quiet or having a thought doesn’t mean something is wrong! If you keep asking him these types of questions there WILL be something wrong very quickly.
