Post your Good idea / Bad idea (for dating).

This is meant to be somewhat humorous (i'm thinking Animaniacs style)

Here's one of mine...

Good idea:
Asking someone about their interests in a first message on a dating site.

Bad idea:
Writing only "dtf?" as your first message.

:lol:

You get the idea. Go nuts

I think we over analyse what to say or do. Just treat them like a new friend you're getting to know.
Long as their isn't talk about moving in, marriage, kids ect you'll be fine lol

That above one, I know women who would totally be into shrunken heads.

Below one, I'd prefer neither but bagpipes would be more entertaining.

Are you sure about that, the first part I mean?

My family is like a cesspool of crazy or something.

'Good' Idea: Subtlely make it clear how 'well-travelled' you are, and try to use the phrase 'good food' at least once or twice.

'Bad' Idea: Try to impress the other party with your extensive knowledge of serial killers.


I'd probably be more comfortable in a dating situation if these designations were reversed, but then again I'm pretty weird.... :wink:

Most times, talking about the family "breaks the ice."

Actually I'd switch them too, as long as you aren't endorsing the serial killers.

I certainly don't endorse or admire serial killers, but I do have a fascination with the phenomenon.
