  • No. It's all about her.
  • Of course, but it's also important to ask the other person about themselves... it's give and take
  • No!!! I like to get the other person talking.
  • No then you may come across as cocky which in my book is a HUGE turn-off.
  • Not really, when i went on my first date with my s/o i was in another country, so it was more like staring in awe at everything, and asking him what people were saying, LOL
  • no, i like talking about him.. hehe
  • Anything but your ex's XD Well, just be truth to yourself and don't try to lie
  • No . Makes me feel like I am in the hot seat wether I am on a date or gettingto know someone new at work or whatever...I would much rather discuss subjects of mutural interest.
  • worst thing you could ever do,no:)
  • Yes. WHY NOT?! But of course I would like to know about him too. Its a 2 way thing innit...
  • To an appropriate extent. First and foremost, in the spirit of simply being communicative as you would in any social setting with another person. And then how much I'd reveal of myself would depend upon how comfortable I felt with them and how interested I was in having them know me. and their interest in knowing more about me. Though it's stll going to be relatively lighthearted and superficial knowledge. No unpacking of emotional baggage from any past r/ships especially. True intimacy and revelation takes time. And mutual trust. Just as it should. :)
  • Yes, but I don't want the date to evolve only around me and who I am. It has to be 50/50. We'll talk a little bit of me and a little bit of him.
  • NO I actually keep it quite on a date unless asked and even at that I am quite shy at revealing vertain facts about myself :)
  • Not really, but need a date first:)
  • I'm more of a listener myself!
  • My wife tells me enough about myself that I don't have to.
  • Thats a huge mistake. However, I do like speaking in the 3rd person. Freddie would very much like to take you home after he takes you to McDonalds........
  • I prefer to talk about things I like, it's less embarrassing, and your date can learn things about you by discovering your tastes. It gets stale after a while though, and you inevitably have to talk about deeper things. :/ But, that's fine, when you get to know them, and you feel comfortable talking to them about it. I mean if you didn't, they might not be the right person to date, that is after initial nervous bouts and all, which are supposed to be normal.
  • I only went on one first date. With the man I eventually married. We both talked we both listened.About what God only knows. :)
  • Sure..but limited..
  • Only if they ask.
  • Honestly? I'd rather listen, as long as he doesn't tear me to pieces. If I'm ever guilty of ripping you to pieces, call me out on it!
  • Not really. I'd like to talk about the other person.
  • Not more than I have to yo...
  • I am more interested in the other person, afterall, I know me..I want to know them..I will answer things about myself if asked, but I would much rather listen to them tell me about themselves :)
  • You have to if the other person is going to get to know you. Just don't overwhelm them, and DO NOT be the one-upper (always have a story that "out does" theirs)
  • I found out long ago that women don't like when a guy talks about himself. I let them decide where the converation is headed.
  • It's a long time since I last went on a date, but I hate talking about myself full stop so my answer is probably no :)
  • nooo .... i just let him take over... maybee ill talk about myself when he askss
  • I don't like to talk about myself on a date because if I start I won't stop!!!!
  • Yeah,in fact it's a way to get to know the other person:)
  • You should both talk and both listen.=)
  • I've never been on a date.
  • yes.. of course.. especially when i really like the person im dating:) i always tell good things about me...and im happy to be appreciated.. and as a girl i think talking more about yourself gives u both good conversations.. and he'll get to know you more.. and sometimes he even like to know you more.... :)
  • No I like to ask a lot of questions as my dates are always nervous and I quickly put them at ease. Then enjoy good conversation.
  • I'm afraid that I do, but I make a conscious effort to brag or list what I may think are accomplishments that are "hot scata". However, I have been many places, seen many things, and experienced some remarkable events so I enjoy telling the stories. However, to repeat myself, I try to be a story teller, who just happened to be in a certain place at a certain time, not because of any superior knowledge or skills of my own. If, for example, I mention an exciting vacation, I usually being by saying: "We were lucky enough to have visited _______ . Also, I'm interested in a variety of subjects, and I fear that at times I tend to babble on about subjects which may fascinate me, but which may not interest others. As a result, I will often say: "Please tell me to shut up if I'm boring/bothering you". Finally, when leaving, I often say: "Thanks for listening.".
  • I never go on dates. Dates are for 1950s courtship. If a girl interests me sufficiently I'll get her number and invite her to join me perhaps for a coffee or if I'm heading down town, to join me there for an hour or two. Conversation will be two-sided. I'll ask her about her and tell stories about myself. No one wants to be interviewed and interesting stories demonstrate personality.
  • No and I detest dates who do. The ones who get me to talk about myself even when I know what they are doing get to the top of the list for the effort. Guys are dense when it comes to conversation. Rarely do they ask questions to learn about the woman and seem interested. The ones who do go right to the top of the Really Like List. Asking if she likes his favorite football team does not count.
