The One Question You Should Never Ask On A Date

You’ve heard the saying “there’s no such thing as a bad question”?

Well, when it comes to dating – its wrong.

Two-way conversation is an important part of a successful date – particularly a first or second date – and asking questions is a big part of that.

But not all questions are created equal. In particular, if you’re looking for success in dating, AVOID this question at all cost!:

“WHY ARE YOU STILL SINGLE?”

Here’s what makes this question so toxic on a date:

  • It implies there’s something wrong with your date (whether that’s what you intended to mean or not).
  • It puts your date on the defensive (a terrible way to start a date).
  • Its very hard to answer in a positive way (“Because I’ve been meeting some real creeps?”, etc.)
  • It will likely lead to them asking you the same question – which you’ll also find hard to answer in a positive way.
  • Its irrelevant – who cares why they’re single? They’re here with you now; stop wasting time!
  • It immediately turns a date into an interview – pretty much the worst way to start any date.
