Are You A Great Date?

Many years ago I was having lunch with my friend Scott and we were talking about men, women, sex, love and dating. It was a very fun conversation….one that I never forgot, because he said to me: “the most important thing a woman can do on a date is to be enthusiastic. If she is showing up as interested in getting to know me, then I will want to know more about her.”

This was quite surprising for me because I was showing up on dates trying to instantly figure out, “Is he the one for me?” “How can he make me happy?”

I wasn’t there with very much enthusiasm….so, that conversation with Scott was turning point for me. It changed, forever, how I interacted on dates.

Bringing an attitude of enthusiasm and curiosity to a date makes sense doesn’t it? And, since the point of dating is to get to know someone, I thought I would share with you some great questions that will add a fun factor and open up the conversation:

If you could have dinner with 3 people, living or dead, who would you invite & why?
What are you doing to make the world a better place?
What’s the best thing you have ever eaten?
What is your vision for a great relationship?
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
What are your favorite guilty pleasures?
What are a few of the things on your “bucket list?”
If you were going to save a species… which one would it be and why?
What was your favorite book or fairytale when you were a child?
Who is your celebrity crush? (mine is Sting)
What has been your best ever travel experience?

Here’s another good reason to bring your enthusiasm and really get to know someone….even if the “date” isn’t your soulmate, he or she might become a friend and ultimately introduce you to your soulmate. This has happened to several people I know.

Wishing you love, laughter and magical kisses,
