After a first or second date, if my date asks, “Do you want to get together again soon?” and I do not want to see this person again, I would probably say “Yes,” and then call later to cancel.
If someone asked me (after we’d been on a few dinner dates) to describe my ideal mate in detail, I would give a detailed answer, even if my answer included qualities that this person did not possess.
If I’d been on a few dates with someone whom I otherwise found very attractive, and this person had consistently had bad breath, and it was really unpleasant for me, I would find a way to tell the person directly and gently that their breath odor bothered me.
If my date shared negative gossip about a mutual friend, I would tell him that I was feeling uncomfortable, angry, or whatever I was actually feeling rather than remaining silent.
If I were attracted to someone, but had no idea how this person felt about me, I would play it safe. I’d wait to find out how the person felt about me before disclosing my feelings of attraction.
If my date told me I had a nice body, I would probably either say something nice about him, or offer some other comeback (rather than simply receiving the compliment).
If someone whom I like put pressure on me to spend time with him at a time when I really wanted to do something else, I would not mention that I had wanted to do something else, even though I still preferred to do this other thing. I would give up my other plans.
If my date cancelled on me at the last minute, and I was really hurt or angry about it, I would tell him or her about my feelings.
If my date was talking nonstop on a topic that did not interest me, I would try to act interested.
If my date felt hurt feelings about something I said and he told me about it, I would appreciate it.
If, on a first date, my date asked me, “Do you have any health problems?” and I had herpes, I would not tell him at that point.
If my date told me he or she was seeking a sexually monogamous relationship, and I knew I did not want that, I would say so.
