"Are you easy to train?" and other questions to ask a guy

Updated on August 20, 2011

Fun, and serious, questions to ask a guy before you start dating.

Many women make mistakes early in a dating relationship that causes grief to work through later on. Especially if the troubles with the guy don't lead to a break-up because you're so invested in the relationship that you don't want to give up on it, but you feel the guy isn't handling the relationship very well.

To avoid these issues that might appear later on, start with some early questions, maybe after you've met and chatted for a bit. There's never a better time to begin to understand a man than before you're actually dating him and these questions will reveal the type of man he is.

There are two questions that are more important than anything else that you need answers to:

Question #1

Why are you single?

The first question is obvious but the answer isn't always easily evident. Notice that you don't ask "if you're single" but "Why you're single". This involves a much more detailed answer form the guy and you can continue along this line of questioning for quite a while. Just follow the lead of his answers. Try to wedge in why he broke up with his last girlfriend and how often he sees or talks to his mother too.

Question #2

Are you easy to train?

This is more of a fun question but the answers are deadly serious. How will he treat you as the relationship (if there is to be one) progresses? Is he willing to please you or expecting you to do all the relationship heavy lifting?

Additional questions along this line include:

What does romance mean to you?

What would be your ideal holiday?

If you were a character in a movie who would you be?

What is your favorite day of the week?

How would you describe yourself in a personal ad?

When you were a child what was your favorite thing to do?

I'm sure that you can think of other personality type questions but it's always to have a set list of questions to ask a guy because as you get different answers you will become more familiar with how different personality types answer the questions.

      cblack: "women" or "woman"? Your question has so many connotations that I'm not even sure where to start.

      But, of course, submissive women don't train anything....

      And for the submissive women..."How will you train me?"

      Moving the relationship forward is a mistake that a ,lot of guys make. Too bad for them!

      The key is to watch for her body signals and move accordingly. Her body language opens up, she smiles, touches your arm, keeps her chest pointed to you, instead of twisting around trying to get away, they are all "Go" signals, anything else might be a "Stop" sign.

      Take a peek here:

      I guess I disagree with Dog a little I would really appreciate a girl asking me these questions early especially the single one. It would allow me to express my feelings plus it would mean she is comfortable with me asking similar questions back. I find it is really easy to go to far to fast (at least I think so) in my few dates. They start out hot then get cold after just a few days of talking. I wish there was a way to figure out just where they are comfortable and what they are comfortable with talking with... without accidently going to far to fast.

      You're joking right?

      If my girlfriend had asked me either of those questions when we met, she wouldn't be my girlfriend today.
