    I’ve mentioned the CR on dates. One guy said he posted something once but wouldn’t tell me his screen name! I’m so curious who he is!

    As long as you say it happened to a friend of yours. Don’t discuss previous dates with your date…

    “the craziest date you’ve ever been on”

    I don’t know if it crazy, but a baseball game…this was after a couple of dates. She loved it becasue she had many brothers who loved the Mets…it was a perfect match and we now happily take our kids to games as well…

    “Mike: Don’t you live in Canada? Which baseball teams do you have?”

    you have a good memory….

    Once upon a time Montreal had the Expos, but they left to Washington a couple of years ago 🙁 Thus we switched out allegiance to the Mets!

    We have a lot of family in NY, so when we are in town we try to go…

    Toronto still has a team, so we try to take in a game when we are visiting if we can…

    we also like Hockey, but tickets in Montreal are hard to come by…

    The old standard was the three “F’s”. Food, family and philosophy.

    And the story that goes along with that is,

    Boy takes out a girl he wsas told to speak about the three Fs.

    He asks, do you have a brother, she says no

    He asks, do you like meatballs, she says no.

    So then he asks, If you had a brother, would he like meatballs.

    And he covered all the Fs.

    If the guy decides to be creative and take the girl to a place that is NOT a lobby (gasp), they will certainly have much more to talk about!

    A good idea is to run the conversation about the other person. It makes you come across as interested in them, and gives them what to talk about. Also, the more a person speaks of themselve, the common points you’ll find to which you can relate, and continue the conversation from there. Just don’t forcefully stear the conversation any which way for then you are being either secretive or just plain overbearing and domineering.
