How do you answer JDate’s questions without sounding repetitive or cheesy or fake or boring? Let me help you craft personal and inticing answers to both the basic and intimate questions.
“My Past Relationships”
There’s no need to discuss why you were just dumped or why you broke up with your last significant other. Don’t get into the details here of what went wrong, rather talk about what you learned from the demise. This section’s answer shouldn’t be too lengthy, if you find that you’re writing a novel then take that to a journal and leave just the life lessons in your response.
Some examples to use:
I learned what kind of boy/girlfriend I want to be and what kind of girl/boyfriend I need and want
I learned not to sweat the small stuff
I learned that I need affection and that I need someone who enjoys affection in return
I learned how to communicate more effectively
I learned that it’s boring to always agree, but that we need to disagree in a healthy way
I learned not to let things fester but to calmly address issues as they arise
I learned that mutual respect is just as important as mutual attraction
