How do you answer JDate’s questions without sounding repetitive, cheesy, fake or boring? Let me help you craft personal and enticing answers to both the basic and intimate questions.

“On our First Date, Remind Me to Tell You That Story About…”

Have fun here. Don’t actually tell the story though; the purpose is to tickle your taste buds, dip your toes in the water, and intrigue other daters by sharing just a little tidbit to get them to want to know more. Some great ones I’ve read include:

  • That time I went rappelling on Morocco
  • When I got locked inside a graveyard
  • How I racked up a $9,000 cell phone bill
  • Why a psychic said I would make it into the Guinness Book of World Records

The one-liner should be interesting, short, and enticing. If you can’t think of anything at all to write here, then ask a friend or family member who may recall an event you’re forgetting or who saw something from a different perspective (i.e. you may have thought projectile vomiting  on a bad date was horrific, but hopefully in retrospect you can see how it was funny. Laugh at yourself and you’re sure to make your date laugh too… and to see how humble you are!).
