Re: first date duds
Gaah. That's depressing. I'm looking at possibly re-entering the dating pool after a long relationship and everyone has horror stories, but this is, while less horrifying, far more grim.

Re: first date duds
I have been on several first dates in the past year and there was not a single one where we didn't both ask each other many things about each other. Maybe that counters the grim impression a little? Although I am a straight man so all my dates have been with women.

Re: first date duds
Yeah, sorry. I really don't find that an effective counter to the grimness, as a female-identified person.

Re: first date duds
Agreed. So your sample of women shows that they ask questions about you, but her sample of men shows that they don't ask about her. Sounds like your datasets are telling the same story.

Re: first date duds
Not exactly entirely the same, since that commenter said it went both ways. Each of those women had at least one first date in which they got asked a lot of things about themselves.
