Re: first date duds
Cis het man here, simply befuddled that this can actually happen enough to be noteworthy!
I... but... how do you go on a date and not poke questions at someone???

Re: first date duds
Maybe they're just assuming that women are going to ramble on and on about themselves just like they do? Seems terribly boring!

Re: first date duds
Being shocked and confused when you hear a story like this might indicate that this is not a problem you have.

I suspect your intentions are good. But I find this response troubling... maybe because...

In my experience, this kind of monologue behavior happens every day, nearly everywhere I go. I don't have to have a particular gender (or be on a date) to notice it. If you are shocked that this happens, you might not be paying attention.

Or maybe you and all of your friends are awesome conversationalists. I prefer that scenario.
