Go Deeper

One of the best part of going out with someone new is exploring their personality.  Not only are you putting in face time to determine how strong your attraction is, you also get to discover the way they think.

When things are going well, you move past the shallow conversations and small talk. I love to go deeper in conversations and find out how much we are alike, how we differ, and even learn something new.

Once you go below the surface, you find out what a person is truly passionate about. In my experience, this is how you manage to get to a second and third dates.  You both are so captivated by the conversation, you can’t wait for another opportunity to, well go deeper!

It is always a great sign when you can have a great discussion with someone you are attracted to.  I think that a person’s dating conversation can make or break a date.  Have you ever been  on a second date with someone whose conversation left you confused, annoyed, or bored? Trust me, if you struggle with this, it’s something you should work on.

What do you like to discuss on a date? If you find out that you are intellectually unmatched, do you think your attraction to the person would fade?

GM All!

what do i like to discuss on a date? pretty much anything and everything. even if it’s a topic i’m not up on, it’s an opportunity to learn something new. if there’s no engaging convo on the first date i wouldn’t look forward to a second. deep convo is about the best way to really get to know someone.

Eventually it would….I mean the physical will get my attention in the beginning but that alone won’t/can’t keep it. I wouldn’t want to be in a relationship with someone I can’t have meaningful,intellectual convo with…granted, we won’t be discussing the string theory of the evolution of the cosmos/universe but I don’t want to be “booed up” with Cleophus the fool either.

I say keep be open to discuss anything, because thats how you will get to know the person, you can get some insight on how the person may be. I don’t like rules that say one the first date you shouldn’t talk about politics or religion. If the conversation is flowing go with it.

LadyJ- why not discuss past relationships especially if there is a baby mama involved, somethings can be revealed about them in a relationships.

A woman’s most attractive attribute is her brain. Without intelligence and maturity, it doesn’t really much matter what she looks like, as far as actual relationships go.

Water seeks its own level, and like-minded people are the same. There’s someone for everyone.

does actions over time make you know a person more vs convo???

I have been told by some of my male friends thats how women will get to know a man best…let his actions speak (actions speak louder than words). Let his actions reveal who his is. I wonder is that true because some men internalize, and are not as revealing as some women in conversations. Maybe thats how I get in trouble with dating because I like to ask questions, I think it helps you understand a person.

A good friend of mine said he went out on one date with women she asked some many questions on the first date, she won’t stop talking. He said it was a big turn off. So you have gauge how deep you go, because it could turn into annoyance!!

i totally agree w/abc’s comment. when two people are like minded there’s no effort to get “deep.” it’s one of those things where you are or you aren’t. not saying that one is super serious 24/7 but the desire to have more than a surface convo is there and like parties naturally gravitate towards that opportunity. the first deep convo one can have is by looking their person of interest in the eyes. it’s there that you find out most of what you need to know.

“Have you ever been on a second date with someone whose conversation left you confused, annoyed, or bored?”

YES! I have seen this alot. Some of these females are full of it. Bragging on themselves and just stroking their ego’s. It’s almost like they are trying to sell themselves to you sometimes.

Also women complain about this, but women in Atlanta have this REAL bad: The whole name dropping where you go, who you hang with, yada yada and it reeks of desperation for acceptance.

“What do you like to discuss on a date?”

What I discuss on the a date is not much. I have a formula. I try to listen. The idea for guys is to kinda of be a psychiatrist. I want her talking as much as possible. For guys, also you have to ask the right questions. I start off with the general stuff, get a good feel for them, then I ask the real questions, like when the last time they were in love, what their last relationship was like, what type of guys they like etc. You dont want to come off like a private investigator, but you want her engaged. You would be surprised what you can find out if you listen.

Good morning all!

Being that I am a person who loves communication, I’m not so much into necessarily WHAT it is I talk about with a person. I just simply enjoy the banter of back and forth communication & conversation. YES, it is a turn off to be bombarded by overly sexual questions and topics in the beginning but other than that, I’m open. I simply cannot stand when I feel i have to pull strands of my hair out just to keep the convo from drowning. If we have to force a convo early on, then that causes my interest to wane that much faster.

I don’t want to be the one who always has to come up with a subject to discuss. I tend to throw many questions out there, so i like for the other person to be able to throw some back. Make me think

Hola Happy People!

I will say this. I like for conversations to take a natural flow…nothing pushed, nothing planned, I hate the invasive conversations and conversations that feels like an interview. I believe in the Biblical principle that iron sharpens iron. Therefore both parties must have the marbles to go deep otherwise you get the frivolous stuff like weaves, nails and who can fart the loudest. Disclaimer that does not mean the conversation has to be stiff it just means you cannot go deep with a novice or unreflective thinker

Through conversation you get to know a person, especially if they’re always serious or always silly. Through conversation you quickly find out if there are intellectual layers to a person (much like Dante’s Inferno).

Good Morning All,

I enjoy a conversation that flows, much like the rest of you guys do. I don’t want to feel like I’m being tested on different subjects or feel as though I’m being interviewed as Prof stated. I love the natural, easy, flow of a genuine conversation.

Dan

December 10th, 2009

If you find out that you are intellectually unmatched, do you think your attraction to the person would fade?

and

I don’t like rules that say one the [any] date you shouldn’t talk about politics or religion. If the conversation is flowing go with it.

The first of these is my main problem. I love to converse (not conversate) with an intelligent person. A stimulating discussion with an attractive woman is the best thing ever.

The second point is a matter of great pride and interest to me. A debate about politics (as theater or political practice) and religion (no matter how close the topic is to your belief system) is tough enough. But to have not only the courage of one’s convictions, but the intellect to express those convictions passionately (and dispassionately when appropriate) is a beautiful thing.

Religion, politics, and someone’s passion in life grants a window into what kinda person you’re dealing with. Watch the way someone eyes or voice lights up when speaking about something they are passionate about. It sheds a true light on that person; sometimes, their soul.

@Sassy/WonderWoman

Observation has it’s place, but active listening is appropriate as well.

Don’t just sit there waiting for the guy to pique your interest (I’m not on this date to entertain you), gauge his level of intellect vs. yours.

It sounds silly, but I know by the ‘level’ (i.e. logic, interpretation) of a woman’s conversation, whether or not my interest is physical or more. If all we’re talking about is pop culture or news of the day, I’m kinda done. If there are no personal revelations or discussion about what life has taught you thus far, she kinda slots herself into ‘jumpoff’ status.

If you’re looking for a real connection, create one.

I like the natural flow of a conversation as well, nothing forced or too much like an interview, as has been stated. I like those conversations where you find out by listening/watching as opposed to asking everything

Dan – “Watch the way someone eyes or voice lights up when speaking about something they are passionate about. It sheds a true light on that person; sometimes, their soul.” ^5 on this one, so true!

I hate small talk. I don’t want to know about your favorite color, or what your day was like (if I find myself having those conversations, I check out mentally).

I want to know what drives a person. What gets you up in the morning. What’s the one thing in your life that, given the opportunity you would do day in and day out? I’ve been known to ask “what is your passion?”

Why beat around the bush? I’m not trying to have fo/five dates and not know anything about you other than particulars.

Well that goes without saying!

Oh yea, I have found that the type of date often dictates the flow of conversation. I like it when we get together as a team and plan something fun where you can be silly and trip out like riding go carts or going to look at christmas lights. I like going to see a musical piece at the ASO and coffee afterwards…those things help stimulate the conversation.

Pet Peeve: I hate to go see a movie and the person acts like the movie was “real” when we discuss it afterwards. Just because it is on TV does not mean it is real.

‘Activity’ dates in the beginning are not my thing. Later in a relationship, they can be “team building” exercises. But in the beginning, I want to get to know you (all of you). I need to know if this is worth what little time I have to devote to it. And going somewhere participating in activities isn’t conducive to that, IMO.

How can we talk if we always doing something?

Dan,

IMO an activity followed by a nice cup of coffee or an ice cream cone is great. I feel it took me 30 plus years to become who I am so staring in my face looking down my throat is not going to give you everything you need to know. Observation, seeing a person in action, watching them interact and respond to others all adds to getting a 360 insight.

While it is nice to know what gives a person motivation it is also just as important to pay attention to the little things. The things that some may think insignificant.

Knowing what makes me cry is getting in deep but knowing how to make me smile shows you care.

Life is deep. The cares of this world are heavy. Being able to find the lighthearted and enjoy each other to the fullest amid all that exist is where I have to be with one.

Balance is the key. One can be too serious and stifled just like another can be too silly and frivolous. Find balance, you find peace.

Avoid those that will not let you in as well as those that lack a level of mystery.

Once I was talking to someone about what had gone on in my day at work and out of nowhere he breaks out with a question about what I thought our strategy in the Middle East should be (or words to that effect.) I was like, “Seriously?!?!?”

I wanted to say, “Okay, yeah, mphcka, you smart. You well read. You know sht. I still ain’t impressed.” (Intentional bad grammar.)

Needless to say, that sht fizzled quickly. Hell, if I want to be tested on current events and IQ type sht, I will take a frickin’ current events or continuing education class at a local college. I’m trying to eat some pizza and have fun on a date.

I’m with you, esp. on the balance.

In all, I’m a lighthearted dude (’the cares of this world’ will eat you alive if you let them), but I just don’t give time to vacuousness.

More people vote for American Idol than for President of the United States. That fact has me real leery of a person over 21 that can’t get into a discussion about issues outside of reality TV.

I’m sorry if that sounds too caustic, but I need an intellectual match. I need to bounce my ideas off my woman and have her tell me ‘it’ll be okay’ (if only to say it), but she can’t do that if she don’t know what’s going on.

And yes, learning what makes her smile is as important. Because making her smile makes me smile and grants relief to the cares of that day at least.

One thing I have learned about those that think they are so smart. Well they are too dumb to realize that they are at the bottom of the thinking chain. Plus repeating what you heard on CNN or read in the New York Times does not prove intellect. Intellect is having the ability to apply knowledge.

Hell, my uncle is a medical doctor and he is cool azz hell…straight funny, but he can hold his own in any conversation…shoot he likes playing spades, eating hot fried fish drinking a cold beer and talking more smack than me.

What do you like to discuss on a date?

I keep the topics open and defer to the other person as to the depth and intimacy of the conversation. Sometimes what you’re reticent to inquire about one Date 1 you establish a comfort level to ask on Date 2 or 3. I really prefer to fall back into bartender mode and just listen; sometimes you can find out just as much by what’s not said or learn things before asking a specific question just by listening.

If you find out that you are intellectually unmatched, do you think your attraction to the person would fade?

Definitely, it would make the relationship regress. You want to be on the same intellectual level engaging and challenging each other, not constantly explaining seemingly simple concepts or trying to persuade open-mindedness like releasing an animal from a steel trap.

Have you ever been on a second date with someone whose conversation left you confused, annoyed, or bored?

Sure, and then you have to assess if it’s a bad episode or par for the course.

Hello folks….

Going deep ha WD…U dont like going deep tho..

I doubt discussing deep politics,finance,ur job etc wld be an interesting Deep subject(s) for a date..
I agree with Proff/School..lets just take it easy and let the conversation flow..
If u 2 pple vibe,sure enough some interesting things to talk about will come up..there is so much deep stuff going on in Atlanta right now for example that u bound to touch on them and get somebody’s interst level,intelligence and position on those matters without having to force things.
A date “interview” too is a turn of. You hate to be under the spotlight as it were,like u being asked to pass thru some test.

And i agree that somebody’s intelligence level,etc is something u kinda gather upfront based on ur initial discussions on the phone, what they do for a living,where they went to school etc.
Deep to me and what i may want to find out about them is how they interact with their family,where they going for xmas/thankgiving and why,where their daddy/mum is at and when they last spoke and their justification for that foreclosure mishap,their circle of friends,who married,who is not etc and where they hang out on the regular on weekends…
It wont be an interview..we chopping the brisket,she driving and im drinking the liqor,she on some wine and she getting a lil animated but still in control and talking…we going deep(ur three words for the day)

How dee folks!

Hey MIA gang,

Deep convo’s in dating/relationships….they defintely have their time & place. When I was dating……I always got hit with the “why is such a pretty lady like you single”….I hated this question with a passion!!!Uuugggh. As if to say ” what’s wrong with you?”. Some people just don’t know how to let it flow naturally, they get all uptight and do the practice drill line of questions from Dating 101.

In dating, especially in the beginning, just keep it simple and it goes into deep topics, let it flow or just know when to change the subject if there is something you don’t want to talk about at that time.
My fiance and I text each other alot, even when we are home together. Sometimes, we text while we are sitting next to each other just to say something fre*ky so we the kids don’t hear.

And I’m sitting here on Capitol Hill.
Well, it’s a long, long journey
To the capital city.

But I know I’ll be a law someday
At least I hope and pray that I will,

Such would astound you
The joy of children laughing around you

These are the makings of you

The righteous way to go
Little one would know
I believe if I told them so
You’re second to none
The love of all mankind

Should reflect some sign
Of these words I’ve tried to recite
They’re close but not quite
Almost impossible to do
Reciting the making of you

Does/should finding out someone’s history (pattern, RECORD) change your opinion of him/her?

Great question b/c I’ve witnessed a lot of people in “New Atlanta” talk in third person about themselves…more or less projecting who they would like to be and not who they are and/or have been thus far.

Publix joined into the development after being told that the developer was gonna do certain things. The original developer dropped the project in 2004 and HJ Russell took over then. Then, the real estate market plummeted.

Things went south. It is a small store (the MLK). (no pharmacy because the resident asked that they don’t put one in it because a privately black owned pharmacist was in the area and didn’t want to put him out of business.

Numbers is a major part of the issue. They are considering dropping out of Atlantic Station, too, when its lease is up (People don’t go to Atlantic Station for groceries.). The Publix at North Ave/Piedmont does 50% more business than the ones on the other side of the connector.

Not sure what you guys are talking about, but here’s my MIA story: Let me preface this post with “no way I could have made this up” and if it’s long, I am sorry.

A male associate that I hadn’t seen in about 1.5 years called inquiring on my well being. Told him all was well and asked how he was doing. He asked if he could take me to lunch this week. Told him Wed is my b-day but had already made plans, and if he liked Thursday would be nice to have lunch w/him and catch up on things. Anyway, he picks me up and when I opened the car door I knew things may not go as well as I would expect. My first pet peeve was met….wrinkles! He’s a deputy sheriff and today is his day off. He didn’t seem to find the time to iron his clothes before coming to see me. Don’t understand walking around in wrinkled clothes right off the bat.

Anyway, he takes me to Red Lobster. Driving there AWB (Average White Band for those of you with milk behind your ears) is one circa 1977. Ok, I like the group, but hadn’t heard that album/cd in years. Not much convo driving to lunch except the everyday pleasantries. While walking toward the place, I noticed a limp in his walk. He was surprised I detected it because as he stated “I work hard to disguise my limp.” Ok, I make a mental note. At the table, he’s not sure what to talk with me about. He seemed somewhat shy when I first met him and he still is. It seems as though he takes time before forming his sentences, not necessarily meaning he’s thinking before speaking!

You guys are in my head because our conversation is not flowing. I asked if he was still in the house or if he sold it. Right there, BAM, we’re talking about his separation, equity in the house, filing a public notice because he thought she was leaving town, you name it. If I could roll my eyes w/o blinking I would have. I try to veer the convo away from his home and his separation and ask about his job. DAN O DAN, his eyes lit up. That’s all he talked about. His promotion, his duties, the role of police officer v. sherrif deputy, on and on. I became an active “listener.” You know, you can only keep looking at your own plate for so long! Driving back to work, he pointed our every minor traffic violation motorists made. I couldn’t wait to flee from that car.

The college kids will suffer. I’ve always wondered why Publix had so many stores close together over here. MLK and Atlantic Station are about 3.5 miles apart. Then there is one at the intersection of Howell Mill and Collier Road (Near Fellini’s Pizza). Meanwhile…Kroger has their stores spread out more.

great point lady Luvbug,.. really for me and my upbringing,a girl, at 26+ must now know the dos and donts of life.
To see/hear some of these chics at 30 still pondering on what they need to do or still unsure…leaves me wondering???

Now,if his intention is to date u and not jus catch up on work(u say hes an associate) and u interested,u may have to ease him in,kinda lead him into u.That way he becomes more comfortable to talk other personal stuff and so he can ask about u.

Pulling up to the curb slowly in a long Lincoln Town Car or the big Cadillac car. Driving a little slow trying to peep at your Leggs out the corner of his eye without getting caught. He is wearing a diamond cocktail pinky ring about 1 carat tw and a diamond missing with a small amount of dryness between the fingers and on the knuckles

December 10th, 2009
3:07 pm

“Have you ever been on a second date with someone whose conversation left you confused, annoyed, or bored?”

It usually does not make it to second date. In most cases it takes 5-10mins to determine is this person going to be annoying. And when it comes to snuddy city girls their is allot of failure going around. Selfish, self-centered, gimmie your money, it’s all about me women. The first question I ask is what do you think about pre-nups? That’s almost in every case the firing question because they hate the thought of it; I have determined that the reason for that is every woman needs a back up plan in case things don’t work out even if it’s their fault (pitiful I know right). Besides I don’t associate with people who I’m at disadvantage with over trivial things from the get go, so much for equality, need I say more. Lastly, relationships are for dudes who wish to throw their life away and make all the things they work for in vain. If law wasn’t so that woman could easily destroy a Mans life at the snap of a finger I might have more respect for women, but I doubt that will change, but I’ll settle for them watching me enjoy myself cause I can.

December 10th, 2009

Leggs, for the sake of conversation because I have a minute to spare….

That could be one of those “damn if you do, damn if you don’t” situations. Had you asked him if he still lived in the house and he had just said “No, I moved”. Where would the conversation have gone from there? What is it you would have looked to sprout from that question? You asked about his job. Would “it is okay” have been enough of an answer? Where would that have gone? You probably would have thought he was just as unexciting had he given those three word answers.

All I am saying is when we ask questions we have to understand the answer may be more involved that we are expecting, however the true answer. Our lives is what we have. It’s what we know.

Now to avoid him talking about his “life” you could have asked him if he thinks humans are the main cause and contributors of global warming. You all could have debated that but what would have been gained at the end of the day.

Many seek profound, philosophical exchange that leads to nothing. You leave knowing no more about the person than you walked in the door.

Lemme take you back Cameeli….my granny or her sister would send us to the store back in the day and get stuff like “souse meat”..you know that stuff that you HAD to keep cold b/c otherwise it would melt. They would give us $5 and tell us to go and “get $3 worth of souse meat” and that would be for sammiches for lunch. I know,right?
Back when I first moved to Atlanta I saw a package of souse meat in one of those little knock off Asian owned super markets and read the ingredients…it had erry part of the hog from the roota to the toota and at that point I decided to stop eating meat…and still don’t.

@Raqi, it definitely is a fine line. When one asks questions, and one gets answers I don’t think one expects the entire rest of the time together be spent on that question. I was of the opinion that conversing consisted of a variety of topics, not just one. He didn’t ask me anything because he couldn’t stop talking on the two questions I asked. Ok, I concede. I asked the 2 questions and he answered them.

No, he pulled up in a shiny black Honda Accord that appeard spit shining clean inside and out. He apologized for the dirtiness saying he meant to clean it this week. I’m looking in the back and then at the dashboard wondering what needs cleaning??? Anyway, close cropped hair w/gray around the edges. Not a bad looking dude. Now, onto those fingers. Unreal, I couldn’t stop looking at his hands, they look older than mine….all wrinkly and skinny like a witch’s hand. Really, it was quite amazing looking at his non manly dry hands. Almost like those with long piano fingers only crusty looking.

on the honda comment. i would have gone back in the buiding. i remember asking this guy i dated (looking for a new car) if he’d checked out any honda and he looked as if i’d grown 2 heads. that is soooo a girl car. uh uh, no way hosea. then an old cat at that. that is if it’s anything more and slightly passed the FZ. just sayin

Some don’t want to see another happy and all giddy in love. Others want to pour negative thoughts in your eardrums in the hopes that you start second guessing things.

That’s something they need to deal with…i’m not easily influenced about what others feel or say.

If it secong guess my best, what does that say about me?!!??

nice topic… intellect is basic but chemistry applies tremendously along with laughter and a lighter side..today I will have coffee with an old aquaintance we found each other on the web…we’ll see after 10+ years of disconnect how this coffee time goes..
