I seem to run into this a lot and haven’t seen this addressed.
In my first email, I usually ask a few questions and figure the female will answer them, which they usually do, but then they don’t ask anything of me but still seem interested.
You tell your best stories and try hard to be interesting.
You spend a lot of time and energy wondering what the other person thinks of you.
I’ve tracked and analyzed data, spoken to computer scientists and figured out what makes certain profiles successful.
I even wrote a book about what I learned – and included a final chapter written by the man who took me out on my last-ever first date.
My friends were all excited for my between-boyfriend time.
And yet this one guy with the trivia questions was able to bring out your playful side.” The moral of the story is that you are ALWAYS responsible for how you leave a conversation.

This cheeky question is posed to see if she's down with a little sauciness, and how funny or creative she can be with her naughty answer. I'm an active fellow, and I like to know that people I'm interested in are as well. And while I'm not too much of a snob about it, I need to know what she's going to make me listen to.
