I’ve you’ve ever written about romance and relationships, you know it’s a minefield. We are all full of foibles. For those of us who pen fiction, trying to capture humans in print in order to bring characters of both sexes realistically to life is never simple.
Then there’s caricature. And humo(u)r. Recently, courtesy of Twitter, I came across this:
Those questions come from a woman. Therefore, as a man, I tread here lightly. I will say this, though: they are mostly hilarious. A few choice examples:
13. Tell me in which ways I remind you of your mother.
Yep, that’ll frighten off most guys for sure. That’s a keeper. If in need, try that on any man.
14. If you had to murder one of your closest friends in cold blood, which one would you choose?
On the surface, that also seems a winner. But be careful. Before trying to answer, quite a few men might also be thinking, ‘Wow, that clearly deranged mind of hers makes me fancy her even more.’ (Not me, of course. I wouldn’t have thought that.)
15. Who on Earth wears Crocs to a dinner date? In the winter, no less?
This couldn’t be directed at me. I’ve never owned a pair. I thought they were for five year olds?
30. Imagine you slept with my best friend. How was it?
Now, for a man, here’s where marital status matters greatly. Coming at you from a girlfriend, well, that question’s one thing. But if comes at you from your wife…. it has now become MUCH scarier.
32. Share the last time you faked a British accent to sound smarter.
This has to be from an American web site. For has the author actually been to certain, uh, intellectual locales here in the United Kingdom? Or ever even watched EastEnders?
Have a good day, wherever you are in the world. That’s enough now. Everyone off the internet. Back to work! 🙂
