I could not understand why so many women in Philadelphia constantly said these three things in the first conversation

I like playing pool
I like Bowling
I don't like watching TV


Well this lady just informed me that they are saying these things because it's a way for men to stop asking to come and sit at your house and not take you anywhere. And the bowling and playing pool thing is something said for a man to have another date idea besides a restaurant.


LOL, it all makes sense now and I will have to hold my laughter during future first conversations-lol

I thought the point of going on dates were so you don't sit at home and watch T.V.

I know that, my point is they are just throwing those activities out there because they think it's the POPULAR thing to say.

Silly - they know there's this oddball foreplay guy in their area who doesn't play pool or bowl but likes to watch TV and they're just doing a little preliminary weeding out.

So, really - we list interests that we really don't like? But - what if we do like them. . you will just assume we do not like them from now on?

Who gave you that advice, someone from Craigslist?
