Ladies How Do You Feel About The Question, "Tell Me About Yourself" by Laveda(f): 3:51pm On Oct 12
So I came across this post and I thought I should share here and get the opinion of others.

Ladies are you comfortable with a guy always asking, can I get to know you better? Is it a question you don't like and you think they should stop? What's really wrong with it?

And the guys, don't you think you should come up with a better way of striking conversations?

I hate this type of question to be honest..A lot men don't realize this type of question sounds stupid..

So, if he ask me this question, I will simply reply him IM NOT INTERESTED FOR THE JOB INTERVIEW right now... I got a job already. cool

Men shud find other ways to have a better conversation especially when its ur first time to talk to that person..There are so many interesting topics where u can exchange ideas rather than asking this BS type of question..

Madam it isn't expected that the answer will come in a job interview answer kinda structure...It is impossible to know a new person youre just meeting without a brief Intro....The problem is that most ladies don't know the reply to this question....

Maybe the question is coming too soon and they want you to just flow with the conversation and not bring that up immediately, don't you think?

If your father was as rich and popular as DJ Cuppy's dad (Femi Otedola), then I consider the question Stupid.

But if your father is as broke and unpopular IN the society , BITCH TELL ME ABOUT YOURSELF.

I just think the question is too broad, bland and boring. 3 b's. It gives me interview vibes where i feel like i need to sell myself to you by force. Its not forcefully done, i should willingly want to tell you about myself. They're so many ways to get to know someone, that once you ask me that question, i'm mentally drawn out of the conversation. Men love the chase, the thrill of getting to know a mysterious lady but i personally feel they should be creative about it. Set yourself apart from all the typical and boring questions that every guy asks, you may be more successful. Just saying

Hmmm, maybe maybe not. The question is...how will there be a convo if both parties, that just met do not open up about themselves?. What I do now, is to tell you about myself and then ask you to do same.

Don't you think you should just pick a question and ask rather than asking her to tell you about herself like it's an "interview"?

Maybe because it is a generic question. Often misused and over used.

This question is so unnecessary & No offense but this type of question I only encountered with Nigerian men..

Why not introduce urself first instead? That is how the proper conversation starts..

My dear, stop all these 19th century fairy tale. Some ladies are just mentally lazy. Asking you to talk about yourself isn't meant to be a formal or structured form of response.
@Laveda, I think this topic should be about WHAT DO GUYS MEAN WHEN THEY ASK LADIES TO TELL THEM ABOUT THEMSELVES?

It's not a fairy tale love, its reality. 'Tell me about yourself?' Ive lived in this world for 22 years, i could literally write an autobiography, where do i start? How about being more specific and interesting with your question? It's not rocket science. It's basic social and human interaction skills that everyone should have. It has nothing to do with being mentally lazy.

What you do, your likes, personality and fantasies.....

So when you ask that question, what specifically do you want to hear? And why cant you just go straight to the point. Funny enough ..i gave my number to a guy yesterday. Very attractive physically, and we started talking. The minute he asked me that question, he just instantly became unattractive to me. I don't know why and Im yet to respond to the message. You guys should do better.
