My friends play a game on first dates now where it's ask men to name three books they've read by female authors.— holly wood (@girlziplocked) July 13, 2016
It never goes well.
I mean, you signal what a strident feminist you are on the first date, and you are surprised that it "never goes well"? Fortunately, she's clearly doing most guys a favor by revealing this up front and letting them bail before the appetizers arrive.
If I had been asked this question on first date, I would have thought, "Boy, here's a real keeper! I can spend the rest of my life arguing with this harpy, or more likely, her lawyer. I wonder if I can kick out the window in mens' restroom and get out of here..." No one likes Pop-quizzes. It's not endearing.
What...is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?
