It should be pretty easy to talk to a girl for five minutes without revealing a lot of damaging personal info about yourself. But this monologue, to which one of my speed dating friends was recently treated, proves otherwise. Having speed dated the offender twice myself, I can confirm that this is typical of him.
She asked, “What do you like to do?”
He answered, “Well, I like to drink a lot but I just bought a house so I don’t have money to spend on drinking, which is a bummer. The money’s going into work on the house, so for now, I’m still living in my parents’ basement. But it’s actually a good thing that I don’t have money so that I can’t gamble too much anymore. I do still buy scratch-off tickets, because I don’t really think that’s gambling. Do you?”
I’d guess bluffing wasn’t the main skill that he brought to the table back in his gambling days.
