Non-Recommended Questions for Your Five-Minute Speed Date.
BY Jim Stallard
What, in your mind, constitutes “stalking”? Be very, very clear and specific.
Do you have caller ID? What about a doorman?
Do you think there should be consequences for one person misleading another?
When someone claims to be “not interested” in someone else, do you think the feeling is genuine or simply an attempt to suppress strong attractions they are afraid to admit?
What’s your funniest or most embarrassing restraining-order story?
Have you ever been hurt so bad in a relationship that your only consolation is taking revenge on random members of the opposite sex?
Are you the type of person who tends to notice when something deviates even slightly from the norm—like, for example, the taste of a drink?
That sound in your head when you first decide you’re going to spy on someone: clicking or buzzing?
What item are you most likely to leave behind at the scene that forces you to make the frantic return trip at 3 a.m.?
Despite all the expense and hassle, isn’t it worth it when you see it dawning on them that they’re going to pay for what they did?
