When I started writing Ask a Guy, I had no idea that it would take off like it has.I am grateful to have such loyal readers who contribute great questions to me.You could also play a game where, for every point scored, the person who earned the point gets to ask a question.Just be sure to choose a game you're sure to win or tie, or you may find yourself doing all the talking.We also just released a book based on the most frequently asked questions we receive: “He’s Not That Complicated: How to Crack a Man’s Romantic Code to Get the Relationship You Want.” You would be amazed (or maybe you wouldn’t be) at how often I am asked if a guy likes them or not.Or what it means when he didn’t text back right away. Here’s a curriculum of common situations (and what to do about them) to check out: Does He Want to Date Me Or Not?One thing you really don’t have is the luxury of time. The trick is to select from among these the questions that are closest to your heart and whose answers are important to you.
These questions are designed to spark the imagination of the person and drift off into speculation.Still, treating experienced users like hackers in the ways we recommend here will generally be the most effective way to get useful answers out of them, too.The first thing to understand is that hackers actually like hard problems and good, thought-provoking questions about them. If you give us an interesting question to chew on we'll be grateful to you; good questions are a stimulus and a gift.Now that use of open source has become widespread, you can often get as good answers from other, more experienced users as from hackers.This is a Good Thing; users tend to be just a little bit more tolerant of the kind of failures newbies often have.You could each write down questions on scraps of paper--serious and fun so the mood doesn't get too heavy - and throw them into jars (yours in one, his in another).
