When it comes to getting to know your date better, the best way to do that is by asking questions. But there are certain questions that you really need to steer clear of when you’re dating an older woman. Questions, which you may have gotten away with asking in your youth have now become totally inappropriate.

But don’t worry, we’re here to offer you the very best advice, and don’t worry if your brain forgets to switch on the filter button when you get nervous, just keep this blog post handy.

How many people have you had sex with?

This is never a good question whether you’re 18 or 80. For a start it’s none of your bloody business and secondly it can come across as though you’re going to be judging her based on the number of partners she’s had. Steer clear of any chat about past relationships, especially on the first couple of dates.

Is this an old picture?

The thing with online dating is that we all use pictures where we look our best. After all, it’s like looking through a catalogue, our personality can’t beam through by mere glance of a picture. So if you think your date looks a bit older or heavier than the picture on the site, just keep quiet about it. You don’t want to destroy the confidence of your date and you could potentially ruin a great relationship.

Are your children always like this?

OK so it goes without saying that attacking your dates child is just a no-go zone. If you’re dating an older woman who has children then you must understand and respect that they will always come first.

My ex wife used to do this in the bedroom…would you try it?

Pretty sure that if you think about it then you know that this question is way out of hand. ANY question surrounding asking your date to do what your ex wife/girlfriend used to do is a no-go. You’ll come across rude, insensitive and actually a bit of an idiot.

Are you menopausal?

Hmmm again, none of your business. And to be honest do you really want to know the ins and outs of the menopause? If topics such as hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and night sweats then maybe you should stay at home with google instead.

If you want the night to go without a hitch then make sure your date feels comfortable and that you do a lot of listening and not just constant questions. Do you have any more tips? Why not share them with us on Twitter @UrbanSocialCom
