It's starting to look that way.

I'd have been inclined to respond with a questionnaire of my own.

I miss the old days when a guy would come up and say,
"So, you want to go out?".
The girl would reply,
Then they'd go out and most of the time they didn't learn about this other stuff until they been married for at least a year or two.

The forms that use autocorrect are the most annoying ones.

nd wasn't that way better, Cindy?

I'm glad I'm too old (and married) for this to be relevant, because the chance of my filling out this questionnaire are about the same as Dave inviting Barry Manilow to join the RBRs and move into his house.

Or, as the late great John (Dean Wormer) Vernon put it, "Zero. Point. Zero."

I don't think I even have a #2 pencil.

To be fair, guys have never been very inquisitive. It's like the old joke about about what does a guy want from a woman? Show up naked and bring beer.

It's not my fault that less than 5% of the population is sponge worthy.


I would like to add a question:

Can she mow?

Nurse Cindy is right on the money, as usual. I can imagine that my future wife might have failed whatever idiotic test I would have come up as an immature young man. I’m sure I didn’t have the foggiest notion about anything of real importance in relationships. We did it the old-fashioned way and we’re on track to be married forty years.

This makes me nostalgic for the ‘70s disco scene, where the only question was, “What’s your sign?”

I wish I would have asked most of my (awful) first dates a few questions in advance. I could have saved all that money and be retired like NC by now!

Is this ISO-9000 marriage? Or is that the survey you get after the divorce?
