Don't you feel that he or she might be inclined to influence you in the direction of his orher leanings?
If you have never slept with a person of the same sex, is it just possible that all you need is a good gay lover? Why do you insist on flaunting your heterosexuality... Do you consider it safe to expose children to heterosexual teachers? Why are there so few stable relationships among heterosexuals? How can you become a whole person if you limit yourself to compulsive, exclusive heterosexuality?

The two pick at their dinner salads, staring down at the leafy mound before them. Finally, one of them tries to grease the wheels of conversation. The process begins by providing lots of space for the full expression of information and asking follow-up questions to further draw out the one talking.
Think of conversation as a tennis match in which the players lob the ball back and forth. They ask personal or sensitive questions that put the other person on the defensive. If feeling inhibited is a problem for some people, others go to the opposite extreme: they use a date as an opportunity to purge and vent.
This is particularly an issue for heterosexual men as heterosexual women get approximately six times more contacts than do men.
Within the group expecting to test the online dating service, participants were randomly assigned to one of three conditions: do not meet date, meet date online in one week, or meet date in person in one week. Our results indicated that men who expected to meet their date online said they were more agreeable, emotionally stable, and attractive (even when we controlled for this with coders' ratings of attractiveness based on photographs of the participants) than they were at time 1.
The respondents to the questionnaire were asked to send their current or favorite SM fantasy along with the completed questionnaire.
They were told that they could make the fantasy as long and as short as they wished, and to indicate how close they had come to acting it out.
Some of the questions in the follow-up questionnaire were the same for all the respondents to answer, while other questions were tailored to the person it was sent to, based on their answers to the initial questionnaire.
While the mostly "open-ended" questions asked in the follow-up questionnaire do not quantify easily for use in a statistical analysis, they were nevertheless invaluable to the research: This material shows the broad range of sexual interests incorporated within the term "sadomasochism"; they raised questions that led to new areas of investigation, such as issues of control in SM fantasies and behavior; and they helped explain and expand upon the results of the statistical analysis of the first questionnaire.
