I hate this question because I never know exactly what it is asking (perhaps I am just dumb haha)

If a guy asked you that question what would your answer be?
Serious answers please!

I'm not sure what I'd say, but here's what I did while I was a member of that site. It sure saved me some time!

I saved my answers in word documents for the "essay" questions or would go back to old e-mails, and would copy and paste previous answers into the boxes. I was so tired of answering the same flipping questions every. single. time.

Hmmm...well to be honest the first thing that comes to mind when someone says "personal habits" is cleanliness and hygiene! I'm sure that's not what they mean though. I'm guessing it means the basics about your lifestyle that may or may not be compatible with someone else. Maybe things like:

Introvert or extrovert - liking to go out/party vs. being a homebody
Detail-oriented vs. big picture person
Exercise, diet, fitness, health
Pets and how important they are to you
Hobbies
Religious beliefs
Family/children

Hope that helps.

would be my go to answer. I never dated a guy who didn't open my car door for me. I expect a napkin on a lap at a restaurant, a hat is taken off when you enter a building etc. Old fashioned chivalry is important to me.

Also no smoking or tobacco, no drugs or excessive alcohol. Those things are deal breakers.

I totally agree - treat a lady like a lady!

Yup, got that question before.

I try to think of what I do on a regular basis that might impact a relationship.

Do you exercise frequently?
Need to wind down when coming home?
Talk on the phone to family and friends a lot?
Go on frequent road trips?



Stuff like that. But I agree, it makes me think of hygiene.

I would answer here something about health and fitness. I think it is a round about way of asking if you workout.
