Oprah's Lifeclass Social Lab Work: Dating Smarter

Use these questions to reflect Oprah's Lifeclass with Greg Behrendt and Amiira Ruotola, authors of It's Just a F***ing Date.

1

What was the best period of your life so far?

2

How did you feel about yourself then?

3

When did things change, and what changed?

4

What can you actively do to get back to that emotional space?

5

Think about your past relationships? Can you identify any patterns? Do you compromise who you are? Do you rush into a relationship?

6

When you're on a date, how often are you thinking about whether the other person likes you (as opposed to whether you like him or her)?

7

What's your definition of a real date? How many real dates have you been on over the past six months?

8

Once you've started seeing someone, when do you typically have sex?

9

If it's before the third date, list five ways you could postpone having sex (things you could say, things you could do instead, etc.) with the person you just started seeing. (If you're not dating now, apply these strategies when you start seeing someone new!)
