Have you ever pretended to like something to impress a potential mate?I haven't. I don't lie well. Plus I either have a passion for something or I don't. I am not that good of an actor. How about you?

Nope not me..don't have the patience for playing games or wasting time on them. There are things I tolerate for my partner..I'll hang with him while he does certain things, like watch operation repo or pinks but I am only present and reading or on the computer, not feigning interest.

You are better than I. If a guy I'm with wanted to watch basketball, I wouldn't remain in the same room.And with the basketball going on at the same time of hockey, we wouldn't see each other until late spring , early summer!

Not better than you, I owe him that much..he always gives in for my hockey..always, and not because he is as crazy about it as I am, but because it means that much to me.

Fantastic! I could never Ever sit and watch something I am not into. That's why I'm a better girlfriend than a wife.As a girlfriend I can easier say, go see the game, I'll see you when the season is over!

I did this when I was young. Really young. I had some friends and we'd see a girl we like, and we always pretended to be interested with what they're doing. Or say that we like the same things. I don't know if that's just how boys learn and that was a natural thing; or I was just not genetically gifted enough to have girls interested in me, that we(I mean, I) had to resort to this. Now, I think I've learned enough.

It must be hard to find an ice breaker for a guy to use. But I think pretending to like something you may not even like is a bad idea. if seems like you will Have to pretend All the time you are with the woman.

When I was younger, I tried to keep an open mind about stuff a friend -- particularly a boyfriend -- might suggest, but I have found that it's pointless. You may discover some things you like once you've tried them, but there's no point in faking it, whether it's some food he's wild about and you dislike (I detest hot wings) or something he'd rather not do that you enjoy daily (you may have to jog alone whether you're with him or not, for instance). Falsehood is the best way to poison a relationship, whether it's the annoying "little" things or something obviously important.

I am a picky eater nd stubborn to boot so it wouldn't matter how many " just try it" he would say, the answer is no!.as for jogging? I wouldn't go jogging but I would wait with the water bottle.

I don't think I would flat out lie, but something I am ambiguous about, I might pretend to like a little more, if I knew that it was important to them, like bowling. If it was something I really didn't like, then of course I would be up front about that, and supportive if it was something that they liked to do (again, like going bowling even if I hate it, just making it clear ahead of time that its not really my thing).

Live is too short to pretend I like bowling or basketball when I hate both! I would tell them I hate basketball and hope it isn't a deal breaker . but if it is, then we don't belong together. As for bowling , the last time i went bowling I vowed was The Last time I would go bowling!

I always show my real self and not the pretend one coz I might lure in wrong potential mate as well. Anyway, I haven't pretended to be somebody else since the beginning, thinking that it would be hard to keep up with it.

Never. Wouldn't want to anyway. That would be so not me, so unreal. If I want someone to be impressed by me, it should be something that I do or have in me naturally. I wouldn't want to force myself to do the things I don't normally do just to impress a guy.
