by Keenan Cullen Women are extremely smart in the dating world. That's why you MUST know what these questions are — and the motivations behind them IF you not only want to succeed with women, but also not fall victim to their personal agendas. That's why they have these standard questions they ask men as soon as they get the chance.

Whenever a woman asks you any kind of PERSONAL question, especially when it doesn't seem to fit in the conversation, get a little suspicious about it. She wants to know how much money you make to identify what external benefits she would get by getting together with you. Guys who brag about their jobs or money, though they may think they're impressing a woman, are really making themselves an open target for manipulation.

And she wants to know your dating history to identify what internal benefits she'd experience by getting together with you.

Ignore this single fact, and the dating world will eat you up alive and spit you out broke or heart-broken. External benefits are things like material possessions or opportunities that save women time and effort, which give them feelings ranging from security to luxury.

While internal benefits are things like adventure and challenge, which give them feelings from excitement to pleasure.

Now that you have the understanding required to identify and see the true intentions underneath them, here are the questions themselves... and how do you handle or respond to them so that a woman doesn't see you as a provider, and thus, leverage you in the process?

Because you want to avoid that — at all costs, right? The key to identifying them is to stay alert, with a questioning mind. " Generally, women want to know how much money you make and your dating history because these are the 2 major clues to revealing the benefits you can offer her.

Then women stay with you for the internal benefits you offer them, which not only means it's for who you are as a person — rather than for being a means to an end, like a provider — it's for the relationship itself.

It's personal — not business, like the relationship with a provider.

You need to ask the right questions that can give you an insight into the person’s mind and habits; that’s where the 21 questions game comes into play. This question will reveal a lot about the guy/girl.

The game is made for people like you and me who can’t ask questions directly but are constantly looking for indirect ways. If they say that they will get back in time, it probably means that their past was better than their present.

And just like these two general motives, men also fall into one of two general categories: either providers or lovers.
