Boring Dates

In his book on happiness, Dennis Prager has a page on boring dates.

On his radio show Jan. 7, 2010, Dennis said: “I bore easily. One of the reasons I am interesting is that I bore easily. I would bore me if I weren’t interesting. I have the attention-span of a seven-year-old.

“I went on many dates prior to being married and a certain number were boring. I wrote about that. It was classic Prager taking lemons and making lemonade. I started to analyze why do I find this person boring?

“I found there were two things that were universal about boring people. A. They had no passion. Passionless people are not interesting.

“B. Boring people speak about themselves the whole time.

“I never like to talk about myself outside of radio and public speeches… I’m tired of hearing me.”
