The question, “what’s your story?” is just about the most awful question you can ask when you meet someone. Please wipe this phrase from your memory.
“What’s your story?” is really a non-question. It is a way of saying, “I have no idea what to say or ask you, so why don’t I put all the pressure on you to say something interesting?”
Whenever someone asks me what my story is, I usually ask them, “what do you really want to know?” I never know how to answer this question ,and I imagine most people don’t, man or woman.
You can do better. Easily. Spend 2 or 3 seconds thinking about what you really want to know, and ask that.
That said, I went ahead and wrote “my story”. I updated the about me page on this site. I wrote about how I got to be where I am now. It is a great story, if I say so myself, even if I did leave out the Sex, Drugs and Rock ‘N Roll. You’ll have to catch me at a bar and hear that part over a beer. Go ahead and read it and let me know what you think.
