Dating relies on two people having the ability to communicate with each other. Wants and needs are important items to communicate, but there are other subjects. Because dating is about getting to know someone, being able to share information about background will matter greatly to both parties. Telling someone about childhood, schooling and career gives them insight into a person's basic thinking. Sharing information about future hopes and dreams is another way to share.
There are some people that do not understand dating and relationships require give and take. In their mind, it is all about them. They tell the other person their entire life history without once asking any personal questions of their date. After the date is over, they will rarely get a second chance unless they learn how to let the other person talk. Once they learn to share the conversation, they will be on their way to better interaction with their dates.
