I asked Instagram men, "What question would you ask a single woman if you could ask anything?" I brought in my best friend and first female guest, Michelle Harman, to help give you your answers.
Will women ever pick up on subtle hints? What are our major turnoffs? How do you get out of the friend zone? What makes a date great? Is there ever a good time to send a dick pic? Would we change men if we could?
That's all here and more.
