Why don’t they ask better questions like;Page 1 of 1    
Because if they asked more questions like the examples you've given, there would be a whole lot more "prefer not to say" answers. And then more people would come here on the forums asking what the meaning of "prefer not to say" is.

By "THEY"I assume you mean P.O.F. ,in the profile setup.
They DO provide YOU with a place on your profile to ask all those questions.
So do that.

Here's the thing, asking (and answering) questions only gives you information which doesn't necessarily help you get to know someone. It helps you know ABOUT them, and some things may be implied, but it's more about spending time with someone and observing than just rattling off questions.
It's not that asking and answering questions has no value whatsoever but IMO it is of lesser value than getting to know someone and having actual conversation. I prefer conversation myself and I can extrapolate more about a person's character and personality from conversation than asking 100 questions. Then again, maybe it's just me.........

It IS me that I get impatient with the endless questions, don't know about anyone else but that gets boring REAL fast. Besides conversation is much more informative and illuminating.

How often do you floss?
How often do you cut your toe nails? If at all.
Asking something like do you have a car is ridiculous. Why don’t they ask can you drive it? Or do you have a valid driver’s licence. For all I know you live in your car.
Do you pay your bills on time? If you have any.
Or how about how long have you been working at the same job? Asking what your profession is makes no sense at all if you can keep a job for more than a week.
Have to been to rehab? How many times?
How do you like your eggs?


How do you like your eggs?

quiet and alone...

Because 50% of the populous is of below average intelligence.


Actually, 50% of the population is below median intelligence.
