My dad has always given me misinformation about dating and men. Once he told me to never ask a guy " What are you thinking about?" and never make small talk with a man. do you agree or disagree? why or why not?

I can agree about the "What are you thinking about?" Guys tend to categorize things in boxes, but guys have a box that women don't understand it's called the "Nothing box" this is when a woman asks a guy "What are you thinking?" and he says "Nothing." and she goes, "really what are you thinking about?" and he says I told you "Nothing". You see guys have the ability to completely empty their heads of all thoughts, and think of absolutely nothing.
For your second question, guys don't generally like small talk because it accomplishes nothing, doesn't solve a problem, and can get annoying if it's not deep or something a guy is passionate about. Iget it's a form of connection, however it's like sometimes having a mosquito buzzing in your ear.4

Your dad seems to be under the incorrect impression that he speaks for all men...
Most people would find it annoying if the person they're with is constantly making small talk just to fill the silences, but that doesn't mean you can NEVRR make small talk or ask what he's thinking.1
