    difference

    "Kathy, I hope this isn't too personal of a question, but are you dating anyone at the moment? "

    "Kathy, I hope this isn't too personal question, but are you dating anyone at the moment? "

    What's the difference in meaning of the above sentences?

    Re: difference

    I think most native speakers would say

    'I hope this question isn't too personal, but ...'

    Also possible is

    'I hope this isn't too personal a question, but ...'

    A better title would have been Too personal (of a) question.
