Give a first date the benefit of a doubt.
“A lot of women and men have litmus tests on first dates and usually two things happen: one, they aren’t super honest and two, they misinterpret. I went on a date and I asked about faith, meaning being faithful in a relationship, and he answered the question as if I had asked about religion,” explained Allison. “You want to be honest with someone but you want to couch your statements. Don’t make blanket statements, such as: I hate X, or I never would Y, I’d rather die than Z. Since they’re just meeting you, it’s likely that they’re taking you at your word.”
