#068 Be forthright, but positive.

Let's take for granted you are past the first stage of dating. You have been honest about your age and weight, that is to say your pics are actually of you and taken in the last decade. Now you move on to the next stage. Your new partner loves the ballet, so you go along. You try to be a good sport, but you are a MMA/PBR kind of guy. One day she asks if you like the ballet too. Granted this isn’t, “Does this make my butt look big?”, but it does bring up an important point. Except for the butt thing, it is important to be honest, but in a positive way. Try, “Baby the ballet is really not my thing, but being with you is”. Who knows, she may cut you some slack, take a girlfriend next time, and in the long run appreciate your honesty.
