Is it ok to lie a little on the first date?

Just about things you don’t really want to bring up
By "not bringing things up", it can be considered lying by omission, but it's not necessarily a bad thing. On first dates, there's plenty of personal information you may not want to bring up. You just met the person and haven't built enough trust to reveal sensitive information. I don't recommend lying as your go-to strategy to avoid talking about this information, instead you could: - Just not bring it up - Change the subject - Smoothly tell them you're not comfortable answering. For example, you could say, "Whoa that's more like a 3rd date question" - Give a playful sarcastic response
