Yeah.. always always tell the truth no matter how brutal...
Personally, I always tell the truth even, when I'm lying

I'm quite amused by how many women 'claim' they want honesty, then say they aren't interested in a relationship, but only in dating. Meaning: they like to have someone else pay for their dinner, concert or movie tickets, etc, while they give nothing in return! As f0r "money" NOT being the major factor - HA!!!!! NOTE how many women insist the guy must have a photo in 'his' profile, while 'they' refuse to provide same (using all manner of excuses!) ! NOTE too, how the words "generous" and "financially secure" almost always appear together, usually within the first 1 - 3 sentences describing what they are looking for !

Omission is not a lie, if I don't get asked about my past relationships and I chose not to speak of it, then how can I be lying?

Or If I chose to say, my last relationship was bad/good/ok/not compatible without giving details on it, then how can I be lying?

That being said, honesty is important, but putting everything on the plate right from the start kinda defeats the purpose of discovering one another which is a fun part of dating.

Look at my profile for instance, I'm being honest without giving too much info :)

Of course I'm sure 90% of the women who read my profile stop at a certain line even though I ask that the entire paragraph be read, but I chose to be forwards about it. And at some point there are some who will actually read it all and understand the meaning, rather than just read the first line and roll their eyes. :P
