We always hear that honesty is the best policy. I even heard a well-known actor state, “Always tell the truth and you’ll never have to tell a lie.” Being entirely too frank may not be wise on your date.

Dating expert Louanne Ward feels you should not be 'too honest' on a first date. People do not need to know if you snore, talk to your mother, or know your body count. 'We have all been taught that honesty is the best policy, but there is a difference between being honest and oversharing, and every date is a screening exercise for both parties. Every question you answer and every bit of information you give is data collected by your date to find your date-ability score.'

Louanne explained, 'The only way you are going to get a second date is to have a high date-ability score and you will not get that by sharing useless information.'

Ward offered some advice on what to say and what not to say on a first date:
· Do not share how many dates you have been on.
· Keep your mouth closed and let the other person do the talking so you can gather the information.
· Reveal private information on a need-to-know basis.
· Not every date needs to know the ins and outs of your life.
