Question: Hello Madam Koverage, Life is all about second chances, and I am so grateful that with faith and prayer, I was able to turn my life around. I didn’t grow up in the best neighborhood, so I had to fend for myself and my siblings and make money anyway possible. I am not proud to say that I used to strip and sell my body for money. Although that was many years ago, it has caused my dating life to be nonexistent. I went to college and also have my masters degree, so I am doing very well for myself except in the dating world. I don’t like to lie, so after a few dates, I make my past known and never hear from the guy again. Should I just keep this info to myself or continue to be truthful when asked about my life and past?
Answer: Wow! I can applaud you for being open to the men that you date. I can understand wanting to share that information with them , so they would not have to find out from someone else. Everyone has a past, and you did not let that define you. You went to college and even got your masters degree so that is something you should be proud of. I personally would wait a few dates for the person to really get to know who you are before telling them. And honestly everyone does not need to know your business. I would only tell those who you could potentially see a future with. But you definitely do not want to wait until you get into a relationship, but use your best judgement to figure out when the best time is to let them know.
