Ah. Thank you for putting things like this. Being an ex-military man I generally don't consider my dates to be a potential threat to my life, but I can see how a woman would see things differently.

Being upfront isn't a problem. The issue for me is determining the lady's attitude on carry before I open my mouth.

I told one psycho girl upfront about me carrying, and my reward for it was a threat by her to file a false harassment claim since I didn't call her back "right away". I drove to the police station and showed the desk Sergeant my phone's text message thread of her threatening me to ensure I didn't end up on the wrong end of a false DV or arrest warrant.The LEO called the crazy girl and got things straightened out , but ever since then for understandable reasons i've been very cautious about who I tell regarding my armed status.
