I’m a godfather to my best friends three year old son. I was babysitting for them on the weekend to give them a break and bumped into this gorgeous girl who i subsequently asked out on a date. The problem is that she thinks my god son is mine, and I was too flattered that she was interested in me to tell her otherwise. What should I do?

Caroline says

“Tell the truth before you go out with her. If she catches you lying later on, your chances are blown anyway. Best to be honest upfront. The lies like that always come out so save yourself looking like an asshole and fess up now.”

Dan says

“Front up about it and be honest with her. It’s all in the delivery and if you’re intention was never to mislead her but rather that you were so awe struck that you got tongue tied, If she’s someone worth pursuing she’ll understand.”
