Do I look fat?

No, that shirt doesn’t make you look fat. Yes, I can tell you’re losing weight. No, there’s nothing goofy-looking about your hair.

Sound familiar?

Today's nightlife column is about how much honesty you expect out of your significant other.

We face a fine line in relationships. On one hand, you want to be your partner’s safe haven from the rest of the world. But on the other hand, you want to help your partner be the best person possible -- which can involve facing some harsh realities.

So what do you do? Most daters navigate these questions with no official game plan, aside from the constant relationship goal of avoiding fights.

After all, pointing out some mustard on your girlfriend’s chin is one thing. Shattering her hopes and dreams is another.

Anyway, I worked pretty hard on the column and I'll feel all warm and fuzzy if you read it. Thanks!
