Many may disagree with this one, but I’ve been thrown into the middle of some pretty outrageous situations since I made my vow of celibacy years ago. I’ve been cursed out, called a liar, called a user and so on. I’ve been asked “Yo, why you trying to play me like a sucker?” “What have I done to you?” as well as a host of other comical yet outrageous questions that could have been completely avoided had I disclosed this information early on. Many people seem to take it personal when you tell them the shop is closed, as if it has something to do with them and couldn’t possibly have been a decision you made well before meeting them. This is certainly a bit of information I prefer to lay on the table very early in the game, this way there are no surprises and any sexual expectations of me are dispelled with the quickness. You may run into those who won’t believe you, some may even challenge you on it, and how you handle that is up to you. But, I would say, let them know what they’re is getting themselves into from the start. You’ll save yourself plenty of headaches. If they decide not to stick around after the fact, hey, that’s their loss.
