Mostly As: No one can fault you for going public with your new romantic interest. Since she’s met your inner circle and you’re not going through a messy divorce, we would say you’re in the clear to go public. You two seem to be in a real relationship since you talk about much more than frivolous topics. No nasty tabloid ex-posés here!
Mostly Bs: If you’re in the public eye and have a reputation as a player — well, we can tell you why. You go public too soon, chappy. You really need to get to know someone before you actually get the privilege of flaunting her in public. Right now, the two of you seem to be in the getting-to-know-you stage, so keep things on the down low for the time being.
