Your mom wasn't kidding when she said, “Be true to who you are.” No woman ever appreciates when a man is faker than a girl in high school—she's dealt with that type before, and she doesn't need to deal with it again. A grown woman has moved past the lies and the schemes; she's looking for something genuine. Just like you should never order spaghetti on a first date if you're wearing white, you should never try and be someone who you aren’t (or lie about what you do…because she'll see through it). Remember, no one likes marinara sauce on his or her shirt. Ever.
