Would you give him dating advice that tailors rules of thumb and principles that cater towards protecting his best interests?
Note: as his mother, to what degree, if any, would you warn your son about the dangers or negative aspects of the girls or women he may encounter in dating? Would you be honest? Would you be semi-honest in the fear that he may judge you as a woman? Or would you paint women in a false light out of either complete fear that your own son might judge you, or in order to try and shelter him and instill in him ideals he should strive to seek and find the the opposite gender?

Yes, there will always be some interest that overlap. Yes, in a perfect or idea world, everyone's interest would perfectly overlap.
Now, in the real world, male and female interests do not overlap. From paying for dates, all the way to issues regarding sex, interests are at odds. What is great for one sex is not so great for the other. So, with that in mind, try not to waste time or space by giving a weasel or fluffy answer.

I'd give him advise that caters to his best interests. It is in his best interest to pick decent girls, and avoid playing around too much. however it is also good for boys who are curious to experiment especially before marriage to get that stuff out of their system. I would advise him to try to be a good boyfriend but to also watch for signs that he may not be with a decent girl. AFTER ALL. most of society protects women, it's not only women that need protection and guidance. Men do too. Therefore Men need to be taught how to care for themselves and how to avoid strange women just as women are taught to do the same when picking boys.1
