I usually just end up lying by saying that one of my family members still contributes some days (not really) and never tell any date my real earning. I pretend to be poor and frugal (basically tell them I'm kind of broken because I'm paying for my classes) and will continue. Told my recent date about being stressed out and how I had an upcoming exam, in reality I spend more that day when I was out with my best friend and a couple family members.
I don't trust easily (unless it's a very closed member) and that's personal information they shouldn't know. Then they're going to probably want me to contribute much more.

You don't trust easily yet you're being deceptive at the same time. Is this so called date a potential relationship or are you just using them to foot the bill when you go out places? If you have to ask GAG permission for being deceptive you already know inside you feel somewhat guilty about it.

Don't start a relationship (even just a date) by lying. It'll come back to bite you in the a** later and it's not fair to the guy. You don't need to disclose personal information too soon. Just tell him that you aren't comfortable discussing that right now.
