'What does that say about how he feels about my age? It's just unacceptable.' Marital status: It goes without saying that if a married man claims he's single, it's a deal-breaker, but what about a man who claims he's divorced when he's actually only separated?

In fact 44% of Americans said it was a deal breaker for them so be careful; you don’t want to spoil a good date by being too keen post date.
