Going out on a date (with your spouse or even a first date) may alter what you carry. Will there be cocktails involved? Are you finally giving in and going to a gun-free zone that your Significant Other has always wanted to go? Are you going on a first date?
Having gone through a divorce and reentering the dating world a few years ago, carrying added a level of safety I needed on a number of first dates. (Some people portray themselves much differently over text than they do in person… )
