3. “My best friend’s boyfriend just broke up with her, so we’re gonna go out for a low-key dinner to cheer her up.”

4. “I don’t know… lay on the beach, go sightseeing. What else would we do on spring break?”

5. “I met him on a Christian dating website. He really is a sweet guy.”

6. “I’m going to visit cousin Joey at his college for the weekend. He’s giving me a tour of the campus…”

7. “…but don’t worry, I’m staying with my friend because I know you don’t trust Joey very much.”
