    dating dilemma- please help

    Hi am in my mid-thirties and have finally lined up a gay date with a girl that I think will be a quality person. I lost my mum 8 years ago to cancer. My parents divorced when I was younger, and despite trying a couple of times, couldn’t build a connection with my dad who has a severe mental illness. My sister and mum had a tumultuous relationship and became estranged when I was 16 which meant I also became estranged from her. I have no other family in the country I am living in. I am stable, have a job, a good education and in a good place in my life with good friends. I know how to handle this question in the workplace and meeting new people but what to tell a potential partner that expects honesty?

    Question: What if I get this question on the first date- she asks me about what my family is like/ whether I have any siblings?
    i don’t want to unnecessarily send a red flag.
