This reminds me of boy/girl situations when you ask a question like “Have you ever cheated on anyone?” and get the answer: “I’m a nice guy, why would you ask that?” or “That has nothing to do with what we were talking about.” If you get more than 5 seconds of silence to a tough question + either subject change or random statement about character, watch out!
