If a mate has BO, do you tell them or continue the date?
I wouldn't tell them. I would continue the date out of courtesy. But I probably wouldn't go out with them again. Because, what if they can't help it?
If someone approached me with BO there never would be a date.
Having said that the only reason to tell someone about this issue would be because you wanted to continue to see them.
However bear in mind there are very few people walking around with a hand raised in the air screaming: "I'm looking for someone to change me!"
The reality is most people are happy with the way (they) are.
Odds are if someone has to change to make a relationship work it's usually a sign that they are with the wrong person.
I suspect if you told this person about their BO they'd take offense to it. Nevertheless if you told them you no longer want to date them and then (they) persisted in knowing why then you could delicately tell them that the soap, cologne, they use or lack of is not agreeable with you at all. If they choose to change it's not because you made a demand. You're simply saying they're not "the one" for you.
Taking this approach of having them (ask) you why will probably garner less resentment than if you suddenly blurted out:
"I can't handle another day of your funky BO!"

Why is the divorce rate so high in America? It usually seas saws every years but always remains at 50% or more. Is divorce the new fad, like having an adopted a foreign child or a owning a tiny dog? I didn't get the memo.

Is it still considered "cheating" in a relationship, if you tell your partner?Some people go out and "cheat" and they tell their spouse/boyfriend/girlfriend, openly they are doing it. Does that make it not cheating if they are not doing it behind their back?
