Quote from American sitcom 《Friends》"well at least I didn't let some guy into the forest of my righteous truth on the first date."
how to understand this sentence,thanks
Well, this is a little bit tricky :)
In that episode, the girls are all reading a book called How to be Your Own Windkeeper.
It's a feminist book about how women should be powerful and protect themselves emotionally from men. And from what we understand from their dialogue, there are analogies in the book such as "inner pool of power", "stealing someone else's wind", "lightning-bearer", etc.
So anyway. "Forest of righteous truth" is also a phrase from this book. We don't exactly know what it means, but it looks like it means opening up yourself, your mind and feelings (symbolized by "letting someone in your forest") too much to someone on the first date, which the book is strong disapproving of.
