  • I am pretty blunt and I am not rude. I am honest and happy to be the one who is so. My bff is a sweetie and never can tell any one how she feels. Except me I guess I am lucky that way. Same with my hubby he is sweet and sugar coats everything, except with me. Dang it. Both people can complain about everything to me but be nice to everyone else.
    That is really okay if I have had enough I say stop! Your making me crazy. LOL, but honesty is the best policy then you don't have to remember you lies.

  • Blunt

  • Somewhere in between. I think those that say mean and hurtful things ALL of the time and defend themselves by saying "I'm just telling the truth" as if they are some saint, are a-holes... the 'hard' truth is necessary sometimes but certainly not all the time.

  • Blunt, you can be honest and not hurt someones feeling. Sometimes people need the truth, not something that is sugar coated.

  • Somewhere in between, but knows when to be blunt and when to sugar coat, and I already have those. I love my friends. I don't know how to be friends when i can't be honest with them.

  • Blunt. The truth hurts but a lie hurts worse.

  • I have 3 friend who are extremely blunt and I love them to death. Im blunt as well which is why we are probably friends. But sometimes the truth hurts. I know my friends will tell the truth and be honest about it. I would rather have that than have someone sugarcoat something trying to spare my feelings. Most of the times when they do that the truth ends up coming out anyway and your feelings are still hurt.

  • Somewhere in between would be great but if I was forced to choose I would go with blunt. I would rather someone be honest with me, even if it stings a little. I like to know where I stand, you know?
