  • I do feel bad, I think honesty is important especially when someone really needs a different point of view to help them see what they may not see because they are in the heat of the situation. It is different when its you that has to make a decision, or can't quite decide what that right decision is. However I also think there is way to be honest without being hurtful and as women I think we really have a responsbility to support and help each other positively and sensitively, rather than trying to make someone else hurt more or possibility feel completely stupid or afraid to ask the questions when they really do need some help.

  • I do feel bad for them. Some people don't always see how obvious an answer is when they post the questions. From the outside looking in, things look much easy to solve than when it is your life and your issues at hand.

  • I give honest answers. Never intentionally hurtful, but honest. If they make the effort to post the question, they deserve to be answered with honesty. Does honesty hurt sometimes? Yes, I'm sure it does. But what is the purpose of just telling someone what they want to hear? No thanks.

  • no, not saying a honest but possible different view, but a slam answer
    like i see people who slam on the woman for just asking the question

  • Yea, I do, but I'm also always honest. Sometimes people need to hear the truth, even if it's painful. However, rudeness is hardly ever necessary.
