Do you tell your friends what they want to hear?

Or do you tell them the truth, no matter how harsh?

  • I find most of the time I do tell what they want to hear bc most of the time we women just want a sounding board if we want advice we will say " I need some advice". Most of the time we women get offended eaisly, me included though I wish I would loosen up and listen to others opnions more, something I try to work on.

  • Truth. I tell them honestly yet kindly. After all, they are my friends. I don't want to hurt them yet I don't want to make them think I agree with their actions either if I don't.

  • The truth. Anything less is not what a friend would do.

  • No, I wouldn't want a friend like that. My friends tell me the truth even if I don't want to hear it and I do the same.

  • I tell them the truth and if it is too harsh, I apologize for it, but I say it as it is, or as I see it.

  • Some times. I remember once my DIL asked my opinion and when I gave it she got mad. Never gave it again, even when she asked.
