Do you answer the questions on CM with sincerity?

Do you find some of the answers to be full of realistic feelings or do you think that you're getting the fluff answer that they think you want to hear? I know some of my answers seem more moral based than how I really may feel. Darn those human emotions!

  • always.

    But, i find my mood can affect my answers. I have re-read some of my previous answers before & thought "wow, i must have been super bummed that day, that answer was so pessimistic"

  • I answer sincerely. I feel some answers and even some questions are based on touting their own morality or political agenda. I think many moms have real problems and DESERVE real answers and its a disservice to answer insincerely.

  • Always

  • There's no reason to lie. No one on here knows you or can harm you if they don't like your answer. If anything, I'm more honest on here than I am anywhere else in life.

  • Of course. It might not always be what they want to hear though.

  • yes, although i think some people are in a bad mood or something because sometimes it seems as if they are out for blood!

  • I'm brutally honest. I don't mean to hurt anyone, and if they take it that way then I feel they shouldn't post the question, if they don't want real honesty.....

  • I answer with sincerity & honesty. I refuse to simply tell someone what they WANT to hear when that is not the correct answer. I've had askers get mad at me for not saying what they want to hear. But, it doesn't bother me.
