  • Yes... My friends and I are brutally honest with each other. If you can't rely on your friends to tell you the truth, who can you rely on?

  • Yes. I am honest with them on what I think of their SO. If I don't like them I will tell them but I won't try and make them leave the person.

  • i actually have told my friend that i dislike her husband. i told her to leave him. it's not without reason though. she complains that he is a drug addicted, cheating,in & out of jail, physically abusive husband, so i tell her what any one with common sense would say to her. she's still with him. I guess she's still expecting him to change. He goes through phases between good husband and terrible husband. The good phases are always short lived. It's not my choice, but if she asks my advice, I'm gonna give it to her without sugarcoating.

  • well I think the general theme here "yup, I make my feeling known!" lol But yes I also agree, maybe use a little tact here and there. But as everyone knows, when u fall in love/lust, u have blinders on and can't see past the sex. I disliked, well a little more then that, but I felt there was something off about him, my bff boyfriend. Then when I saw him get angry with a waitress at this resturant, I knew it then. Did a back ground check and found he was convicted of domestic assault with intent to do great bodily harm. So I am a great beliver in trusting your gut!

  • Yes. I have before and have had a friend tell me she didn't like my husband. Unfortunately, is depends on the reasons why. Sometimes, jealousy blinds a person just as much as love/lust. I make my reasoning is true and I have evidence to back it up. I couldn't stand my BFF's boyfriend(at the time, now her husband). I think he's a great guy now. Some jealousy issues but they've gotten so much better over the years. But he loves her, honestly and truly, and I can see that when they're together.

    Just because you don't like them, doesn't you never will. People can change.
