How Honest Are You?

When a girlfriend has gained weight or is wearing an outfit that she has expressed she loves but is "less than flattering" on her body type, do you tell her or let her feel confident without knowing your opinion?

  • If asked for my opinion, I would be honest. Otherwise, I would let her think what she wants to think.

  • I dont lie and I expect the same from people around me. If I waere a hidious dress and everyone tells me I look beautiful we have a problem.

  • If she asks, I would say it is not my favorite of your outfits, but if she didn't ask I would keep quiet.

  • Unless you suggest a better outfit, let her confidence transcend any unflattering outfit.

  • I would tell her my friend know that I am very blunt so they would expect it from me.

  • If she asked me, I would give her my opinion (gently and with love). If she didn't, I'd keep my opinion to myself. If she feels good about it, then I'm ok with that. There's truth to the saying, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"
