Tell the truth or hide your real feelings???

Would you tell the truth and risk the person being mad at your for beng honest to you and them OR would you hide what you really felt to avoid hurting their feelings?

The question can range from "does this look nice on me?" to something that is a littel more life changing. I personally will say the truth. I don't really sugar coat things...sometimes I will but 80% I'm to the point. The honest truth protects you more than a lie. I get accused of being blunt but somebody has to be honest...God gave me that card so I have to use it. (I'm never doing it to be mean)

  • Funny this question is up here, I told the truth because I couldn't live with the lie any longer.

  • I would rather tell the truth about my feelings 100% of the time and I've been working towards that lately, BUT that doesn't always work and it's always acceptable. Some things are political and you just have to grin and bare the problems you are having to save your job or something else important....I DO NOT think you should EVER hide your real feelings in any relationship (marriage, friendship).
