Do you want someone to tell it like it is or do you want them to put a little butter on it?

I can trust someone who comes out and tells me like it is before I want a little butter on it.

 I don't sugarcoat anything...so, when I want opinions or answers, I don't want the sugarcoated version.  I want the straight up truth.

I'm an autistic adult, and social crap like that never makes any sense to me. I have no ability to read between the lines, and very little ability to read body language. I pretty much have to take everything absolutely literally. I really hate it when people don't say what they mean. I have to take it at face value or spend forever guessing, and it always causes problems later when the person is all, "I thought you knew," or "I thought it was obvious!"

 Say what you mean and mean what you say.

I like blunt honesty. It's just easier than long drawn out conversations where you beat around the bush.

I want the truth.  Ideally you would find a way to tell me the truth without being catty rude mean bitchy crude loud demeaning or judgemental.  I'm okay with sarcasm.  I don't need things sugar coated.

I want the truth but I don't want the mean truth.  There IS a difference.  It's fine to be truthful but to say it flat out in a mean way is just cruel.  I am very sensitive
