Do Tell: Do You Want the Truth?

I have always been one who dishes out and likes to receive tough love. I want the truth and expect my friends to give it to me even when I don't necessarily ask for it. We all know that the truth can hurt sometimes, so ladies, do tell: Would you want your friends and family to be honest with you even if it meant hurting your feelings?

Depends on what it is...if I am in a situation I cannot get out of, and they lie to make me feel better, but we both know they are lying, i consider that a sweet thing to do haha, but if it is involving appearance, or how clothing looks, or a bad decision, I want tough love.

I hate finding out that somebody has lied to me. I would likely not speak to them ever again!

From my loved ones, yes. I always want the brutal, honest truth from friends and fam. Idk, my family are not a bunch of sensitive types, so we fire away and call everyone on their BS, In general, I give it as well, but find most can't take it the way those who know you love each other can.

even if the truth may hurt, when it comes serious matters, i want just that - THE TRUTH. but i don't think i'd really mind if someone lied to me about my outfit being cute or something. hehe.

I like that - respectful honesty. Sometimes if you care about someone you have to tell it like it is and that can really hurt. I have been on the giving end and on the receiving end of the "brutally honest it's gonna hurt your feelings but it needs to be said" truth before. Be honest but choose your words carefully there is no need to be rude. And let the person know you are doing it because you care about them.

i want the truth. i also think there is a distinction between being "cruel to be kind" and being a truthful friend. for example, if i don't like a friend's boyfriend, i will wait until i have something concrete to discuss or she asks me flat out, and then i tell her the WHOLE truth--not only that i don't like him, but that i love her and it's her relationship and i'll support her no matter what. telling the truth doesn't always have to be bad--in fact, the whole truth can be much better!

i'm going to go one further and split hairs . I think that there's: Honesty (which can be sugar coated) Bluntness (no minced words truth) Rudeness (honest but with no consideration for feelings) i think that bluntness can be taken to the rudeness level but not all rudeness is blunt. so yeah, i've been told over and over than i'm blunt but i haven't been told that i'm rude (not much at least!).

No. There's a difference between being truthful and being blunt. Being blunt is telling someone you think they're ugly. Yes, it's the truth, BUT it's hurtful and damaging. Nothing good comes from that. In my book, it's never okay to be blunt (especially among friends and family, who ideally, you're suppose to feel safe with). If someone has some blunt thoughts, I think it's best s/he keep it to themselves. JMHO.

I'm brutally honest, blunt, straight forward and to the point. That's just the way I am. No games here. I expect people to be the same way. Don't Grin F*ck me, just tell me the truth! I do have tact though. I'm not cruel. Just very honest.

I always tell the truth and I expect the same from family and friends. If you don't want an honest answer than don't ask me. There are ways to tell someone without it being horrible.
