Would You Tell a Friend If You Thought She Was Making a Bad Decision?

Audrina moved out of the house she shared with Lauren and Lo last night on The Hills, and while her move should have been an exciting moment for her, it seemed a bit tainted with the looming decision of whether or not Justin Bobby was moving in with her. She seemed to have jumped the gun a bit and while her friends were obviously worried about her intentions and expectations with the move, only one of them spoke up! Sure, it's her life and the decision was already made, but ladies, tell me, if you thought your friend was making a bad decision, would you tell her?

I always try to be a good friend which sometimes entails this, but in the end they have to live and learn.

I'm very open about my opinions with my friends. Especially if I know a dumb decision is going to have a huge effect on their lives.

I know a lot of my friends have made the wrong choice and I definitely tell them if I think they're doing it again. I just try to get them to see it from my point of view and I only tell them once. I do it respectfully and out of care. I know that I appreciate my friends' opinions on things and then I tell them my choices and they do the same for me.

Only if they asks for my input. Otherwise it's not my decision/mistake to make.

I would voice my opinion if I thought it was a truly bad decision however I would still be there for her. Just because you may disagree, you shouldn't ignore them.

I appreciate honest opinions from my friends, even if I disagree with them, and I try to provide those for others. Recently my roommate told me she thought it was a bad idea to date the guy I was seeing, and I told her respected her decision...but then she told me if I got hurt don't come crying to her because she would say "i told you so." Ouch. Its more important to be a supportive friend than to always voice your own opinions. Good friends will try to stop you, but always be there.

Yes, like some posters above, and I consider that being a good friend. Giving your honest view, but still respect your friend for whatever she decides, is part of being a true friend. I just did this several months ago; a friend of mine got engaged to a guy I am not sure treats her that well; degrading comments, calling her ugly, almost-cheating, randomly breaking up and then asking her back (several times)...so when she told me about her engagement, I told her 'It's your decision, but from what you've told me, are you sure this guy is right for you? I will respect whatever you decide but your happiness is important to me, so I want to give you candid feedback.' She hung up, didn't talk to me for months, but now we are back in touch and I think she has cooled down. I am not sure where her engagement stands, but it's her decision and although I hope she ditches him, I'll let it be and continue to be friends. My approach may be a little candid for some, but I feel it's 'the right thing to do'.

My friends and I want the best for each other, so if one of us feels strongly about a decision one of us is making or the path we are taking, we have been known to sit the person down and express ourselves..in a respectful manner of course. I do feel like it is our duty as each other's friends to provide that insight we dont see sometimes being inside a situation. We always support each other tho, so whatever the person ultimately decides has our respect and we stand by each other!

Only if she asks for my opinion. If not, I keep it to myself.

yes! i am always that friend...my friends hate it sometimes because i tell them what they don't want to hear. but honesty is part of friendship and i think the best friends tell you what you NEED to hear not necessarily waht you WANT to hear.

depends on what the decision is, who the friend is, and if its really my place to say anything other than to support her in what ever choice is made... but I think this all depends on the issue

I might ask her if she was sure about her decision and thats all. She obviously has her mind made up and telling her that you think shes making a bad choice probably wont do anything except add tension to the friendship. Ive learned from experience that women very seldom actually listen to other womens advise and usually end up doing what they want, anyway.
