    i have no title

    Advertisements
    i can't think of a title short enough.

    would you rather have someone tell you the truth and you be offended or have them lie to keep the peace?

    i'm not talking re: spousal infidelities, etc. like in a debate, conversation, etc. like the "fat people" debate. granted, nobody was really asked their opinions, but it was a thread and obviously it was going to be discussed. so tell me.

    do you prefer the truth no matter what, or "white lies" so as not to offend?

    I think you can ALWAYS tell the truth if you learn tact. there is a polite way to say almost anything. Yes I'd always rather hear the truth but I would NOT however like to hear it from someone who prides themselves on being "blunt" and just says it. I would rather it be told to me with tact. If that makes any sense..LOL

    I think that the truth is necessary in some situations...like if I ask...but please don't come up to me and offer your opinion without being asked...but yes if I say does my butt look big in these pants..PLEASE TELL ME

    Well that's true too. There are some things that no matter how nice you spruce it up still comes out like a pile of dog crap..ROFL
    I still would rather someone was honest with me. But I dunno I'm trying to think of instances where I'd rather just be lied to and I'm coming up blank but I'm sure they are there.

    well i can think of one, this was kinda sparked by the Kelis / N-word thread. like, i say that word every once in a while (but never in a derogatory manner). i'm sure there are a few people on here who'd rather not hear that and feel like there's NOT a non-derogatory way to say it, but it's the truth. or the way some people feel about mormons, catholics, muslims, christans, scientologist, wiccans, etc. know what i mean?

    I guess the truth. I would rather receive a compliment and know it was genuine than wonder, based on the fact I never hear someone tell me that outfit sucks, etc.

    I prefer the truth, however, you have to keep in mind when telling the truth, that is YOUR version of the truth. You know?

    I'm not sure how to answer. Basically, it takes very little these days to offend someone. I don't know WHY people are becomming so dang sensitive about every.little.thing. but they are. Because there is no way of knowing what might offend, you might as well tell the truth, despite what it might do to their feelings. Granted you can tell the truth without being downright nasty about it, but I think generally, people deserve honesty.
