I tell the truth and it sometimes gets me in trouble UGH

There are ways to answer without lying and without causing problems.  If say it is about a new hair cut - just say it looks fine.  What does YOUR opinion really even matter?  I do not like a lot of people's hair style.  MY opinion really doesn't matter.

Mostly I would be vague or not say anything because these days people are just looking for a fight.

I would rather  tell the truth then  lie. Lies can and will trip you up at sometime or other.  You can be gentle with them instead of harsh words.  If I know someone is telling lies about someone else, I would rather not be around them and tell them so.  And  when someone tries to put me in the middle of it. I just back away and don't  hang with them any.

I think it depends on the situation but I would gently tell them the truth as lying is not going to help them in the long run!

I guess it depends who it is and what the lie would be. In general, I try to be honest though.

If someone asked you for your opinion, if you knew it would hurt their feelings, would you lie to them?    Sometimes this could be hard to answer. But sometimes the truth hurts.

Hello!

Yes, I lie sometimes I think we are all guilty of that. Nonetheless telling a lie can be a lot more painful without you even noticing.

I always tell the truth but I ask them first if they really want the truth even though it might hurt them.  If they say they do, then I give it to them.  If they become hurt by what I say I talk it through until they feel better about what was said.

Not sure you can make them feel better.  If they have a new hair cut and they ask you if you like it and you say no it looks stupid - how can you make them feel better?  Tell them well it is my opinion and MY opinion does not matter. lol

I would ask the person if they want to know the truth because it will hurt. I would leave it up to the person to make the decision because sometimes people don't want to hear the truth because they already know it.

I would think that comment would make them mad.  IF I asked for someone's opinion on something and they replied do you really want me to tell you the truth because the truth is going to hurt I would be ticked off.

And no, they don't already "know" the truth.  If someone is asking hey does my hair look okay and you think it doesn't do you really need to insult them or put them down?  OR say do you really want me to answer that because my answer will hurt?  Just say it looks fine and go on.

No, I would tell them the truth it will only hurt a bit and for awhile but then it depends on the person on how long it takes.

As most people in this thread pointed out, it really depends on the situation, the person, etc. However, for the most part, I would lean towards truth-telling.

Truth, if it hurts, work through the pain together.

I would gently try to tell them the truth.  Especially if they are asking my opinion.  If they don't ask, I don't say anything. :-X
