  • I would tell them. In my opinion honesty is more important for any kind of long term relationship than tact is.

  • nah id tell them. I've done this before. i kind of prefer to deliver and hear a more painful truth than a pretty lie. however, when i admit the truth i do completely consider the feelings of the person I'm talking to and i deliver it as calmly as i can.

  • Depending on what it was, if I knew there was something that would really really hurt them, I would keep it to myself, and knowing I am keeping something painful from them would lessen the guilt significantly though not all of it all the time.

    I would really have to look hard at the situation.

  • Thats hard depending on what it is like if its something I know she/ he needs to know I will tell them even if it will hurt however only if it something that will change their life I don't know its just hard to tell a loved one something that you know will hurt them :/
