If you see someone and they ask you if they are something derogatory (fat/ugly/stupid/mean/etc.) and you know they are and you must answer do you think it is better in the long run that you lie about it or that you tell the truth about it?

My answer depends on how close I am with the person, how sensitive that person is, and what they ask about.
I had a friend who constantly asked if she was ugly. She was, very much so, but I lied and told her she looks just fine.
I had another friend who constantly asked if she was fat, and she was, but I had a more honest friendship with her, so I told her she was fat and she appreciated my honesty.0

The way I do it is I will say "Oh you're not fat, but you could hit the gym more often". or something along the line.
More often than not, the person that ask those question already know the answer, and are just looking for confirmation. I don't want to confirm that for them, so yes, I will lie. White lie.
I know it bad to lie, but hey, some lie are totally #worth
