Most Helpful Girl
Well, as from what I've learned over the years, I think when most men try to be honest, they are pretty much brutal. There's a way to be respectful, thoughtful, and easy when expressing this honesty. Like instead of a guy saying, "Yes it does make you look fat, you cow", you could say instead "The way the dress fits, it doesn't flatter your figure good". Something simpler and that won't cause hurt feelings. Basically, be honest, but express that honesty in a way that doesn't cause any hurt feelings, if it's negative honesty.
