My best friend Nick (22M), his gf Marta (22), and I (21M) were hanging out in his basement. She asked him unprompted, “Babe, do you think I’m fat?” Nick, being the dutiful boyfriend, responded “Of course not babe.” She then turned to me and asked, “OP, do you think I’m fat?”
Now here’s the thing. I strive to be a very candid person. I will not hesitate to speak my truth because I believe it is almost always better to be frank with people than to tiptoe around what you actually feel.
In my experience, avoiding the truth often leads to confusion and/or pain. Of course I don’t wanna be an asshole so if I’m going to say something that I think could be taken poorly I try to be as nice as possible while also remaining candid.
