Have you ever dated someone who was brutally honest? I am referring to a person who spoke with very little tact, virtually no filter, and the concept of “sugarcoating” their conversation to make it less bitter was impossible for them. I can see how this would be problematic in a relationship. I believe that relationships can only handle so much honesty.
There are some things that require special handling and any honesty would require a little finesse. Men aren’t always good at that because they want to be able to say what is on their mind..minus all the emotional reactions from their women.
Can women handle the truth about their man or relationships? Well, it depends. It’s more complicated then that. We don’t like being lied to but we definitely don’t like insensitive statements from the person we love. Yes, this makes men miserable because it is a catch-22, but the man that knows how to provide honesty and love at the same time is a keeper in our book!
DO you think there is such a thing as too much honesty in a relationship? Are there certain things that you would be totally fine not knowing or hearing the honest truth about?
Does honesty hold a relationship together or are there things that are better left unsaid?
If you are in a relationship, do you have full disclosure of everything? Does it work for you?
