    Don't Beat Around the Bush

    I prefer people who just speak their mind. I'm not one to guess what people are trying to say and will keep asking questions until I think I've completely understood what is said. I like a person to just tell me what they want to say. A person who is straight forward just...

    Just Tell Me Already!

    Some people just wont be honest, and wont tell me what they're thinking. I rather people just tell me how they feel, be as completely honest with me as possible. That's something I truly admire.

    There's Something to Be Said For Straight Forward

    While I'm pretty comfortable with convoluted thinking, I like straight forward too. To the point, grounded, realistic.

    Gently

      I have no prob with anybody telling me something straight forward-BUT- i like it when it's done in a respectful manner. I hate people who are point blank with no reguard to the person's feelings.

    Just Come Right Out and Scare My Wits

     Of course, that's not what I want but what happens sometimes.  I like to be honest but not, "Does this make my butt look fat" kind of honest.  But, I've found that religion and politics brings out the worst in conversations.  So, usually I stand...

    Know Your Role

    I appreciate when people are straight-forward, but there is a big difference between "straight-forward" and "rude". Saying what you mean and meaning what you say is one thing, but tone, pitch, choice of words, and general respect level factor in immensely. Be polite while you're...

    If you have a problem, and you need help, just freakin' ask.  No, it's not easy.  Yes, admitting that you are having a difficult time right now may be awkward.  But being honest with yourself and your situation will get you much farther than being in denial.If you're waiting...

    I Can Take It

    I always tell it like it is, which can be misconstrued in the Southern Belle, social grace laden society with which I am surrounded. But I believe in honesty, and expect the same from other people. And when dealing with less than positive subjects, it hurts everyone's feelings...

    I Appreciate Honesty

    Most people are too worried about softening the blow. If something is wrong, I want to know right away so I can fix it. And if I can't fix it I'd at least like to discuss it. Sucks too many people don't care enough to actually face issues and be forward about their feelings.

    Sugar Coated

    I like being blunt and to the point - being honest with how I feel and how I see things and I enjoy the reality of it all. There is too much of a tact and diplomacy thing with society. Too many people beat around the bush and I'm not into guessing games. Being straight to the...

    I'm Straight Forward!

    My boyfriend is a non-straight forward person and it just annoys me when he has to keep beating around an answer or a question. Even if it's simple yes or no! That's why I only hang with bold, straight forward people because I don't have to beat an answer out of them.
