    Really, did you get your feelings hurt by what I said to you? I wasn't trying to do that @ all, I was just trying to be honest with you about it. I mean the last time I looked I had got out the first grade. I was raised in upstate N.Y so one of the big things there is to say what...

    Spit It Out!

    It drives me absolutely insane when someone dances around a subject, without actually ever touching it.  If you have something to say, just spit it out already.  Don't make me try and guess what you're getting at.  Seriously, be a grown up and say what's on your...

    No Bs

    Don't beat around the bush, no sugarcoating, just tell me how it is, good, bad, ugly, I respect people when they tell me what is really on their mind. I have no time deciphering erroneous, nonsensical thoughts of what you may want me to hear, away with that noise.

    expression Please

    I always speak my mind. Never will I gossip, never will I say one thing to a persons face and another behind their back. If I have an opinion it will be expressed. I don`t care if I`m liked, but I do command respect. These are qualities that I admire in myself, and which I look...

    You Do It Behind My Back Anyway!

    Why can't people just tell you to your face what they think? I much rather you hurt my feelings with the truth, than me find out how you feel after you took the time to tell me otherwise. I mean really. I am a grown woman, I will get over it. I have a problem keeping friends...

    Get Ready

    It's funny because it's uncommon to find straight-talkin' people nowadays.  Say exactly what you mean, and don't worry about hurting feelings.  This might be a mistake to put down, but at the moment, I don't care and you can look at the group picture to see my response...

    I appreciate people who say what they mean and mean what they say.  Sometimes it might not be what I want to hear, but I value honesty very much.  I tend to gravitate toward people who don't pull any punches and speak their minds.  So...if my outfit looks bad on...

    Just Say It

    I hate it when people don't defend themselves. If somebody's being an eejit, they should be told. I've seen situations where everybody shuts up and lets the jerk get away eith it when they should stand up and tell him to sit down and shut his mouth.

    Tell Me the Truth

    Or your lies will make you come undone.   Don't fu(k around, don't lie, don't exaggerate, don't hate what you don't know, and don't speak from where the sun DOESN'T shine. Regardless what you believe of yourself - i do not tolerate bullsh*t. You shouldn't either.  ...
