People Say I'm Too Honest...

But I don't believe that anything good ever comes from a lie.  If you ask me how your hair looks, I'll tell you.  Even if I don't think the answer will please you.  You asked the question, so I assume you want to hear the answer.  I can't stand dealing with people who tell me what they think I want to hear.  I don't want to hear that everything is fine and the world is great unless it's true.  If you ask me a question, expect an honest answer.

i respect that, i am the same way. everyone is so concerned about their image they dont want anyone to think they could be wrong about something and they lie to make themselves seem like a better person. it ****** me off because those are the ones that take advantage of the ones that actually are good people.

Well, I'd tell him it will be Ok. I don't consider that a lie because I honestly believe it. One way or another, in the end things always turn out ok in the end.<br />

When I do come across situations where I don't feel comfortable telling the truth, I just tell people that they probably don't want to hear the answer to the question. I don't believe there is ever a situation where there is no choice but to lie. And a "polite" lie is still a lie.
