How honest are you with your BF?

That's it really!

I have a very close friend as we discuss everything, but I do hold back when she asks my opinion on her poor relationship. She can see she does no wrong in it and blames her partner for it 100%.

We have been friends for 30 years and I know she's a good friend.

Would you speak your mind, or keep quiet, if you though the truth might hurt, but also might help?

I try to be as honest as possible with my friends, I hope they do the same with me. Sometimes the truth is uncomfortable, but is generally better in the long run smile

ime when I have been completely honest the friendship runs its course. I wish my family and friends had been honest with me when I was married too my ex instead of waiting to tell me everything when we split

Interesting advice!

I would like to be more honest but I think she'd be devastated.

She seems to think it's all his fault.

I think it depends on what you are going to say really. But i certainly wouldn't be agreeing with her on everything.

No- I don't agree with her on everything by any means!

She has nothing good to say about her DH and once started divorce proceedings then took it back, but she expects him to adore her , cherish her, and look after her, but she appears to despise him. I honestly think she just stays for the money- he earns a huge amount and she doesn't need to work, and I have told her that, but she denies it.
