Tanya’s Midweek Crisis Letter- Should I Tell My Friend I Don’t Like Her New Boyfriend?
This is what this week’s letter writer has to say:
“My friend has been dating a new guy, and the other night she wanted me to meet him for the first time. I didn’t like him at all. He was cheesy . . . full of himself . . . and he flirted with the waitress in front of us. He’s nice to my friend, but I don’t think he’s right for her. She really wants to talk to me and get my opinion on him.
Should I lie and tell my friend I like her boyfriend? Or should I tell her the truth?”
If she’s your friend then you should be honest if she asks for your opinion. I wouldn’t offer up your opinion, but if she asks, be honest but tactful. I would start out saying he seems to treat you very nicely which is good but honestly I thought it was very rude and inappropriate that he flirted with the waitress. And say I’m not sure he’s the right one for you but I like seeing you happy and I support your choice. Then see what she says.
