"Two female friends talking"

No one likes to be the bearer of bad news to a friend. And we’ve all gone through the anxieties of dating—of not being called back, of not being called at all, of having our date flirt with the bartender…and along the way, we’ve come up with some “explanations” for these events that have made us feel better. Of course, in the end, we learned that we were only fooling ourselves. But when our friend is hurting, sometimes we just want to fool her…I mean comfort her…rather than break the bad news just yet. So we say this:

    My friend just met a black man on Blackwhitemeet.COMit’s where for men and women looking for interracial’ship for a fabulous lifestyle
    It’s a nice place for black white sing’les, to interact with each other…no bounds or extremes in front of true love.

    women need to be more real with each other. that’s one quality i appreciate in men…they’re straightforward and don’t sugarcoat ish.

      Not all men are straight forward. If they were there wouldn’t be the term, cheater. As jeezy said women lie, men lie, numbers don’t lie. That is so trust you have to beware of both sexes.

    I’ve been the type of friend who tells you straight up “you better be careful or this will happen or you better watch out for him because everything you have told me about him shows that he’s going to dog you out” and you know what that got me in the end?…home girl got mad at me because i didn’t feed her the BS she wanted to hear and when he did dog her out she got mad at me…some people want to be lied too…even if you tell them don’t touch the fire because your going to get burned they still want to do it…moral to my story not all friends appreciate honesty, even if its from the ones who care about them….

    Real friends who have your best interest at heart don’t sugar coat it or lie!!

      Thank you! I was going to say the same thing. The truth hurts but it is what it is. The problem is: most women can’t handle it or would turn on the girlfriend.

      Although true friends don’t sugar coat there is such a thing as being tactful. Not sugar coating things doesn’t give anyone permission to be rude.

        You are so right… I used to be an offender of this with my best friend until somebody came to me one day and told me I was being a straight up b*tch with my advice… Then my friend finally comes clean and tells me that’s why she never listened to me cause I sounded like her mom instead of her friend. So now I chill and come a little nicer…

          i agree, but sometimes, theres no other way to say it. I come off as a b*tch sometimes when I give advice, but at the end of the day, its the truth. Sometimes, tact needs to go out the window.

      You know I use to until I realized it ws hurting them more than it was helping them. Sugar coating will just keep them on that love merry go round. If you know better, you do better. Tell it like it is.

      I don’t see how MN monitors the hell out of this site but allows you to post crap like this. This is a classy website & if you want to keep with this ratchetness I suggest you keep it movin to bossip or somewhere else.
