Honesty may hurt – and really badly – but I still believe it to be the best policy.
Being straight with people makes a world of a difference, I swear.
Yes, it can hurt to be told, ‘Unless you lose a lot of weight, get fit, and stop wearing that strong, fake body spray, we are definitely not having sex.’
But would you rather persist and persist and never understand why a girl seems interested in you, yet nothing ever happens between the two of you?
I feel like you just would end up going insane, and not being able to stand being around her anymore, for lack of understanding the situation.
Whereas, in knowing the truth, her having been straightforward and honest with you, you now have the choice either to do something about it to meet her standards, or you can choose not to pursue them and to let go of your currently vain efforts to have a physical relationship with her – no more wasted effort there, and you can turn your attention and efforts elsewhere for that, and instead focus on a friendship with this girl, in which you both can be satisfied from an open and honest relationship.
Just some thoughts for the night.
P.S. I just learned about testicular torsion…. youch.
