Be Honest When You Need to Be

     Sometimes you have to bite the bullet and be honest with your partner about things that might be hurtful to them.  If your partner is a really bad dancer, like Elaine from the Seinfeld show, in the above clip, you owe it to them to let them know.  Allowing them to make a fool of themselves will only make it harder later - unless your partner is okay with being the fool.  In the case above, Elaine thinks she is a great dancer and if someone would have told her even though it might have stung a little it, would have helped her avoid being made fun of later by her co-workers.

      This type of honesty is hard to bring to a relationship because you don't want to hurt the feelings of the person you love so much.  However, it would be better for them to hear it from you than to become the butt of all the jokes later.   It is better to hurt their feelings a little now, than have their feelings smashed later.  Heck it might even lead to the two of you taking dance lessons together - without the kicks and the thumbs :)
