    The word Brutally is telling. It's a negative word. People really don't want to hear "No, those jeans don't make your butt look big, your BIG BUTT makes those jeans look fat"

    It may not seem rude to you, but it must be taken that way or you wouldn't have asked to begin with. Then you ask for no rude responses. I think rude must be one of those actions that are "in the eye of the beholder"  If what you are doing seems to upset people, why do you do it? Do you lose friends over it? You CAN help it. It is a voluntary action.  Some things are better left unsaid.

    I think there is a fine line between being tactfully honest, which is what people are looking for, and being blunt and you apparently seem to cross that line. it doesn't mean you have to sugar coat things...just use a little more compassion in your honesty.

    This is just what I was going to say. It's great to be honest. And to a point it's good but the way you tell the truth is all the difference between being honest and mean. If you say "yeah you look like s$@& in those jeans" your being honest but mean. "you know I think this outfit isn't very flattering but I love these pants on you they make you look so cute" your telling the truth there no sugar coat and you still have a friend that doesn't feel self conscious around you

    How funny you said no rude people yet you said yourself you are brutally honest. That implies you're mean when your honest. Sounds to me that you're just bitchy and use that as an excuse. You don't have to tell everyone every thing you're thinking. Do you get off on hurting people? I bet theyre all younger or smaller.
