She disagreed, saying telling your partner the truth was always the best option, no matter how hard it hurts.
“Telling the truth is never easy, but the truth has incredible power and is a necessary component for a fulfilling life,” she said.
“It’s not only beneficial for the person who’s telling the truth but also for the person who’s told the truth. I strongly advice people to always be honest.”
Daily Sun asked SunReaders if they always told their side-chicks the truth.
- Nana le Freve said she’d rather know the truth and be hurt than fool herself.
“I prefer to be told so that I make a decision for myself and not find out after giving away my heart,” she said.
- Nkateko Manazi said the only way to tell the truth was by twisting it a little bit.
“The only way to tell the truth is to say ‘I wish I should have met you before’, followed by asking her if she’s happily married. Then we will decide from there and trust me, it always gets hotter,” he said.
