Ladies, we’ve all sat patiently outside the change-room waiting for a friend to bounce out excited she’s found the most amazing pair of jeans…
Except, there’s just one little problem – the jeans really don’t look as great as she thinks. What do you do? Do you burst her bubble and say her bum looks really wide or do you put on your best newsreader face and say, ‘WOW you look amazing!’
For the sake of your friendship, you’re more than likely going to go with the second option – but are you really being a good friend?
A survey by PureProfile of 1000 Australian women found that 37 per cent of Australian women admit to lying to a family member or friend when telling them their clothes or outfit was attractive.
Are you part of the statistic? I think (I hope) that I would rather someone tell me the truth, wouldn’t you? Sure I’d be on the trampoline everyday at lunch for the next couple of weeks but I would soon get over-it and respect that person for having the guts to tell the truth.
Mind you all my friends insist I look great in everything
