One of the biggest problems with my first "relationship" was the complete absence of any honesty whatsoever. This has left me with the problem that, regardless of what the news is, I'm always going to prefer brutal honesty over lies or having things swept under the carpet.
The simple fact is I do want to talk about it and I do want to know what's going on.
The problem is, sometimes honesty hurts.
I appreciate knowing, I appreciate the cards on the table, but sometimes I need the time to process things before I can come back with my own true, honest feelings.
