POLL: Take a hint...

Wednesday, April 27, 2011 - 12:00 AM

A reader writes... I recently reconnected with a friend from middle school and hung out with him on two separate occasions. I enjoyed the time we spent together, but he seems to have gotten the wrong idea. He has asked me out four times in a row. I told him I had other plans, but he just won't take a hint. I'm far too awkward and polite to tell him flat-out I don't like him, but I want to remain friends with him. How should I send get him to take a hint?
POLL: How can she get him to take a hint?
3% (24) Keep trying. He'll get it sooner or later.
72% (580) You need to be firm with him. Give him that "you're like a brother to me" jumk.
0% (7) Ignore the problem. He'll move on to something else.
23% (186) You're not going to be able to salvage the friendship. Cut it off now.

POLL: Truth and consequences

FREE Bree DVD + 50% Off A reader writes... Q: My husband and I recently met two couples while on our honeymoon. One couple had been married for 20 years. The other was thinking about getting married. The second couple asked for advice. Our advice was one question: Can you be completely honest with each other about everything? Sex? Money? Feelings, etc.? If the answer is “no,” we said, “don’t get married.” The longtime-married couple said we were crazy: “No one is that honest.” The husband’s advice was to always agree with the wife, and when she is mad buy her something. The wife’s advice was to keep all your secrets, you may need to use them later. Am I wrong to believe that all couples can have a happy marriage by always being honest?
POLL: Honesty is the most important thing in a marriage...
39% (673) Yes. Undoubtedly
6% (103) Nope. That would be sex.
48% (826) Nope. It's important, but not the Most Important.
5% (95) Actually, the ability to lie (and not get caught)... THAT'S the most important thing...
