People are often faced with the quandary of deciding how honest they should be when responding to some version of the classic “does this outfit make me look fat” question.
This Rule serves as a good filter to help you decide how to respond
telling people what you think
with telling them
what they want to hear.”
That doesn’t mean you should always provide the latter and not rock their/your boat.
Sometimes people really do want to know if the outfit makes them look fat.
The trick is to evaluate the situation in order to decide how to handle it.
