Do you tell people directly if you don't like them?

I am a firm believer in honesty and straightforward communication. If I have a problem with someone, I let them know, and I expect the same in return.

Do you take the same approach, or do you have another way to go about it?

Please explain.

    Absolutely. I don't have time in my life for people that annoy me. I'm not looking for new friends. If I happen to meet someone that "strikes my fancy," I'll talk to them, but other than that, I really keep to myself, because I don't want to be bothered. Now if I don't like you...I will tell you, because I have even less time and patience for you.

    Up to recently I wouldn't be mean, but I'd let the person know that I don't get on with them. But lately I do everything my best friend says, not even consciously, I just adore her so much I copy her! And she's friends with everyone and moans about them to other people, so now I'm kinda friendly with everyone, even though I don't want to be, but I don't moan about them....I'm trying to change back though...I must be my own person lol

    Unless I really really don't like them then they get it to the face.
    Or they piss me off to the point where I just yell it out.
    But mostly I tell someone else.
    Mainly my bff about peeps we dont like.
    Pretty fun I must say.
    Should uh...
    Try it sometime.
    :]
    We can start with that AlexANDROID betch.

    There's no need to start problems with someone just because I don't get along with them. If I don't like someone I try to repress my feelings and move on. There is no need to dwell unless what that person is doing effect your well being or disrupting your normal life.

    Depending on how the person takes the news when you them you don't like them, problems and confrontation can ensue. I try to avoid all that drama because i have ZERO time for that and ZERO tolerance. Having an argument or rivalry just waste time that I find valuable. I have more important things to do then let someone try to get under my skin.

    Should I unfortunately encounter an individual who does not play well with others, I excersise my rule of 3. Avoid, redirect, confront.

    I am honest with people because I expect them to be honest with me. Lying gets you NO WHERE in life. It is a bad habit to get into. If you sometimes lie, then people never know when you are telling them the truth.

    There have been times in my life where I didn't like someone to start and became friends. My best friend for the past 17 yrs for example! Sometimes a person tries too hard, save your opinions until you know all the facts, and believe me, people are usually better than you 1st experienced.

    depends, if they rili blow my heads off i will tell them..
    but i will not tell them in a rili rude way..
    i will start of by saying ," well u know, sometimes you are so.."
    because sometimes they will somehow evaluate themselves..
    but if you start yelling at them, not just you will make more enemies..
    they sometimes even start to be more annoying to you..

    If i dont like someone i wouldnt want to start anything between us by saying i dont like them. I act friendly and nice towards them but on the inside im praying that i have an excuse to leave. I'm also a shy person so i can use that as an excuse of why i dont talk to them much.

    I also believe in honesty and straghtforward communication, but for me, it just depends on who I'm having problems with and the mood I'm in that day. Sometimes I tell them and sometimes I don't.

    I don't think we live in that honest of a world....how many times have you seen your friends actually say "I dont like you" to someone else.

    There's honest and then theres too honest. If I don't like someone, I just don't hang around them or try and befriend them. Thats honest enough for me. I just hate it when people try and fake it like they are friends with someone...ya know?

    If you decieve people and pretend that you like them, it's bound to come out and end up hurting them even more. I'm not mean about it but I do say when they annoy me and things like that.

    Why keep it to yourself or tell others that's just spreading rumors. Just go directly to them with you issue instead of starting stuff.

    No, that would be bad manners. It really doesn't help anybody, and usually creates more hate and tension. Most of the time I don't like somebody, I have misjudged them or the situation and felt sorry about it. So I try and remember that when I start feeling the urge to be blunt.

    I will discuss problems in a relationship with the person, but that's different than telling someone you don't like them.
