Heck I aint shy if my boyfriend stinks I will tell him "you stink!" If he has bad breath I will tell him "your breath stinks" I will even ask him if my breath stinks because I think that is just gross and I would hate to be talking to him if my breath stunk.

Just tell the person directly. In a nice way of course.

I would like to think that I could find a way to tell him or her before dumping them! Not an easy task I would imagine. I guess I would begin by telling the person how much I love them and that I feel that there is something they should know, delicately explain the problem all the while reminding them how important they are to me and offer what ever assistance I can in resolving the predicament. I really hope I don't have to deal with such an issue any time soon!

I guess it depends how serious of a girlfriend she is and whether you actually see the relationship going somewhere. Maybe either way the right thing to do would be to gently let the person know. Even if you're breaking up with her, it seems kind of cruel to let her move on not even being aware of the body odor, bad breath, etc. However, realistically, if it's the beginning of a new relationship and/or it's a relationship that isn't working out anyway, I think a lot of people would just break it off and not mention the odor. It's hard to say for sure what I would do. I might feel too bad saying something about it even if I knew it was the right thing to do. Now, if this person was someone that I was really in love with or something, I would say something or somehow hint and get the point across because I don't think it's something worth ruining a great relationship over.

.. if you love your girlfriend, then you will help her overcome that thing.. try to be open.. talk to her heart to heart.. for me, I'd be pleased if my boyfriend would do that.. it's hard but its needed.. of course your girlfriend will be hurt at the beginning but she will soon realize that what you're saying is good.. If not, you could also give her a gift of cologne set that will include a lotion, a cologne, and a deodorant.. that way, your girlfriend will not think directly that she has something bad..
