If you liked someone alot would you deal with the smell and not risk losing them or hurting there feeling or would you tell them or make suggestions? and the same goes for smelly feet or bad knock you down bad breath?

I would tell them but i would try and find a nice way to do it but seriously no matter what you say or how you say it it is going to hurt there feelings to an extent, But it is going to hurt their feelings even worse if you have allowed them to go out in public with really oders so it is best you be honest!

Yes I would find a nice way to tell them and let them know. Sometimes ppl don't realize it. I'm a big woman so I make sure I always shower every day, wear clean good smelling clothes and take extra care in all my hygiene. LIVE IN PEACE

I am also a big woman and it is harder I think to stay fresh because I tend to sweat more. So I use alot of products that are suposed to help keep that refreshing feeling throughout a day. Right now in my computer room with a fan running it is 102* degrees HOT!! showering everyday is a must for heavier people. I would like for someone to tell me though if I wasn't as fresh and smelling good , I do have a problem with bad breath even though I brush,use mouthwash and chew breath freshening gum throughout the day..

I know big ppl who hardly ever shower and wear the same grungy clothes all the time. I don't know how they can stand it. They say that its too hard to get in and out of the shower and they can't reach everything. I don't care if all I can do is hose down...I'd still do it. As it is even though I can barely see without my glasses I still take a shower every day...I can't seem to function without one. LIVE IN PEACE

They are products out there right now for people who can't reach areas they are for obese and for the elderly. Wearing clothes for multiple days doesn't help any. If I couldn't reach the areas needed washing I would purchase one of the long handled scrubbies or a sponge thing on it. Sometimes taking a shower wears me out. Grandma castle always preach about being clean.

Thats the most difficult thing to tell. i think people naturally realise that they have bad odour

TRUST ME on this one...some people are horribly ignorant and it's really awkward trying to tell them. you don't want to hurt their feelings or risk insulting them, but if you're sitting next to them suffocating, well...

I don't think some of them or even me at times realize it sometimes it takes another person to tell me mostly my hubby or mom i try to deal with it by brushing,mouth wash and chewing gum specially made as breath fresheners..thanks for the reply i appreciate it..

Yes I will, not just with someone I like but so long as they are friends. True friends means telling them the truth not to run them down but to help them - help them be aware 'cos many may not be aware of their problem and to find ways to correct that problem. Your friend should be more than thankful for it. Of course it has to be done diplomatically and with tact.

Hello usmcsgtwife, thank you for responding to my discussion I appreciate it alot. It is good that you can tell a really good friend that. I usually just deal with it unless it is to unbearable then I might respond the way you have and tell then gently as I can because I know people can be harsh and mean and blurt things out the wrong way and at the wrong time or place. Well, thanks again Have a good day of posting.

That is a great answer I hadn't thought about what would happen if they encounter other people who could become very mean and rude about it. We was watching this comedy movie and a line in it said "whooo you have exactly breath, to which the other person replied. Exactly breath, what is that? and the answer was it's when your breath smells exacly like your a.s.s Hope this didn't offend you in any way. I myself have bad breath and sometimes it is very hard to get rid of evn though I can brush,floss,and gargle mouth wash seems within a half an hour the breath is back even chewing gum specially made for bad breath doesn't seem to help for any long period of time. But all I can do is just keep up what I'm doing.

No Regrets! - This is a picture of a sign that says don't regret anything that made you smile. I like it alot. it is done in pink lettering.
Thank you for replying to my discussion I appreciate it alot. But I ask this question. How do you go about telling a person whom you are friends that they have some serious breath issues? What do you say? Do you say bluntly "seriously dude you have some funky breath going on there"? I mean it is very hard to tell someone..

Yes I would I couldn't be with someone if they smelled I would gag every single time I was around him. They need to be told the truth in order to change their scent of funk. Honesty is key!
