Have you ever lied to someone to spare their feelings?

Yes. I have lied to someone to keep from hurting them. Sometimes, it is not necessary to divulge every detail of a situation, either. If telling the whole truth will only make matters worse, or will add insult to injury, there is nothing wrong with leaving out some details in most situations.

I think that everyone has told at least one white lie to save someone some dicomfort or heartache. I like to pride myself on being as honest as possible, but if the lie isn't going to hurt anyone and it's going to spare someone I care abouts feelings, then I'll definitly tell that lie.

I can agree with that point.
