well my friend broke up with her bf cause he stinked. n never told him n right after i got a bf who really smelled bad because we were in gym. so he knew because ppl was always saying stay away from me u stink n he just thought it was funny. so some ppl kno n probably just want to smell there stink n other ppl yea i think they would want to kno. maybe leave a note in there locker.

woo...really can't afford a smelly bf but why doesn't she tell him and do sth to help him? The guy is poor...I think it's very normal that ppl get bad smell after doing gym. the important things are they need to have a shower immediately.

it depends on how close you are to that friend. Well, if I have the chance, I should say it nicely and tell her/him honestly. It would be really for your friend if you won't tell her the truth. what are friends for, anyway?

oops, i mean it would be unfair for your friend if you won't tell her the truth.

eheh beh i think is too much embarassing so it depends from friends and people such as if i know that this affirmation can be wrong for that people i will say nothing and so i will do as nothing happened..if normally it is an easy-going people or have a behaviour like that..so may be yes..but i am not very comfortable to underline that towards people in general!!

If it's a one time occurance no biggie. Just casually say in conversation that you are looking forward to a hot bath or nice shower tonight ect. Now if it's constant then that's a toughie like you may need to keep your distance if it really offends you & offer subtle gifts for holiday & b-day like those shower & lotion gift sets. Though on the other hand we have my SIL visiting & her youngest has some strong BO for a 10yo & I can tell her as a child she needs to put on some deoderant!

Real friends can tell one another these things and be friends. I have a not so good friend who I want to tell so bad. But,because were not the best of friends I leave it alone. great question I say.

If he/she really a close friend, then I will definitely tell him/her. It's a friend job for such thing and my friend will definitely understand. If we're not so close, I prefer to be quite about it. He/she will not be able to accept my words as advice and may get annoyed with it. Let his/her close to tell him/her about it.

yes, it's quite difficult to accept that kind of truth.

ofcourse, i would tell him immediately about it and help him get rid of it. you cannot let your friend stink in front of others and get embarrased. Immediately ...

Oh yes I would tell a friend if I think they smell and I would expect the same. Friends don't let friends be smelly.
