Gentleman Jack and I are honest with each other almost to a fault.
Sometimes, the things we say are not comfortable for the other person to hear. Usually one or the other of us feels hurt or discomfort but we have to share that feeling too. There have been times that I'm crying or he's upset but we talk through it and feel closer after.
Sometimes these are VERY long, emotionally exhausting phone calls.
Sometimes, I can feel my brain saying, "This is HARD!! I don't want to do this anymore! I want to hang up now!"
But we keep on until its resolved.
I like honesty. I usually tell men I'm dating,
"You can tell me anything as long as you're honest with me."
However some of these things are NOT fun to hear. Some of these things stay in my head for a while and I have to come down from them.
If I feel that way then surely he does too, right?
Is there such a thing as too much honesty?
