    Best to be honest. Don't force somebody to breakup, just let them know your opinion. People are often misjudged.

    telling family members about these stuff is not bad, but seriously, It's the person's choice, his/her heart loved that person, he/she and no one else can change that feeling!!

    I would stay out of it unless the person they were dating was abusive or cheating on them. Then I would step in.

    It's better to be honest with the other person. The other person might resent it, but they would keep it in the back of their minds.

    I feel people who are honest get further in this world.

    If they ask me, I will tell them. If they don't ask me, I don't try to push my opinion on them. You create a resentment when you step outside your authority. If it's your child, that's a different story. You need to know the person they are dating and spending time with.

    People should definitely be open and honest, but don't cause a lot of drama if the person doesn't want to take your advice.

    I think you should be able to be open and honest about anything bothering between friends and family. But it is comfortable to tell someone something like that, no. It doesn't always help though. Everyone told me not to marry the man I did, and I did not listen. And they were right. Someone in love may not always listen. But if you can save a loved one pain, it bears bringing up (but not harping on) imo.

    When telling others how you feel about the person he/she is dating choose the right words and the person will be be offended and will respect your opinion.

    Sometimes people are blinded by love attraction or what ever.I think especially a family member or close friend should be able to talk about these things.Better to open their eyes and let them see through yours.

    I think it is OK only if it is in the person's best interest and not out of spite. If the person they are dating is legitimately doing something to hurt them...cheating etc..
