How Do U Tell Ur Friend She/he's Got A Mouth Odour?

I guess the question is quite explicit but demands some pragmatic and genuine responses.

It's a very common thing that prevails, but how do u tell ur friend? or u just keep quiet abt it and 'enjoy' the halitosis

Just say it like it is - your mouth / breath reeks.

Sometimes the softly-softly approach doesn't work, so the sledgehammer approach needs to be employed.

If they're indeed close friends, then they shouldn't take offence - better than being told by a total stranger.

If I had the breath of a camel, I'd like to think my best friend would tell me.

When she sees you'd rather kiss a dog than her, I'm sure she'll understand.

I found myself in that shoe and hear what I did. I am married now and I discovered she had a mouth odour when we were going out.   I started by telling her I wash my teeth twice why didnt she cultivate thesame habit.  She said there was no need for it.  I told her she inviting mouth odour, immediately  (jokinly) I told her to move closer to smell her mouth, I told her you already having it baby, so you nee to do somthing fast.  Now, odour has disappeared.

Send them a link to the thread and tell them you think it is a funny thread.

Reading it might make them think about thier breath and fix it.

tee hee hee. its a sensitive issue no doubt. u can start subtly by offering mints, etc. then if it doesnt help then break it down gently[using a lot of humour] so ur friend knows. better than an acuantance telling ur friend
