How do I tell my friend she has re­ally bad BO?


If it had hap­pened once or twice, I wouldn’t think much of it, but a friend of mine has a pun­gent stale sweat smell every time I’m around her. If it was my sis­ter, or a close friend, I’d let them know – but I’ve only known her for un­der a year. All I know is, if it was me, I’d want some­one to tell me. How do I go about this?

I to­tally agree with you, Kate. I would want to know too. But this ob­vi­ously is a very del­i­cate one – for all you know, her odour prob­lem could be caused by a health is­sue. Rather than rais­ing it with her, I would try to talk to one of her closer friends first – or per­haps seek ad­vice from a fam­ily mem­ber be­fore you talk to your pal.
