Hi Gene!

I have this "friend". Well, she's more of an acquaintance. Either way, she's a handful. If there was a scale for "tomboy", she'd have tipped it years ago.

This evening I came across her at the club and she offered up a hug. Not being one to deny a woman a hug, I jumped in. It wasn't until she walked away did I realize that I was now soaking in her underarm sweat and smell.

I know she may not be the most delicate flower in the garden, but I was overwhelmed by her body odor, which was slowly soaking into my shirt. I was struck with this dilemma. How do you tell someone that they are unpleasant?

I did the admirable thing and walked away, never mentioning it, but I know this has to be an issue with anyone who comes in contact with her. I care about this girl's feelings and it pains me to think that I would have to make her uncomfortable when revealing this.

How do you tell someone that they have B.O.? Do you make subtle hints? Do you out right drop it in their lap? If anyone has a suggestion, I'd be VERY interested in hearing your opinion.

I think it would be embarassing for her to hear it from a guy. Perhaps , if u both have a mutual female friend, u could ask the gal pal to bring it up to her casually.

She's a powerful woman and I think that Kat may be on the right track. She isn't a girly girl by any means. I rarely see her in make up, and she often wears fatigues or overalls... definite tomboy. Hell, she fights men in amateur bare knuckle bouts, so your intuition is probably right.

I would agree that this is something that would be embarrassing to bring up, and quite possibly a "dangerous" topic. The inquisitive side of me could ask her questions about allergies and such, or possible sensitivities to scented detergents, perfumes, etc.

Thank you all for your positive input. I appreciate it.
