Radical honesty in dating


In the last book of the Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld, a character named Frizz Mizuno invented a surgical brain procedure called "Radical Honesty" that renders him unable to lie.

Though I didn’t get certified as I’m connection-avoidant and too smart for Radical Honesty, the consent and culture have spread throughout Berlin and Lithuania with a bunch of people leading practice groups and playing, experimenting with RH in their own way. The base for every event is me supporting you in telling the truth, challenging your beliefs, testing assumptions, expressing oneself fully and implementing changes in real life relationships. You need to get dumber” – Brad told me in the trainer’s training Feb 2017.

He also told me he doesn’t want me to work with people.

I appreciated his feedback and then resented him for it the next day.

Sucks, or maybe not, people want to work with me and so I want you to know that I’m not a trainer but rather quite awesome and helpful in some other ways.

When my husband and I first came together as a romantic couple three years ago, we agreed to practice Radical Honesty in our relationship, meaning he and I wouldn't keep any secrets from each other bigger than a surprise party.
