    So I have this really great friend. The only problem is that they have really bad b o. If I can smell it then others can and they probably laugh at my friend. How can I tell my friend without hurting their feelings that they smell? Or should I not say anything?

    Try to be subtle, maybe around Christmas time or on their birthday buy them a nice deodorant set? Christmas would be better because you can get all of your friends deodorant and it won't look suspicious x

    When you're sat near them, say to them: "Ugh, something smells really bad. Can you smell it?" .

    I had the same issue with a close friend and we ended up breaking up cos she found it that offensive ... either just let it be or just ask subtly or bring a conversation to do with showering be like I'm gona go shower as soon as I get home how many times do you shower?? and then maybe they'll get the hint
