Tofel topic: telling the truth

There are a lot of factors which influence the human relationships. Some people think that telling the truth is the most significant factor in relationships while others mention other considerations. In my opinion, telling the reality is a very excellent habit but sometimes white lie is more beneficial. The following explanations substantiate my opinion and make them more tangible.

First, in some cases telling whole the truth deteriorates relationships. To clarify, a man and a woman who want to get married, it is necessary that know some realities about their past to gain somehow recognition about each other; but they must not uncover all their previous relationships, actualities, immoralities or former mistakes. In my view, past is not so important as present, even if there were some errors, they belong to the past. Hence, we should not generalize them to the future. For example, last year my friend wanted to marry, her fiancee and my friend wanted to hold their ceremony but exactly a day before the ceremony, my friend wanted to show more her honesty to her husband. Thus, said all of her previous friendship experiences with a few boys. As a result, her spouse discouraged about her and was thinking cannot rely on his spouse.

The second point that should be taken into consideration is that telling the truth might hurts others hearts. All of us think that we are just logical and only our attitude is correct and want to change the world according to our taste, whereas this manner loses our compassion. For instance, last week I had been invited to my close friend's birthday party. She had dressed up a very old fashioned dress while she was thinking that is very gorgeous. Incidentally, in the middle of party enthusiastically asked my opinion about her new dress. In despite of my inner idea, I expressed she looked beautiful because I was sure she would be disappointed if I state my real opinion. Furthermore, my tiny notion would spoil her happiness and eagerness.

In a nutshell, based on the arguments above, there are some things that have more merit such as keeping the friendly connection warmly or not annoying others hearts. That is why telling the truth is not on the first place of importance.

Tofel topic: telling the truth

I believe your TOEFL prompt is much more than this. With this it is difficult to understand to which type this essay belongs to. I mean there are different types of essays like agree/disagree, reasons and solutions, discuss both views etc. If you post your full prompt then we can comment as to align your response more with what it really asks.

I wish to have a look at the full prompt before giving my comments. Pls post it here!

As I read so many answer templates , all of them had mentioned some points about introduction exactly as you offered here.
About the "Hook" I tried to put a general sentences related to the topic

regarding your revise, I could not distinctly understand how well I can put my introduction in a perfect way
May you please do it for me

Furthermore , May I know your idea about the rest of essay like robustness and soundness aspects
I would be so grateful for all your help
