Well, you were contending with the OP, who was not suggesting that "we tell the truth to strangers and lie to our friends", but asking a question about the scenario...

And yes, there are complications about personal relationships...so?

And I'm still wondering in what scenario do you lie to someone who is a 'friend' and tell the truth to strangers?

Well, that's a fair question, right in line with what the OP asked!

Please discuss, especially if you have people who you are close to you and want to comment on their photos without "hurting their feelings", but at the same time offering constructive criticism, and then, giving "open" critiques to so-called "serious photographers" -- how do you do the "balancing act"?

I'm not saying you have to tear them a new one but offer constructive criticism. While they may not be a serious or pro photographer, there's no reason they shouldn't be able to take a proper photo and by not telling them anything and saying it's great when it isn't, you're not helping them reach that point.

This is moving rather off topic so I'll only comment about what I should say to my friends one further time. Generalisations that may on the surface seem completely reasonable do sound terribly 'grown up'. Unfortunately the real world ( my real world anyway) doesn't work according to sweeping generalisations but rather, carefully thought through responses tailored to the situation and relationships involved. I reserve the absolute right to do what feels 'right' to me at the time, even if, because I am human this may not always be correct. In this specific case there was in my judgement, zero to be gained by disillusioning my friends and much to be gained by using a suitably chosen response.
Only people who have never uttered a 'white lie' are invited to respond lol!
