To be honest with you, I’m not a fan of the phrase “to be honest with you”, because it kind of implies that if you don’t start your sentences with “to be honest with you”, you’re probably lying.
Oh, just a heads up, I’m dating Hayley Atwell.
But to be honest with you, I didn’t know that was her name until I googled, “that woman from Captain America” just now.
Yup. Hayley Atwell and I. We’re totally dating now.
But to be honest with you… I’m just proving a point. Using the phrase “to be honest” is unnecessary if you’re honest!
