'To let someone down gently'?
Can this mean the same as 'to break news to someone', in case it's bad news?
I would add this question to a previous thread if it wasn't closed.
I'd really appreciate it if you could give me a common example. (I was wondering if this is a common usage, too!)
Re: 'To let someone down gently'?
Yes, "Let them down gently" means to soften the delivery of bad news.
Examples: A girl wishes to break up with a guy. She says, "I think we should take a break."
A guy's investments have tanked. His broker says, 'Our choices haven't performed well."
