What are different ways to give advice to someone without being dominating or harsh.
<p>So I was talking to my native English speaker friends in a group call. And someone suggested using the word "should", something like "You should go out and get a drink". And among them, a guy felt it as if it's dominating.</p><p> So I was just wondering how to suggest someone in a polite way. </p><p>Of course, I googled it and few of the ways are indirectly giving them suggestions like - " have you considered going out and grab a drink", "have you thought of going out and grab a drink" etc. </p><p>So how you are going to advise your friend in a polite way?</p><p>
</p><p>Edited: I have added a few of these from comment sections. Thank you for helping me out. </p><p>-" Why don't you go out for drinks?"
</p><p>-"How about you go out for drinks?"</p><p>- you could try “could”</p><p>- “you might want to.”</p><p> -“We should go out for drinks sometime”
