Social grace and ethics

Let’s say a Jewish person asks you how a conversation went with another Jewish person, who acted like a jerk to you—perhaps even after you got referred to them by the first Jewish person.

How do you deal with telling the truth (or at least not telling a lie) without committing lashon hara?

Isn’t it an aveira to say only good things, because doing so might lead the person to refer more people in the jerk’s direction?

Yet isn’t it lashon hara and also an aveira to harm a Jew by speaking badly about them—especially when they aren’t around to defend themselves?
