the straw that broke the camels back?
Hi there, I have been with my boyfriend for 5 years (since i was 15 and he was 17), and pretty much the first 3 years he would lie continously about stupid things, and i mean really stupid things. stuff like how much he paid for something, or whatever. We had a talk, recently we've been having a few talks about it, and he promised me he would change etc, because I can't trust him - if he lies about small things he could lie about big things. He promised me he would change etc. So today i caught him out in another lie, again only smallish - i didn't think he should make a decision that i know he would regret, but he did it and lied about it to my face. then i caught him out, and he tried to lie his way out of it. All he had to do was tell me and i would have been fine, it's the lying i can't stand. i really feel at the end of my tether, like i can't be with him when he lies to me, but everytime i talk to him he gets snappy about it. i want to make it work, he lives with me and my parents and we have plans to get a house together in a few months, but will he stop lying or am i over reacting? just need someone to put things into perspective, thanks x
