Do you reckon people lie to you a lot?

I find many people lie to me a lot.

Kind of like:

- There are no common morals in UK society, or common standards of behaviour
- People are not atheist in the UK
- Nobody goes partying/clubbing
- It is not normal to take drugs, and taking drugs is a mental illness
- People are always friendly and those who aren't get scolded/excluded

er... why? :thumb:

    People lie to you, or are you just saying you think people generally lie about these things?

    What? I disagree with all of those ^^

    No, I think people lie to me out of spite. And I'm just interested to know why.

    I'm sorry to hear you're being fed false information, but without doubt, you're old enough to know the truth around these, and if you don't you can always go out and explore it. Whose lying to you? Often if its your parents they are probaberbly just trying to keep you safe. However, I would say their was a lot of social stigma on how we act and behave, and it can however vary to becoming less leniant with friends.

    There are atheist's in the UK, without doubt, thinking otherwise is just strange, whatever other people say.

    People do go partying and clubbing, have you never crossed a pub at night?

    Taking drugs isn't a mental illness, however, can effect your mental health depending on how much you induce.

    People who aren't friendly don't get scolded or excluded, depending on the enviroement in, if in a class room, probaberbly told off and that's it really.

    Can I ask, how old you are?

    Best wishes,
    Angel

    It sounds weird and stupid, but I am 34, but it's been happening all of my life.

    People lie to me in my line of work all the time, the only thing I take personally is that they must think I'm an idiot and it's quite insulting.
