Lying

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Why do people lie about important things? :confused:

I guess I have before; but I always get a guilty conscience. If I've taken anything is I can spot someone who lies quite far off now :rolleyes: - but it's how some people can give you a cheesy smile straight to your face. it makes me want to slap them.

    all sorts of reasons:

    because some people are idiots.

    because they don't have exciting lives and feel the need to jazz it up a little.

    because some people are compulsive liars, and lie about stupid things.

    and to save people's feelings.

    but all of those are bad reasons arent they? I used to be a compulsive liar (though out of self-motivation and wanting to be 'better' for my ex-girlfriend I think i've kicked the habit)

    sometimes if i have to spare someones feelings i avoid the truth rather than lie to their face you know?

    yeah, they are bad reasons.

    lying to spare someone's feelings isn't so bad, but you usually end up in a bigger mess.

    unles its something really harmless like:

    "do you like my new top"

    "yeh its lovely! :D"

    when in your mind you are thinking 'is this a windup? :confused:why would anyone wear THAT'

    when people ask me that, i give them the 'do you want me to be nice, or do you want me to be honest' option.

    i don't give out meaningless compliments. if i compliment you, it's genuine.

    if i go out of my way to compliment someone then its genuine. however if they asked me first ill usually just hand out some random compliment so i dont hurt their feelings; ill often make hints though... but then again some girls even when they look nice wont accept it :confused:

    ahh we've got these really annoying shazzer girls at school who always compliment you so you do it back, now when they say summat to me i just say thanks, look them up and down, smile and walk off, it makes them real paranoid

    how many of the things in your life are lies? like; whole parts of it? :confused:

    like parts of your identity. with me there are too many to count :confused: sometimes after a while the lies become the truth in a way... :confused:

    Lies is never truth, not to the people who care, Only to the people who tell them.
