kinda of hard to tell to me its all the same trusting people online as in the real world we will always come across people who are fake or only want to make them selfs feel better. i always try and be a good person and tell the truth and i never give out any personal info not even my name and as for real life it takes me a long time to warm up to people and let them know where i live or my phone numbers

if somebody says something 10,000 times would that make it true when you know it's not?i've seen some people's profile's and what they say isn't true.i don't know why people lie on their profile but maybe it's to make themself's feel better.

I try to always tell the truth, because that's how I would like to be treated. But sometimes when people ask me questions I'm uncomfortable with - I might lie or just not answer (For example, I've been asked my phone number - and I gave them a voice-mail only number instead of my actual one). I think it's a lot easier for people to lie to you online than it is in person, that's why it's important to be careful & really TRUST your online friend before giving away too much information. *shrugs*
