i know people lie for a reason or they won't bother trying to put themselves in situation wherein they will be in trouble. it may be white lies,it may start out as small and then later developed into something big that could affect ur life in general. im not saying that i don't lie. coz i do so myself. but always on small stuff. its for the sake of to avoiding trouble. in a relationship, this can be a problem. i always make it a point to the guy im with not to lie. i want everything to be open like say he doesnt like that, tell it straight to my face and ill handle the hurt myself while being grateful for being truthful. but, there are just people whose attitude is to lie that it has part of their daily lives. so do u guys believe that once a liar always a liar? how do u detect liars and how do u handle when u caught someone lying manytimes especially in a relationship?

I also lie from time to time, but I don't consider myself a liar. I consider myself an honest person, who usually says everything in your face. Although I cannot do this every time, because there are situations where a lie is better. I am not talking about trouble, because I don't care about this fact, I always searched for truth and justice. I think these are the most important things in life, truth, justice and respect. If I respect somebody, I will tell him the truth in his face, so he can handle about it and so justice to be made. I hope you understand what I am trying to say here. There are times when a person sees that is better to say a lie, because it is not a big thing and that way the discussion is over. I only lie about things that concern only me, and somebody wants to know some information that is strictly my own business, should not have any effect on others. This is a situation when I prefer to lie and not tell the truth. Another situation when I lie is to cover my friends or my relatives. I am not a snitch type, to make a bad reputation for others.
