I had couple experiences with people who use to lie to the faces of other. It can hurt when you know that someone who is close to you doesnt have a problem with such a bad habits. I really do not understand why people do such a bad things to others. It is true that truth can hurt but say a lay is worse. Such people maybe dont even think about results of their behaviour. What you think about such people? Do you have any experience with such people?

Yes, you made a small mistake in the title, not a big deal but it caused me to laugh very much. I have a close friend that lies all the time. It is like she uses lies to make her world the way she would like it to be. I find it frustrating because I am very truthful person. She will actually do something (for example, pour tea on your carpet or say that she spent money) then one minute later say that it never happened. Unbelieveable. She isn't really mean though just out of touch with reality. I think it is an inability to face what is true.

Yes, and also is ridicoulous when the liar forgot what she or he sad before. And you finally realized that such person have no idea what is saying to somebody. It happend sometimes to me, that I realized it was a lie. :-)

I know what you mean. People can tell so many lies they forget what is they know. They believe their own lies as true. My friend is different however she lives in a make believe world. Her lies are wishes for how she wants things to be, not as how things really are.

People has different reason why they lie. As for myself, I lie because I don't want to hurt someone and because there is something that I want to protect. But as much as possible, I try to be true to the other person. I just don't simply lie because I want to or because I'm bored. Lying to others could also have a negative effect to people, most especially to our friends. Sometimes when people find out that we lie to them, their trust towards us becomes lesser.

Yes,we cautiously decide whether to lie or not because we know it's hurtful to others.That's beautiful white lies in fact.But I don't think people are so bored that just lie for fun.....If they do, shall we ignore the bad feelings they gave us to?It doesn't deserve your heartbreak.Finally, there are lies that are traps actually.People with some unfriendly purposes,deceiving,want you to be lost.So, when being deceived, identify which kind of lies it is and then throw our emotion in.

It is LYING :) Well there are people who do this, and most of the time. Maybe they have reason why they are doing this or maybe that's the way they are.

There are many reasons to lie to others, the most often is for protection, the one who lies feels they will get in trouble if they tell the truth. But many times it just becomes a habit and it's easier to lie then to risk confrontation by telling the truth.

I've got same experience with you.it's really heartbreaking when I know the truth.I just want to talk about white lies. They have always been controversy.sometimes it can be sort of compensation for short-term,but the more it compensate us the more hurtful it will be in the future.

For me lieing is usually not an option, but sometimes you just have to make a little white lie to save your skin. Lieing to a ones face is really a rude thing to do. Afterall he/she will find out that you lied to him/her and then he/she will be really mad about it. I have been and currently am around some people who really lie whenever they can, but I can pretty much pick the real stuff from the lies so it doesnt bother me that much.
