tough, coz i'm not good at lying. i just try to avoid the topic, otherwise, the one who asks should just bear with the painful truth.

No, I would rather tell someone the truth, then to lie to someone and they go around looking like a fool. Then when they find out the truth, how do you explain your reason for lying

No, I have a problem with lieing, I always mess it up when I try so I have learned that if they cant handle the truth to bad. I have been spilling the beans for about 25 years now, I do not butter coat it or try to make it easier for the person. better to just let it all out and move on

I have before, but I hate to do it so I'm as honest as can be because I don't like things to come back and bite me in the butt later......

I don't want anyone lying to me and I am not going to lie either. I have no respect for liers. Telling a lie and hoping you won't be found out hurts much worse than telling the truth to begin with.

I try not to lie, but I guess a "little white lie" would be ok-so as not to hurt their feelings. If it was an important thing I would tell them the truth. I would try to couch it in niceness, though. Like," I really like the way you...., but you shouldn't ....

Sometimes we have to lie so that others can be happy. And sometimes we have to hide the truth because sometimes truth can hurt more. We just want our loved ones to be happy.

No I will not lie because in the end that lie will be found out and it could make the situation worse. I do find that sometimes if I am asked for an opinion and I do not want to offend the person that I will say "I would not do that" or "perhaps it would be better if you asked someone who knows more about it". Something like that is not a lie and at the same time I haven't offened the person asking the question.

Telling a lie to someone for the reason of not hurting his/her feelings are what you call "White Lies". These lies are healthy though, but don't abuse it for it may cause danger and misunderstandings between people concern and worse it may lead to a broken relationship either between friends, lovers, family etc.

I try not to lie to others, it hurts worse when you find out that someone you trusted lied to you. There's a saying "the truth hurts" and I think it's true, but i try to be gentle when I tell hurtful truths.
