Well, crap...we're all liars!

to the tune or Dr Pepper....."I'm a liar, you're a liar, wouldn't you like to be a liar too? Be a liar...be a big liar."

I "honestly" (now thats funny) believe there isn't a whole lot of truth left in this world. I lie...whether by omission, or out of the need to not hurt someone....but a lie all the same. I am married to the one person left in the world who "cannot tell a lie". But...oh oh.....what is that? A lie? An omission of the truth? Well, as I said before, there isn't a lot of truth left in this world. And apparantly not in my house either.

So, what do you lie about? Do you lie to yourself? About your own needs, wants, or fantasies? And if you deny yourself your fantasies and just try to live without them, isn't that a lie too? Well, come on now, tell me the truth!

Hey Wetty! I have to agree that I lie to myself more than others. Sometimes the truth is just to hard to face.

Lately I've been looking at the whole "lying" thing through the filter of "game playing". It seems everyone I know who's trying to date (male or female) thinks that they don't "play games". But when I look at how they behave in their dating life it really appears that they _all_ play games but tend to only blame the "other guy/girl" for doing it.

So you might then be inclined to ask me "well do you play games in your dating life?" and I would of course defensively answer with something like...

"of course not! I would never partake in that lowly sort of reprehensible behavior!!!"

Irony indeed!

Fly - I guess you are right, and all you really can do is TRY to be honest.

KC - WOW! I think the game playing is really and truly a lie. And your answer "of course not", cracks me up. But thanks for being honest.

Waggypolly....I try really hard not to lie. But sometimes to avoid hurting someone else's feelings, I know I do. And sometimes....and many times.....I lie to myself. I guess thats the worst lie...is to yourself. I lie that I am open minded enough to allow my man to experience other women.........or that I want him too. The funny thing is....if you lie to yourself too often, you start to believe the lies.

Lies certainly do have an effect on everyone involved. I have found that out firsthand and it certainly stinks. Is there such a thing as a reformed liar? I hope so! The biggest loss is the other individuals trust, that's hard to regain.

Yes, Playful, I think there is such a thing as a reformed liar. I don't think that any of us really wants to lie. But then the lies get lies and those lies get lies and YIKES! its all out of control. Trust is harder......but can be earned!
