A blast from the past

I was online and had my yahoo on...... all of a sudden, *POOF* a friend I hadn't heard from in almost a year says "hey beautiful."

I almost gasped for air.... OMG! It was HIM!

We were an online item for almost 6 months until I caught him in a lie (big sigh). He still denies it to this very day but, I have proof so... whatever! (he was having phone sex with another girl which I refuse to do....)

So anyways, I thought to myself "Self, can you forgive the lie and continue?" I was so on the fence about it. I still had strong feelings for him.

About 30 min into the conversation? He starts up with such an obvious blatant lie - I was sick to my stomach.

No more, gone, finished...... SOOOOO out the door.

What the HELL? His lies were so stupid to begin with.

His best lie of all was "I have to go to Iraq to train the border patrol." He's not even in the reserves!!!!!!!

So my question is.... why do people lie. AND, when they do? Do they really expect people to believe them?

That was the most insulting part of all. He really thought I believed him. *eyeroll*

I don't know why people lie, 44DD. I mean, there are a few possibilities, but I think it boils down to a lack of intelligence or perhaps intelligent people underestimating the intelligence of others around them.

I can tell you why I DON'T lie though. My dad always says "If you're going to go through life lying to folks, you'd better have a good memory." Well, I don't. So I stay honest as possible. It makes life simpler.

Your dad is a smart man five_speed

I have to draw the same conclusion as well, lack of intelligence!

I've heard some doozies in my day. I had a roomate in college that tried to get me to believe a branch of his family were assassins. I let him go on and on about it.. he had it all fleshed out - how they operated, their tools and tactics of choice... their secret code... man, he had an imagination, and the scary part was I could tell he was actually buying his own bullshit.

When he got done, I said "Chris, I like you already, man. You don't have to lie to impress me." He insisted it was true. I said "I know it's not, and I can prove it. If it was true, you'd be a marked man right now because you just told half of their secrets to a guy you've known three weeks."

He and I didn't get along very well after that. LOL

EXACTLY five speed!! People who have family "in the business" are so tight lipped, it's not funny.

It would be such a breach of family honor to disclose that, OMG!!

Sounds like narcissism to the extreme.

the scary thing about this guy was that he had undeniable charisma. He could tell you the most absurd line of bullshit you ever heard, and he spoke withsuch conviction that you believed him. I often had to consciously remind myself that he was full of himself while we talked, or I'd start believing him too.

He used it against me after I moved out on him. Long story, but in short, we weren't getting along anyway, and one night a female friend of mine stayed over - we weren't sexual friends, but she slept with me in my bed that night, and when I woke up in the middle of the night, Chris was looming over the bed, arms crossed, glaring down on us. We had a few unpleasant words. He left. I got up and broke my key off in the lock so he couldn't get back in. I moved out the next day and took my tv, stereo, nintendo - everything, and left him with nothing.

So he tracked down a woman I WAS having sex with and used his spooky powers of persuasion to sell her such a line of shit about me that she wouldn't even return my calls anymore...
