    I Would Be Okay

    Please, never lie to me in an effort to spare my feelings. I'd much rather be hurt by the truth than to be comforted with a lie. If you didn't want to date me, that's fine. I would've gotten over it. If you weren't interested in a girl like me, that's alright. I would've moved...

    I'd rather be slightly hurt by your lie,

    than be even more hurt by your lie and the truth. I'm even more hurt by your lie because how can I trust that you won't do it again.

    Even If It Hurts

    The thruth hurts sometimes... but lies hurt worse - just not at the moment they are told. Lies screw up everything - my marriage is ending because of my wife's lies. It starts out small, then builds up and up into some kind of horrible monster. Then you start uncovering the truth...

    Lies Vs Truth

    Lies hurts so much and sometimes the truth can also hurt as well but I rather know the truth then to be lied to.  There is nothing better then honesty.

    I Dislike the Truth But I Hate the Lies

    I want to know the truth so much. It sure hurts when you find out the one whom you love so dearly lied to you all the way. I hate the feeling of being deceived. He don't have to lie just to make me feel good about himself.

    I can say that I've been lied to all my life, and at the same time, not many people bothered to lie either. Its complicated, I know.... My father is a major liar... most of the time... more often he is just a major d**k about everything be it true or false. But... the bullies...

    My Lesson

    Why do lies so easily spill out ones mouth like vomit?!! Why forgive? Why love? Why even care? I'm no way perfect, but it's obvious that I attract deceitful, harmful and careless people. I trust what's being told me when the truth was never an option to say. However, yet...

    I Don't Like Being Lied To, Either...

    Especially about my looks. You don't need to falsely try to cheer me up. I'm not really good looking. I know it. People I know have made it abundantly clear. Please don't lie to make me feel better, it only makes me feel worse.

    You Can't Build Anything On a Foundation of Lies

    The name of this group confused me a little but i guess it means "I don't like being lied to because I like to know the truth". I think a lot of people act like the source of pain is them telling you, not what they did or the truth behind what they tell you. For me...

    Lied To For Too Long

    I was lied to for far too long by everyone I knew. My friends lied to me because they were lied to themselves and did not know better. My parents lied to me because that had been their way since their own birth. The Elders lied to me because they needed to keep me ignorant and...

    True Fact

    Apparently, every guy whose interested in me tends to forget me. At the end find their love of their life. I doubt I'll find one. Couples look so happy but I be upset to get hurt again.

    So Frustrating

    Yes, the truth does tend to hurt sometimes.  But I would much rather have the truth and have it hurt and be able to honestly evaluate a situation than to be lied to.  That is one of my pet peeves--yell at me, scream at me, walk away from me...but do not lie to me. ...

    I know lies aren't good,

    but if I had the choice, I would rather have someone lie to me and then be honest with me, to put everything out in the open and vow not to do it again, instead of piling lies upon lies until it gets out of hand. Dishonesty is not good, but if someone owns up to their mistakes...

    It's Very Simple

     To me, lying is only acceptable in surprises, such as birthdays. I have lied before, so don't think I'm perfect that way, but to me, if you have to lie, you probably shouldn't be doing what you're doing. There are extreme cases in which lying is acceptable, but as I said...
