    We All Do!!!!

    There is no way about it, lying about certain things is NECESSARY!  If we don't, then we are exposing ourselves to unnecessary risk.  We lie to keep our business to ourselves, we lie to keep things stable, we lie for a lot of different reasons.  It is NOT ok...

    Lie Like a Rug

    Lying is never, ever the right thing to do. If your man asks you if his penis is the biggest you've ever seen, don't resist the urge to laugh. Go go ahead and tell him your high school boyfriends was twice as big. He will appreciate your honesty. After sex, if he asks you, "...

    I Want To Stop

    I lie. I am a liar. There I said it! Feels better. I read somewhere that part of stopping lying is admitting it to the people you have lied to. I have been lying about every single aspect of my life for 6 years now. I can't just say "haha just joking" to everyone in my life - but...

    Lying To Ourselves?

    Why is this such an unpopular story to share? Why are there dozens of "I Hate Liars"-type groups, but only 79 people in this one? Because nobody likes to admit that they lie. But the fact of the matter is that everyone does. From simple omissions to avoid problems to outright...
