Why I Lie

My girlfriend and I were going to the store to pick up dinner. The inside door handle of our car had been broken for several days, she asks if I called toyota today to get it fixed. I lied without a moments hesitation, said yes and that they didn't have the part. She asked to see my phone, I obliged. I  can't even say why I did it. I need to figure out why I do this. I have looked online for anyone to call and talk to but there doesn't seem to be any options. I fear that I have lost the best thing that has ever happened to me (the girl) or worse yet, that I just dont deserve her in the first place.  I find that I lie about things that don't really matter or are of no consequence. I need help

just do what Loveful said... best way to get over the problem. -old post ...smh-

in truth, you are what is known as a chronic liar. my wife is also. lying violates trust-the glue of society.

Maybe you're a compulsive liar? How about the next time you lie about something, and know you did, just say "I'm sorry, that was a lie. I am trying to be more honest with you though." Just cuz you lied, doesn't mean you can't hurry and realize your mistake and apologize =).
