I became friends with his guy. I am still trying to figure out why he lied so much about everything from having heart problems to where he grew up to his parents dying, were all lies. I would sometimes be talking to him over the phone and it is obvious he is driving or in a car yet he would lie to me and tell me he was in his bedroom. I can understand the reason he lied about almost everything.
It could be that this guy craves attention and is insecure in his own life that he creates lies to cover up what is real, It sounds to me like he needs to see a counselor to work out his issues, being lied too is horrible but I sometimes think we need to look at why that person has lied and is it malicious or do they just need help and support.
It is a known fact that most people in this world will lie before they will tell the truth.Sense there is more evil in this world than it is good,expect the negative first,the truth have to be forced out.
It can be pathological but it can also be game playing where he is 'controlling' what you know etc to his make up stuff - some people with low esteem get a kick out of that, also it can be the limping dog syndrome, some people seem to need you to feel sorry for them so that they can do or say bad stuff and then play their I am ill card - there are many forum posters like that, it seems to mostly occur in the religious forums.
Surely this guy has a psychological problem. Have you tried to request an explanation from him? How does he react? Some time ago I knew a girl who had the same behavior. I never knew if she realized of his lies or if he lived in a fantasy world. Her lies were meaningless, such as those that describe you.
Once I caught a person telling chronic lies, one after another. When I finally confronted this person on WHY tell me such a trivial lie! The response was; that he didn't feel he had any importance in life, and inadequate at everything, and by telling me these lies made him seem like a more interesting person. I think they actually end up believing their lies, so to them it's not a lie anymore. Sad.
I am curious as to why it is wrong. I do agree that is there is much more to a relationship than looks. What if you are 5 ft 11 woman and do not feel comfortable dating a 5 ft 2 man? Why is it shallow? Isn't a...
