    Better to tell the truth. If you have to lie to someone you may not need that person in your life. Be yourself. Don't do anything you don't want people to know about. Lies usually get found out.

    To anyone who has been married for any length of time, would know that being 100% truthful all the time would end in a quick divorce.  We must operate through a set of filters which let each person know exactly what is pertinent to the conversation or situation.  To the person who said a lie, is a lie is a lie, I hope you live life peacefully and in a good mood all day long, I wouldn’t want to hear how crappy your day is…everyday.  Would you tell your boss you think they are a moron when you truly believe that?

    yes they can be...when my girlfriend asks me "Does this make me look fat"  The answer is always NO, even if its a lie. 

    thats innocent right? makes her feel good, keeps me from getting the silent treatment, and the world keeps turning.

    There is an old Sanskrit saying "Talk truth; talk pleasant; if truth is not pleasant, then talk the pleasant". Somehow, I could not follow this great advice. I am mostly "the emperor has no clothes" type of person.
