    I try to be honest about everything important, but I've always found myself telling small white lies for literally no reason. No guilt...I just love lying :dunno: :mamoru:

    i'd rather know it all... :dunno: regardless however insignificant it may be.

    i don't like to be lied to, and i don't like lying, but i have had both happen in the past.

    what kind of stupid shit? like that your chick looks fat in a dress, but you dont want to tell her?

    i would rather know it all, but i know some people would rather hear the white lie. i have many friends who i literally can not be honest with because they get upset if i tell the truth, so i just dont

    If you're feeling guilty about it, that should be a clue.

    Just something to think about....

    People who cheat often lie about it...in order to "not hurt your feelings".

    And come on, if you're worrying about hurting somoene's feelings over something small, what happens when something big comes up?

    :werd: I'd rather hear that "that dress doesn't do anything for you" but I know people who would flip out if someone said that to them.

    The other night I put on a dress with a certain pair of sandals and asked my bf what he thought. Said he hated them and I went "aww man, alright" and went and changed them :mamoru: If it was my sister and you told her the truth she'd get upset.

    It seems like there are situations where I would want to be lied to, but i'm not coming up wiht one at the moment.
    Phrasing is more important than anything, if I say, looked fat in a dress, I would want to know. He shouldn't say 'hey babe, you look fat' but maybe ' that style doesn't really suite you'

    I used to think it was okay, but I found myself getting to the habit of lying for no reason. I really try hard to always be honest, but it isn't always that easy.

    Most of the time, I highly doubt it's actually about sparing the other person's feelings. If anything, when you lie to someone, even a small one, it's to spare your own ego being damaged by the thought of you doing something wrong, or something that will hurt another. Just my theory, though.

    I use to tell white lies when i was younger, IE when i lived with my rents i use to always tell them i was getting drunk, Partially lying partially telling the truth(usually the truth unless we couldn't get some alcohol). But i don't lie, not worth the hasle if someone were to find you lying. Tell the truth. If the truth hurts to bad you either should have asked someone else or not asked at all.

    You should know the person well enough to know if telling the truth is the right thing to do or not.

    Anyone who knows me knows that really all I care about is objective truth regardless of the subject so people are honest with me.

    I am honest with people and I prefer them to be honest with me too. The little white lies I don't care about though.

    it's better to combine telling the truth with omitting information, than to lie.
