    i tell small lies, and i do so effortlessly to the point where sometimes i don't even realise i've done it to later. for example i was talking about a guy i went on a date with and i made up some nice things he said to me, it was only later when i was thinking i realised that i'd made them up. ill tell friends ive gone for a drink with friends without even thinking about the lie, its just comes out!
    my point is i find it so easy to lie and sometimes don't even notice im doing it! they are small , harmless lies but it's still kinda odd!
    anyone been in a similar situation, advice?

    i do this sometimes. i think it's a nervous thing. and i just exaggerate or add in a few things to keep myself chatting. but i actually imagine that it happened. then later think "why did i say that crap?"

    I do this too. It's weird. Like my boyfriend will ring me up and say "what you doing" and I'll just say something totally random like "watching tv" or "having some food" when in reality I'm just online. Why don't I just say "just browsing online"?!?! I don't know why I do it, I just do?

    Same. Not actual lies which make any difference and never on purpose. But like, I walked into New Look once looking for a coat I'd seen in another store, they asked me which and I said Cheltenham instead of Oxford, even though there was entirely no reason to :holmes:

    For me its when i imagine something too much i start to believe it actually happened, especially things i dreamt about.

    Do you lie to yourself that you have a whopper for a penis?




    When in fact it is more french fries?
