    Kill the *****, or any suitable derivation.

    Don't stand for it.

    Tread carefully. People tend not to lie for no reason. There are probably underlying causes and they may be serious.

    Or she might be a *****.

    Seriously, you should confront her! She's been taking advantage of your friendship for years!

    She sounds like a bit of an idiot who's missed a couple of moral lessons along the way. Sounds to me like she doesn't even see that lying has an effect on other people. Would be cool if you could make her see that. Also think you should ask her why she does it. Seems like she tells different people different things to get what she wants (or to get them to think what she wants them to think). But she may not even realise that that's what she's doing. Don't come down on her like a ton of bricks though, just ask.

    I just thought, you cannot say that she is a compulsive liar. What kind of a friend must you be if you publicise her acts on an international forum? Even if she has done wrong, how can we accept your judgement as fact, you are simply presenting a one-sided oppinion.

    very good point. Ask her. Not being fnny or anything, but she may seriously have something wrong with her. Its the same as people who attention seek - they NEED to do it for some reason. So all you people calling her a ***** and stuff - dont judge this girl before you know any other background stuff x

    My sister is a compulsive liar (also a claptomaniac), there is no underlying reason for her to do it, she had the same up-bringing as me and I dont do it... she is just a ***** :rolleyes:
