    Basically, my friend asked me round to celebrate his 18th. We had a bit of a party in his house, followed by a few rounds in the pub. During the evening, my friend whose birthday we were celebrating asked me to go to town with him at another time. I agreed but on the day we were meant to be going he said he was not going out as he went out a couple of nights before. Turns out he did go out, as another friend spotted him. What should I take from this?

    Thanks in advance,

    He is not your friend anymore.

    He has no problem with telling you lies and you should be very wary if not ditch.

    You may well be right. Why did he ask me round his house though?

    Thanks for your help.

    Either of your friends could be lying.

    For all you know, he could have been out with someone he'e embarassed by but doesn't want to humiliate, or he could have been out with a lady friend who he's not ready to introduce you to yet.

    Don't take it too personally and get on with life; there's no point in getting worked up about it.

    Maybe he wanted to go out with other people but is useless and doesn't know how to tell the truth..
    Either that or he's not really your friend...
    I think only you can tell, based on how he is around you/his interactions with you and the way he is in general.

    Some people would rather make up a ridiculous lie than to just say the truth..I personally don't understand that mentality but still

    I don't think my friend who saw him was lying as he told me who he was out with and also it would be out of character for my friend to have not gone out. It's certainly nothing to do with a lady friend as I have met and spoken to her.

    Thanks for your advice.

    When I was around his house and with him in the pub he was being very friendly. But he does seem to have this split personality...

    Thanks for your advice.
