No. If someone lies about something that small, it makes me wonder what else they're covering up...

That just makes you disingenuous and unworthy of respect imo

But often people won't find out as long as the story is somewhat believable

What's the point? Are you that insecure in yourself that you have to come up with some bs story to make yourself seem cool and likeable. Be true to yourself, go out there and experience life, experience actual cool sh*t and THEN tell your stories.

Tbh don’t think it’s that bad. Depends why you’re doing it.

If something happened and you think it would sound funnier if your embellished it then I don’t see an issue.

But if you’re trying to impress you’re friends with fake stories then that’s not ideal.

Pointless, you don't have to be interesting. You weren't put on the earth for anyone else's entertainment.

Depends on the purpose.

If you're faking stories to get laid, this is very bad.

If you're faking stories just to amuse the party it's perfectly okay. There are some historical personas who became legendary because of their stories made just for amusement, everyone clearly knowing those were jokes.
