Honesty is a facet of moral character that connotes positive and virtuous attributes such as integrity, truthfulness, straightforwardness, including straightforwardness of conduct, along with the absence of lying, cheating, theft, etc. It is also involves being trustworthy, loyal, fair, and sincere.
However, people lie to get financial advantage, escape punishment, or to feel cool. None of these reasons justifies the act of lying and no matter how tempted you are, you shouldn’t lie for any of the reasons listed above, and neither should you lie to get someone’s attention, or to get them to like you. Anyone who’s going to like you will do so because of who you are and what you stand for, so there’s no need to change or stop being yourself. Below are some of the things you must never lie about;
1. I Have Lots Of Male Friends
One of the most common things to hear girls say these days is “I actually have more male friends than female friends.” If that is genuinely true, there is no problem. But if you are faking that and telling a guy just so he can think you are cooler than you really are, then you are mistaken. Women having more female friends has never been a bad idea and will never be a bad idea. You don’t need to lie about the gender of your closest friends just to impress a guy.
2. I’m Not That Sensitive.
You know a certain amount of guys who do not like overly sensitive women, and your crush says the same thing. “I actually do not appreciate women with too much emotion. it scares me,” he says.
3. I Really Like Football
Do not tell this lie all in the name of you want to get the guy’s attention cause you know he loves football. You’ll be playing yourself if you do, sooner or later your lie will be exposed!
So you respond with something about being one of the most aloof women God ever created when you know that you are nothing but a big bag of mushiness. If you both somehow get together in a relationship, how long do you think it’s going to take before your oversensitiveness shines through and pisses him off?
4. I Don’t Mind Friendship With Benefits
You like a guy so much but he says he is not ready for a relationship, but doesn’t mind a situation where you both stay friends, and enjoy casual s*x. You are extremely bothered by s*x without emotions and commitment, and you know deep down that you are incapable of it, but you lie and tell him it’s fine. The amount of heartache this will fetch you will be limitless. You are much better skipping the lie and letting him go.
