I'm very interested in knowing what your longstanding lie was with her your girlfriend that casued you both to break up after four years. This is the most interesting discussion I have ever seen on the internet. I mean, this lady telling us about what seemed a simple enough fib turns out to wreck her love and then you tell of your lie that wrecked yours. I've been reading Lies People Tell for years and I haven't seen people really opening up like this until recently in the different forums.
I feel compelled to tell some lie story of my own but I'm only twenty two and haven't had a lot of experience with lies. Well, hah, I went to a Catholic Highschool and basically everytime I put on that uniform it was a lie but it was like so much a part of my life. I did remain a virgin all through highschool but as soon as I got to college I just bust out. But that's another story for like some other kid of website -- except of course for the fact that I never told my parents what I was up to. Would that be considered lying? I suppose so. Sometimes I have nightmares that I'm going to get found out about all that.
But Glyn -- add more!
: I've had some experience in long-standing lies, and not telling, and being afraid. I know how it feels to HAVE to tell someone something, but being afraid you'll lose what you have with them.
: Seeing as a similar situation caused my girlfriend of four years and I to break up, I can't say I agree with what you did, but I do believe that everyone in the world deserves a second chance. We're only human, and we make mistakes, and I agree with you that love transcends that.
: Maybe it's better you're not with him, if he wasn't as understanding as you thought he'd be.
