Do you ever lie about yourself to other people?
Sometimes when talking to someone new who I am unlikely to meet again I will lie or elaborate in order to appear more interesting.
I know why I do this but I wondered if anyone else does it from time to time.
These are never serious lies just descriptions of a person that I want the world to see me as, it’s almost like a game for me. As far as close friends and family are concerned, I can’t do this because they already know me and so it would be easy for them to find out that I was lying.
I would like you all to be aware that I don’t do that here mainly because when asking or answering questions I like any response to my input to be relevant to my real life or feelings. Surprisingly this is one of the few places where changing who I am isn’t necessary for me.
