Not that I am opposed to the "little white lie" if it spares someone's feeling but even that form of lie should be used sparingly and not for anything of real value.
I was with _____.
(When you weren't. YOU just made that a shady situation)
Little white lie:
No, I really do like that color on you!
(Unless it is really horrendous then you owe it to humanity)
I will call you later
(but don't mean it. If something comes up and you really can't then you should either text and/or call at the next convenient time. This is usually a dumb male move)
Little White Lie:
I'm a little tired and am going to stay in tonight
(as long as you really are staying in!! The lie is that you're tired. So what you just don't want to be with THAT person tonight...)
Warning: Never Ever Ever lie about location and/or activities to friends or those close to you. Especially if you are male...People (especially woman) always find out. ALWAYS. Men- I cannot share with you how because it's in the handbook we women get at birth BUT trust me. Please!
Lying...So Stupid. Stop it.
