So many lies - August 5th 2010, 03:48 PM

So........ i really dont know what to do. I recently found out that my bestfriend has been lying to me. About MANY things.

I was over at her house last night and she said that she has this new boyfriend, hes so awesome I should meet him, and that he was at her house earlier that day. I come to find out after asking her siblings about it that she was making the whole thing up to make herself seem more popular.

She also has said that she has all these friends that are seniors that i dont know. Also a lie. Im just not all that sure if I can trust her anymore Shes been my bestfriend for years, and she only recently started doing this...... what can I do?


Bi-sexual and proud

I would look at the reason why she feels she had to lie about these things. I doubt her intent it to hurt you by lying about having a boyfriend and being friends with the seniors.

Like you said, she's probably craving popularity/wanting to fit in. I had a lot of friends in high school who did this and I often got them to fess up by just generally talking about friends lying, instead of accusing them of lying. I would say just try to find a way to get her to feel like she can open up and realize that she's not alone and doesn't have to lie about these things to impress you or anyone else.
