i think i'm dating a pathological liar - I genuinely fell in love with him over time, thinking we were so alike (he was great at mirroring) and feeling so close to him (although i now know that there person i thought he was , wasn’t even real at all) i trusted him around my kids, and with my most personal memories and experiences (which i would share in attempt to show him that life can be bad but things can get better. ’ve started dating this guy, we’ve been together since june, i’ve caught him lying to me me so many times, even the smallest of things, like… we got a 300 ruppes fine and he tells the world it was 3000rupees, he tells everyone he worked in the lions park in south africa with my dad, he’s in a group chat with a couple but it’s only with her! I started feeling like we were getting too close at one point and said so, but then felt silly because he didn’t seem to think there was anything to worry about, and said he didn’t feel attracted to me that way sooooo… i went against my better judgement to help him through his “grief”. ’s how i tried to get my boyfriend to stop lying:It is possible to get a compulsive liar to change, but he’s going to have to be confronted over and over with the truth of his lying ways, and it’s going to be a long, systematic, and strategic process.
We all engage in deception occasionally, but a pathological liar enjoys compulsive lying for no apparent personal gain.
