I’ll be honest, I’ll tell a white lie or two and not think a thing of it. In fact, I think white lies can be better then the “I’ll tell you how it is no matter what” attitude. But, when do the lines between a white lie and lie blur for you? When do you tell white lies? Are there people who get the whole truth, all the time?

mm..i think it is similar to being “tactful” 😉

I tell white lies until someone confronts me. Then I sheepishly admit that I stretched the truth. Unless I don’t trust myself with the real answer–as in, telling that woman I don’t know very well that her hair looks nice. I really try not to say things like, “Well, I wouldn’t get my hair done that way,” because that basically means you think it doesn’t look so hot. Stuff like that. My ex husband prided himself on being honest all the time, and he’s realized that it’s been rather detrimental to his relationships with others, and it really doesn’t hurt either party to be nice instead. Still talking only things that qualify as white lies or fibs. When I can’t tell what I should do, I try just to tell the truth in as nice a way as possible, and change the subject after.

I think it’s okay to tell a little white lie if the truth will hurt a person’s feelings and NO good can come from telling the truth.
