are little white lies acceptable?

do you make it a big deal if your SO tells you a little white lie? or do you shrug it off?

  • Little White Lies add up and become bigger lies...So I make a big deal about any lie, and I do not expect to be told lies, period!!!

  • i guess it would depend on what the lie was about in the first place..if it was about talking to another woman or something than i wouldn't be able to shrug it off b/c i'd wonder why he felt the need to lie. but if it was something other than that than i'd probably just shrug it off after calling him out on it, i'm not the type who can keep quiet when i know the truth about something someone has told me

  • I dont find there to be any reason to lie whether it be a white lie or way big one, that just leads to problems... now if its a lie like "do i look fat?" and you dont want to hurt their feelings than maybe yes but other than that NO

  • my SO lies like a rug! If his mouth is open then he's lying. I just see past his bs by now.

  • A lie is a lie, little or big, and is not acceptable in my house. I can not stand liars.
