I pose this question because I've become increasingly irritated with the lies I've been fed lately. What do you think the main intent for people to lie is? I mean some of the stories that I've been fed not only on sf but in real life are so far fetched and the facts don't add up etc. So, why do people do it? Do they have a problem? Do they feel they have to lie to feel loved, important, wanted? I'm just curious as to what people think? I personally think that there is an underlying problem with the person if they feel they have to lie. They might be covering up some form of truth by making up some far fetched story. They might feel completely unloved in the real world so to feel wanted they weave a web of stories to feel like they are supported/loved. Who knows? Thoughts?
