December 14, 2009

50 percent of couples lie to each other two to thee times a week, according Psychology Today. Being 100 percent honest all the time will most likely get you in to trouble in all sorts of situations. As Ophira Eisenberg points out in this video from dating site YourTango.com, when it comes to lying, it’s important to know the difference between a harmless fib and a potentially damaging deception. As she so deftly puts it, “White lies are not saying you are at the game when you were really banging your assistant.” Amen, Ms. Eisenberg, Amen.
