Dating a pathological liar
Dealing with the Everyday Confronting the Liar Understanding the Compulsive Liar Community Q&A So, someone in your life makes, "I did not have relations with that woman," look like child's play, eh?
If you want to keep them in your life (and you have every right not to), then you have to stay calm and learn to deal with them without losing your patience.
He loves me and accepts me for who i am good and bad and it makes it so hard to let go. I know this man personally..all fell so bad for him and for her.
Well, turns out he never had cancer, there were no appointments, no treatments. This guy was a drug addict in the worse way, and obviously a pathological liar. People donated money to help support them because he couldn't work and she had to quit her job to take care of him.
I think maybe when we first met he lied about things he's accomplished in order to impress me. But he has a problem and he's admitted it but yet doesn't seem to be getting better.
He told me he was going to therapy but i don't think that is true, and how can i know when i only see him on weekends?? DMO, I can't say your situation is exactly the same as what I am going to describe, but I have a friend who's b/f (who became her husband) was claiming he had cancer as well, but from the time they met.
It was one of those "oh, that's just him" type of situations--his family, my family, our friends, etc. The lies would range from, "I'm just around the corner" when picking somebody up (when he was actually nowhere near), to "of course I paid the mortgage! Ten years later, I'm struggling to get away from him.
It doesn't sound like he is doing it for malicious reasons, but more for feedback from those around him.Wanna know how she found he was not dying of cancer? Apparently he had been robbing many banks in a couple states (I suppose while he was away for 2 day treatments.She was watching the evening news while he was at treatment, and low and behold there is his face on t.v. So, just imagine the devestation my friend is going through. Many family members took out second mortgages to help finance his treatments and support them. Is this this kind of scenario you want to find yourself in? Needless to say my friend is in completely turmoil, financially and needless to say emotionally.Proceed with caution- and above all, protect yourself. He has told me some very big lies including losing a best friend to suicide and some small lies everyday almost.And one final thing- I was pretty convinced that my husband wasn't cheating, but he told lies so easily, that I am pretty sure that in fact, he was cheating. I hate living with someone who lies all the time, but I really love him as a husband and a father.
People that do this usually keep their lives segmented, rarely will they have a party (for example) with all their friends in one room, because they can compare notes, which would be bad.
