When we meet people it’s natural to want to talk ourselves up. It makes us feel important, and we often feel that it will make the other person more attracted to us. Telling out right lies is not a good idea, but sometimes things just slip. It doesn’t’ make you a bad person, but if you expect the relationship to go anywhere you will need to come clean.
Where’s It Going?
If you just met someone and your online profile says you are wealthy, you should tell that person the truth before your first meeting. This way you don’t risk forming a connection then loosing it because you lied. If that person is interested enough they will overlook this.
If however you have already met and allowed the lie to go on, you will need to come clean sooner rather than later. They are going to find out eventually when they see your car, your home, meet your friends. The longer you let this go, the worse the consequences will be.
If you’ve told someone you’re wealthy when you aren’t you have to be prepared for the consequences of this deception. Coming clean is a good start, but your date is going to start to wonder about what other things you’ve lied about. They are also going to want to know why you felt it was important to lie about this to begin with. Many people will allow you to explain yourself and give you another chance, but many more will just walk out the door. Especially people who have been deceived in the past. Don’t expect this to be overlooked, and learn the lesson for the next time around.
