We talked about how to spot deception and lies yesterday and I thought about lying by omission. Some people argue that failing to tell the full truth is not technically a lie. Well, I believe that when your intent is to purposely withhold information, you clearly are being dishonest.
When you are dating someone, it helps to figure out what kind of “moral compass” people are guided by. When you don’t share a similar outlook, you would probably disagree on how they handle the important things.
If you made some kind of mistake, do you confess your wrongdoing or could you quietly keep it to yourself?
A lot of guys I know say they would rather not know if they were cheated on or deceived. If it comes out, they will deal with it. If not, they are fine with being kept in the dark.
I like to make informed decisions so I would rather a confession. If I had to admit to something I did wrong, I would suck it up and take my chances with the truth. What do you think? Is confession truly good for the soul?
Have you ever confessed a romantic crime? Are you glad you did it?
