What are the possible repercussions of confronting a pathological liar- Are they likely to start spreading lies about you?

No, as a man myself I don't think he will start a one-man smear

campaign against you. That sort of thing takes a lot of energy to

maintain, and pretty soon those on the listening end will get

pretty tired of his act. The people who care about you will not be

swayed by a man who does that sort of thing, and those that might

be influenced can be crossed off your Christmas card list with no

real loss.

What you need to do is find a peice of information about him that

you know he does not want anyone to know about. Don't confront

direct but keep dropping cryptic hints and allude to the evidence

you heard or know of. No matter how he denies or blatantly lies on

top of it.

This will accomlish several things.1) he will fear you. 2) he

will stay away from you 3) It will neturalize him. He will still

deny it all but isn't as likely to seek vengeance or humiliate

you.
