What do you do when the one you are madly in love with is a compulsive liar?

It is of course just my opinion, but this is not a relationship that is healthy to be a part of. If you are just falling in love, cut your losses and find someone else. Pathological lying is deep-seeded and how can you ever trust them?? Trust is 90% or more of a relationship. Good luck to you. I am on this site for the first time and I am the one who posted this question earlier. Thanks for the advice. I wanted to clarify that I have been with this guy since he was 16 and I was eighteen. That was 10 years ago. We were friends in the beginning and saw each other with other people. We dated a touch, then broke up, then dated etc. We eventually dated consecutively for 5 years. I know he loves me more than he could any other girl he knows. It's just that he is a liar and I catch him, he'll admit it and say a bunch of excuses as to why he lied. Sometimes he won't admit it, even when faced with proof. I am so invested in this relationship that I don't just want to never talk to him again (which is what I probably should do), I want him to get better but it seems that no matter how many times I forgive him, he'll eventually go back to his pattern. I do love him, and he's a good-hearted guy. I really don't think he can help himself-he really believes some of the lies he tells. I do believe that he loves me as much as is possible for him to love someone. I'm screwed up to even think about putting up with this anymore.

What is a compulsive liar?

A compulsive liar is defined as someone who lies out of habit. Lying is their normal and reflexive way of responding to questions. Compulsive liars bend the truth about everything, large and small. For a compulsive liar, telling the truth is very awkward and uncomfortable while lying feels right. Compulsive lying is usually thought to develop in early childhood, due to being placed in an environment where lying was necessary. A compulsive liar may also have difficulties with poor self esteem. For the most part, compulsive liars are not overly manipulative and cunning, rather they simply lie out of habit - an automatic response which is hard to break and one that takes its toll on a relationship. A compulsive liar may have difficulties with poor self esteem.

How can you tell if you are a compulsive liar?

Usually compulsive liars are not confident individuals and they feel the need to dramatize certain events in their lives to impress others. These are some of the signs of a compulsive liar: If the compulsive liar did something wrong and someone else found out they'd lie their way out of it. Telling others about things in their life that didn't happen. Dramatizing events in their life that didn't go down the way it did. Lying over silly things such as borrowing something from someone and denying they ever had it. Lying about other people. Constantly blaming others for the problems one gets themselves into. These are but a few. If a person has been told they are a compulsive liar they probably are. Compulsive liars often don't mean to be this way, so professional help does help them balance out their lives, face themselves and not be afraid of being who they are or telling the truth and taking the consequences for their own actions.

Is it possible for a person madly in love who was hurt to go to complete indifference in a matter of a couple weeks?

It would depend how madly in love you were.I would say that you didn't love that person as much as you thought you did.Or your a person who can turn off your emotions.I broke up with my girlfriend about a month ago and I still cry when I think about her.I thought we were madly in love,but I guess I was the only one madly in love.So yes you can go to complete indifference if you didn't love as much as you thought.Marty

How can you make a compulsive liar face his lies and realize they are lies?

In my experience,compulsive liars are not literally compulsive liars.They are a very creative lot.They conjure up lies knowingly.And they do this because they derive a sadistic pleasure by thinking that they have fooled others.What they do not realise that after a point of time people can see through their lies.So you need not try to make a compulsive liar face his lies and make him realise that they are liesfor he is already aware of it.You need to ask him to seek help immediately.But then it has to be an absolute professional who has helped similar cases in the past otherwise all you may know that he has ended up fooling his psychiatrist.I am not trying to answer the question lightly,its out of experience I am mentioning it. Good Luck! Perhaps the best one can do is face up to the lies you are being told .. admit to yourself they are lies and move on .. We really cannot force anyone to do anything and if forcing begins to look like an option, then maybe it's time to acknowledge there is a problem we need help with. Let the liar be inspired (or not) by our own actions. Get help. You deserve it.

I believe that the difference between compulsive behavior and obsession is that compulsive behavior tends to include more than one thing, more like a lifestyle than a single obsession. I think that obsession usually just includes one thing that is habitually done repeatedly.
