So I always answer an email/text as soon as possible, and I have always considered it rude not to answer a message, but there's someone who lied to me and still expects responses to his texts/VMs. I want to cut him off and yet feel it's incredibly rude. I told him yesterday that I can't be around liars and thought that was the end of it, but today he's still texting. I haven't answered.
- Just ignore him. It's not rude in this case.Vote A
- Always try to answer a txt/VM. It's rude not to.Vote B

After reading your description, I feel like we are the same person! ha ha I feel the exact same way about texts, texting back and feeling bad when not responding.
I was actually in a similar situation when a friend and I got into a little fight. He continued to text me, call me and want to grab lunch here and there but I had no interest in hanging out with him. My responses were always short and to the point or I simply did not answer at all. (And I'm the type that ALWAYS responds to texts, unless I am mad at the person)
Idk what your situation is specifically. Did he lie about something major? Enough to end the friendship? If you do not want to continue the friendship and see no hope of rekindling it, just ignore him altogether. Hopefully he will get the idea. (with my friend it took a while lol)
Or just tell him you are very upset with him over him lying and that you need some space from him. Tell him you don't want to talk to him right now but maybe in the future if your feelings change you can contact him. It's hard to tell when I don't know how serious the lie was. :/ Good luck though.
Simplest thing to do is to ignore altogether--- especially if you will never have to see him in person (ex: work).1
