Guys is it normal to exaggerate when you first meet someone you really like?

Im not a big fan of lying (well who is?!) but is it normal/ok for a guy to exaggerate when he first meets someone he really likes even though it will obviously backfire at some point?

Im not talking about massive things like saying you're single if you're married with kids but something like saying you're head of department when in fact you're just an employee or saying you're a teacher when you're only a teaching assistant (yet) or even saying you get 3 weeks leave per year when in fact your employer offers you 7 weeks...(no, I've no idea why he would say something like that either!)

  • A person who can't be honest about his or her self is one who is not stable enough for a healthy relationship. That being said, it's the normal. People lie about themselves each and every day.
