I don't see this as unusual at all , nor do I see it as a outright lie . The truth is , your parents were busy ( somewhere else ) and not including the information that they were not physically on the premises does not make that statement untrue .

It's just not a safe or good option to advertise to any stranger that a child is home alone .

Thanks for the post, I learned A LOT! Would you say most liars or pathological liars are bipolar?

No . I wouldn't and I think it's a mistake to generalize . There can be many different reasons why people develop the compulsion to lie .

Bipolar disorder is not one of them , to my knowledge . Please be wary of using one type of mental illness / disorder to explain another . Only a qualified mental health professional can make those judgments .

It was only a question. Are you a qualified mental health professional?

Sorry Sobriety , if my reply came off as a criticism or "scoldy" . It wasn't meant to be .

Twas my viewpoint , that's all . None of us here are professionals .

I have only just found this forum after my twenty year relationship been more or less to a finish about my lying in our relationship, i have read the opening post and found it very usfull but now being almost 50 i cant see a way forward to change this issue ,with me i can relate to 90% of resons for lying.
Please understand what i have been lying about is not the issue its the lie’s and the time span.
Dont get me wrong i have remorse over it but even now i have been caught out i am having difficulty in being honest in truth my wife us having to drag it out of me and now wants to have a lie detector test if which she says if i am lying we are done the problems is i dont honestly know over the years what is and what is not the truth.
I honsetly think I am not cut out for a long term relationship and better off on my own for all involed
