Your Turn

Today is going to be something a little different. I'm going to try an experiment and see how it works. On Friday's from Noon to Midnight Pacific time I am allowing anonymous comments. I really want Your Turn to allow everyone to participate even if they don't have a Google account or don't want to identify themselves. Plus, for the item today, you might all want your anonymity. You don't have to be, but for the next 12 hours you can.

Today's topic is the biggest lie you have told to someone or been told by someone.

Remember the anonymous comments feature only lasts until midnight and if it is abused it will not be making a return appearance.

I was repeatedly told since I was a little girl that hell exists. Imagine being a 6 year old and fearing a lake of fire and brimstone, where you burn in torment forever, if you are not right with god when you die. I lived with nightmares and terror for years.

I didn't get over that fear until I was nearly thirty years old.

Enty is my lover and he's fabulous!

Actually, an old boyfriend didn't pull out when I told him to so the next day I had to rush to a clinic and claim it was forced intercourse to get the morning after pill. In a way it was, but if they knew the truth I wouldn't have gotten the hour lecture from the doctor.

My son is by egg donor. I didn't want anyone to know as one side of the family would feel "He's not really kin to us", but the other side would fell "She's not really his mother because he's egg donor". I live in Texas, and I couldn't risk it. Now that he is a preschool kid, he looks like me (I was smart enough to choose an egg donor that resembled me.) Big secret, I know.

My family knows me to be 'frigid' to men, since I was a teenager. I wouldn't accept a date, and didn't date, but like 5 dates before I met my husband in my mid-30's. Yes, I was a virgin well into my mid-30's. Anyway, they still don't know the reason why I was frigid and an ice queen until I met him. I've always said he was the nicest guy in the world. And he was. He was the one guy that could make up for the football senior who did his best to try and rape me after a High School Bonfire when I was 15. My husband new why I was cold, but my 3 brothers still don't. They will never know. Why? They'd hunt him down today and kill him, just like they would have 30 years ago!

This was about 15 years ago. Me and my g/f at the time bought our first house together. We planned on getting married. A few years later, she and her sister were in Cancun. Her sister was starting a business there. The g/f called and said she wouldn't be back on time, because the flight was overbooked. (a lie).

She came home 5 days later. Said she wasn't happy and wanted to break up but wanted to keep the house. I said fine, just buy me out. She said she would have to get a roommate. I said that's your problem. An hour later, her lover from Mexico arrives at the door. He hardly spoke any English, and was 10 years younger than her. So while I was in the master bedroom for the next week packing shit up, sleeping, they were in the spare bedroom on the other side of the wall fucking. Obviously, he was just looking for a free ride to America. He got it.

So basically, the whole relationship was a big fucking lie.

P.S They ended up getting married, she got pregnant, miscarried (on my birthday of all days), both got hooked on crack, divorced. She ended up losing the house and last I heard she is living with her folks and is on state disability for depression.

Other than the typical lies to my mother, the only big lie I have ever told is telling my kids there is a Santa Clause. I feel wierd about that, actually, but still do it. There is also the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy in my house.

When I was little, my parents told me there was a boogie man who was always out looking for kids that were out of bed too late. I was scared out of my pants and had nightmares all the time. I still remember what he looked like in my nightmares, and it still scares me to this day.

By the way...I don't think hell is a lie...not sure if there is a firey lake or not, but I think it's there and is probably an eternity of being treated the same way you treated others on earth. IMO

After I went on my first date with my now-husband, I told my parents we went out to dinner and to the movies. In actuality we went to his place and ended up having sex. Even though we've been married for years, I still feel like if my parents ever found out I would get grounded or something.

BTW, I love having the anonymous comments b/c I dont' have a Google/Blogger account but would love to post comments. I feel like such a part of the CDAN family now. Yay!

When I was 16 & pregnant, I told my mother that I knew who the father of my baby was, but I really didn't. I had to confess I was pregnant to get her to pay for the abortion. That was a brutal time in my life.

I think not telling someone they were adopted is just awful. Both of my children are adopted and have always been very open about it. It is just a part of life for them and us and we don't have this deep dark secret hovering over us. Plus, they don't ever have to feel ashamed about something they should never feel ashamed of in the first place.

My ex-boyfriend used to make random call to find women he could have phone sex with while I was out (we lived together). This was in the late 80's/early 90's, before internet porn and chat rooms were available. I never knew about it until I came home one night and he was freaking out. He was having phone sex with some lady for awhile and her husband found out. Turns out her husband knew my uncle through AA and threatened to tell him. I am still grossed out by that story. What a loser.

I can't remember ever telling a big lie to anyone. I've told little white lies to my mom about things like how much I spent on a pair of shoes or something. My biggest lie is one of omission I guess you would call it. At 31 I am still a virgin. I was raised Catholic and am still a practicing one at that and I believe in waiting until I find the right man. So my lie of omission is that when my friends talk about sex, I tend to just nod and agree. I can only go by what I've read in trashy romance novels.

Years ago, a guy who worked at the same place as me called to ask me out. At first I didn't know who it was, then when I realized, I still pretended I didn't because I didn't want to go out with him and I was too afraid to say "no."
Ironically, I thought THAT would be mean and would hurt his feelings!
I know - "Whaat?!?" Asshole.
In my defense, aside from just not being interested, I had heard the guy liked people to, ahem, excrete on him, and I was but a jittery virgin and that shit (LOL) terrified me.
Still, I should have had more balls than that.

I am the best liar I've ever known or seen. It scares me sometimes how well I can do it. I maintained a two year relationship with a guy while escorting on the side. I didn't tell him I was married. My husband disappeared and refused me a divorce, so I just took off and said fuck it. Every time the boyfriend made me mad by trolling for ass on Craigslist, I'd go out and cheat on him and lie about it every time. He caught me with clients twice and I managed to lie my way through both situations. I lied to him about people I'd been with while he and I were separated for a few months. In high school I remember lying about miscarried pregnancies to get attention from my boyfriend but I grew out of that. I lied to my husbands face when I told him I hadn't cheated on him. I lied when I told my boyfriend that I was sure our soon to be aborted fetus was his. I'd only had unprotected sex with him at the time because I'd been forced to have unprotected sex with a client, and I wanted to cover my ass in case I did get pregnant, which I did. I lied to another client to milk the money out of him for the abortion. I got almost $2000 for free from a lonely man who was supporting me simply because he knew I was troubled and thought we were the best of friends. I mostly put up with him because I had to, and strung him along with promises of meeting him later, another lie.

God I keep on double checking this to make sure its anonymous. I'll probably change my IP too.

I cheated on my husband for about a year before I left him. I technically never lied to his face, I just told him enough of the truth of where I was and who I was with for him not to question it further. He had told me I made him sexually uncomfortable (because I wanted to talk about fantasies) so I went out to prove to myself that there wasn't something wrong with me.

Biggest lie ever told to me : I love you. By my parents.

Biggest lies I've ever told:

(1.) After I found out that my now ex-husband had been cheating on me for a year I told him that I wasn't upset. Truth is I was pissed and made a big mistake by sleeping with my boss. We split, I never told about him about what I had done and I quit my job.

(2.) While addicted to painkillers and Xanax, I got busted by a family member. I had gone down to my parent's house for a weekend and my sister was standing in my old bedroom talking to me while I unpacked some clothes. A bottle of pills fell out of my bag and I told her that it was my now ex-husband's. She never spoke to him again and tried to convince me to get him in rehab or leave him. She was worried that he would get me hooked on them. When we split, she was the happiest out of all of my family members. I've never told her any different.

Biggest lie ever told to me: When I went to get my drivers license my Mom decided it might be time to tell me who my real parents were! Of course, as mad as I was at the time, I realized that the people who raised me were my Mom & Dad. And after meeting the sperm & egg donor and feel very lucky to have my Mom & Dad.

I told someone that I loved them when I didn't and maintained a relationship with this person for a year. I knew I did not have the same feelings for him as he did for me but because I was always accused to being picky I kept him around until I could not take it anymore.

I had to break his heart and let him go and that was the only time I have ever done this because since then I have been on the receiving end of this and I know how it feels now. Sometimes I think that Karma has me down for an extended punishment relationship wise because of this because I have yet to find someone that I have fallen for although I have zero (0) regrets about not being with that guy. I just wish I was more honest with myself and him.

When I was 27 I found out I was pregnant. No problem, just get an abortion. Problem was it was too far along in the pregnancy. (Yes I am an intelligent human being, I just thought I was fat and my periods have always been highly irregular so missing them wasn't a big deal.) My boyfriend at the time who is now my husband decided to give the baby up for adoption. Neither one of us want kids and we were in no way financially capable of providing for a child. We gave our baby to two wonderful gay men who have since been married (yay!). Right after the baby was born my parents were visiting and we ran into the two men and their baby. It was very awkward and I never told my parents (or anyone else for that matter). Sometimes I feel guilty that I don't feel guilty.

I've told many a lie. The biggest one is to myself.

When I was younger I was home with just grandparents a lot as my parents worked all day. My grandparents didnt' speak english so I always picked up the phone. I have this one vague memory of a man who called and asked if my parents were home and when I said no if I could take a message he asked me to do him a favor and asked me to touch myself. I was 8 and didn't realize what it all meant. I told myself I made this up for years after I realized what it meant.

I don't know if it had happened before or again after, all I remember is that brief glimpse. But what I do know is I have a fear of older men, and am scared to be in a room alone for extended periods of time with older men.

This one isn't about me but my father and it is a little confusing so bare with me.

When my father was about 2 years old, his mother died of cancer so he never really knew her. His father never talked about his mother because he was so heart broken about the situation and they had no contact with her family because they were from Scotland. Several years later, his father remarried and his wife adopted my father as her own. My father's father ended up dying when my father was in his early 20s. The only family member he had left was his adoptive step-mother. Everyone had already died on his father's side and he had no contact with his birth mother's family. My father is now in his early 50s and his adoptive step-mother just passed away last year. After the funeral, a church member from his adoptive step-mother's church handed him a bunch of documents with the words "DESTROY" written on them. It turns out that my father's original parents were in fact his aunt and uncle and he was adopted at birth from his mother's sister and another man. The worst part is that his step-mother and father had no intention of every telling him this. He also finally found out that he has a family that now resides somewhere in England but he had been kept from them this whole time because after his "mother" had died of cancer, his "father" was afraid they were going try to take him back and his father wouldn't let any of the family have contact with him. Now my father has no family because of these lies and he can't find his real mother nor does he even know why he was given up for adoption.

Biggest lie ever told me (I forgot, sorry, lol):

A girl I knew from a town even smaller than the one I grew up in, spun this elaborate tale of being a mafia girlfriend, having a murdered boyfriend, having had a child at what would have been the age of 12 (if the story were to have checked out) that died of leukemia at age 4...on and on and on. When I mentioned it to a mutual friend, she laughed her ass off. "Gangsters...in Washougal?"

I've also heard "I didn't sleep with her." That one sucked the most.

I had unprotected sex in my marital bed with a mutual friend of ours. Because i was trying to conceive and knew the timing was very tricky, i then made sure to have sex with my husband when he came home that night.

Three weeks later i found out i'm pregnant... I'm pretty, pretty sure it's my husband's; the baby looks idenitical to his brother, but you just never know.

When I was about 6, I told my teacher that my dad had been hit in the eye with a firework on the way home from the school firework display the day before. A complete lie, just showing off or something I suppose, can't really remember why I said it. Anyway, we had an assembly with the whole school where the dangers of fireworks were discussed. I had to stand up in front of the whole school (about 400 kids) and repeat the lie about my dad, and embellish it when the headmaster asked me loads of questions. I remember feeling really disturbed about such a big lie but also quite proud of myself. What I had forgotten was that my parents were both on the PTA (parent teacher association) and the headmaster had phoned my mum to find out if my dad was ok. I got into Soooooo much trouble. The next morning, my mum made me go into the staff room before school and apologise to all of the teachers. Then I had to apologise to my class. Then I had to stand up in front of the whole school in another assembly and apologise to all the other kids. Shame? Never felt anything like it.

I have one more thing to add.

I had a child when I was 15 years old by a family friend who raped me. I gave the baby up for adoption. He will be 18 years old next year and I had not told anyone whom I was ever serious with, (despite my having a c-section scar although it is one of the bikini cut scars.) I had not told even the guy I was once engaged to and had not planned on ever telling him because it took me years to get past that situation.

My worst fear is that one day my biological son may show up and find me and I will have to relive my horror. I am afraid to tell a guy I am serious with this because it may scare them away.

I sold hash for a couple of months to finance my move to another city. Was almost busted when I tried to sell to an off-duty cop who was with 20 other off-duty cops. With one gram in my hand (and 80 in my purse), I claimed to have bought it earlier in the night, was out of money and wanted to continue drinking - and that's why I was selling it. She ordered me to go home immediately and never be so stupid again. I did go home...that night. And sold off the rest and moved a week later.

I had a major Britney-like nervous breakdown when I was sixteen and caused a potentially fatal car accident while my mother was driving on the freeway. I had had enough of her bitchery and blacked out from anger and twisted the wheel. No one was injured though the car hit two others. My mother subsequently placed citizen's arrest on me and I was in juvy for two weeks.

I told my friends and everyone at school that the reason I hadn't been there was because I was on vacation. No, you would never ever expect this of me if you met me. With the exception of my family members, everyone thinks I'm a sweetheart who couldn't and wouldn't hurt a fly.

I de-virginized two boys within 30 minutes. Not at the same time, though.

And the number of bed partners? No, it isn't three like I say. It's sixteen. I am clean, though and have since majorly cleaned up my act.

I lied about my SAT score. Majorly.

I haven't had sex in 2 years. By choice. And also because of my increasing insecurities.

I overdosed on ecstasy and nearly died.

I know my father is cheating on my mother-I saw the pictures and texts on his cell phone purely by accident.

The main reason why most of the courses I take are online are due to a flatulence problem.

I do not believe I truly love anyone or ever really have. Except for my dogs and cats.

I stole several cds from my best friend.

I was raped by the boy everyone warned me against dating. I didn't listen to them, swearing up and down he was a gentleman to me. I will never admit to this, even though I wish he was dead. Just because I don't want to hear the "I told you so"'s.

I came thisclose to sleeping with my father's younger and married best friend. They were supposedly trying to have kids at the time. Still are.

I slept with my friend's crush on her bed.

Every single one of these secrets would shock you if you knew me and saw me. On my defense, I have made many positive transformations in the past few years. I vow to never be that person again.

When I was with my boyfriend, he casually asked me one day about what my best sexual experience had been. Me, being dumb, thought he wanted an honest answer, so I told him about this crazy night I had with this other guy a couple of years prior (it involved lots of rough sex, hair pulling, beds moving across the floor, oh so fun). My boyfriend, understandably was upset with me.

He dumped me some time later (totally unrelated circumstances ... actually, he told me the biggest lie I've ever heard, the infamous "I love you" lie) and, as exes are prone to do, we hooked up a couple of times later. After the second time we hooked up post-breakup, I sent him a long email about how I was so wrong, how he was definitely the best sexual experience of my life.

He was so flattered. I was so lying.

Incidentally, the rough sex fella had previously dated two of my friends and I never told either of them that I'd hooked up with him. One of them would kill me if she knew.

Realized all men are WEAK! Women have all the power. Don't forget how powerful you women are in this world.

I learned that if I get married...I would want my husband to see an escort rather than have an affair. No emotional connection. Also, there is a big misconception that working girls are all diseased. Trust me. 98% of the women I met in the industry take better care of themselves. I have never had a STD. I know...it's not something I should be proud of, but sometimes I get really annoyed when the media goes after the girls.

After lying to me for 19 years, my mother finally admitted that she never wanted children, loved me as best she could but didn't like me, deeply resented me for ruining her life, and if she could do it all over again, she would have had an abortion.

All I felt was relief when she finally admitted the truth because I'd always known and it gave me peace to finally hear her admit it. It didn't stop me from trying to win her over. It took another 10 years of brutal rejections before I just gave up completely and moved on with my life.

She totally loves my younger brother though. He was "easy" to love - that's her excuse.

Biggest lie ever told: Told my abusive scumbag exboyfriend I was pregnant, and the baby was his. I was indeed pregnant, but I'm pretty sure the child wasn't his. Actually I firmly believe the child was the result of a one-night-stand with a friend. Why lie about it? Well, here's where it get's tricky: My ex and I still slept together when we got drunk even though we'd broken up six months earlier because he enjoyed beating the crap out of me (for 2 years.. God I was stupid!), but I had also slept with the friend that week. That one-night-stand had just started dating my very best friend when I found out I was pregnant, and I myself had just started a new relationship with a third guy.
Had an abortion, never told the one-night-stand or the new boyfriend (we broke up shortly after, but he is my best friend still). It was just too complicated.

she moved out to get her own place after we had a falling out over the guy. i told her i couldn't lie for her to her husband when he called and she refused to explain her relationship with this guy to me.
after she moved out, i found out she was pregnant and i knew it wasn't her husband's. she lied to the guy and told him she had testing done and it wasn't his---which you can't even do until the baby comes but he was an idiot and believed her.
her husband took her back and she had the kid who is now 16 and has never been told he's not his dad's kid. essentially, everyone knows the truth except HIM---his family and her family all know the truth.

The lie was that he attributed the hose to a friend of his. It was funny, but I didn't believe him as he was telling it. The truth, it turned out much later, was that he was a cross-dresser.

Lie I told: Years ago, I was working on a weekend. A nearby co-worker's computer was making some ugly sounds, so I walked over and turned it off. Come Monday, it turns out, his computer was totally dead, everything on the hard drive unretrievable including his master's thesis. Oops. The lie I told was saying I knew nothing about it.

Virtually all of my lies are little ones. "Why yes, your new dress looks terrific!"

This isn't my biggest lie, but was my most involved.

Many, many years ago I was hired to help this woman with her home office for a few hours a day. Duration of the gig was about four weeks. By week three, I was completely sick of her. She'd never ever had an employee before and she was totally grooving on it - in a bad way.

So one morning I had a friend call from a payphone on the subway and pretend to be a concerned passerby who had witnessed me falling down the stairs and then carted off by ambulance. She said I asked her to call on my behalf.

Several hours later, I called the boss from home and claimed to have a severely sprained knee and was on crutches. Moaned in pain, the whole bit. I was shameless. Also tried to quit since I couldn't possibly get to work. No go.

She had her boyfriend pick me up & drop me off every day and help me to the car for that final week. They had the sofa set up so my leg was propped up and there was a work station I could use while semi-prone. She cooked lunch for me and sent me home with dinner every day since I couldn't possibly stand up to cook a proper meal. Yeah, she'd been a jerk to me, but when she thought I was hurt, she rose to the occasion.

I had to keep the pretense for a week. In the end, I injured my other knee because I wiped out while on the crutches (not at her place). I totally deserved that injury.

Biggest lie ever told to me: I just got out of a 3 year relationship with my boss. Why did the relationship end? Because he got MARRIED a year ago. Not to me. To his fiance he claimed he was with BEFORE we got together but instead he has been with the past 15 years. He "lived with his brother" and we were looking at condo's together, then, instead, he got his own apartment that he filled with furniture he bought on craig'slist, and even called me the night he got married (new year's eve 2008) to tell me he loved me. The worst part is, I still don't hate him. I'm trying to, but I'm so lonely and he was my best friend, so I'm having a hard time doing so.

Worst lie I ever told? Maybe calling in sick to work when I was 16 saying my grandma had died. I am still waiting to be struck down for that one.

This feels weird.

When I was in high school I dated this guy I will affectionately call "douchebag." Well, I was head over heels, thought about him every minute, in love with him. He was half asian, and his mom was a crazy mean Korean lady who also happened to be the vice principal of our high school.

She hated me, hated that we were dating, and hated that I would never be a nice little Korean girl. She would always try to get him to date other girls from our school. Infront of me. Even friends and team mates.

It hurt me to the core, and the night I found out about him cheating on me, I almost jumped off a freeway over ramp on to the freeway.

I was suicidal for several years after that, and required some major psychiatric help.

Looking back, I am so happy I chickened out, but I will never forgive him or his mother, and would punch him in the nose if I could.

I have run background checks on her and her husband. I know more about her then her friends probably do. I know their phone numbers, address, employers and kids names and birthdays.

And I have never met her before.

Ever.

It started just knowing her name and her parents address. The rest was a result of the internet and very skilled detective work.

Several months ago, I messaged her from my real myspace asking if she was his Ex. When she noticed that I was his fiance, and that he survived the breakup and moved on with his life (she cheated on him), she became insanely jealous.

Now, my myspace tracker tells me that she visits my page 2-3 times daily, so I purposefully string her along by updating my mood and photos of myself so she can have something to look at since my profile is private. I relish every minute of it.

No one knows this, not even my fiance. But he was rather curious when she texted him congratulating him on his engagement and trying to start talking to him again.

oh, and I am not some psycho crazy person who would ever do her harm, its just turned into a very weird hobby.

I just flunked out of grad school, and I really don't fucking care. I hated the program, and can't wait to NOT be in school anymore.

I spent a night in the drunk tank. It was horrible. I'll never forget what jail was like, especially since I'm super claustrophobic. There are only a handful of people who know about it. I know it's pretty common, but I think of that night as when I really, really reached a low point with my drinking. I'm lucky I wasn't raped that night.

I was treated badly by my family, they always laughed at me and put me down, my brother would beat me up bad and my parents would ignore it. They praised him and dumped on me. Five years ago I won a state lottery, kept it quiet and didn't tell anyone in my family. I told them I got a job in Florida and moved away. Since then my Dad has lost his business and now he and my Mom struggle financially. My brother is going through a divorce and his wife is screwing him for every penny he's got, sometimes I feel guilty especially when my Mom says I turned out better than she thought I would. They don't visit so I never worry about them seeing my 'toys', but every once in a while I think I should send them some money but I don't.

This is absolutely amazing. The lies run the gamut from benign to outrageous. I can't wait to check in later.

Great experiment.

I got out of a week of class and midterms because I told all of my teachers my aunt had died. I even made a fake obituary. It was horrible. The reason I did it was for Greek week in college. Ughhhhhh I'm going to hell....

I always always always make up stories to my coworkers about how much I party and have fun. How social I am..the whole bit.

The truth is, I suffer from such severe social anxiety, I hardly ever leave my house. I have friends, but I flake out on them all the time. I've used nearly every excuse. My self-esteem is terrible. It takes a huge toll on me to even get in my car to go to the gym. I feel like such a fake, with the blonde hair, blue eyes, and big smile. Which is why people buy my stories.

I couldn't hate myself more.

And the guy I really like is under the impression that I hate him because I avoid eye contact or any type of contact with him. He'd be floored if he knew how I felt about him. Sadly, I'll never tell him because I don't have the courage. I could probably have him, but the insecurities will forever hold me back. I don't know if there's enough therapy to ever pull me out of this funk.

I wasn't like this until about three years ago. Not sure why, and it's gotten even worse.

My parents had a crappy marriage. My dad was a malingering bastard and my mom was too weak to get rid of him. My mom supported the family and in the later years often accused my dad of stealing money from their accounts. He always talked his way out of the accusations. Over the years, my mom became a dominating shrew, threating to toss my dad out but she never followed through.
Thirty years into the marriage, as my dad's health failed and he became physically unable to care for himself I found out she had become physically abusive to him. I intervened and took over his care. He passed away a short time later. My mom insisted I clean out his possessions almost immediately after his death. She refused to help. She said to be on the look out for any cash and give it to her.
As I was cleaning out his car I found several thousand dollars hidden in the trunk. I took the money and never told my mom I found it.

Biggest lie ever told: "It's not all about how big it is, it's more about what you know how to do with it "
*rollseyes*
Biggest lie ever told to me:
Until I was 21 I thought my dad was just that. I found out that he's not my biological father... the whole mess is convoluted but the bottomline is the first part of my life was a lie. I thought there was something wrong with me because of the difference in the way my brother and I were treated to the extent of trying to actually be a boy because I thought my being a girl why my dad hated me...it turns out he doesn't hate me he's just an asshole! Go figure!

Biggest lie told to me: my husband told me that if we didn't marry in his church his parents wouldn't come to the wedding. I caved because his family is bigger than mine and was paying for more. Turns out his parents couldn't care less where we got married and my husband thought he could finally win his dad's love and approval by doing that. No dice. His dad is still an arrogant asshole who tells him he's stupid and worthless (not true my husband is well educated and makes a lot of money) and and the FIL tells people that my sister-in-law is a secretary when she's really a global director of a very big company. I can't wait until the day he dies. Which should be soon since he's got major health problems.
