I am Ophira Eisenberg with the LoveFeed. You look amazing. Have you been hitting the gym? White lies. You’re on your resume and all over your MySpace page. According to Psychology today, almost 50% of dating couples lie to each other two to three times a week. And no, it’s not about sex, seriously. It’s about books and travel. You mean, you didn’t read Angels and Demons on the beach in Antigua? It’s over. Relationshipexpert@sheknows.com emphasize that the cracks of any good relationship is honest communication. But you can tell a white lie for once and a while, right? Just feel the difference between a harmless feed and a potentially damaging deception. White lies are not saying you’re at the game when you are really banging your assistant. And that you’re Batman. That would be awesome. Sure exaggerate how great the gift is. How tasty dinner was or how big things are to hide in the moments. Interestingly enough as Zogby poll reveal that 85% of respondents in their 20s, always wanted the truth. As opposed to only 79% in their 50s and 60s. As you get older, you realize you just want to hear what you want to hear.
