I just recently realized that I lie alot. But it's only to one particular friend I always lie to. I don't lie to my other friends, only her.I don't know why I do it. Is this bad? I know it's wrong to lie, but is it bad that I only lie to her? I don't like about everything, just some things. Like sex and stuff like that. She'll ask me if I've done this or that and I'll say yeah cuz I know she has done it. I know she has done it becuz she did it with her b.f while I was at their house. I dunno why I lie to her about sex and stuff, but I just can't seem to come out and tell her "no I haven't done this and that". I guess I don't want to have that feeling like I'm the least expierenced one or the "child" when I talk to her. But other friends I can just talk to them and say "no I haven't done that". Why do I lie to ONLY her? I mean I catch myself doing it and thinking "why do I lie to you so much" and it really makes me upset. So any advice on what to do?

Clearly, you are doing this because you are insecure and you want to impress this person at all costs.

So why does this person's opinion matter to you so much? Are you afraid she won't like you if you just act like yourself? Do you really want to be friends with someone you can't act naturally around?
