Iâm in Love With a Liar!

Is your lover a pathological liar?

that unless you’re prepared to become a walking/talking polygraph machine, you’re better off ending the relationship and cutting your losses.  And for the record, I do believe that a person that is committed to changing their behavior can and often does. But psychiatrists will be the first to admit that pathological lying is a behavior that isn’t easily changed.  At the end of the day, it’s up to the individual to decide what they will or won’t deal with in a relationship but in my opinion, your mental health and sense of security is simply too big a price to pay.
