My Girlfriend is a Pathological Liar

Dear Hilda,

My Girlfriend is a pathological liar. She lies about almost everything, even things that are not necessary. I can’t tell whether she is joking or serious. When I catch her telling a lie, she covers up by saying she was joking. I am worried that she may be unfaithful easily.
I really like her and not ready to break up with her, what can I do?
Dan, Lagos


Hello Dan, the thing about lying a lot is that if repeated frequently enough, it becomes the truth to that person only. Lying has never helped anyone, especially as we all know that the truth will surely come out one day. If you really feel your girl is worth the fight, have a very serious talk with her, tell her how you feel and what your worries are. Tell her that you are willing to call it quits with her if she doesn’t change her ways. Watch her for a while and see if there are changes.

Wishing you the best!

I envision Hilda’s Shoulder to be a relationship park-a place you go to learn, vent and share. I have another understanding of the word relationship -I don’t think it is for people dating only. A marriage is a relationship too, and one which needs great rela- tions in the SHIP called home!
Hilda’s Shoulder is a place where we virtually hold hands like - real friends should. If you want to come anonymously...we understand ..still come! Hilda’s shoulder is here for you!
