I am a bit gullible my family say, always believe what I am told.  For instance when I was told babies came out of the tummy like a cash register opening when you pressed the tummy button I believed that for years.  I am a little wiser now but still tend to believe until proven otherwise.

Yes I have and do quite often.  One I remember when I was about nine.  A friend's older brother was in the navy and had some tattoos on his arms.  He was off on leave and he told me that when he had a bath or got his arms wet his tattoos would rise up his arms onto his shoulders so they didn't get wet - I was fascinated and believed him but when he had gone back to sea my friend said he had told her it wasn't true, and she could tell me when he had gone.  I was quite disappointed.  :)

I have been taken advantage of with little white lies more times than I can remember and I still don't learn.

I think if you are someone like me who likes to trust folk first and not to judge people so quickly its easy sometimes to be taken in. Yet once bitten by someone its time to go for a long walk.

Me to ... I'm very naive , I tend to take people on trust ,and try to believe what they say . and I try to be truthful,
but mm I have told many white lies myself , as no one likes to hurt people's feelings , so I bend the truth lol
Enjoy your day  :) .

Let's face it, it's not uncommon, is it?

"I promise that I will love you for ever..."     "Oh! You look great in that outfit..." 

"Suits you, sir..."      "Satisfaction guaranteed, or your money back..."
Religion is for those who don't want to go to hell.

Spirituality is for those who have already been there.

Very many thanks fellow members and guest for alerting me to that phrase again. Was straightaway put in mind of the early rock 'n' roll song covered by Bill Haley and Tommy Steele when popular music took a truly giant step away from what was then the usual fayre. And - WOW - didn't we like it!! But the serious point is - am the very first to like banter - however, like most people I guess - am optimistic and think of the positive when meeting others. And when (if) I find out that have bin led up the garden path, I just feel sorry that such people have to resort to that sort of thing merely to - presumably - try and feel superior. I don't do it myself, and to me others that do just come out of it looking complete clowns.

I've never fallen for a fib, hook line and sinker.  I reckon I can tell well people are lying.
