  1. How do you believe someone you love very much after they lie to you about something trivial

  1. Hello,
    I have a question about work-relationship. What I mean is that there is a guy in my work place that I am interested in and I feel from the way that he acts that he may be interested also, However, he seems to be very shy and I am shy myself. We talk a lot about work and projects, and we have a lot of common ideas, etc. We even have very similar future goals. However, I do not know how to deal with it. What is the best way to signal to him or make it easier for him to approach me. I gave him a little box of cookies for christmas that he liked and was happy about it, etc, but what else can be done.
    Eagerly waiting for your answer.

  1. Hi Joan, there are many reasons for that lie. I agree that it causes you to doubt your trust on him. However, some times, NOT ALWAYS, there is a good reason behind that. You have to find the reason and try to improve the communication between the two of you. One big reason for lies is the lack of communication (healty, understanding, non-judgmental, and respectful). Some times, a partner feels uncomfortable talking about a topic or a subject or an event, etc, because they feel that their partners will not understand them or judge them, etc, and instead of brining up the subject, they hide it by telling lies. Work on your communication and building trust on each other. I have seen improvment in many of my friends' relationships. Do not give up, yet. Good luck to you.
