Cockney slang for telling lies is porkie pies. Everyone, at some point in their life, has been told a big porkie pie.
Whether it’s a friend or a cheating partner, being betrayed by a liar is hurtful. When you are not a deceitful person it is shocking when someone lies to you because you just aren’t expecting it.
Once someone has violated your trust the relationship may never be the same depending on the size of the lie. You need to decide how much effort you want to put into sorting out the situation, is this a person you want in your life or does the lie make it a deal breaker? It’s true that people treat you like allow them to treat you so you do need to let the person know you are aware of their lack of honesty.
It may not be worth wasting your time trying to sort out a relationship with someone who didn’t value you enough to tell you the truth in the first place. It’s not up to you to educate people on how to be a decent human being, the person should have figured that for themselves long ago.
