And once again Hexi's last comment is on point. Self deception is where all deception begins, in my experience.
Why would someone pretend to like someone they hate, besides the obvious things, like conning someone for money, sex, etc? Or seeking someone's approval? Or *fill in the blank* self delusionally self centered reason?
Yeah, your right.
I don't pretend to like people I 'hate' but I am nice to people I 'hate'... Most the time... :)
Being kind or nice to someone you 'hate', does that constitute pretending to like them?
Thanks for the input, everybody! You gave me a lot to think about! :)
Sorry for the late response, btw--my sister wanted her laptop back. (She's such a good sibling, letting me use it as much as she does!)
