hi SV

i think the short answer to this, for me, has been yes. my T has lied to me on occasion and has been economical with the truth on others. we're working on this now, though. i am really pushing her to be as truthful as she can be at all times. i know this is hard for her and goes against her instincts at times, but she is being really great about responding to what i feel i need from her. i should say that she hasn't lied about big stuff, and that part of the reason that i need this from her is that i'm able to tell if she is being evasive or less than completely open with me, so our relationship needs that kind of all out honesty if it's going to work.

can i ask why you're asking this? and have you talked to her about it?

hope you're doing well
