Sharing personal information brings people closer together. But how do you know when you’ve gone too far—or when someone else has ulterior motives?

Is telling your intended bed mate "I love you" a deception akin to stating "no condom needed, I have only had one partner and I have tested negative for every disease possible." when you actually have AIDS? Of course not.
How about a supposedly straight married man, seducing his best male friend by getting him drunk and saying "buddy, I have always loved you" when he is actually just very hot and you want to have sex with him?
Even better, "sure honey, if you give me oral sex after I orgasm, I will return the favor." Of course after a man has a orgasm, the last thing he wants to do is preform oral sex on a woman. He would rather go to sleep or say goodbye.
This is the same mentality that is going on now that equates total allegations, with no evidence, that a man molested a woman, decades ago to a reported rape.
I don't no a normal person who hasn't lied in some manner to obtain sex. Most of the lies are so superficial as to be part of the mating process.
