SWEET LIE (swēt ˈlī) : A white lie told during courting, to make oneself appear ‘sweeter’ than they actually are.
It’s the 21st century and your identity is as hot-swappable as a homescreen. Want to be over 6’ tall? Tap-tap, done. Nunchuck philosopher? Click. Done. Author of a best-selling vampire cookbook? Why not. Whatever gets the swipe gets the hype. It’s just a date, maybe a kiss… but watch your back. Because if you think you’re the only one fancifying your persona, you’ve got something else coming.
In this series, we taste some of the sweetest little lies that have ever been told. Don’t say we didn't warn you.
