Re: White lies, Lies, or Honesty?
The exact quote you are thinking of comes from the Game, and it is "It isn't lying, it's flirting". I would pretty much say that I alternate between lies, white lies, and truths when it comes to flirting. Depending on how you use all three of them, they all do work.
One recent example involved me using a personal ghost story as a hook for a conversation. The incident never happened, but it sure as hell worked when catching a girl's interest.
