Feeling like your being lied to...

Hey guys was just wondering if anyone ever feels like when they talk to people they are just lying to you just to see how much they can get you to believe so they can go joke about it, like there is some kind of big joke on you and your the only one who doesnt know?
I get this feeling alot with the people at my work im not sure why because they all seem like cool people, it just makes it that much harder for me to initiate or join in conversations with them.

I know what you mean, I'm afraid to reciprocate in conversations for that reason. I assume they're observing me and making things up to see if I'll really fall for it.

I try not to show too much interest just in case that's what they're doing, but balance it so I don't look rude either.

SA sometimes screws up our sense of perception. Yeah, there are people out there like that, but most do not try to be that way. My friends describe me as "Captain Paranoid" due to the fact that I put the worst possible (for me) spin on everything I see, hear, or witness.

Just chill a bit...

Wow, I feel exactly like this only its with close friends. I guess it has to do with trust issues. I guess we are like "Why would they talk to me, they must be out to laugh at us". We need to love our self first.

I mostly think it's strangers and acquantances and doctors who lie and I think they must be talking behind my back about the way I speak or act. I don't think this all the time lol but sometimes I think they can be lying. My close friends I almost never think they're lying.

It's part of the trust factor with SA. I am beginning to find this out.

I'm quick to assume people are making fun of me just for a laugh. I'm sure they usually aren't, but the feelings of humilation after you realize you've been duped are horrible.

I have a tendency to act casually about everything - from talking about the weather to very odd topics of conversation. If I figure out that I'm being teased, being casual about it helps me turn it into a joke. I am known for having a very dry sense of humor, so it works pretty well for me. ("Oh, you found out your uncle was a serial killer. How interesting. What are you doing this weekend?")

In my old days in the chat rooms people used to do the same with (usually they know each other since some time,,, simply ignore them! they will stop soon & ur job is more important than anything else
