    Big lie- I'm really a man, I'm having an affair etc.

    Little Lie- I'm a natural redhead

    A little lie indicates someone is still growing into what they will become. A big lie indicates they have arrived.

    I don't see any difference as both are destructive and show a lack of respect. Unless you enjoy being lied to it is best to do something NOW, not later when you may feel trapped.

    A big lie: No, I'm not having an affair; no I've never been married before

    A little lie: Yes, you look fantastic in that dress.

    Their size, and whether or not the first letter is capitalized.

    Big lie - The aliens left someone else's underwear in the refrigerator.

    little lie - The aliens took that last piece of cheesecake you wanted out of the refrigerator.

    Little lie: that doesn't make you look fat

    Big lie: I didn't cheat on you with my coworker

    a little lie is used to cover the big lies... in the end... "it's not cheating unless you get caught" . so i guess "it's not lieing unless she finds out"
