This topic has been a hot-button subject for a number of years. Causing a lot of women to have discussions which often differ in opinions and views. In many cases men lie for a various number of reasons just like other people in general.
Some may argue that people who lie have a sociological issue that may be deep-rooted from experience that they have had in their lives. So today I will share the top five reasons why men lie.
1. To Avoid Getting Caught:
Nobody wants to get caught doing something they know they shouldn’t and have to face the music. This is human nature and it’s true for both men and women. However, some men have a certain way of misconstruing their words to cause confusion and in some cases to put the blame on their partner.
2. Enhance or Improve Themselves:
Many times men lie because they want to Impress a woman. You could almost look at this one as a compliment (ALMOST). This often happens because the guy might not feel “good enough” as he is to be his true self.
3. For Sex or The Chance to Get Sex:
Most men realize that simply saying that all he wants is sex is not always the most effective approach to getting it. It may work sometimes, but typically it will work against him. This is why men lie to get sex.
4. To Win an Argument:
Many times men lie to win an argument or to get want they want. By using reverse psychology or lying as a tool to get what they want.
Whether on a first date or while enduring your one-year anniversary, one could delicately talk himself up. Often times men use this tactic while at the club or bar trying to start up a conversation.
5. Past Experiences from Past Relationships:
Sometimes men have had negative experiences with their exes and have been conditioned to lie to avoid drama. For example, if a man always got flack from his ex-girlfriend for spending too much time with the guys, he might have become accustomed to lying about it.
So now, he might tell you he’s staying late at the office when he’s really going out for happy hour with his friends.
