At one point in your relationship you’ve probably held something back, been dishonest, or told a little white lie that you didn’t think would hurt anything.
Almost everyone has done it at some point or other so you don’t have to feel as though you’re alone. In fact, most of the lies that women tell men are the same!
So what are some of the lies women often tell men? Here are the five most common:
1. You love his family
Let’s face it, not everyone gets along with his or her in-laws. However, if there’s one thing you’ve probably already learned it’s that you just can’t get between a man and his mama. So when asked, of course you love her!
2. Size doesn’t matter
We’re not just talking about what goes on in between the sheets, either. So he gained a few extra kilos - you’d never tell him that he needs to hit the gym. Nope, you tell him you love him just the way he is.
This can be a dangerous lie – sometimes it’s only the people who are closest to us who will be honest with us if we are overweight or in need of a push to the gym, so make sure you don’t spare his feelings at the expense of his health.
3. You’ll never bring up an old argument again
Sure, you might promise that, but in the heat of the next argument, you might not be able to help yourself.
4. You never think of your ex
Of course, you try not to think about him but there are things, if you are being truly honest about it, that your ex just did a little…better.
5. You really want to have sex
There are always nights when you’re tired, you don’t feel sexy, or you’re really into a show or movie and don’t want to stop what you’re doing. Yet, you don’t want to hurt his feelings so you go along with him. After all, sometimes it just takes less energy to go ahead than to make up an explanation.
The same goes for climaxing – sometimes it’s just not going to happen and you know he won’t rest until it does, so you…pretend. It’s not that you’re putting on a show or anything, you just let him believe that you had as good a time as he did!
Most of the lies women often tell men are harmless and natural
It’s the big things that matter the most and the important thing is that you are able to have healthy, honest conversations with him about the things that truly matter in your relationship.
If you have to tell a little lie now and then to make someone else happy, why not? It’s for the greater good!
