Do you ever suspect that your partner isn’t telling you the truth? These are the most common lies men tell us...
Can you tell when he’s hiding something from you?
Despite their good intentions, sometimes men just can’t help themselves when it comes to keeping things from their partners. The funny thing is, the lies men often tell women are usually pretty similar.
So what are some of the more common lies?
Lie #1. They never think of their exes
Nope, they tell us that their exes are history and they never even cross their minds anymore. On the other hand, would you really want to know the truth in this particular instance? Probably not so we’ll give them a pass on this one.
Lie #2. They like being around your girlfriends
While they probably don’t mind your girlfriends, most men don’t exactly find it entertaining to sit around with you and your gals while you discuss the merits of bikini waxes and debate the differences between the "Real Housewives" series.
Lie #3. They don’t mind you wearing flannel or sweats to bed
Sure, they’re comfortable and you wouldn’t trade them for anything! But when your man says that he likes them too, though, you can bet that he’s being slightly dishonest. Most men are privately picturing their women in something a lot less.
Lie #4. They love your family
Much like women, men have learned that they can’t get between you and your mama. While they might support you when you’re angry at your parents, they would never come right out and tell you that they don’t like them.
Lie #5. They think you’re right
You just had an argument with your sister, best friend, mother, or boss and you immediately run home and tell your partner. They listen, commiserate with you, and help you think of ways to avenge yourself that you will never really carry out.
Do you always think you’re right though? Probably not. They’ll never tell you that, however. They don’t want to start an argument of their own.
The good news is that most of the lies men often tell women are told with good intentions
As long as honesty is prevalent through the majority of the relationship and both partners feel comfortable being honest about the big and important things in their lives there usually isn’t a huge cause for concern.
In fact, sometimes it’s nice knowing that your partner will go out of their way (like a creative little lie about the size of your bum) to make you happy.
