You might like to lump all men into a ball of inescapable dishonesty, flippantly declaring them liars. Broadly speaking, you’d be right. Mankind has been lying to one another since the dawn of time. Human ancestors lied to survive and navigate complex social structures.
Even in those early days, lies were used as forms of entertainment and this culture of lying continues throughout the world, each generation becoming more sophisticated at painting untruths.
While no magic can ever tell you if a man or woman is being completely honest, you can be sure that whenever someone lies, they do so for a reason. Sometimes you can get behind the reason, like a lie told as a prank or in jest. Other times you are not trying to hear that. Relationship lies tend to be more the latter but that doesn’t change the fact that your guy has a perfectly rationalized reason to lie.
Peep the seven reasons men lie in relationships:
“Protect your feelings”
A man will go out of his way to keep his girl from feeling pain, anger or heaven forbid, tears. To keep his lady from crying, he’ll even lay his moral integrity on the line and tell her something that isn’t completely true.
“Honey, do these pants make me look fat?”
“No, baby, your bum is as tight as it was in high school.”
