Why Do Men Lie So Much
We all lie irrespective of gender, but some experts claim that men lie more than women. Of course, other experts claim the opposite. I am not sitting in judgment on who is worse, but since we are talking of men here, let us just focus on them and the reasons why men lie. There is at least one reason for which men lie across the spectrum. Even if the man has a supposed good image of being an honest person, you just can't trust men when it comes to this. The thing I am talking about, of course, is sex. Well, haven't you come across men who would say just about anything to get laid. You have right? They just would lie between their teeth and they just don't care if the lies are oh so obvious and apparent. These lies are easy to identify, but then again, some women just don't see through them - lucky men!!
Sometimes, the lies are just so ridiculous - you can definitely get a good laugh out of them. But, as dumb as their lies might be - some women do fall for it. Reason why they keep trying their luck with lousy lies. When a man says, "you are the most beautiful woman I've met," - do you really believe him?? You'd like to and its good to hear - but more often than not, they don't really mean it - especially if their ultimate intention is to get lucky. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if sex turned out to be the number one reason for lying among men. I am not saying all men fit this stereotype. There are many good men out there who genuinely mean what they say, but then watch out for the smooth talkers who just compliment for selfish motives.
Sometimes, some men just lie because they have a false sense of ego and they hate admitting that they don't know!! Do you expect statements like, "I don't know how to do that," from them?? They like to pretend that they know all. They would like to fix things - even if they don't know how to go about it. Saying "I don't know" is just not an option. If you ask them, "do you know how to do that?" - even if they don't know - they would tell you - Yes. Men can drive around hours before asking for directions. Of course, asking someone is an affront to their ability as a man. They like to pretend they know better.
Reasons Why Men Lie And Why They Lie
Another reason why some men lie is to avoid conflicts. If they know they would have to argue with their spouse/girlfriend/boss, etc, they'd rather lie and avoid that potential conflict situation. Some men lie online all the time. They pretend on the Internet that they are someone they really are not. Why? Because, they can get away with it. They'd like to believe no one is watching them and they are perfectly safe assuming various personalities online. These kind of men are like the proverbial chameleon, changing their colors multiple times during their online sessions with different women.
Would men ever admit to what they really do online?? Men love the anonymity of the online situation and they love lying about their activities online because no one can really question them without providing hard evidence of their doubtful activities. Again, not all men are like that, but the ones I've come across most definitely have been. A personal word of caution to women in online romances - accept your online man's word with a pinch of salt. They may say they are this and they are that, but be prepared to find out eventually they are neither. To some men, online romancing is a game, a bit of "harmless" fun, so watch where you tread and keep your guard up at all times!!
Well, now that we know a few reasons why men lie - the more important question would be if you can catch men lying. I always watch for body language. Folded arms across his chest are a good indication that the man is lying, but if only catching a liar was so simple. Also, liars don't make good eye contact when they are lying - this one is pretty reliable. To summarize, men are right at home lying!! It almost seems to come naturally to them. They have almost perfected it to an art form. You almost have a grudging appreciation of how fully they've mastered the art of lying. Here is a disclaimer, lest I forget - some women may exhibit all or some of the characteristics described above and I am in no way saying all men are like this!!
