Lies Men Tell Women

Updated on August 5, 2016

 

According to research a lot of men lie to women for a number of reasons. Listed below are the categories of common lies men tell me. (Men: Don't get angry. Click on the article in the box at the bottom to read about the common lies women tell men.)

Man lying with fingers crossed behind back

It is a common practice to cross your fingers behind your back when you lie. You know you are lying, but the person you are talking to thinks you are telling the truth.

HEIGHT
Men lie about their height. If a man is just an inch or two under six feet tall, he will usually claim to a six-footer especially if the women he admires is tall.

BEING LOST
Men lie about being lost. They usually hate to ask anyone for direction if there's a woman sitting next to him in the car. It is like admitting that he is incompetent.

PAST ROMANCES
Men lie about their past romances. They do not tell the truth about romantic past, and then they lie that they don't mind that their mate has a romantic past.

THEIR AUTOMOBILE
Men lie about not knowing what is wrong with the car. To admit that they don't know is an admission of being unmanly or inadequate.

SPORTS ABILITY
While women lie that they like sports when they don't, men lie about their sports ability. To have just sat on the bench means they were not capable of playing. So they fabricate a lot and say they were the team star.

BEING AFRAID
Men lie about being afraid. More men than women are afraid of flying. Instead of admitting they are afraid, men often make up excuses why he shouldn't fly. Instead of flying, men might say, "I'd rather take the scenic route."

MISCELLANEOUS THINGS MEN LIE ABOUT
Men rather lie than tell a woman they do not like what she is wearing. Men do not admit to being anxious overcalling a woman for a date. Men lie to women about their health. If they are ill, hey seldom admit it. Men lie about lying. Men deny that they lie at all.

These are just a few of the common lies men tell women. You might not agree with some of them. And then, you might have others to add. If so, please leave a comment to let me know you were here.

      So very true. I feel that these lies are the beginnings of a very poor relationship because if they will lie to you about these things, what else will they lie to you about. Thus the trust issue. Good hub

      Dian'swords4u: I am so glad you posted a comment on this article. There are more responses on my companion article "Lies Women Tell Men" than on this one. It is amazing that women are reading about the lies women tell men instead of the lies men tell women. I guess women want to see if their lie is included.

      Claudin_Dayo, you are absolutely right about this. It is good to know what men would do so we can be prepared for it.

      Nice Hub!

      "Men lie about lying". This is the big one, because nothing makes a man madder than to be a called a liar, even when he and you both know he is doing it.

      Face it sometimes we are glad they do... as in "does my butt look fat/flat in these pant"? Any man in his right mind will lie in a second. *smile*
