Lies Women Tell Men

Updated on January 20, 2017
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.

Lies Women Tell

According to research, a lot of women lie to men for a number of reasons. Listed below are the categories of common lies women tell men. (Women: Don't get angry. There is an article on common lies men tell women also).

Women Lie About Their Age

Some women lie about their age. The message in America today is "Young is better." Therefore, some women constantly lie about their age to men if they can get away with it. The word "old" and "middle-aged" are dirty words to women.

Women Lie About Their Weight

Many women lie about their education. They either build it up or play it down, depending on the situation. This lie about education is told to men because women don't want education to be a stumbling block in their relationship.

Women Lie About Their Job

It is not uncommon for women to lie to men about where they work or what they do for a living. They lie either because they know they have a better job than the man, and they don't want to run him off. On the other hand, the woman might have such a meager job that she is embarrassed to let the man know because he might think she doesn't measure up to his standards.

Women Lie About Past Relationships

Women lie about the depth of their friendship with other women because men often become jealous of such friendships.

Women don't tell the truth their past romances. Women know this and tell lies about it to the men they think they might have a future with.

Women fib about how helpless they are. Most men feel uncomfortable with super-secure women. So women play down how capable they are, or how well they can take care of themselves. They exaggerate or fabricate their weaknesses.

Women don't tell the truth how they spend their money. They spend much more time and money on cosmetics, beauty parlors, jewelry and perfume than they are willing to admit to men. The prices women have to pay for beauty are just incomprehensible to men.

Women Lie About Her Enjoyment For Sports

Today just as many women as men love sports. But just in case a woman doesn't like the sports her mate likes, she will lie about enjoying sports. A lot of women will swear they love baseball, football or hockey when, in fact, they don't. They lie because they think it's something men want to hear.

Rather than hurting their mate's feelings, many women lie to men about how they feel after making love.

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

      I can definitely agree with these 'lies'. I may not necessarily follow any of these myself, but I can totally see and understand why some women do this...I try to be as honest as I can with my partner though.

      "Rather than hurting their mate's feelings, many women lie to men about how they feel after making love."

      The thing is many men know they do... And we wonder why relationships flounder.

      Got me on the weight... I always let them guess and then just say "thank you" cause they always guess less than I really weigh... maybe we've all trained them to see a different number when they look at us!?

      Again another good hub. It is the same thing. If women will lie about these types of things, what else we they lie about and thus the trust issue. Good hub.

      Lady_E: That shows what I'll do for a few pennies :0) So women shouldn't tell me their secrets because I will sell them out! I also told the men's secrets in a similar article.

      LOL, no, what I meant was I felt good about myself for only being guilty of ONE of the list. The last one I don't feel too guilty about either though, as sometimes it is nicer not to hurt someone's feelings which is just plain cruel.

      mistyhorizon2003: Thanks for reading and commenting even to the extent of being honest about the last one. Glad to know you are feeling good about yourself in reference to that last category.

      Great hub and you list some excellent and valid examples of how women lie to men. I can honestly say I have only ever been guilty of having lied about the last one though, so I actually feel quite good about myself right now :)
