It’s no secret that men can be compulsive liars. Sometimes, for us women, it can be hard to deal with on a day-to-day basis. Especially if we don’t understand why they do it in the first place! To help you figure out why you tend to catch your guy lying to you more often than not, here are the top 5 reasons why men lie:
Reason #1.) He doesn’t want to hurt your feelings. Though this may not be the right thing for him to do, his intentions are probably good. Guys aren’t completely incapable of understanding girls- they understand that we are very sensitive creatures! Women get hurt pretty easily and all he may be trying to do is protect you because he cares.
Reason #2.) He is too lazy and all he wants to do is avoid drama. Guys are not usually equipped to handle drama and, to be quite honest, are just too lazy to want to deal with it. He might lie to you because he doesn’t want to take the time out of his day to battle it out and find a resolution to whatever the problem at hand is.
Reason #3.) He is cheating on you. This isn’t the most common occurrence of the reasoning behind a fella’s lie-telling- So, don’t be too quick to assume on this! Cheaters are known for their ability to spit out lies more often than they tell the truth. A guy is going to lie about a lot of things if he is seeing another woman behind your back.
Reason #4.) He only wants one thing. You know… That thing… Yes, sex. Most guys will do just about anything to get some loving from you. Men will lie until they have a nose longer than Pinocchio’s just to get what they want!
Reason #5.) He doesn’t want to do chores. It’s definitely well-known that men aren’t famous for their love of domestic work. So, they lie to get out of responsibilities like doing the dishes, running to the market for bread or taking the car for a wash. Unfortunately, most boys would rather watch sports or play video-games instead!
