Lies, lies and some more lies on top of those lies. If you think that your relationship is 100% honesty, we are sorry to burst your bubble but you are wrong. Your boyfriend lies more often than you know and they might not be significant lies but they are still lying. They might not affect your relationship but you sure need to know what they are in order to not fall for them and make a fool of yourself.
Every man tells these 15 lies, or at least some of them, at some point in his life, look out!
1. I’ve never been so in love:
He is probably telling the truth when he says that he loves you but he is probably lying when he says that he has never loved anyone so much unless of course, you are the first woman he has ever been with. If he has been with other women, chances are that he said the same thing to them and is repeating it to make you feel good. Don’t doubt his love due to this lie, just know that he HAS loved other women before and the statement is not true.
2. My friends like you, totally:
In the beginning of a relationship or when you two start going out if he tells you that his friends like you, he is probably trying to make you happy by telling that lie. Guys’ friends really don’t care about the girl they date and even if they do, they are very less likely to actually like her. They are, in fact, a little bummed about how he cannot show up at their night-out because he has to go out with his girlfriend’.
3. I fell asleep:
This is the cutest yet the stupidest lie men tell when they actually want’ to sleep. It is impossible for a person to actually fall asleep when your replies literally take no more than ten seconds. So if he said he slept the other night amid conversation when you were ever so quick with the replies, it means that he did not want to talk to you, that sleep means more to him than you do. Offensive or not, it is the truth. Men should really stop telling it.
4. You are the only girl who texts me:
Big eye roll on this one.
Whatever you believe in; God or no God, do not make the mistake of believing this lie. No guy has only one girl texting him, unless of course he a 12-year-old with a new phone. If it is the beginning of your tenure with him and he bluntly tells you that you are the only girl who texts him, please do not fall for it. Guys keep all conversations active to have future potential girlfriends; it does not mean they are ever ready to cheat on you. Although if he has other girls’ texting him even when he has committed to you, he has got some explaining to do.
5. I don’t talk to my ex:
Exes can be pretty annoying for both the guy and you. They are always lurking in the shadows. It is not necessary that your guy is always talking to your ex, no, he finds her annoying too. But when he is, he will precisely make sure that you never know he is. He knows what your reaction will be and he really does not want to see it. For whatever messed up reasons he is replying to the woman who dumped him or was dumped by him, he, quite obviously, does not want you to know.
6. You’re hotter:
He tells this lie for the benefit of your self-esteem and we can’t say he does wrong by doing so. You know that the girl who just walked by is ten times hotter than you and there is no denying it, but he will conjure up the guts to tell you the lie you secretly want to hear: you are way hotter than her. Maybe you do not want to hear the lie and maybe you want to hear the truth told with a balanced tone that does not make you feel bad about anything. But what does the poor guy know?
7. My ex is crazy:
She might as well be but chances are she is not. It is the regret of dating her or the way of getting over her that makes him say that she is crazy. She was probably just another average girl he dated and it did not go too well and he is bummed about it. He will probably talk about you the same way if you two ever split. So when he says his ex is crazy, he is probably exaggerating.
8. I love your family:
He does not exactly hate them but he is pretty much telling a lie when he says that he loves your family. He does want to love them like his own family but you know how hard your parents, especially your dad, make it for him. And your little brother who cannot stop interviewing him and the cat who never seems to like him; he will tell you he loves all of them when secretly, he wants to run away from them as far as possible.
9. You look perfect:
You sure look pretty but sometimes when you overdose on makeup and wear the outfit the wrong way, he chooses to keep the environment positive by telling the lie: you look perfect! He knows better than to have you hate him for not liking your hard work and he certainly does not want you two to be late for dinner. Mind you, he does not think you are ugly or anything, just a safe road that saves you both from having that last-minute fight.
10. Sure, you can come:
He loves spending time with you but he hates it when you try to come along when he is going out with his friends. Everybody likes to have some space and some time away from the relationship. Guy time has to be guy time, purely, and you ask to contaminate that environment by asking to go along. Now what choice does he have? He tells a lie and says that he is okay with you coming along although he is secretly hoping that something comes up and you have to cancel on them.
11. My mom loves you:
We think this is the easiest lie to detect. You did laugh while reading My mom loves you didn’t you? Moms are never happy with the quality of women their sons go out with. No matter how hard you try to be good enough for him and his family, there will always be a little part in his mom’s heart that despises you. He will, of course, tell you that she absolutely adores you for your ways and the fact that you love him but that is the only half-truth.
12. I am listening:
He can watch a 90 minutes long football match but as soon as your story starts having details that take too long’ to tell, he stops listening. When you ask him if he is paying attention, he will tell you the lie: Yeah, sure, I am listening. He will say he is all ears when he is not and does not want to be. You should try to keep it short too so that he actually listens and reacts. If you cannot help but tell the whole story, get ready to be told the great glorious lie.
13. I will call you again:
Oh, the master-lie of all the lies! How often have guys not called you when they precisely said they would at the end of the date? A survey should be made and all the guys who have not told this lie should be awarded with a cheeseburger for their honesty because boy, that is rare!
While you wait for his call the next day, he is probably sleeping, hung-over from the after-party. Do not believe this lie and do not get worked up when he does not call.
14. This is delicious:
Your father must have told this lie too when you cooked the terrible-tasting pasta that first time. Men tell this lie quite frequently and they should actually be appreciated for it. They are eating something that does not taste good at all AND telling you it does so that your heart is not broken. This attitude deserves some appreciation. Although, later, they should tip you a little on how the food needed a little’ more salt.
15. You are the best:
He is very likely to say it in bed to get you in spirits. This lie is half evil and half good; he just wants you to feel good about yourself and, at the same time, wants you to do better every time. Just imagine him saying You are the best I have ever had after you are done. How well does that feel?
