If you believe scientific studies (and you should, for the most part), men lie at least 6 times every day. Not all these lies are bad, mind you. Some have noble reasons, others are said to spare your feelings. There are, however, men who lie for selfish or toxic reasons, and these are the men that you should not get involved with.
How do they get away with so many lies? They have help. Women don’t pick up on the subtle gestures that give them away, or we’re so blinded by their charm and love, that we ignore the signs. To show you what you might have overlooked, we’ve collected 10 common lies that men tell us and we usually take for granted.
#1. He trusts you to go out with your girlfriends, but without him
Unlikely. In reality, he doesn’t trust you that much, and he’s not particularly comfortable with you going out to have fun without him. But they are your girlfriends, and he does want you to enjoy yourself, while letting you think that he trusts you.
#2. He’s been too busy to respond to your text messages
This might be true. Sometimes. No person is busy all the time, so you might want to investigate the situation if this keeps happening.
#3. He isn’t jealous of your ex boyfriends
Riiiiight. We might trust him for the most part, but not if he tells you that he has never compared himself to your ex-boyfriend(s), or wondered what they did to make you like them.
#4. He doesn’t mind listening to you nag about all your drama
If that were true, your man would be Prince Charming. Honestly, you can’t expect the guy to tell you the truth if you nag him with your drama all the time. Even your girlfriends would find you insufferable.
#5. He says he doesn’t look at other girls anymore
Has he developed blindness since you two met? Of course he will look at other girls. It’s in his nature to, and you should accept that. But looking and touching are two very different things.
#6. He enjoys hanging out with your friends
Yes. Talking about accessories and office gossip is exactly how he envisioned the perfect outing. Seriously though, you’ve got to love him for trying. He cares about you so much that he lets you think that your friends are the best.
#7. He doesn’t mind whenever you get wasted
If you believe this, then you’ve never seen yourself drunk. What normal person would like to clean after your mess? He’d like to have a good time too, so he lets you believe whatever makes you happy and relaxed.
#8. He has to work late tonight
Perhaps for one or two nights. Maybe more if he’s working on a big project. But if this late-night excuse persists, feel free to become suspicious.
#9. He’s OK with you arriving late
Nobody is ok with you arriving late. When you do that you’re totally disrespecting the other person. He loves you enough not to tell you this, but his time is as valuable as yours. Learn to respect that.
#10. He doesn’t watch porn online
Unless you’re some kind of sex goddess who is able to “creatively” attend to his needs at any given time of the day or night, he is going to watch porn to satisfy his needs when you’re not there.
