Let’s get things straight for one second: everyone lies. Whether you’re a man or woman, you lied at least once in your life. In fact, you probably already lied today. Is this a bad thing? Well, it depends on the reasons behind why women lie.
For example, my ex-boyfriend came to my house to show me his brand new car. Did I like the car? No, I thought it was ridiculous, but, am I going to tell him that? Hell, no. So, I acted excited and astounded by the sound of the engine, saying that his new car is amazing. It was all a lie, every single word. But, he did spend a lot of money on it. Money he couldn’t get back, so there was no point to be a Debbie Downer.
Why women lie
Women lie for a variety of reasons. Because you’re a man, you may not be able to fully understand why we do it. Then again, women probably don’t understand why guys lie about certain things either. So, I’d like to think that we’re even when it comes to lying. But anyway, I don’t want to stray away from the main point: why women lie. Well, here’s 11 reasons why. Your life’s question is now being answered.
#1 She doesn’t want to hurt you. This is obviously a no-brainer. Usually, when people lie, they’re trying to spare your feelings from being hurt. Of course, it usually backfires and ends up in your feelings being even more hurt, but, that’s another story. Maybe she doesn’t like something about you, but, thinks it’s better for her to keep it to herself.
#2 She doesn’t want to look bad. No one wants to look like a dick or lesser than another person. So, she tries to impress you by hiding the fact that she wasn’t married eight times before or that she’s rolling in cash when she actually isn’t. This isn’t about you, so don’t take it personally. She wants to impress you or, depending on where you are on the social ladder, wants to get herself to the highest step.
#3 They want their lie to be true. This is another reason why women lie about certain things because they want that lie to actually be the truth. In some instances, their desires overcome them, and well, you know the saying, if you say a lie over and over again it becomes the truth.
#4 She’s hiding her past. There are certainly some things in my past that I wouldn’t want the guy I’m interested in to find out. Why? Because I don’t want him to think me less of a person nor do I want him to lose interest in me. Which, can I say, is stupid. We all make mistakes and have done things we’re not proud of.
