There are many women that wonder why do men lie and for the most part, the answer to that question is a mystery. Women want to be able to trust the man in their life and lies can quickly lead to problems. It is important women understand why their man might lie and how they can get him to own up to his lies and become more honest.
Why Won’t He Be Honest?
There are many reasons a man might tell a white lie or even something a little more serious. Men who have been in failed relationships in the past will often lie to try and prevent fights and drama. They may want to go hang out with the boys but are afraid their lady will not like that so they make up a lie to cover for where they are.
Some women can end up making their man lie more when they overreact at every revelation he brings to the table. It is okay for men and women to spend time apart and a woman that tends to crowd her man is likely going to catch him in more lies than she would like.
The following are the most common reasons a man might lie to his lady:
- He thinks his lady is overly sensitive and will overreact. In his mind, he thinks he is protecting her from being upset over something he considers trivial. If he is unsure of how his lady might react, he will likely lie to avoid drama and keep her happy.
- He hates drama and wants to avoid it. Most men do not like to delve deep into their feelings and they would like to avoid needless fights. Men will often feel the need to lie when drama seems to be a constant in a relationship.
- Men sometimes lie to impress their lady. They will embellish the truth just to get her attention and make her feel impressed over her man. Men always want to be the hero and someone their lady can look up to.
Help Him Stop
Simple and open communication can go a long way towards curbing a man’s lies. If the lines of communication are truly open and he still lies, there may be deeper problems.
