The most common lies some men tell.
Weâve all heard the classic âno, your bum doesnât look big in thatâ, but what other common lies do men tell women?
âI donât want to do anything, but letâs just lie in bedâ
Men feel that desexualising the thought of you and him in bed means that heâs onto a winner when it comes to a little sexy time. When he says âletâs go to bed for a snuggleâ it usually leads to âshall we hop under the covers? Itâs getting chillyâ and then âplease take your clothes off, I love the feel of your skin next to mineâ, and you get the idea of where it goes from there.Â Sometimes itâs good to just go along with this because it can be entertaining for women to wait for his next move; itâs always so predictable that itâs kind of comical. Bless men for thinking theyâre being all sneaky when we know exactly what theyâre up to. Cheeky little liars!
âNo, Iâm not marriedâ
Whether theyâre single or taken, married or divorced, the weak spot for many men is revealing their true relationship status when theyâre approached by a member of the opposite sex. âIâm divorced and on the dating scene at the momentâ usually translates to âIâm married with five kidsâ when youâre speaking to the man who swears that the awfully suspicious ring on his finger was a present from his mum.Â Men love being approached by a member of the opposite sex because it gives them an ego boost and they love to lap it up. Itâs not until a few days later when they add you to a social networking site from a friendâs account that you come across their account. And their fiancĂ©âs account. Busted. Come on guys, have some common sense.
âIâm on my wayâ
âIâm on my way nowâ, when said by a man, is usually accompanied by background music and the relentless chatting of familiar voices that you recognise to be those of his friends in a bar. What he means is that heâs thinking about coming home but isnât quite ready yet. When you ring him an hour later, he says âSorry babe, my mate bought me another drink so I had to stayâ â classic male lie.Â The trick to getting your man home on time tonight is telling him youâll be wearing something sexy at 8.00pm. Heâll be home pronto with no excuses to be heard. Until he realises your sexy underwear is actually your comfy clothes and he comes to the sudden realisation thatâs heâs supposed to be meeting his mate…
âIâm sober as a judgeâ
What is it with men not being able to admit that they canât handle their drink? âIâm sober as a judgeâ he insists, as he stumbles his way up the stairs. If youâre going to tell this lie, men, at least donât walk up the stairs like you have two left feet. Try brushing your teeth before you try kissing us too; alcohol breath is the biggest tell-tale sign of a drunken partner. Even the next morning when you clearly have the hangover from hell, the closest to the truth weâre going to get is âI did get a little tipsy, but I certainly wasnât drunkâ.
âI was staring at her jeans because I thought theyâre the same as yoursâ
When a man is looking at another ladyâs behind and you pull him up on it, the classic excuse is âI was staring at her jeans because I thought they were the same as yoursâ. Erm, I donât own a pair of bright pink jeans so I donât think they are the same as mine and even if they were the same, why would this be so fascinating? We know that men look at other women, but when they do it right in front of our eyes and then lie about it, it makes us feel kind of bad about ourselves. Some men just donât seem to have any control over their wandering eyes these days.
