The most common lies some men tell.
Weâ€™ve all heard the classic â€śno, your bum doesnâ€™t look big in thatâ€ť, but what other common lies do men tell women?
â€śI donâ€™t want to do anything, but letâ€™s just lie in bedâ€ť
Men feel that desexualising the thought of you and him in bed means that heâ€™s onto a winner when it comes to a little sexy time. When he says â€śletâ€™s go to bed for a snuggleâ€ť it usually leads to â€śshall we hop under the covers? Itâ€™s getting chillyâ€ť and then â€śplease take your clothes off, I love the feel of your skin next to mineâ€ť, and you get the idea of where it goes from there.Â Sometimes itâ€™s good to just go along with this because it can be entertaining for women to wait for his next move; itâ€™s always so predictable that itâ€™s kind of comical. Bless men for thinking theyâ€™re being all sneaky when we know exactly what theyâ€™re up to. Cheeky little liars!
â€śNo, Iâ€™m not marriedâ€ť
Whether theyâ€™re single or taken, married or divorced, the weak spot for many men is revealing their true relationship status when theyâ€™re approached by a member of the opposite sex. â€śIâ€™m divorced and on the dating scene at the momentâ€ť usually translates to â€śIâ€™m married with five kidsâ€ť when youâ€™re 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. Itâ€™s not until a few days later when they add you to a social networking site from a friendâ€™s account that you come across their account. And their fiancĂ©â€™s account. Busted. Come on guys, have some common sense.
â€śIâ€™m on my wayâ€ť
â€śIâ€™m on my way nowâ€ť, 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 heâ€™s thinking about coming home but isnâ€™t quite ready yet. When you ring him an hour later, he says â€śSorry babe, my mate bought me another drink so I had to stayâ€ť â€“ classic male lie.Â The trick to getting your man home on time tonight is telling him youâ€™ll be wearing something sexy at 8.00pm. Heâ€™ll 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 thatâ€™s heâ€™s supposed to be meeting his mate…
â€śIâ€™m sober as a judgeâ€ť
What is it with men not being able to admit that they canâ€™t handle their drink? â€śIâ€™m sober as a judgeâ€ť he insists, as he stumbles his way up the stairs. If youâ€™re going to tell this lie, men, at least donâ€™t 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 weâ€™re going to get is â€śI did get a little tipsy, but I certainly wasnâ€™t drunkâ€ť.
â€śI was staring at her jeans because I thought theyâ€™re the same as yoursâ€ť
When a man is looking at another ladyâ€™s behind and you pull him up on it, the classic excuse is â€śI was staring at her jeans because I thought they were the same as yoursâ€ť. Erm, I donâ€™t own a pair of bright pink jeans so I donâ€™t 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 donâ€™t seem to have any control over their wandering eyes these days.
