3 Reasons why men lie to women.
Men, even the good ones, seem to be unable to stick to the truth.
Whether it’s about little things that don’t even really matter, or the important issues in your relationship that depend on an honest conversation…
You know he often hides behind anything from little white lies to whoppers of epic proportions!
Here’s the truth: men lie to the women they love and they lie often.
But why can’t they simply tell the truth?
There are 3 main reasons that men lie to the women in their lives…
Understanding each of them is the key to getting your man to open up so your relationship can be built on honesty and integrity, instead of suspicion and deceit!
The First Reason Behind His Lies
Have you ever asked, “Do I look fat in this?”
These sorts of questions have convinced men that there are too many potential traps in responding honestly.
Rather than navigate them, it’s easier to simply tell you what they think you want to hear.
Sometimes men lie to women because they think if they tell you the truth, you simply won’t like them as much.
If you ask, “What are you thinking about?” you’re likely to get a very fast response like this one: “Uh…nothing, honey.”
The Third (and Biggest) Reason Behind His Lies
One of the biggest reasons men lie to women is because men are terrified of women and their emotions!
It might sound weird, but emotions are actually a lot harder for guys to deal with and to recover from.
According to Dr. John Gottman of the University of Washington, women can both enter and recover from extreme emotional states a lot faster and easier than guys can.
If you think about it, it makes sense.
We’ve all seen a woman burst into tears one moment, only to be totally fine a minute or two later.
But when it comes to emotions, guys are a lot more fragile.
What do you think? Could this information be used to change behaviour and make a difference?
