Men and women lie. Lying is not reserved for men only, both sexes put in the work when it comes to this not so clever form of communication. People lie for different reasons; SoProfound states that lying is necessary to keep emotions balanced, needs met, wants satisfied and happiness guaranteed. I was on radio last night and we touched on this subject and turns out I still have more to say on the subject!
Every woman wants a good life, show me one who says otherwise and I’ll show you a liar! Financial security is one of the top priorities for most women and from what I’ve gathered men have figured this out and take advantage of it. Some of these men will build castles in the air and you will fall for it. The few lucky women find out it was just a farce months into deciding to date someone others are unfortunate and find out the truth when they are pregnant and have nowhere else to go. Goodbye fancy dates hello reality which includes borrowing from friends to keep up appearances.
If you’re a sexually active man I’m absolutely positive you have received this message a couple of times and you probably went into extreme panic mode. Some women can be a handful but there’s a reason. We want to “see” where the relationship is going in a very twisted and immature way. We think that your reaction to our “pregnancy” will give us an idea of how you feel about us. It will be unheard of if you even utter the words abortion! Then again if you suggest it chances of you sending through money are highly likely and the money can be put to better use seeing you would have chosen to be a prick; in our eyes anyway. Not all I’m pregnant messages are true, it’s just a little lie to get you feeling miserable for the fun of it.
Everyone is single depending on who’s asking. A man or woman can be in a relationship but the moment a potential candidate presents themselves their relationship status goes out the window. Our generation has become quite a greedy lot. We don’t seem to be content with one partner, we want not one but as many options as possible to fulfill different areas of our lives. I blame social media, too many options are just a click away. If you aren’t happy you easily turn your attention elsewhere and therein lies the problem. People have paired themselves up with married people who have hidden whole spouses and social media has been thriving on these stories. If a person can lie to you about an entire family imagine what else they can lie to you about?
I think there’s a lot of lying in relationships because most people don’t know how to communicate and think that telling a lie will manage whatever expectations that would have presented themselves. Everyone has accepted lies at some point in their life because of how the lie probably made them feel. A great example is a man telling you he loves you and chose you because you bring him so much happiness meanwhile he is in a relationship with someone else. Deep down you know he’s lying but those words just leave you feeling so good you can’t help yourself.
We were on the show for a good 2 hours that flew by so fast and that confirmed just how much fun we were having. Thoughts from the guests on the topic that caught my attention were:
Women love being lied to! Sox
Men lie out of love. Kuda
Men lie, women lie but the one thing I know for a fact is that liars forget and can’t keep a straight story. One way or the other the truth will come out so if you want to have a stress free life I’d suggest you keep your life as straight and narrow as you possibly can, at least for the most part.
What have your experiences with lies been? What’s the biggest lie that you have ever told? Do you think it’s okay or not to tell lies?
