Decoding Your Dude: Why Do Men Lie, and What Can You Do?

#5 He doesn’t want to hurt your feelings. “Babe do I look fat in these jeans?” “No honey.” Sound familiar? Think about it: do you really want to hear the truth, even if you already know the answer yourself? These little white lies really aren’t anything to worry about, unless they begin to happen all the time. If your man is lying to protect you, take it as a gesture of love.

#7 He is no good. Of course, there is always the possibility that he is lying to protect himself because he really has done something wrong that would have negative consequences if you ever found out. If he is lying to benefit himself, to cheat, to steal from you, or to do something that is otherwise bad for you, then he should be held accountable for his actions.

If he is hurting you and is putting his own needs before the needs of your relationship, then it’s time to kick him to the curb. If you don’t trust him and think he is lying for a malicious reason, don’t be too quick to succumb to his countless excuses.
