Men lie for no reason because women make them
english.pravda.ru ^ | 5-8-2007 | Staff Writer

Do you want to know the reasons why men tell lies? Those reasons are asking to be seen.

First off, a man lies to a woman to gain her approval because he simply cannot do without it. Second, he lies to prove that he can really stand out in a crowd, and therefore he deserves to find favor with her. And last but not least – he lies to her because it is easier for him to cut corners that way. Telling lies also helps him to get off scot-free when problems arise.

Hey, you left off some of the more obnoxious parts, e.g.,

He says: “I’m looking for a woman to form a steady relationship. However, I may be the wrong kind of guy for such a relationship.” It means: “You’re okay for the time being. But I keep my eyes open.”

Well, fortunately, only the jerky guys lie.

My husband is so great he didn’t have to tell any lies to win my eternal devotion.

No argument with me. I especially like the line about getting off “scot free” when problems arise.

As if we women needed someone to tell us this!

Men sell BS

Women buy it.

The smart ladies hold out for the good stuff.

you see... men have absolutely no idea what a woman wants... so we answer "yes dear" to everything. There are special times when we get a small glimpse of what a woman wants... and we pounce on it... usually we get it wrong. But we try...

I've been married for 37 years to the same woman. I used to know what I wanted... now she tells me what I want. I'm even starting to look like her... boobs and all (need to lose about 20 pounds).

LMAO!

Why you poor dear, maybe a nice big shot of testoterone would help!

You have been robbed!

Why, I'm thinking about you, of course.

No, that dress makes you look thin!

Of course not, dear: she's not prettier than you.

I would never remarry if anything happened to you.

I, also, have lost custody of all my testoterone. She doles it out on a PRN (as needed) basis -— usually enough to remind me there is a reason for it... but I can’t remember why...

My father in law, a very wise man, who also shared my birthday, told me like it is...

He said men lie so we dont have to do things...like say he was asked to fold a towel, he would do it wrong so MIL would never ask again, same for dishes, homework with kids, anything.

It sort of makes sense but since I am in-tune with Dad in laws philosophy my husband does not get away with much. : )
Unless of course I let him.

Woman: "Do I look nice in this dress?"

Man: "Yes, you look great".

It's the only possible answer........

Another prize-winning headline. Isn't "because women make them" then a "reason" why men lie?

THATS BS!!

If a woman wants to know the truth, I tell her the truth.

If she wants me to say something, then she should just tell me to say it.

If you ask a question, you’d better be prepared to hear the answer.

I posted that as written at the website. I even had to delete an extra "TO" at the end of the sentence. This was from a Russian newspaper and the translation could be the culprit.

I've been told NOT to change headlines... so that's how it came out and that's how I posted it (well sorta).

“”SCOTT FREE””

Is that implying that a grown man can somehow get in trouble, otherwise.

I don’t understand how grown men get “in trouble”

I know...my comment was directed at the source, not at you. I'm Russian myself (moved w/ parents to the US at age 6), and familiar with the various grammar errors and mis-translations into English.

Even funnier than the headline about lying...it came from PRAVDA!! Don't care who you are, that's funny right there!

Woman: "Do I look nice in this dress?"

Man: "Yes, you look great".

It's the only possible answer........

Suggested alternative:

Woman: "Do I look nice in this dress?"

Man: "What do you think?"

Woman: "I'm asking your opinion."

Man: "My opinion doesn't matter - it's your own opinion that counts."

Woman: "I'm afraid it makes me look fat."

Man (taking her by the shoulders and pointing her toward the nearest mirror): "Look, you need to fall in love with that woman right there. No external validation can ultimately make any difference in how you feel about yourself."

Such questions are a sign of immaturity and low self-esteem - the man should try being the grownup (for once) and helping her grow past this instead of ducking the question with some stupid white lie.

No, I’m just saying, when I was ten years old I would try to lie to my mother to stay out of trouble.

I am not ten years old anymore and my wife is not my mother, so I cannot relate to grown men that feels the need to lie to stay out of “trouble”.

Wasn’t there a time when women liked men that were, you know, men.

Well, being a female I lied as a kid too, to, at least try to stay out of trouble. I usually got caught.

I like men that are men, in otherwards a non feminine man. I really don't equate a man's manliness with lying.

If you are asking if accepting lies as being part of liking a grown man, nope.

It does go both ways. I don't think men are the only liars around.

Oh yes. And there still is that time, though probably not as popular as it once was. I guess we can thank feminism for that. Or what it really is, the empowerment of women & the emasculation of men.
