4 reasons men lie to women

10 March 2016, 17:56 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - Why do men lie to women? Here are 4 reasons why.

Your expectations are too high

Obviously for some men when you tell him that that lady is out of his league, then he takes it upon himself to look at it as a challenge. Just to prove that he can and at times when that happens, he realizes that he actually likes her. But now he cannot go back because he most probably told a fib to gain her attention. So he maintains it so as not to end up losing her.

You are not as loyal as you would like to think you are-as the woman in the relationship

While dating, any man will be checking his lady to see where she stands in all matters relationship, marriage, where her loyalties lie-with him or herself? Then from there, he will decide what to do. Does he want her for forever after or he just wants a casual relationship? If he wants her for forever and he attained her under false pretenses to match her standards; he will continue with the lies. Because he knows the minute she finds out the truth he might just be old news.

To cover up another lie

You know when you start something and right when you are in the middle and it is back firing you start to ask yourself whether you should start afresh or continue? That sort of thing; so instead of coming clean, it is much easier to make up something new to cover up for the old one. It is much simpler for your man that way. For example; ‘I dumped her…..but I did not know that she was pregnant. I am finding out now just as you are.’ Then he will ask you, ‘So what do WE do?’ And you will wonder, ‘WE? Why is it we now when I was never part of the initial discussion or relationship?’

It is easier than dealing with some reactions

People do not react to any news the same way. Some are calm, some are quiet, and some walk away and the last one-some go crazy. The crazy ones are the ones people find easier to lie to that to deal with their reactions. If she is overdramatic, throws things and shouts even from simple matters. He will either lie through omission or just come up with a lie that will suit her best.
