Yes, women lie, men lie, and even children lie, but the reality is that men lie more. I’ve tried to look at things objectively and give men the benefit of the doubt, but they prove me right time and time again. I see women give their all in relationships and all ask for honesty and respect, but it seems that men are incapable of this. I mean, what do you say when you’re a nice, young woman in a two year relationship with a man who seems stable and dedicated only to find out he sees no future with you. He doesn’t believe in marriage and this woman compromised a wedding because she saw a future with hin that he apparently didn’t share. Why didn’t he come clean from the beginning and not waste her time? Because men are liars. And what about the flirtatious husband that has girls all over the internet saying, “I miss you, baby,” and “I can’t wait to see?” He promises his wife that he’ll cut these “groupies” off, but he doesn’t? He’s a liar. And the guy that says he’s only dating you and he only wants you, and yet he’s cruising for other chicks? He’s a major liar.
Men lie all the time and it’s an unfortunate and stressful situation because there seems like there is no solution to the problem. I’ve learned that you cannot change a man, he can only change himself. Men lie because they are selfish, they want their cake and want to eat it too. Men do not want to lose, and so they lie to save face and to get what they want. But we all know this, but what can we do about it? The obvious is leave the guy but if every guy is a liar, what are you left with? I’m thinking ‘we have three options: be alone forever, find a man whose lies you can tolerate, or wait around for the “perfect man.” Good luck with that last one.
These options are difficult because you don’t want to settle, but it seems that when it comes to men, there’s nothing else you can do. You can either tolerate the bullsh*t or be alone. I try to believe that you can actually find the “perfect man,” but I only know 1 woman who is in a “perfect relationship” and everyone else has to compromise. Is lying, one of those compromises? It might be.
