Pretty sad assumption jackie-san. ive made my life's purpose to never knowingly tell a mistruth or outright lie. Shouldn't all of us strive to be better than we are?
Report as
Well yes, but I'm saying that men are not the only ones who lie. And certain people lie more than others.

The same reason women do. Because they are just not honest, or they want to protect someone.

Report as
but how are you protecting someone by lying ? yes it true " what they don't know wont hurt them " but at the same time you have to think about whats their reaction going to be when they find out. everybody don't like to be lied to cause i know i don't ! ' i think its just stuiped ' if you tell one lie you have to come up with some more lies to back the first one up ! why do all of that when you can just tell the truth ?
Report as
You should really work on making more sense.

Here are some reasons why I think in my opinion:

1) They don't want to hurt your feelings.
2) They don't want to have to put up with the drama.
3) They want to try and impress and may feel like by doing so is to lie to make them feel like enough or worthy to be with you.

I may be wrong, but this is what I think so far about them I mean hey women are not so innocent themselves cause they tell lies too....

No more, and no less than women do! See what a blanket statement like that gets? Frankly its just your opinion, and not fact. But do you feel better or more empowered by saying it? Just asking? :(

Or are you asking this to validate this wrongly held belief of yours. Remember its all just opinion, now isn't it?

There are so many reasons people lie. Usually comes down to avoiding arguments and trying to get away with something.

lol i was hopping you would see this lol, thats rightgator, we never had troubles till them woman folk got them some book learnin!
Report as
Excuse me, but you men would not survive one day in a woman's body just to let you know and along with the pregnancy almost about to pop the kid out you would simply cry and complain about it instead LOL :)
Report as
Excuse me for I guess that being too much for the mods to handle, but you men would cry and complain about it if you were a woman for one whole solid day and on top of that being pregnant too haha :)
Report as
you women complain enough for both sides lol
Report as
Complain? Most do yes, but I don't complain like a drama queen and all you men expect from a woman is for her to lie on her back and catch what you men throw at them if you catch my drift here we are humans and have our rights just as much as you men do LOL :)
Report as
says who? you dont need rights you just need to do as you're told! lol

That's a generalization - everyone lies - there are reasons for lying - rational reasons as appalling as that may sound. Go to samharris.org and read his article or book called "Lying". Harris is a neuroscientist.
