We all lie; this is a fact. Granted some people take lying to another level and ruin the positive side of the little white lie for people around the world. Besides that, it is clearly in a human being.
We all lie; this is a fact. Granted some people take lying to another level and ruin the positive side of the little white lie for people around the world. Besides that, it is clearly in a human being’s nature to lie; we do it to save ourselves from awkward and/or embarrassing situations, we do it to make someone feel better or worse. As much as we do not like to admit it, lying can be both good and bad, it all depends on the situation you are in at the moment. People in relationships have found that lying has both helped and hindered their relationship; mostly helped as it ends up smoothing over a potential bad situation. Now let’s be clear, a lie is a lie and with all the negative stigma around lying, it can quickly make things significantly bad; (i.e.make the liar look like a horrible person and make the person lied to feel like utter crap). However, you cannot deny that when someone is lying to make their significant other feel good about themselves or shield them from a negative situation, one cannot help but feel like they did the right thing. There are a few common lies that men use to keep their relationships on the up and up (because they truly believe that they are doing something noble); these lies are usually about what they do when they are not around their girlfriend, or lies that make her feel like she is the sexiest thing on the planet (can’t fault him for those ones). This makes it hard for us to stay angry for too long, because let’s be honest if you were him you would do the same thing. Here is a list of little white lies that some men commonly tell their significant others.
Stop asking questions that you do not want the real answers to. Of course your man is not going to say you look fat unless he is a complete jerk and likes to put you down, in which case please run. To be honest most of the women that ask that question do not have an ounce of body fat on them but they could be wearing something that is not flattering to their stomach area or their butt, and instead of making you feel bad he opts for the lie. When you think about it he is actually trying to protect your self esteem, so maybe accept this lie for what it is. At the end of the day, as long as he thinks you look good, no one else’s comments matter. Who cares if you do look a bit chunky, have you not heard that thick is currently in? All the celebrities jumping on the body positive movement is enough to make you not care if he thinks you are fat or not. Keep in mind that he is dating you and whether or not he thinks you are fat, he is totally into what you are offering so you should really have no fear.
