Most Common Lies Men Tell in a Relationship

Everyone lies in their relationship some do it to keep arguments from happening, some do it to save themselves from looking bad, or even to save their relationship. Here are some of the most common lies men tell in a relationship:

1. I didn’t answer your call because I was asleep.

This could mean a lot of things, but the one thing that is for sure is that it always means that he did not want to talk to you. Chances are he wasn’t asleep. Granted, the chances of him using this excuse because he is cheating on you are low, but it does raise the question why doesn’t he want to talk?

2. I didn’t have my phone on me.

This is a similar lie to I didn’t answer your call because I was asleep. Usually, this doesn’t mean they are cheating, but it does indicate that there may be some hidden issues that you need to discuss.

3. I will never cheat again!

Everyone wants to believe their boyfriend will never cheat again, but if he cheated once he will probably cheat again. Cheating becomes a habit, and this is a habit that is difficult to break. If you discover that your boyfriend cheated on you, this is a clear sign to move on. He has no respect for you, or the relationship in general.

4. We are just friends.

I have known her for years, is a line we have all heard.”This is a classic case of a guy trying to throw you off the cheating scent. If a woman is texting your boyfriend constantly, and he is prioritizing her messages over yours, then that is a red flag. This is something you need to get to the bottom of before it’s too late.

5. Yes, I was listening.

This isn’t as serious as cheating, but it can be quite frustrating. When you have been talking to your man and it seems like he is losing focus, don’t believe his lies when he tells you that he’s been listening.

6. It’s not you. I just have a lot of stuff going on.

It truly is about you or your relationship. And yes, maybe your significant other does have a lot of things on his plate right now.

7. Why are you so upset?

This is a rhetorical question because he probably does know why you’re upset. If you and your man have had a disputable discussion or public spat and you are visibly fuming, he clearly knows why you are upset.

8. It is just hard to plan things right now.

This just means he doesn’t want to make plans. It can be a small problem if it’s just a weekend plan, but if it is for long-term goals or plans, then there is a deeper problem. The only way to solve that is through communication. You will need to address why he doesn’t want to commit to any future plans with you.
