Soludo made the call at “The Big Ideas Podium’’ with the theme “Nigeria: The Economics of Failure’’ of the African Heritage Institution (Afri-Heritage) in Enugu on Tuesday. He said that the…
Even though it is said that a woman’s face is like an open book that reveals her state of mind, men need to beware of some women. These women lie and do it with an innocent face that can fool even the devil.
As a man, don’t bet your life on everything your woman tells you irrespective of how much you trust and adore her. The fact is that many women lie to their significant others sometimes.
Sometimes, they lie to carry off a situation without hurting the feelings of the men they love or to save themselves from trouble. Others lie on some occasions to contain their emotions and pose as good women so that they won’t be seen as jealous or possessive.
Telling white lies is no big deal for women when it comes to playing it safe in their relationships. White lies are no big blunders or massive betrayals, but small lies or ‘truth manipulated’ to handle a situation.
But the fact remains that all lies, from little white untruths to serious deceit, can be detrimental to any relationship. And while both men and women are capable of being untruthful to their significant other, they may not always do it for the same reasons.
Here are some lies women tell their unsuspecting partners in relationships:
How many men she has had sex with
Unless you got married right out of secondary school, it’s likely both you and your significant other have had more than one sexual partner. Although you know this to be true, it doesn’t mean you won’t cringe at the mention of their number. Which is why a woman might lie when questioned about her sexual history.
Saying she’s fine when she’s not
One lie women tell is, “Nothing’s wrong, I’m fine.” Anyone who’s heard these words before probably doesn’t consider it much of a punishable crime, but it is a lie, nonetheless. While it’s more acceptable in platonic relationships, such as with a co-worker, there’s no place for this little white lie in a romantic one. A woman telling her partner she’s fine when something’s weighing on her mind could end up making her feel isolated or resentful, he needs to press her to unburden her heart.
How much something cost
Money will always be a topic of conversation, regardless of who makes more of it. So, it’s quite possible a woman may be tempted to fudge the truth as to how much that new outfit really cost.
Some women think telling their men how much something truly cost will make these men judge them for their spending habits, while thinking they are frivolous. But when it comes to money, though, it’s always best to be honest with one’s partner.
Telling her partner he’s the best she’s ever had
Wanting to please your partner in bed is only natural, and vice versa. Maybe you are with the person you are meant to be with for the rest of your life, and that’s great. But the truth is, this doesn’t always mean you will both be the best the other’s had. Some women lie to their husbands about them being the best sex they have ever had.
Fantasizing about someone else
Before you go getting your underwear in a twist, though, remember you can’t control your thoughts, and neither can your partner. And while it may not be the perfect scenario, it’s probably not done purposefully. If you do decide you want to know the truth, be prepared for an answer you may not want to hear. Just think twice before you ask your woman whether she has fantasies about another man, you might not like her answer unless you want her to look you in the eyes and lie.
Having an orgasm
It’s not an urban legend by any means; some women have faked an orgasm at one time or another. Regardless of the reasoning behind it, it’s still a lie. Maybe she wanted it to be over. Or, perhaps she just knew it wasn’t going to happen this time. Whatever the case, it’s possible.
She wasn’t that into her ex
Anyone who’s devoted a significant amount of time to someone else surely had feelings for them, even if they no longer do. A woman may lie about how she felt about an ex for a few different reasons. She might do it to come across as a good girl, to make it seem like she wasn’t endlessly searching for the right person, or just to protect her partner’s feelings.
