Why do guys always say what they think we want to hear and not what they really think?
For example, if I asked Hubs if I’m fat, he’ll say no. But I know that he really thinks: Well, you are getting a little porky around the middle but I’m not going to say anything or you’ll be mad and I won’t get any love forever and ever!
But then I get mad when he tells me I’m not fat because I know that he really does think I’m getting a little thick around the middle but isn’t telling me the truth. I’m probably not making any sense. Don’t worry, I don’t make sense to him either.
OK, here’s another one. I’ll ask Hubs if he likes my hair and he’ll say yes. But I’m pretty sure in the 26-plus years we’ve been together he’s not liked a hairstyle (or color) or two. But he just smiles and says it’s nice, even though he really means: Do I really have to be seen in public with you? How long will it take to grow out?
Hubs says I drive him nuts. On the one hand I want him to tell me what he really thinks and on the other hand if he tells me I get mad. “I can’t win,” he laments.
There! He’s telling me the truth!.
What are some things your significant other tells you that you know is a lie?
