Excuses men give when lying

what's the best one you have heard, and how do you know when they are lying?

Yeah. Men are all liars. Great. 'Cause women NEVER lie. Ever.

Hmmm, what other hoary cliches can we drag out?

"Women- why can't these irrational creatures drive a car?"

"Blonds- Are they dumb or what?"

"Dad- he's a giant idiot"

i just hate the threads that pose a question for others to answer without the OP providing an answer, too. somehow i read these posts as demands that we share our opinions. does anyone else get that vibe, of being ordered to give feedback, when the OP does not contribute an opinion but asks for yours?

when i saw this topic i wondered what the reaction would be....i have to say, my immediate thought (as a woman) was that women lie as much as men sometimes about the same stuff and sometimes about different stuff. i'm glad nobody is going along with this.

I think you may be onto something there.....

"What lies have you heard from KooL Aid drinkers?"
(because you know all those KooL Aid drinkers are all sugared up and compulsive)

To 12:39, not trying to be fresh, or be the grammar police but just wanted to let you know that it's "woman" not "women" when you are talking about one woman in general or about yourself. Only had to point that out because you are calling someone else ignorant in your post while appearing so yourself.

STOP THE PRESSES!!!!!!!! Grammar police on the loose!

Mistyping because I am in a hurry is SO different than being ignorant, don't you think--or maybe you don't think outside your box...

hey ignorant 1:28 poster: USE A COMMA BEFORE the word BUT. Don't think you have the right to call anyone ignorant or pretend to be the grammar police.

Are there people out there trying to be me? Impossible! I am the true grammar police!

I knew it was a pretender - a true grammar police(wo)man would know that a comma before but would be incorrect in that instance.

My experience as a female...

Men lie to keep the peace and stay out of trouble.
Women also lie to keep the peace, but will also lie to make you feel bad.

I agree with 12:24 but think the obvious reason is still missing: How about it has NOTHING to do with this forum! It is called PEER TRAINER, right?

Okay, men tend to lie (in my experience) to hide things they've done for pleasure- sex, alcohol, gambling, "unapproved" buddies, etc.
Women tend to lie to protect their image- age, sex, amount of exercise, weight, status at work, wether they are wrong, etc.
It's a tough deal. Sometimes people make the argument that women's lies are more insidious, but the truth (no pun intended!) is that all lies hurt when the truth is revealed. I've found that men are more likely to break down and tell on themselves, which may be because women tend to confess to their friends about what they've done. There are no easy answers. All relationships are hard, and none are perfect.
