Reasons Why men lie in a Relationship
Reasons Why men lie
Lying has been observed as a common phenomenon that both men and women are guilty of engaging in.
Men, just like women, lie for various reasons, and understanding this complex subject requires delving into the different factors that contribute to this behavior.
During a recent episode of the Super Morning Show on Joy FM, callers shared their interesting perspectives on why men lie.
Some suggested that men lie because they believe it is necessary to maintain their relationships.
They emphasized the importance of keeping certain things private to ensure a successful marriage or relationship.
According to them, men may even deny the truth when caught in a lie to protect their families.

One caller expressed, “Lying is like oxygen to a man; every man grows up with it. Without lying, you cannot maintain your relationships until the end of your life.”
Another caller pointed out that certain mistakes are better left unsaid, and sometimes, it is essential to deny them, even if caught, to preserve love and harmony in the relationship.
They believed it was crucial not to be hypocritical about this aspect of lying.
Robert from Goaso, who also called in, emphasized the difference between dating and marriage.
He argued that having another woman aside from one’s girlfriend in a dating relationship should not be considered a big deal because divorce only occurs in marriages, not in dating.
Hence, he saw lying as a non-issue in a dating relationship and believed women should not be hurt by it.
According to Robert, dating multiple women helps in making the right choice, and women should understand the competitive aspect of dating and strive to be chosen.
He explained, “I am multi-dating because I am choosing, and you knowing that I have the opportunity to choose means you should up your game to win my choice.”
Robert concluded that when dating becomes exclusive with one person, it becomes a form of commitment akin to marriage.
Until then, he believed that not disclosing certain things, which might be hurtful, does not constitute lying.
