Create an opportunity for him to cheat. Tell him that you’re going out with the ladies a week or so in advance. Then when date comes, stakeout your house and see if took the opportunity to cheat.

Ladies, my heart goes out to all of you. You have it rough. Always wondering if your man is lying, what he’s lying about, etc…, all leading to the greatest fear — possible infidelity. But you may be suprised to find out that not all lies your man tells you are to hide infidellity. Here you’ll learn of 4 types of lying boyfriends.

The freedom-seeking lying boyfriend

This boyfriend comes out when his girlfriend becomes to possessive. “Where are you going? What took you so long? When are you coming back?”…etc. This constant barrage of questioning makes guys feel like they don’t belong to themselves anymore, like they no longer have any autonomy. So what do they do to get back at you? Lie. This is more of a passive-aggressive response than actual deception. They do it just be done with the interrogation get to what they want to do. It’s also a way to maintain some semblance of power in the relationship.

My suggestion is to easy up on the constant interrogation and ask the most pertinent questions. Of course, you should still feel free to exchange pleasantries (e.g. So how was your day, dear?)

The power-seeking lying boyfriend

Sometimes, your guy might use a lie as a weapon or tool in a power play within the relationship. Now that women are able to advance in many fields at one time available only to men, the woman might be the one wearing the pants or the one with the more successful career or position. Recent studies suggest that while women tell lies to make others feel better, men tell lies in order to feel better about themselves, so why not against a mate whose a bit higher up in the ladder. By deceiving, one is withholding information, which a source of power. That way the boyfriend feels he has something you don’t

The lying boyfriend who just wants to stay with you

Sometimes, that guy you’re with wasn’t completely honest about who he was when you hooked up. Here, the issue is expectation. He lies to live up to your expectation. Examples include “You liked Marley & Me, how funny, so do I!” or “I see your a Democrat. Did you know I voted for Barak Obama.” or “I have well paying job and I’m good at it.” or the ever so popular “I agree.” What this boyfriend wants is to either keep his girlfriend or not lose her, so he makes himself out to be something he’s not.

  • Changes in speech patterns and scheduling
  • If he drives a car, check his speedometer to see if he has more miles than he should

  1. Its really annoying and irritating how some men act sometimes. They seem to have no shame. U could tell they are lying, but they just go on. Even when they are caught, they still go back to same old act that is likely to cost them that which is important to them.
