Why men lie

   "Men tell little lies to avoid conflict,

...that's what Dr Xavier Amador (author of the book I'm Right, You're Wrong, Now What?) has to say.

In seven words he summarizes why men lie: to avoid conflict.

What does this look like in practice?

Eva and Jan are walking in a shopping street on a summer's day. Suddenly a gorgeous woman walks by with a slightly smaller dress than necessary. Jan secretly looks at the woman from the corner of his eye, but makes sure he does it as inconspicuously as possible.

Eva sees it anyway. Immediately she becomes insecure. Then she asks him the following question: 'Do you like her better than me?

Well, unless Jan is oil-dumb and doesn't understand anything about women, then he responds: "Of course he doesn't. She's pretty, but she's not really my type and I think you're much prettier.'

The funny thing is. That he'll always say this.

Even if he likes her better.

He does this because he cares about Eve and doesn't want to hurt her. Does this make him a horrible liar or a dear friend who cares about his girlfriend's feelings?

He's simply lying now to avoid a conflict.

Why women sometimes unconsciously force men to lie

Forced LyingQuestions as in the example above are guaranteed to make your friend lie to you.

Because let's be honest, of course he's not going to say that he likes her better (even if he does).

The reason I bring this up is because you also play a role in whether a man is lying or not.

What can you do to prevent your partner from lying to you?

Avoid questions where he has no choice but to lie to you.
