  • Ok trust is a must if your relationship is going to work. If it were me I would make a HUGE deal out of it. But I would also go out of my way to stress that its the lying I was upset about. People dont lie unless they need to sneak around. I would be very suspicous if it were me. What is he hiding?

  • men are so dumb and immature at times, and at the same time too. he needs to stop lying and needs to figure out what about you makes him lie. not you as a person, but theres probably a reason why he wont tell you the truth. is it just because he knows your going to bitch at him?
    even if that is the case, he knows what he is doing is wrong and thats why he didnt tell you, and thats why he knows your going to bitch. try to be understanding when you talk to him about it, maybe he'll come around more often and let you know what he's up to for the night. and when you become more understanding, he has no reason to say he didnt tell you because "you were going to bitch at him". and if he still doesnt tell you, than he's a prick and needs to grow up.
    good luck.

  • i agree with NightOwlMama , lying is very suspicious. you dont lie unless you have something to cover up

  • You could tell him that a relationship is built upon trust, and if you can't trust him, then the relationship is over. Ask him why he feels the need to lie IF he wasn't doing something wrong. It's his responsibility now to prove to you that you can trust him by telling you exactly where he went, what he was doing, and why he lied. And the part where he wanted to wait so he wouldn't have to hear you bitch, obviously he's also trying to turn this situation around and make it seem as if you were in the wrong also. You should really reconsider if you really want a man like this in your life. There should be no reason that he should have anything to hide, so get things straightened out. If he doesn't change, maybe its time for you to just end things. GL!

  • i dont know if this is a good idea BUT is it horrible now if i feel like i need to check up on him like when he says hes leaving call his work and see how long it was that he actually left...or follow him or something? hes the type of person where he will never admit that he lied and that he was wrong and just keep saying no i didnt no i didnt until i finally let it go cause its not worth it...and its not fair that im home all the time with no car and hes out doin whatever ya know? any suggestions?

  • This is not a healthy relationship. You deserve better. If he'll go along with couples counseling then try that, but it seems to me that you should be looking toward moving on with your life. You don't really want to stay with someone who makes you miserable.

  • I feel the same way you do about lying, my ex lied about everything. He used to turn it around on me too, saying he didn't want to listen to me. He wouldn't have had to listen to me if he hadn't lied. His lying is one of the biggest reasons why he is my ex, he would lie about the stupidest little things, he just had a need to lie. I wish I had some good advice for you, in my experience, lying is a huge character flaw and they don't stop. Only you can decide if you can live with the lies, or if you throw him out on his lying rear end.
