When asking for honesty, why can't guys be honest? Especially when they know that telling the truth will hurt us less than lying.

  • -Most men aren't living for conscience of reasoning. they only "say", things after the fact that is LOGICAL about such things, afterwards, and women are vulnerable so they aren't looking for helping them find an education or helping a woman improve herself, first, they are the loose cannons, they are unstable without a "mom figure", and then blame us. Things are + will happen and they will blame US for all those accumulations. They aren't emotionally balanced as we are in where we are smart to have thought enough to get work, save money, have a steady job, and be supportive independently, and they do just the opposite, not in plain view, but with acting out, seeing other women, and using it's excuse of looking for a mate, and H O N E S T L Y...... secretly they hope that women are all fairy god mothers, one for doing clothes, one for sex, one for going to dates with, and

  • I all depends on the guy really. My ex was like that, but my husband isn't so much. They need to learn to think before they speak, and with some men it takes longer than others.

  • If war were an option meaning if only peace was available, 100% peace, would choose war.
    They don't see any option of peace. They can't be trusted, they can seek peace, and embrace the thought of peace being a word, but not a possibility. If it were up to their doing to undo an argument or be a "mend-a-broken-heart" and it were a course to take in school, they would inevitably have to reason to some earthly event that is impossible, like the one where they never ask for directions. They just can't be real people. They are always on another planet and love the disconnection. Hence no honesty + no communication+ being selfish = making a new problem. They continually love to keep us in their circle of chaos/control, constantly drifting and never getting answers, at least not real one.

  • I disagree. They DO NOT know that telling the truth will hurt less bc we women are emotional creatures. One time saying something might be fine and the next time he says the same thing a woman could go off on him. Steve Harvey says men say what they think won't cause an argument, whether it is a lie or the truth.

  • The eternal question. Lying is wrong so they should not do it. It's very simple. Unfortunately, too many people laugh it off or say they don't know what they are doing. It's crap. If a woman lies, she is a manipulative b*tch but if a man does it, he's just "not grown up yet" or he's trying to stay out of trouble and not hurt a woman's feelings. It's one more product of the idea that woman should excuse anything a man does because he doesn't know any better.
