why do guys lie?

I was at a party and I over heard some guys talking. I don't have any close guy friends so I admit my ears were burning. The one guy said how he lied to his fiance about how many partners he had and some of the stuff he's done with them. He said he wanted her to think it was the first time they did certain stuff or she was the only one he tried stuff with. Why do guys lie?

  • People lie. In general. Have you never lied to your SO thinking you would save them from dissapointment? I don't now, but I can't say I haven't.

  • Everyone lies! Oh and that lie... totally did the same thing when I met my husband. I told him I had only slept with 6 people *LIE* i told him the truth before we had sex. I told him it was more than 6, i didnt tell him the number. We still dont know how many sexual partners we have been with. We like to just keep it to ourselves. I dont like thinking about him with other people and visa versa :)

  • Oh wait...I lied! haha! I sort of hid some reciepts because I didn't want him to worry. But it was stupid because when he found out he really didn't care! LOL

  • I think the reason here is because the woman would get hurt feelings if she knew the truth. Heck I love my husband and we been married for 25 years and I don't want to hear what he did with other women! I would be jealous and angry. SOme stuff is on a need to know basis and I do NOT need to know what went on in the sack before me. So relax about guys. Sheesh.

  • in this case i commend the guy lying. what a sweet fiance. he's a keeper. it's sometimes best to lie to spare someones feelings, in this case he did. which is perfectly understandable and i don't know why your confused on why he did it. i would think it was obvious.
