Today, tweets are flying on trending topic #LiesMenTellWomen and can I just say, OUCH! They don’t make men sound very kind or very original. There were a lot of repeats, so I tried to sum up the lies I saw most often. Not all guys are liars, but the ones that are apparently use these lines:
For when they don’t want to come home (As the song almost says, boys just wanna have fun):
Don’t worry, nothing to see here:

#LiesMenTellWomen IDK why my ex is texting me. She's a psycho.

(Ahh yes. She’s a psycho, you’re a psycho. We know how that defense goes.)
And speaking of psychos, this one is necessary because all single gals are obviously crazy cat ladies:
#LiesMenTellWomen: Of course I wanna see pictures of your cat!

Sometimes, their talk is cheap:
#LiesMenTellWomen I'm sorry. Naw u sorry u got caught!

Men will do anything to get out of communication:

No, I don't zone out and start thinking about football during our telephone conversations. Never. #LiesMenTellWomen

To be fair, men aren’t great at multitasking:
#LiesMenTellWomen “no, really…I AM listening. I heard everything you said.” *tears eyes away from T.V. and repeats your last three words*

The lying does go both ways, people:
#LiesMenTellWomen The same lies women tell Men!!

But hey, maybe there’s hope for mankind after all:
#LiesMenTellWomen Real Men don't tell lies to women…"boys" do….bcus Real Men are not afraid of Honesty..

Has a man ever told you any of these lies? What lies do you think men tell? Have you ever been told a truly outrageous lie?
