According to a new Texas A&M University, people admitted to misleading their partner a third of the time. When they got hitched, that number dropped to 1 in 10--but still, that means the woman you married could be telilng fibs nearly every day.
Susan Baraash has a new book out called Little White Lies, Deep Dark Secrets: The Truth About Why Women Lie. She says, "Often they find white lies serve them more than the truth."
AND WHAT ARE THE SEVEN LIES?
#1 The dress was on sale.
It wasn't. In your wives mind, saving money ("It was half off") negates spending it. This is a habit they learn from their mothers.
That's the biggest one I've ever seen.
No it isn't. Most women have had at least one partner who belonged in the movies. Among the the rest, the differences don't really add up. It doesn't really matter to women, but it matters to men, so they'll stroke their egos.
I've only been with two men.
More like four. Most women can spout off past partners names as fast as men can name fantasy league rosters. Women always minimize the past because they want to seem pristine. Women will reason, "That one didn't count" because it only lasted a minute or they never saw the guy again.
I don't want anything for our anniversary.
Yeah, and no one wants to win the lottery. What is really means, "I expect flowers and the purse I've been drooling over.
"I'm in no hurry to have kids."
Guess Again. She may not be gunning to get pregnant ASAP, but some where in her brain there is a "tick tick" sound. Even is your wife is 25, she has an internal timeline no matter how "in the flow" she seems.
I'm totally cool with your poker night".
Not always. It's in a womans nature to want a committed partner and to want to be around him a lot. No woman wants to seem needy, so she won't be totally honest about her feelings.
I wouldn't change anything about you.
She totally would. The fact is, she wants you to loose 10 or 20 pounds. She wants to to take a job you hate if it means more money, and she wishes you weren't so cheap.
Deal with it guys....
