It's An Ego Thing: Sh!t That Guys Will Always Lie About

There are some things that guys just don't say because they know what the repercussions will be. Whether it's just to their friends or their girlfriends there is a lot that guys lie about. If it's with their mates, it's usually just trivial details that they lie about, but if it's to their girlfriend then they will lie just to keep the peace. Here are the things that guys will always lie about.

15) How many they've had to drink


If they get particularly drunk one night, they'll always try particularly hard to hide the fact that they are. They will say that they had one or two, when in reality it was 6 pints, three jägarbombs and a naggin of vodka. It will eventually all come out (literally) when they end up puking their ring up in the toilet 20 mins later.

14) How many times they go to the gym


Whether it's to their mates or when they are trying to impress a girl, they will always fabricate the little details. Even though they seem to always be carrying a gym bag around with them it doesn't necessarly mean that there are going to the gym all time. They want to give off the impression that they have a healthy lifestyle, which they do, but maybe not to the extent that they say.

13) How many girl's they have slept with


Well, this is quite an obvious one, guys will always stretch the truth in terms of how many girls they slept with. If they say it to their mate, they will greatly exaggerate it, but if it's to their girlfriend they don't want to come off as a manwhore. Either way guys will always change the number.

12) Whether or not you look fat in that



You really shouldn't ask a guy this question in the first place, but even if they think a certain dress makes you more filled out they won't say it. Guys will never say yes to this question unless they are gay or are a platonic best friend. If a guy is in anyway romantically linked with a girl the answer will always be no.

11) How they feel

When a guy falls over or bangs into something they will never show a sign of weakness. If someone tells a joke that is all too true, guys will always pretend like it didn't affect them. We are good at hiding our feelings even when we are really hurting inside.


10) How busy they are


Sometimes we can genuinely be busy, whether it comes to college work or your job. A lot of the time thought it basically means that they would just rather be alone. Sometimes we just need a little me time, which basically means watching football or playing the xbox. Either way, when we say this it's mostly a lie.

 9) How interested they are



If a guy has to actually say "That is really interesting" it means the exact opposite of that. When they say it, it means that they have zoned out and have completely lost interest in the conversation. If we're actually interested in the conversation we would contribute to it. instead of acting like we're interested.

8) Where their career is going


Guys will always pretend that there is some direction to their life, when someone asks what are you going to do after college it's always hard to answer. Usually we just say something we're interested in and not what we are actually going to do, which is sit at home in our pajamas watching Breaking Bad all day.


7) If they like your friends or not


You don't get on with everybody you meet, but if a girl asks a guy what he thinks about her friends he will always say he likes them. Most of the time there are always one or two that they don't like, but they will never say it. It's all an attempt to keep the peace and to no stir up any unnecessary drama.

6) How tired they really are



When a guy says he is tired, we just say it so we can get ourselves out of doing something. We all have days where we are feeling a bit tired, but when we get asked to do something or you're just not really in the mood for going out we will say we're really tired.

5) If they're actually listening to you


If a girl asks a guy if he was listening, then he was most definitely not. Girls can sense when guys are thinking about something else while they're talking. Even if we zone out just for a couple of seconds it can be hard to get back on track. We will always just say we were listening even though we actually weren't.


4) That they would rather be with you


Sometimes we might say that we would rather be with our girlfriends when if fact all we want to do is hang out with the lads. We will never say that we want to do it, but secretly we really do. It's nothing personal because sometimes you just need some time with your mates.

3) How much money they make



This is a very common lie that guys tell, we always want to sound like we're minted even though we're not. It will all be put on show though, when they don't have enough money to pay for a meal and they have to ask if the girl can pay her half.

2)  Why they didn't text back


A lot of the time we have every intention of texting back and then our mind wanders and we compleley forget about it. We will use every excuse to cover up our forgetfulness. It's usually either that our phone was turned off or that the battery died. We will never admit to our wandering mind.

1) How much they think about sex


As a man myself, I will admit that we do think about it quite a bit and all that comes with it.  I think that some people that say we do it every 7 seconds are ridiculous, I don't think it's that much, is it? Guys do however make it seem like we never think about, we do think about it a lot ,it's just little things throughout the day. It's all instinctual and we can't really help it, as much as we say we don't, we definitely do.
