Why Do Women Lie

If you think your woman would never lie to you, guess again. From little white lies to the more serious variety, most women will curtail the truth at some point in a relationship. Her motivation for lying can stem from wanting to protect your feelings or, sure enough, to save her own butt.

One day, when a seamstress was sewing while sitting close to a river, her thimble fell into the river. When she cried out, the Lord appeared and asked, ‘My dear child, why are you crying?’ The seamstress replied that her thimble had fallen into the water and that she needed it to help her husband in making a living for their family. The Lord dipped His hand into the water and pulled up a golden thimble set with sapphires.

‘Is this your thimble?’ the Lord asked The seamstress replied, ‘No.’
The Lord again dipped into the river. He held out a golden thimble studded with rubies.

‘Is this your thimble?’ the Lord asked. Again, the seamstress replied, ‘No.’The Lord reached down again and came up with a leather thimble.

‘Is this your thimble ?’ the Lord asked. The seamstress replied, ‘Yes.’ The Lord was pleased with the woman’s honesty and gave her all three thimbles to keep, and the seamstress went home happy. Some years later, the seamstress was walking with her husband along the riverbank, and her husband fell into the river and disappeared under the water. When she cried out, the Lord again appeared and asked her, ‘Why are you crying?’ ‘Oh Lord, my husband has fallen into the river!’

The Lord went down into the water and came up with George Clooney. ‘Is this your husband?’ the Lord asked.

‘Yes,’ cried the seamstress. The Lord was furious. ‘You lied! That is an untruth!’ The seamstress replied, ‘Oh, forgive me, my Lord. It is a misunderstanding. You see, if I had said ‘no’ to George Clooney, you would have come up with Brad Pitt.

Then if I said ‘no’ to him, you would have come up with my husband. Had I then said ‘yes,’ you would have given me all three. Lord, I’m not in the best of health and would not be able to take care of all three husbands, so THAT’S why I said ‘yes’ to George Clooney.
And so the Lord let her keep him.
The moral of this story is:

Whenever a woman lies, it’s for a good and honorable reason, and in the best interest of others. That’s our story, and we’re sticking to it.


  • Everyone lies. Everyone. For every man who has been cheated on, there is a man cheating. Technically men cheat more often than women.

    Women (most) care, some of us are bitches, a good amount are, and that is generally because a man has treated her like shit at some point and now she is on defense. Woman (most) care VERY much what others think of us, especially the people we love. We want the people we love to admire us. Guys (most) do it too, you can say that you don’t care what people think of you, but secretly you do care a little. You love it when a female (especially a good looking one) thinks highly of you or a personality trait (substitute character, physical, emotional, whatever).

    Women (most) lie, of course we do. Infants lie. Yes babies, we learn to lie before we learn to tell the truth. It’s a human thing. We learn that sometimes lying means we won’t get in trouble, or someone won’t be disappointed in us. Is it right to lie, probably not. However;since humans are so social, without lying society wouldn’t be as nice. On the plus side we wouldn’t have so many crooked male politicians. I can say that because the majority of politicians are male, and therefore a greater percentage of crooked politicians are male.

    Now. Women lie. Men lie. Women are better at lying. We just are. We’re generally more creative. If men didn’t put us in these roles… a generally patriarchal society exists almost everywhere, we would all tell the truth more often. If you don’t like the way a woman is treating you, don’t be around her. Simple as that. Start thinking with your bigger head.

    Ps. obbop, stop trying to cause issues. A society of only men would die out, you could never reproduce. A society of only women could live on. Two females can join their eggs to create a healthy human. Women found that out.

  • Some Wommen Told Me That She Is The Most Trusted Person? And Some Othere Wommen She Dose Not Lie?

  • This is all funny because, my experience with woman is that they ALL lie to a certain extent! They will lie even when you catch them lieing. However, most of the time their lies are only to keep us men from being upset or jealous or whatever. Realistically, not being truthful upsets us more than whatever it is they lie about in the first place.

    I think that woman over-think things and are afraid of confontation. Men are taught to “man-up” and be honest and learn from our mistakes.

    IMO, honesty is the best policy. Stop lying and hiding from things that you say/do or whatever. Learn that where all human and things happen in life. No one is perfect. Accept it and learn from your mistakes. Dont hide them behind the lies that you make. It only makes you a fake and a loser.

  • Differences will always be in a relationship. There is no way to be with someone who is exactly like you all the way around. This is no excuse for lying. Just using an emotional copout to excuse dishonest actions.

  • I have learned that it is not wise to share everything in a relationship. It can lead to hurt feelings and unnecessary fighting. I used to think that all around honesty, share your whole soul was a good idea. But you are two different people and soul sharing can get messy.

  • get tired of their lps not moving.

  • And of course, now all is said and done with the women I talked about earlier. She broke up with me, then kept showing on my door step even after I found out that she was talking to the man she cheated on her husband with. I guess Im mostly mad at myself, however it is sad that this women still continued to lie to me after all was said and done.
    Here’s the thing, I’m a dude who likes chicks, so Im only going to be affected by liars of the opposite sex when it comes to intimate relationships. BUT, I know plenty of women who could say that men are horrible and always lie.
    This isn’t a gender issue. Women and men both lie equally, and its never a victimless crime when love is involved. (damn that sounds like an emo song, doesn’t it?)
    And as far as having a sense of humor about it. It would be a (barely) funny joke if the moral didnt strike a chord with those who have been damaged by lies that break trust.

  • I have a girlfriend of nine months whom I suspected of lying about her past even though I did not ask her about it. Seems that two or three times I have caught her in lies but she always denied it(even in the face of some pretty solid evidence) and actually turned the tables on me as if I was totally wrong (the best defense is a good offense)

    I recently caught her in a clear lie that even she couldn,t deny. What surprised me was that it was not even something that needed to be lied about.
    She went into the usual attack mode when confronted with her lie and I simply let her go on and on about what a bad person I am and how I need to change my attitude etc.She went on and on attacking me and then without giving me a chance to say anything, she hung up.

    I did not respond at that time.Later, after she contacted me, I sent her an email saying that I understood exactly what she was doing by flipping the script. That not taking responsibility for her own actions was bad enough but that trying to make me believe that it was my fault was abusive and that if she could not admit it , ok, but that I could not stay in an abusive relationship.
    Once she saw that I was not buying into her game,she admitted that I was right about the lie and her tactiics. This has lead to more conversations about her fears of seeming imperfect etc.

    Can someone please tell me why some people just cannot be wrong? Is this connected to low self esteem? Why try to turn it on someone else? Is it something that is done consciously? Can you ever believe anything that a person like this says? Need some insight here.

  • Women are neither equal nor different to men – they are inferior. Women rarely if ever organize themselves effectively because they are unable to think logically.

    If all men told the truth the tears of women would create another flood.

    Where neither love nor hatred is in the game a woman is a mediocre player.

    Women for the most part do not love us. They do not choose a man because they love him, but because it pleases them to be loved by him.

    Women have no sympathy . . . And my experience of women is almost as large as Europe. And it is so intimate too. Women crave for being loved, not for loving. They scream at you for sympathy all day long, they are incapable of giving any in return for they cannot remember your affairs long enough to do so.

    A woman rarely discards one lover until she is sure of another.

    Woman’s dearest delight is to wound man’s self-conceit, though man’s dearest delight is to gratify hers. There is at least one creature lower than man.

    Even a fickle woman is loyal to one man – until she prefers another.

  • a liar is a liar no matter how you look at it . a woman is just better at it more cunning . they refuse to tell the truth even when put on the spot and caught in the act. as if we are that dumb wich maybe true at times but not when we see it with our own eyes . but why if it was worth doing its worth telling the truth . even if it does mean hurting the one you love the most . the lie hurts more and if they dont care enough to tell the truth then move on the woman and her lie can pay the bills

  • After being in an unsuccessful relationship that ended bitterly i now understand the meaning of the tale above. Not just women but all people have a point in their life where they ‘lie’..are there different types?..yes but all i am saying is the important thing to do is simply think before you do something you might potentially have to cover up, point plank people have feelings and if love is involved you have to take that into account when making the decision to be decietful…Karma People!!

  • And i’m not saying that I’ve never lied/sinned by the way. I mean….that’d be just plain silly.

  • The joke was funny.
    BUT, since I have a girlfriend who I have caught in a few lies I find it hard to laugh. I think its wrong for anyone in a relationship to lie to the other person. If you’re doing something that you can’t tell someone you’re committed to about; then chances are you shouldn’t be doing it. This is a two-way street.
    Its bull to say that men and woman lie for different reasons.
    People all lie for the same reason, to hide an act that brought them joy, but would hurt others. I find it alarming how people in the wrong can justify thier actions, but I don’t find it suprising. To not lie would be to TAKE ACCOUNTABILITY for yourself. This would require people to do a number of things that will probably never happen.
    Of course, anyone interested in this might want to start by seriously picking up a BIble and reading the new testament.

  • no, all lies are not the same. we all lie to some degree. the person that says that they ‘ve never said a lie in their lifes is a liar….

  • I agree with Daisy– you all seriously lack a sense of humor. As for Obbop, he’s just a jerk, and a misogynist one at that. Really: “females tend to be happier in cultures where they do not have to over-work their emotion-laden minds and are not forced to attempt excessive logical thinking”? Happier probably because they have been repressed by society and kept from realizing that they don’t have to be treated like chattel. Compare the happiness of men from an isolated village with that of men from a civilized country and I’m sure you’ll find that the isolated village is happier. Same reason– you can’t miss or want what you don’t know about. American women know that we deserve equal treatment, under the law and otherwise, and we’re unhappy because even after all these years, we still don’t have it.

  • A liar is no different than a thief. Once she/he lies they’ll always lie. Take it from someone that knows. I’ve been married for 13 years, and my wife who claims she loves me has been lying to me from the first day I met her, and I catch her every time she does it. I guess you can say I’m just plain stupid for putting up with it.

  • Females tend to be such fickle emotion-laden irrational creatures that there were valid reasons to deny that befuddled portion of the populace voting priveleges for such a lengthy period.

    Evidence from 1920 onwards indicates that for the good of society and country it may be necessary to, again, disallow females voting priveleges.

    Some cultures view and treat females as property. Valuable property, yes!! And, not to be mistreated.

    Yet, for the good of society and the female, females are limited to what extent they are allowed to interact with general society in those areas where females are property.

    Interestingly, when studies are conducted of female’s general over-all happines the end-result of those studies is repetitive: females tend to be happier in cultures where they do not have to over-work their emotion-laden minds and are not forced to attempt excessive logical thinking.

    I feel sorry for American females. Having to force their brains to function outside its biological limitations is a travesty.

    Oh, cute story in the original post. There IS much truth within it and the truth within can be expounded upon to reveal truisms within American society that when confronted by American females leads to emotion-laden knee-jerk rhetoric and a flood of illogical spewings of outrage.

    What the little girlies do not realize, apparently unable to observe or comprehend, their outpourings of illogial anger merely provide proof to the writings displayed by those such as I.

    Thank you for your support, girls. And for the guffaws and chortles you offer when a I read your spewings of outrage against what I write.

    Your hissy fits are exactly the confirmation for my opinions that support my opining.

  • I had a woman “lie to me to protect me”. Turned out she cheated on me for a year. The next girl tried to “protect me” by secretly sending letters to her ex-boyfriend, because “she didn’t want me to get upset. A liar is a liar, and a bitch is a bitch. I AM NOT misogynistic, I just really, REALLY hate liars.

  • also, I was trying to message you on Stumble about your this blog and was unable to, not sure why as I’m fairly new there.

  • wow do all your commenters have no sense of humour?

  • a lie is always a lie,, but dont used the lord’s name when u lie,,, u are surely go to hell,,…..

  • A lie is a lie. You can’t admit to being a liar and then expect anyone to believe you when you say it’s always for honorable reasons.
