10 Lies Your Boyfriend Tells

Boyfriends. Husbands. Maybe even girlfriends. I don't know, I don't judge. Let me just use the word "lover" here. We've all been lied to, but these are those kind lies. Those little white lies simply stated to make you feel slightly better. They happen. These are the ones my boyfriend tells me. While I do not condone lying, I remember this Dalai Lama reference:
"His Holiness cited the traditional example of a monk and a hunter. The hunter is in pursuit of a wild animal and comes across a monk who he asks where the animal went. Because of the harm that would ensue, this is a case in which the monk would be wrong to tell the truth. Similarly, when asked whether it can ever be acceptable to steal or sell drugs to support your family, His Holiness responded that you have to judge for yourself whether supporting your family justifies ruining someone else’s life." Source

 These are those "this lie will cause less harm than the truth" type of lies. Can you relate? :]



1. "I've never seen any cellulite." Well that's just a straight up gargantuan lie. There's no way to wiggle out of this one. There's cellulite alright. If you have eyes you can see it, but I appreciate the thoughtful lie.

2. "On my way." No you're not. I bet $10 that you haven't even left yet. I bet that you're still tying your shoes or making a sandwich or restyling your hair for 4th time. At least now I know I still have about half an hour before you arrive. Time to finally pluck my eyebrows.

3. "I love your parents." Ooooooooooooooooooooooh. You love them & that's why you're afraid to visit them -- by 'them' I mean my mom of course.

4. "Thanks! I love it." Either I am seriously the best gift giver on earth or...you're lying. Did you really enjoy the men's Clinique set I gave you or do you wish I bought you headphones instead? Pretty sure I can answer my own question.

5. "That looks great." It sooo does not. I look like a frumpy bag lady. Is it supposed to look like that? I kind of wish you'd be objective with me here so I don't end up walking out of the house thinking I look fly but really I look like a weirdo.

You told me this outfit looked good!


6. "This tastes great." Uh oh, you used the word 'great' again. I know this isn't my best meal -- my own taste buds can recognize that. But hey, I'm a human being with no culinary training, so this is what I came up with. Thank you for chewing it & keeping it down.

7. "It'll be okay." Sure, maybe one day, but right now it's totally not okay. The car accident or the lost job affect my well-being at the moment. I appreciate your kindness & maybe if you just hold me it'll be okay.

8. "That makes sense." It probably doesn't. Sometimes I find myself blabbering about some subject only to find that my words are confusing & I end up going off on a tangent. Do you like apples?

9. "I never said that." You didn't? Then why do I have an inkling that you did? If you never said that, then there are some things I never said either. If you didn't say it, I must have dreamt it, right?

10. "I'm fine." This is the biggest lie on earth. You aren't the only one to lie about it though -- I have a feeling most humans have said this & thus, lied. It's okay not to be okay. It's okay to have bad days, but I'm here for you. That's what I wish you'd see.

Can you relate to any of these lies? What are your thoughts on the Dalai Lama reference? :]

  2. haha some spot on points here!
    Though I do think my hubby would almost be telling the truth if he said he hadn't seen any cellulite as I doubt that he actually knows what it is!
    Another I always get is that apparently I didn't tell him things, like when I arrange a night out with the girls, he always claims I never told him.

  4. Some of them are said in order to be polite, so I think we shouldn't blame them.

  18. You are so cute Carmen, I really loved this post! You got me thinking with the Dalai Lama reference. Sometimes it is a matter of making the right choices and whatever feels right. My two cents with saying little white lies is that once you start doing it frequently it gets worse and very challenging to stop. And I speak from personal experience. It takes a lot of conscious effort to always say the truth no matter what and it is actually one of my goals in my present life. I am talking about lies such as: I didn't text you back because I was on a work meeting (not really!) or, I didn't call you back because I fell to sleep (of course not, I just didn't want to talk to you!). Yes, I do that a lot! Great post Carmen, you made me smile;-) Take care sweet girl, xoxo, Jeannette

    1. Lies can definitely escalade, especially because the person may have created a habit of lying. But sometimes the lies are just to mask an opinion which may or may not be relevant. Like the "does this look good" one, I may love it & someone else may not. Their opinion might actually not make an impact. Anyway, lies suck. :P

  20. Omg, I relate to ALL of these. Our sweet guys and their little white lies... The cellulite one is especially kind :) That quote is also some great food for thought. It's so important to make decisions in the spirit of any larger implications!

  23. Ha my boyfriend always says he's "on his way" when in reality his just jumping in the shower and getting ready! He also likes to say "oh, I'm sorry baby" when I'm telling him something and he clearly isn't listening. Ugh boys...they think we don't know!

  24. LMAO! This post really made me loud out loud, Carmen! My husband is the same, I know when he's telling a little fib. However, he's not one who shies away from telling me I look like a homeless lady and he made it very clear that he thinks my mum is batshit crazy. LOL!
