FREE ADULT CHAT ARTICLES - ADULT DATE
by Margaret Paul, Ph.D.
A reader of my articles wrote to me about the article
I wrote entitled, Why do People Lie? He said
that he would be very interested in a similar article
with examples about all the lying that women do
least in the initial stages of dating, women lie sooooo
Well, being a woman, Im not as aware of how much
women lie on dates as I am of how much men lie on dates.
So I decided to write about date lying in general.
The man who wrote to me was upset about lies such as I
have to go, or Im busy, or Im
on another call right now. Ill call you back.
He states that I think that much of this is womens
very misguided attempt to spare someones feelings.
Reject them, without actually rejecting them.
I think this is accurate. Women have been trained to not
hurt mens feelings. They have been taught that if
the truth will hurt, then tell a white lie.
And, when they do tell the truth, it is often in a harsh
or critical way.
Ive often counseled women, who dont want to
date a particular man, to say things like, I dont
feel romantic toward you, or There doesnt
seem to be chemistry between us, or Im
not feeling a connection with you. One of my clients
told a man who called her for a first date, Your
energy does not feel respectful toward me. Im not
drawn to meet you because of this. He was open to
what she was saying and they ended up having a good conversation.
He was appreciative of her truth, and she ended up going
out with him.
Since men are usually the ones doing the calling, they
are not as often put in the position of say no. My experience
is that men often lie too, but in different ways. For
example, a client of mine, a psychotherapist, dated a
man who told her he was in therapy. She was pleased to
hear this, as personal growth was very important to her.
She later discovered that he was in therapy because the
court had mandated it due to him having punched his ex-wife
in the stomach while she was pregnant. She found this
out through the ex-wife. His avoidance of the truth was
an attempt to impress her and control how she felt about
Men often lie by coming on strong, calling
a lot, sending flowers - trying to impress a woman. Then
once the woman is hooked, the attention falls
away. The giving wasnt his normal way of being -
he was giving to get. It is well known that many men know
exactly what to say to a woman to melt her heart. A man
at one of my 5-day intensive workshops, who was married
but was addicted to being with other women, revealed how
easy it was for him to hook women in, even when they knew
he was married. Women desperately want to be seen
and understood. All I have to do is reflect back to the
woman the things she wants to hear and Ive got her.
I can see her caring, her intelligence, her creativity,
her joy of life, her beauty. I can see what she has to
offer that has been squashed down. When I see these things
in her, she falls in love with me. Some of the women
in the intensive were drawn to him, even knowing that
he was sucking them in! The lie was not what he was saying
to them about themselves it was that he covertly
implied that he would be available to continue to see,
love, nurture and support them, when in reality he had
no intention of continuing to do so.
Date lying of many kinds is common for both men and women.
Generally, neither men nor women want to hurt
another person with the truth of how they feel. Both men
and woman can turn on the charm at the beginning and seem
to be giving and caring, only to turn out to be using
the other for their own neediness.
What is the way out of being at the other end of lies?
Stay tuned into your own intuition. Speak your truth.
Learn to give yourself the approval and attention that
you are trying to get from another, so that you are not
so vulnerable to others approval. And, dont
take it personally when someone does lie to you. Their
lie is more about them than it is about you.
