Whenever I think of women lying to men, I always remember Tisha Campbell on the “Fresh Prince of Bel Air.” If you need a reminder, here is Tisha’s character before and after the earthquake trapped her and Will in Uncle Phil’s basement.
The episode was not only hilarious but it also blasted women who fib when they first meet a man. From wigs to weaves to colored contacts and ass and bust padding, ladies, we definitely do a number on fellows.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not that innocent. I may not lie about my appearance but I don’t lead with my Daddy/abandonment issues either. (Hello, nice to meet you, hottie. My Daddy left me when I was 12 and it scarred me.) I’ve also withheld information when first dating a man, particularly about my career. Imagine what would happen if I would lead with, “Sooooo I write about relationships and am coined the ‘Latina Carrie Bradshaw. This date is fodder, buddy.” I would have never been asked out – ever!
So, yes, we all fib! Some just more than others. Here are 5 lies that you should never ever tell a guy you’re dating. It’s either that or suffer the consequences (and there will be consequences!!!).
If you’ve never been to a gym in your life, please don’t tell a man that you love to work out. Cause he’ll expect you to work out! You should be especially honest about your workout habits if he’s a workout fanatic. That dude that goes to the gym 5 days a week? Yeah, don’t tell him you’re a gym rat. He may just surprise you with a bootcamp class. The consequence looks like this:
I Love to Cook!
So you say you’re a master chef but can only microwave Chef Boyardee. He will expect you to cook! He will want you to cook him a feast when you come over. Not a hot dog or a hamburger. He will also want you to cook often. And he won’t feel like Honey Boo Boo when you give ’em food from a can.
I Don’t Want a Relationship
There was once a movie called “Love Jones” where the woman said she just wanted “to chill” because that’s what the man said he wanted. She lied and fell in love and blah, blah, blah! So, ladies, don’t tell a man you’re dating that you don’t want a relationship. Chances are if he doesn’t want one, he still won’t. And you’ll be like this little person.
Me? I’m Such a Sports Fan
If you really love sports, good for you! But many women lie about enjoying the Big Game just to impress a guy they just met. Don’t do it or your life will be filled with these moments. Does that make you happy?
Such a Chill Girl
Most women want to be deemed as the cool girl and girlfriend. So when you tell a guy you’re just dating that you’re the chill girl who thinks going to Hooters and strip clubs is awesome, well, he’s going to go to Hooters and strip clubs. That’s who you said you were. In the end, you cannot complain. Count your dollars, honey, ’cause he’s going to make it rain.
