Because telling the truth isn't popular, attractive, nor affectionate or successful.

Want a woman to hate you? Tell her the truth. It is almost an inescapable knee jerk reaction in American culture. You will be labelled rude, crass, insensitive, ignorant, stuck up, uneducated, and of course a D]CK

try it. your next opportunity, tell the woman the truth of what you are really thinking, and not what you think she wants to hear.
you aint getting that date.

or you could change cultures, change the rules; but if you are playing at that level, you best be speaking her language and not english.

I suggest try being honest when a woman asks "Does this dress make me look fat?" and see how far that gets you.

OP why do women lie to attract a man? Women lie just as much as men on online dating websites ;) Why can't you just be honest and admit women lie?

I loved the Abraham Lincoln commerical. "Honest" Abe is asked by his wife "does this dress make my back look fat?" :D

It's easy for us to miscommunicate online. Things get tangled up like in a briar patch. Plus it's frustrating for us to communicate-women and men speak different lanuages {imho} are raised differently, look at things differently and have different values, etc.

Wishing you all the best,

Message: ^^^Again, I did not make any statement that all men are liars, cheaters, etc. And I did not make a generalization about all men not being able to think logically. But you have answered the question quite clearly for yourself. Also, I certainly did not suggest in any way at all that all men are misogynists.

msg 182: I was not referring to any post you made. If you assumed I was, that's a curious thing. I was referring to the poster whom I quoted.

You have a great sense of humor :) Thanks for your candor. Excellent wise observations. But...but...but...but {low voice} many women lonline lie too, showing photos 10-20 years old, etc. I can't tell you how many dates I've been on where the woman showed up 20 years older than her picture. Or 200 lbs heavier.

In reference to question #1 above ^, I remember a thread on here a while ago, something silly about "loaded questions, to which there is NO safe answer", & that was used as a prime example.

As I replied then, I don't have eyes in the back of my head & if those jeans DO make my butt look big, I'd rather know that before we leave the house, so I can change into a better-looking pair! Simple logic! It ain't brain surgery, for heaven sake!

And to answer the question of the Original Topic: WHY DO MEN LIE TO GET A WOMAN TO FALL IN LOVE?
Answer: Simple, because sometimes it works.

It's just the balance of life. Women are picky. They can drop a guy on a whim if any small "red flag" comes up. So to counter the pickiness, we lie. I know a female friend who recently dumped a guy because he stood up and clapped in a movie theatre at the end of the movie. Any little thing like that can eliminate a guy. So we dance around your pickiness with lies. If women stopped being so picky, we would stop lying. But women can stop being picky, it's in your nature, so it's become our nature to lie to circumvent that. Like I said, the balance of life. One must be picky, the other must lie to avoid the pickiness.

because being completely honest puts a guy at a disadvantage. its so much easier to get laid when youre full of shit and tell a woman what she wants to hear.

Men lie for 1 of 2 reason :
1 They have low self esteem and think you wont like/love them if you know the truth about them, so they tell you what they think you want ot hear.
2 They know they shouldn't be getting into a relationship and lie to cover the truth
Either way keep your ears and eyes open.The signs are there you just have to make sure your open to them.

My BS meter works quite well and I don't let them get away with lying to me. As soon as I realize they're lying, I slowly give them rope and it doesn't take them very long to hang themselves :-)

A 27 year old millionaire that has his women sign contracts so he can dominate them. Then he "falls in love with a virgin he dominates.

Yep no fantasy there at all that type of man must be plentiful.

Men in general don't lie to women............................ y'all do that to yourselves more than we do.

Id say that's more or less the size of it, though it takes a certain moral deficiency to be able to lie to anyone; much less someone you have feelings for.

Most men dont fit into the "lie for sex" category. That is a lesser group who just forms the majority of men that women find themselves in the bed with, so they apply the mantra to men as a whole (more their problem than ours).

In reality, men who lie or 'stretch the truth' (like saying they are a supervisor at McDonald's when they are a fry cook), on the larger scale do so to to keep pace with the standards of women's archetype of men, which raises at a much faster rate than ours for them. Not right, but still true in many cases.

It WORKS because women want to believe what they are hearing. Selling someone a product that they already want to buy is relatively simple. It's sort of the methodology behind selling a hummer: completely impractical, prone to mechanical calamities that are hard to service, expensive, inefficient. However they are just SO pretty and they come in your favorite color, and your friends will be so jealous when they see you in it, so you want one anyway. All a salesman has to do to close the deal, is mischaracterize the benefits while omitting the troubling points. This is also known as "selling the experience".

Ultimately, no one can sell you what you don't want to buy. That's why it is so much harder to get a self serving lie past the average man. Most men who end up feeling slighted in a relationship are victims of women who simply 'changed their mind' or 'made an illogical decision' rather than one who lied from the outset.

because they have some sort of deficiency and dont want to reveal it before you are so madly in love that you will accept it. Keep dodging the bullets, find a straight arrow.

why are women so picky that a man has to lie for the woman to find him acceptable?

Replace "has to" with "chooses to".

The answer difference would be like day and night.
