“I’m FINE” and Other (White) Lies Women Tell Men

Okay, we’ll own up. We lie to men as often as they lie to us. But our intentions are not bad - we just don’t want to make life messier than it already is. And we all do this! Don’t believe us? Just read on and see how many of these teensy-weensy little white lies women tell men you’ve been guilty of! (Trust us, we’re not judging. ;))


intro



1. I’m out with my girlfriends. Yes, only my girlfriends.


point1

Translation: Please stop being so jealous and possessive. There are guys around too, but I can’t tell you because you’re going to hyperventilate and ruin my evening.



2. Um, stop, I have my period.


Translation: It’s not “THAT time of the month”. I just don’t really feel like doing it.



3. I’ll be ready in 5 minutes.


Translation: Never gonna happen in the Kingdom of Woman.



4. Don’t worry, I bought it on sale.


Translation: We’re only saying that to keep you from freaking out about our shopping addiction.



5. I’m FINE.


point5

Translation: Run. Just run.



6. My landlord has issues with male guests.


Translation: I don’t want you invading my personal space. Please stop asking to visit.



7. You don’t have to pay.


Translation: That’s true, but how could you not even offer?!



8. Of course I like your friends.


point8

Translation: I don’t. I'm just trying not to hurt your feelings.



9. Sure. Do whatever you like.


point9

Translation: Don’t do that. Just don’t.



10. It’s not you, it’s me.


Translation: It’s you, and I don’t want to get into a long and messy discussion about breaking up. Let’s just get this over with.



11. No, I never liked him! Not even before I met you!


point11

Translation: Had a massive crush on him, so huge that I had even named our babies.



12. Yeah, my parents totally love you.

13. I’m okay.


point13

Translation: Rest assured, things are not okay.



14. Tell me the truth. Trust me, I won’t get angry.


Translation: We will promise anything to get the truth out of you. We’ll see about the not getting angry bit afterwards.



15. I weigh.../ I am only... (Insert weight/ age here)


Translation: NAH. A woman is entitled to her secrets.



16. Wow, I love this gift!


Translation: Hope you’ve left the bill in the bag so we can go and get it exchanged.



17. No, I’m not jealous.


Translation: I SAW you make eye contact with that girl at the bar! I want to rip your throat out.



18. I totally get that you want some space.


point18

Translation: Please. How could you not want us around all the time? We’re awesome.



19. The only reason my ex still calls is because we broke up on a good note.


Translation: Ha ha ha.

Translation: I don’t. How can you say that? I HATE you.
