Sometimes, an untruth is sweeter than facing the bitter truth. We help you figure out when your girl is not speaking her heart out.\u00a0 Women. So unpredictable. So mysterious. They have more layers than an onion, which men are left to figure out. While many of us strive to be honest, truthful, and forthright, we do not always tell the truth. Most of the time, we tell white lies, calculated lies, half-truths, well, just to keep the peace. This week, we help men figure out when their little adorable girl is not speaking her heart out.\u00a0 Number of sexual partners This is the most common thing that a woman will lie about. Morris Mugo, 36 says more than 90 per cent of women lie about this. He sites that when men tell you they have slept with six girls, probably they have slept with two. \u201cMen multiply the count by three,\u201d he believes.\u00a0 He added: \u201cWhen a girl tells you she has been with three guys, nine guys is probably more accurate. I have found that a lot of times it\u2019s even more, maybe six or seven times the number she told you.\u201d However, psychologist Mercelina Odawa partly agrees that men lie on their body count to look superior and man enough, while women on the other hand would lie to look innocent and dateable. We are just friends, he\u2019s not interested When you ask women of their relationship with another man, when they are committed to you, they will tell you \u201cWe are just friends, he\u2019s not interested in me.\u201d \u00a0Odawa explains why women lie about this. \u201cWomen will have \u201cbackup plans\u201d that they will continue chatting and flirting with. They keep them in case the relationship doesn\u2019t work out or they have somebody to run to when there is a big fight in the relationship,\u201d she says.\u00a0 Past abortions \u201cI\u2019ve had two abortions in the past, because the men responsible were not ready to own up. More so, I did it because I myself was not ready to have a child. So when I got pregnant the third time with a different man, I knew abortion was out of question and decided to have the child and settle down,\u201d says Maryanne Ogola, 27. \u201cI do not regret my decision.\u201d Ogola says that her stay-in boyfriend does not know of her past abortions and she would die if he would. Just say it, I won\u2019t get angry This one is tricky, leaving you with a ditch on one side and a bigger ditch on the other. This lie is usually thrown at you when she wants an honest opinion and knows what it can be, but still wants to hear it.\u00a0 Irrespective of what you say, she is going to get furious for sure. This usually happens in questions related to her looks, the food that she cooks, that tangy orange shirt she brought you. \u201cSometimes it is tough to handle. Once, my woman asked my honest opinion on a tight dress she had worn. I told her honestly that she was looking like a stuffed pillow and she was mad at me. Taking cues from my past experience, on another occasion I did my best to flatter her. To my sheer surprise, even that made her angry and she blamed me for not being a fair critic,\u201d complains Eric Otieno. It\u2019s no doubt that she\u2019s lying on this one. Question is, what\u2019s the solution? Answers Odawa: \u201cIt\u2019s not that women cannot take true criticism from their men or expect praises all the time. But what they actually expect is that criticism should come in a softer and suggestive manner, rather than a striking taunt on her looks. So, without being too critical or over flattering, just tell her that she needs to work out on her minuses.\u201d I\u2019ve never done this before Every man out there must have heard this countless times. After bringing a girl back to your place on a first date or after just meeting her in the club, she will say \u201cI\u2019ve never done this before.\u201d \u201cWomen say that so the man will believe that she is a good girl who would never go home with a man she just met, but that he is just that one in a million who it ended up happening with. Of course, if she\u2019s saying that, it\u2019s not even close to the first time she has ever done something like that,\u201d says psychologist Michael Murimi. However, there is one positive thing you can take from these lies: it means that she is interested in a relationship with you.
