Relationships are supposed to be open, sharing, and honest but  56% of women lie about their feelings .Most babes might be upset with me..but based on my ongoing research, I believe that women and men frequently lie in different ways and for different reasons. One cause for a gender divide when it comes to telling the truth is that we live in a patriarchal society where despite the great gains for women, men still have more agency. And those who wield more power have more choices and opportunities that exist simply by virtue of their status. There is a complexity to how female lies manifest: Women keep secrets and lie to protect the secret. The secret exists for the sake of appearance, to avoid judgment, scrutiny and criticism. When we are raised to be good girls good girls who always 'get it right' and never have any problems it's sometimes easier to not reveal any pain, turbulence, disappointment or trouble in one's life.



    More than 80 percent of women advocate beneficial lying ------ meaning that the lie is more important than the truth.

    80 percent of interviewees believe that women lie more cleverly and successfully than men

    More than 75 percent of women feel justified in their lie

    70 percent of women attribute 'living a lie' to how they've been positioned in marriages, the workplace, financially or as mothers.

    75 percent of women say they lie about money to boyfriends, husbands and family members

Surely, there are a few familiar lies that are no-brainers; the ones women tell about age, weight, mothers-in-law, flawed friendships, botox or cosmetic surgery. The more serious lies that women tell include how they truly feel about a romantic relationship, about being a wife, about infidelity (including an affair of the mind), about motherhood and about their own accomplishments. Add to this the dark secrets eating disorders, abuse, incest, paternity and addictions. Women have said they feel the need to lie about how a child is doing in school or at work. Others have spoken of covering up her lost job or, more disturbing, covering up her husband's lost job. The decision is to tell friends and family that the new position is that of 'consultant. When i considered all of the above, i concluded that female lies manifest as a woman's quest for reprisal, a way to avoid being evaluated and found wanting.

Hopea23 some mothers also teach dia daughters the value of saving face by lying as a method of preserving oneself, a way of avoiding the shame that can follow the truth.  Cool
