10 Reasons Why Your Boyfriend Keeps Lying To You (+Solution)

If your boyfriend keeps lying to you then there might be several reasons behind that.

 

In this article, I’m going to share with you several reasons why your boyfriend keeps lying to you and what to do about it.

 

So, let me get into these reasons before I sway away from today’s topic.

 

These are the reasons why your boyfriend keeps lying to you;

 

1. Your boyfriend keeps lying to you because he is keeping secrets from you.

If your boyfriend is keeping secrets from you then he will keep on lying to you.

 

As we all know if someone doesn’t want you to know something that he or she has kept hidden then he or she will never share with you any detail about it.

 

So, this is one of the reasons why your boyfriend keeps on lying to you.

 

When someone decides to keep secrets from you then he will lie to you so that he manages to hide his secrets.

 

I think this is one of the main reasons why men keep on lying to their women in relationships.

 

If your boyfriend is someone who is used to keeping secrets from you then never expects him to tell you the truth about anything that is going on.

 

When a person has so much to hide then the truth to him becomes poison.

 

2. Your boyfriend keeps lying to you because he doesn’t trust you with the truth.

This is another reason why your boyfriend keeps lying to you.

 

If your boyfriend doesn’t fully trust you then it will be hard for him to share with you the truth. When he feels that when you are given the truth you might make things go sideways then he will keep on lying to you.

 

Trust is something very important in a relationship.

 

If you have trust issues with your boyfriend then you better find a way to fix that immediately before it affects you negatively.

The moment someone doesn’t trust you with the truth or even if he doesn’t trust you with anything then there is no way he will tell you the truth.

 

Your boyfriend will only tell you the truth about anything in his life or the relationship if he trusts you fully.

 

If there is even a single part in him that doesn’t trust you then don’t expect him to keep telling you the truth.

 

3. Your boyfriend keeps lying to you because he is doing something fishy behind your back.

If your boyfriend is doing something fishy behind your back let us say, he is using your credit card without your permission, he is drinking or smoking yet you agreed not to do that or he is cheating on you then this is enough for him to lie to you.

 

When a person is guilty about something then he will never tell you the truth.

 

Especially, if he knows that the truth might affect your relationship then don’t expect him to tell you the truth.

 

He will keep on lying to you since he knows that if he reveals what he is doing behind your back you might end up fighting or worse than that.

 

So, if your boyfriend is doing something that he shouldn’t be doing then he will keep on lying to you.

 

This is one of the common reasons why men lie to their women.

 

Every man has a thing that he does in the shadow. They usually use lies to hide the things they do.

 

If your boyfriend is lying to you then this might be one of the reasons.

 

4. Your boyfriend keeps lying to you because he is not ready to share with you the truth.

The truth hurts. It will always hurt. That is why some people use lies to comfort themselves.

 

The moment your boyfriend finds that the truth might hurt you or him then he will keep on telling you lies.

 

If there is a truth he has been hiding from you and he knows that it can ruin you so badly then he won’t reveal it to you.

 

Don’t expect a man to be always honest with you.

 

There are some things that men will never share their truth about them with you.

 

Also, for someone to reveal the truth to you it needs courage.

 

So, if he isn’t ready to share the truth with you then he will keep on lying to you.

 

For a person to open up and share with you the whole truth about anything he will need so much time to think about it.

 

In short, if your boyfriend isn’t ready to share the truth with you then he will keep on lying to you.

 

5. Your boyfriend keeps lying to you because he might be protecting you or the relationship.

 

Sometimes people tell lies because they are protecting the people they love or something that they care about.

 

So, if your boyfriend is protecting you or the relationship then he will keep on lying to you.

 

For instance, he wants to protect the relationship he will never tell you that he cheated on you.

 

This is because he knows that when he tells you that you might end up breaking up with him.

 

Sometimes people do things in relationships that they have never intended to do.

 

Some things are hard to control and anyone can do them…

 

So, if your boyfriend knows that he did something that might ruin your relationship and he feels it wasn’t his fault then he might lie to you just to protect the relationship.

 

I know deep down you once lied to him to avoid complications in your relationship.

 

Also, if your boyfriend found something about you that might mess you up and he knows if he tells you the truth you might react badly to it then he will lie to you to protect you.

 

6. Your boyfriend keeps lying to you because he wants to take advantage of you.

This is another reason why your boyfriend keeps lying to you.

 

The moment your boyfriend has different intentions apart from pure love then he will always lie to you so that he can use you.

 

A manipulative man will never tell you the truth about anything even if he is needed to.

 

And this is one of the types of men, you should avoid at all costs.

7. Your boyfriend keeps lying to you because he isn’t serious about you.

When a man isn’t into you that seriously then don’t expect him to be honest with you.

 

A man who is serious about having a relationship that will thrive and make a significant step in his life then will never lie to you.

 

He knows that a true relationship and a long-lasting one isn’t built on lies but honesty.

 

So, if your boyfriend isn’t serious about your relationship then don’t expect him to tell you the truth about anything.

 

A man who loves you and cares about you will always be honest with you.

 

Does he love you?

 

If he keeps lying to you then check on your relationship bond.

 

8. Your boyfriend keeps lying to you because he is used to it.

We have people who are used to lying.

 

These kinds of people will never tell you the truth even if it would benefit them at one point.

 

These people have a condition called mythomania and pseudologia fantastica.

 

So, if your boyfriend is in this group of people then don’t expect him to tell you the truth.

 

He will keep on lying to you because it is in his nature. It’s very hard to leave something that you are accustomed to.

 

It’s like the way drug causes an addiction.

 

The more you do it the more you get used to it.

 

The moment you make yourself comfortable with lying to people you care about then this will keep on following you.

 

9. Your boyfriend might be lying to you because of peer pressure.

Other people don’t lie because they want to.

 

We have those who are influenced by the people they stay close to.

 

So, if your boyfriend is hanging out with friends who influence him to lie to you then he will keep on doing it.

 

Sometimes it can also be what he sees from his friends.

 

If he notices that his friends have the habit of lying to their girlfriends about several matters and he doesn’t see it affecting their relationship then he might end up doing the same.

 

Peer pressure is one of the reasons why your boyfriend keeps on lying to you.

 

10. Most men believe that ladies are comforted by lies.

 

I have heard this from so many men whom I have interacted with.

 

Men tend to believe that ladies don’t believe in the truth at all.

 

This is especially when men are trying to seduce ladies.

 

Men find out that ladies are well comforted by lies than the truth.

 

This is one of the beliefs that men have in them.

 

So, if your boyfriend also believes that you are more comfortable with lies than the truth then he will keep the truth away from you.

 

He will keep on lying to you just to make you realize that everything is fine.

 

What to do when your boyfriend lies to your face.

If you notice that your boyfriend is lying to you then you have to do something about it.

 

This is because a relationship is built on trust and honesty and if these two things are missing then your relationship will fail.

 

This is what to do when your boyfriend lies to your face;

 

1. Find why he is lying to you.

When you notice that your boyfriend is lying to you, then don’t get mad and start a fight without finding why he lied to you.

 

Always, whenever anything happens in a relationship don’t be in a rush of jumping to conclusions.

 

This way will never help you to come up with solutions in your relationship.

 

The only thing you can do is to keep calm and try to find out why he lies to you.

 

Don’t make him realize that you know that he is lying to you.

 

Make him assume that you know he isn’t lying.

 

In this way, you will be able to find these reasons even without striving so hard.

 

You can find these reasons by asking him indirect questions and looking at him the way he acts.

 

Look at him directly into his eyes. A liar will hardly look at you directly into your eyes.

 

When you find these reasons, figure out what to do about them.

 

Find the truth and save your relationship.

 

2. Confront him and tell him what you feel about him lying to you.

This is something else you can do if you find your boyfriend lying to you directly into your face.

 

You have to confront him if you find out that he is lying to you.

 

When you keep it cool and you play as if nothing happened then he will keep on lying to you.

 

He will even lie to you about other things since he will assume that you know nothing.

 

So, to put this thing to an end you need to confront him and tell him how you feel about him lying to you.

 

The moment you confront him and talk about the lies he gives you, he will feel guilty and stop lying to you.

 

Always stand for what you believe is right in your relationship.

 

Never keep quiet when you notice things aren’t going the way you desire.

 

Make sure you aren’t the problem when it comes to the failure of your relationship.

 

3. Share with him the dangers of lies in a relationship.

This is something else you can do if your boyfriend keeps lying to you.

 

He might be doing that because he doesn’t know the effects it might bring into the relationship.

 

You can’t blame him for that. When you know nothing of the negative effects of the things that you do in your relationship you will keep on doing them.

 

The moment you find that the things you do (E.g. lying and cheating) efficiently fixes your issues then you will keep on doing them.

 

Little do you know that it keeps breaking your relationship bit by bit.

 

So, tell your boyfriend how he jeopardizes your relationship when he keeps on lying to you.

 

If you have no idea what lies to do relationship then make sure you include this in your conversation with him.

 

The lies ruin the trust and honesty in a relationship. When this happens then you will have no relationship to work on.

 

We all know that love without trust can never work out.

 

4. Ask him to be honest with you if he wants the relationship to go on.

 

If your boyfriend keeps on lying to you and you know about it then it’s time to ask him to be honest with you.

 

Be clear enough to him that if he won’t be honest you won’t take it.

 

Ask him to be honest if he wants the relationship to go on.

 

You aren’t a kid he can lie to anytime he feels like.

 

Ask him politely to stop lying to you.

 

This isn’t hard if you really care about your relationship. You will do what it takes to make your relationship better so that you can reach your goals.

 

I know he might try to be defensive but give him a good deep speech and let him think about it.

 

If he really cares about you and the relationship then he will eventually stop lying to you.

 

5. If he keeps on lying to you then break up with him. 

The moment you have done everything to make him notice that you aren’t comfortable with his lies and yet he keeps on doing it then this means that he isn’t serious about you or the relationship.

 

If this is the case then there is no need to stay in such a relationship.

 

A person who truly loves you will never keep on lying to you.

 

End the relationship and move on with your life.

 

It’s not worth dating a liar because there is nothing positive he will bring in your life.

 

Walk away from that relationship and you will, later on, find someone honest with you.

 

Why does he lie to me if he loves me?

Your boyfriend will lie to you even if he loves you if he thinks that he is protecting the relationship from falling apart. Also, he will lie to you when he knows you are not ready for the truth. Especially, if he thinks it will crash you.

 

Lastly…

It’s not good for couples to lie to each other because they will be breaking the relationship gradually. You should always focus on building honesty and trust in a relationship if you want it to last.

 

If you find out that your boyfriend is lying to you then make a point of making him realize that you aren’t comfortable with it and also stop him.

 

Anyway, if you find that the lies don’t affect you or the relationship at any point there is no need to dig deep into these lies. He may be lying to you so that he can keep you safe. Just let it be and focus on your relationship if you can do that.

 

You might end up getting crashed when you find the truth that he has been hiding from you.
