We are currently on vacation so enjoy this past blog until we get back,
A few months back, we talked about how 37% of men and 56% of women have lied to their significant other about money and how 2/3 of people believe that honesty about money is as important as being faithful.
During the topic, a Rock-A-Holic named Kelliton called in to tell us when he’s had to lie about money.
Kelliton is trying to become a fire fighter and to make money; he works in Alaska during the summer which leaves him with enough money to support himself for the rest of the year.
He has to lie to his girlfriend regularly about money because when he comes back, she will try to spend it.
He brought up a very good point; some women will be upset if you lie to them, but on the other hand, those women want you to lie to them at the same time. Has anyone else noticed this?
We as guys should be able to say to our girls that we don’t have enough money to do blank or that we have to leave by a certain time everyone has to be ready by that time, but it doesn’t work that way with some women.
For some reason, some women can’t accept these absolutes so we have to make someone else the bad guy. Whether it’s saying that the dinner reservation is at 5:30 when it’s at 6:30 just so we can make sure she’s ready on time or telling her that the reason we can’t go to a five star restaurant is because we only have 30 dollars for dinner that night.
So even though women tell us they don’t like it when men lie to them, it seems like some women secretly want to be lied to in order to have things go smoother. That makes me think that the number of people who think lying about money is worse than cheating should be lower.
