Flirtatious Fibs

Listening to my favorite radio station the other day I came across an interesting tidbit of information: According to Redbook magazine, 48 % of women lie when they flirt. Now although this didn’t at all shock me this got me to thinking, what do women lie about? I have complied a top five list of lies I think women must use when venturing out into the dating scene.

5) “No really, this is my natural hair color.”- Whether the woman’s hair is purple, rainbow or a nice bleach blonde any one woman would like you to believe her hair is natural, no matter how unrealistic that may be. As a guy who is looking to take this flirtation to the next level the best course of action is to smile and agree. Here are some suggested responses: “How do you keep it so shiny?”, “I couldn’t picture you with ANY other hair color.” “Your hair is the most natural looking in the room.” Any of these coy replies are sure to get your lady smiling and interested in the next step.

How could I not think its natural?

4) “I am actually super important at my job.”- Every girl wants to believe that without their pretty little face every day the operation will stop. However, most girls, especially ones in their teens or twenties aren’t quite as important as they’d like to be at work. But, you, Mr. New Guy, you don’t know that. So this is her big chance to seem important. Don’t go ruining it for her. Shower her with awe and praise as she tells you how important she is and how the place just couldn’t go on without her. This is her moment to shine, let her have it.

I even got an award- I am THAT important!

3) “I just don’t have the money to drink tonight”- Did you notice how her eyes became big like a baby deer’s and she cocked her head to the side like a sad baby animal? This is your que to get off your stool and go buy her a drink of her choice. She is by no means too broke to drink but she now has your attention and realizes there is a much cheaper way to drink than spending her money, she can spend yours. If you are interested you better buy this girl a drink or she will move on to the guy at the end of the bar with his credit card ready.

Or she might move on after you buy her the drink…welp maybe next time…

2) “Really, they are JUST friends.” Don’t get me wrong this could be the truth. But in 95 % of situations this is at least a bit of an exaggeration. If the girl you are digging has a few boys hanging around there is a reason to be concerned. She either has a mafia type scenario waiting for you to screw up enough for her to set them loose on you or she has a few back up plans just in case you don’t work out. Before you begin flirting with the “one of the guys” type check your ego at the door this girl is prepared for all you have to bring and she is packing a punch.

Just Friends

1) “I am really (insert age here)”- Any girl no matter what her age has felt the need to lie about their age when flirting. Whether it be the cougar looking to get the 20 year old or it be the 16 year old looking to find her sugar daddy- we have all lied about our age. The important part is to find out how much the age gap really matters. Is this old lady worth putting your college career on hold for? Is this adolescent worth possibly being jailed for? Just remember any time you meet a new girl chances are she is NOT whatever age she tells you she is. This number may not come out until marriage- you have been warned.

Ladies, what lies have you told while flirting with a new cutie? Gentlemen, what are some of the lies the ladies have told you?

  1. the last one for me was more of a misapprehension on my part then a lie but when you meet someone and there drinking at a bar you tend to think there at least 21….

  2. Shae. this post is so cleverly and brilliantly put together!

    I was laughing my ass off at so much of what you shared because I think this goes for both women AND men. And also whether you date women to men, women to women, or men to men. I think all people at one time or another have fibbed (exaggerated). God knows, I HAVE. But shhhhh…don’t tell anyone that, okay?

    Loved the video – Just Friends. Hilarious!

    • Haha I am so glad you like it! I definitely agree that these lies span the board! I am so interested to see other lies that people have used or seen used. Of course these are all from observation I have never lied while flirting myself 😉

  3. Hmm, I wonder what lies I told. I don’t think I’ve lied about my age, people usually peg me younger than I am so I’m usually straightforward if age comes up. I would own up to my hair colour (when I dyed it, which wasn’t all that often). I think my first white hairs were showing up around 22 or so, I wasn’t upset about admiting to covering them.

    I probably did make my job/studies sound more interesting than they were, but I may have been a little self depreciating at the end, like talking about the weird information I’ve learned through my job/studies. I also probably came across as more serious in my flirting than I felt. Flirting was fun, I didn’t always want to follow up on it. Sort of a lie of omission…
