Why Do Men Lie

You asked me why do men lie.
The question took me by surprise.
It's very deep and philosophical but
I'm sure you don't want a long answer.
So, I'll try to keep it short.
There are so many possibilities in my response,
but I think it is mostly an attempt to protect
the friend or friendship. Really, couldn't
you have been a little more specific?
It's just too broad a question, too general.
If you could have given me a specific case,
I could better hypothesize a response.
Some men are driven by hunger for power,
others for acceptance and still others
for the illusion of love and romance
simply to feed their drive for sexual
fulfillment and pleasure. But then,
don't women have these same drives?
From a Theological perspective, it is the
"sin" nature of all mankind (men and women)
to lie. The closer we come to our creator
in a spiritual relationship, the less likely
we are to lie (or conduct other matters of
the heart that can vex the soul like cheating
or stealing). This could also be considered
achieving your "karma" as well. My personal
belief though based on sociological "present
day" society studies is that there is greater
turmoil and considerable loss in fundamental
self-respect and self-esteem resulting in a
greater breakdown in society as a whole.
People are also very "Class" aware of
themselves, and despite what you and I may
think, there is a class order in the US as
well as in other countries that would influence
people to lie. Take for example that country
girl who's BF was from Georgia. I have no
doubt that she lied about her relationship.
She had so many financial problems too.
She was thrown out of her apartment or home
(or they were trying to remove her).
I really think it was a status "thing".
She wanted "acceptance". I suspect that
her lies caught up with her and she
disappeared out of sight for a while
and subsequently reappeared in another
relationship and was talking of marriage
again very quickly but with another man.
I'm amazed at situations like that.
She has a basic necessity needing to be
filled and went to great lengths to
achieve her goals, and did so at the
expense of lies to everyone including
So we have a fundamental breakdown
across society as a whole from all
walks of life, starting with the
leaders in society.
Look at the President of the United
States, A position of tremendous power
across the entire free world, and even
Slick Willy lied. And the world sits
back and laughs!!!!!! I ask you, who
is left to look up to and admire?
Why do men lie??? I really don't know.
