To compensate for my previous long rambling blog, I’m gonna keep this short and sweet:
So, how many times have we all heard that phrase from the mouth of babes? Ok, maybe not babes but these are sweet-talking, seemingly normal guys yet somehow we end up with the same age-old question: why do men say they’ll call and then don’t. What’s the dealio-yo?
I mean, maybe they’re just not that into you. Ok….whatever. But then why lie about it? It certainly is not for the woman’s sake. They’re not lying to your face because they just care oh-so-much about you. So then, why this lie? Is it empowering for them to feel good that someone somewhere is possibly waiting for their call? Do they mean to call but then just don’t? Do they just chicken out and rather lie than actually find another adult way to say “thanks but I’m not really interested right now.” If you’re gonna lie, why not tell a lie which makes you look good and is harmless e.g. I actually have a girlfriend or I’m gay. Whatever you wanna say is fine, except don’t lie to someone’s face about your intentions. That’s just low! And a little pathetic (just calling a spade a spade).
Why in the name of all that is holy do men tell this stupid lie?
