#36, it's quite simple, actually. When a guy lies, you will be impressed until you find out the truth. He is betting that he'll get laid before you find out the truth and become less impressed with him. At that point, either the sex is so good, you don't care that he lied, or you'll leave him after he got what he wanted in the first place. Both are wins for this kind of guy. The scheme doesn't work if the lie is exposed before the sex, but sociopaths like that won't regret that, but just try the scam on a new victim. Does that answer your question?
@44 Yep, that's basically why Barney Stinson in How I Met Your Mother does it. He lies and makes up ridiculous stories so he can get laid, he's not interested in a in a long-term relationship. It's pretty easy for him too because most of the girls he finds are really stupid and believe anything he tells them.
I don't think he was planning on getting close in the way you mean here. as perdix has already eloquently stated, men who lie like this only care about getting close physically as fast as they can. its sad really, dooming any chance they had at a real, fruitful relationship for the sake of trying to get in a girls pants asap. if you want to get into a girls pants so bad, why not do it by telling her the truth so that way you can do it multiple times because she wasnt duped into thinking you are someone you are not and then shuns you when your lie falls apart. I may pity op. I may be a virgin, but I always found myself in quite a happy state having a girl to talk to about who I really am and how I really feel. why the **** would I pass up the opportunity of talking to someone who gives a shit about my life, for the sake of maybe possibly getting the chance to use them for my own temporary gain. that is if you don't count the sub-scum level cases where men do this for the bragging rights and then tarnish a good woman's reputation for the purpose of self gratification...wow, where the **** did all this writing come from O.o (rant over)
Yes, but it's not you OP. Good luck bullshitting your way out of this one.
Way to go! Seriously, starting off the relationship based on lies. FML for her.
