My boyfriend constantly lies about using pornography

I am a very attractive woman and I have a great sex life with my boyfriend. I know that he is very much in love with me.

But, in the past month, he has racked up $140 in porn rentals. And he spends most of his free time looking at porn on the internet. I’ve told him that the porn and dating sites really hurt my feelings.

This will be the 6th time he lied to be about stopping.

I don’t know if I should trust him?

If he loves me why does he lie to me so much?

Response:

People often lie the most to those they love simply because there is more at stake. In a close relationship there can be a lot to lose by telling the truth (see why lovers lie).

And partners are more likely to lie when their actions cause harm or disappointment (see when lovers lie).

It is also common for men, in particular, to lie about viewing pornography (see what lovers lie about).

But, if his pornography is a problem which keeps emerging and it impacts your relationships, net addiction, offers a lot of practical advice for dealing with the issue.

Hope everything works out for the best.
