How Often Do Lovers Lie?
Trying to determine how often romantic partners deceive each other is not easy. In many cases, people are not even aware they are lying because it comes so naturally (see lying comes easy).
Making it even more difficult to study, everyone likes to think that they are fairly honest and candid with those they love. People often misperceive their own deceptive behavior.
But with that said, research tends to show that loved ones are a lot less truthful than they appear to be:
- surveys on lying
- experiments on deception
- daily journals
- and research on infidelity and betrayal...
... all reveal that husbands and wives, boyfriends and girlfriends, frequently lie to those they love.
