Men rarely speak honestly on their first date because they want to impress the woman. Although they can lie about all kinds of things, there are ten biggest lies that are common, and it is your choice whether to forgive them for it.
Here is a list of those 10 lies that men tell on their first date.
1. His money situation
Let’s be real: historically, men have been judged by their earnings and ability to hunt or provide. He may make himself sound more comfortable or even brag about purchases or vacations to make himself look like a big shot in order to impress you.
Don’t be surprised if you eventually find out he doesn’t have a huge salary or that he’s in debt.

2. His living situation
If he’s living with family or roommates, he may fear that this situation makes it appear as if he’s not able to provide. So, if this is the case, he probably won’t lie about it, but he won’t mention it unless you ask
And if you ask and he answers, he may make it sound more temporary or like it’s been a briefer stay than it actually has been.
3. If there’s another woman
Bam! This is not a white lie. Oh no, no, no, it is not. He may be dating or seeing someone or they may be “on the rocks” or he may be shopping around.
Now, not every guy is doing this. I’m only saying that some might be.
4. His fitness habits
He’s heard you like six-packs and he may ramble on a bit longer than is necessary about his fitness habits. He may say he goes to the gym religiously, which really means once a week, like church on Sundays.
Unless he’s heavily active, he may just not want to come off as lazy or unattractive.
5. His last breakup
Perhaps he was a cheater or the one to blame in his last relationship. Or, maybe his last partner really broke his heart.
Unless he’s all about sharing everything, most likely, he’s going to make it sound better than it truly was, or at least on your first date he will.
6. His past
If he’s got a former addiction or perhaps cheated on his ex-spouse, he’s not coming clean about that on date one or, perhaps, ever. And if you do ask or press, he may outright lie until he feels like you know him enough that you would accept him no matter what.
7. His job
He’s not going to outright lie and tell you he’s a doctor if he’s a janitor, but he might stretch the truth slightly to make himself sound better.
Think about the ways in which a bird may show off his feathers or puff out his chest. It’s similar. It’s done to impress you, although being genuine in this day and age is really the most impressive.
8. His track record of commitment
Unless he’s a solid guy who sticks to monogamous relationships (and there are many men like that), he’s going to avoid too much scrutiny of his track record.
He might lie about it or stretch the truth to keep you interested and not judge him right off the bat. He’s not going to mention any of his player ways if he’s got any.
9. His friends
He’ll talk about his friends, but he won’t mention if some of them are particularly troublesome. He won’t be mentioning that he likes to hang with the guys, sometimes more than you, simply because he doesn’t want to turn you off or have you think he’s running in the wrong circle.
He might also selectively brag about friends he thinks you’ll be impressed by!
10. His real intentions
I went out with a guy who stressed how he was very busy. I thought nothing of it. I am a single parent. I am always busy. Well, we made plans for a second date. Before we went out, he started to express what “he was looking for” since he was busy.
