Everyone knows that being in a relationship means being honest, but there are some very specific things you should never lie to your partner about. I think lies are, fairly often, told to keep your significant other happy. After all, you don't want to hurt their feelings, you don't want to make them feel inadequate, and you don't want to rock the relationship. But there are a few things you have to consider when you start thinking that way — is your relationship not strong enough to handle the truth? Is your partner manipulative and incapable of being told something other than what they want to hear? If these things are the case, the relationship isn't worth pursuing.
Relationships are built on a foundation of trust. Without it, there's nothing to build upon. And false trust? It eventually crumbles. But lying to your partner can have a negative effect on you as well. For one thing, you're not in the relationship you want to be in if you're lying to keep a partner happy or to keep the dynamic from changing. And for another? Lying makes you resentful. It seems simple enough to lie about your sex life with your partner because you don't want to hurt their feelings and then, two years later, you find yourself miserable and resentful that you're still not having the sex life you want. It's not fair to then blame your partner when you should've been honest in the first place.
With the exception of a fewwhite lies that are OK to tell your partner, being honest is the most important thing you can do for your relationship. These 13 things you should never lie about may sound like no-brainers, but they can occur more often than you'd think.
