Don’t believe what they’re saying; honesty isn’t always going to be the best policy. There are just some things that are better left unsaid. You don’t have to be telling your man everything – especially when you know that the truth is only going to mess everything up and complicate the entire situation. There are things such as white lies – these are lies that you tell when you know that the truth can be potentially harmful to a situation. And you don’t want to be inflicting unnecessary harm on your relationship just because you were too liberal with the stuff that you blurt out.
So, if you’re wondering about the things that you don’t have to be truthful to your boyfriend about, you’ve come to the right place. Here are a few secrets that are okay for you to keep from your man.
1. YOU DON’T HAVE TO TELL HIM ABOUT HIS TERRIBLE STYLE.
You don’t want to be hurting his feelings by telling him outright that you hate the way that he dresses. But if you really want to do something about his wardrobe, you can give him subtle hints and tips about how he can style his clothes.
2. YOU DON’T HAVE TO TELL HIM THAT HE SHARES SIMILARITIES/DIFFERENCES WITH YOUR EX.
Granted, he’s a guy that you like and there are just certain characteristics and traits that you tend to look for in your partners. So he’s bound to share a few similarities with your ex. And even though that’s the truth, that’s not something that you necessarily have to be sharing to him.
3. YOU DON’T HAVE TO TELL HIM THAT YOU HATE HIS MOTHER.
It’s always hard when you don’t get along with the mother of the man that you love. But at the end of the day, if he really loves you, then that shouldn’t matter. But you shouldn’t make it seem to him that you’re unwilling to get along with the woman who raised him to be who he is today.
4. YOU DON’T HAVE TO TELL HIM ABOUT A CRUSH YOU MIGHT HAVE ON ANOTHER GUY.
Hey, just because you’re in a relationship doesn’t mean that you’re automatically going to be blind to other good looking people. You’re still going to have your fair share of crushes. And that’s okay. It’s only normal. However, these are also crushes that you don’t have to be telling your boyfriend about either.
5. YOU DON’T HAVE TO TELL HIM THAT HE ISN’T THAT GOOD IN THE BEDROOM.
Instead of destroying his spirit by telling him that he isn’t good in bed, you can take a more subtle approach to improving his bedroom skills. Remember that his skills in the sack are very big for him. He can be very sensitive about it. So instead of telling him outright that he sucks, just try leading him into certain positions as you’re doing it.
6. YOU DON’T HAVE TO TELL HIM ABOUT THAT RANDOM STRANGER WHO HARMLESSLY FLIRTED WITH YOU.
Hey, if you’re not wearing an engagement ring, then you’re free game in the eyes of all strangers. And if some random dude approaches you to flirt with you, just politely decline him and tell him that you’re unavailable. And these aren’t things that your man has to know about. It’s only going to rile him up over nothing.
7. YOU DON’T HAVE TO TELL HIM THAT YOU THINK HIS FRIEND/S IS/ARE ATTRACTIVE.
Again, you’re going to have a few crushes – and sometimes, these crushes may be on his friends. But it’s not really a problem unless you start acting on it. And if you’re just keeping these crushes to yourself, then it’s completely harmless.
8. YOU DON’T HAVE TO GOSSIP TO HIM ABOUT THE FAILED RELATIONSHIPS OF YOUR FRIENDS.
Men hate drama – and if your boyfriend is like most men, he isn’t going to want to hear about the drama that’s going on between your friends and their boyfriends. He isn’t going to want to include himself in that narrative; so it’s better to not drag him into all of that.
9. YOU DON’T HAVE TO TELL HIM THAT YOU DON’T LIKE HOW HE’S HANDLING HIS MONEY.
Money is always sensitive especially in a relationship. So, unless you and your guy are actually sharing your finances, then you have no right to be telling him how he’s spending his money – especially when you’re going to approach it in a very hostile manner.
10. YOU DON’T HAVE TO TELL HIM THAT YOU’RE THINKING OF BREAKING UP WITH HIM.
Don’t give him something to worry about unless you’re absolutely sure of it.
11. YOU DON’T HAVE TO TELL HIM THAT YOUR FRIENDS DON’T LIKE HIM.
Yes, it would be nice for you to have all of your friends be fond of your guy. But he can’t please everybody. And you don’t necessarily have to tell him that certain people don’t like him. This might create unnecessary tension and drama in your social circle.
