When he uses this word (think: "I left the bar at six" vs. "I went home at six"), there's some kind of drama involved. Maybe he got stuck in traffic or is hiding something he did that he shouldn't have.

Ma'am,

 

I would never take advice from "that" woman.  Why would I do that?

 

By the way, I have a great relationship.

Whether it's a male or female, unless you have your head up your butt or you are so attracted to bull and deep in denial, a person can tell a liar and manipulator within a couple weeks at the most after they meet them. 

Use your head, think logically, and pay attention to red flags or warning signs.

Put the libido away and get to know a person first before you get emotionally involved.

And my thoughts (I am a woman) why choose men specifically for this load of crap, mix and match it baby.

Nothing is black and white so why try to make it so. There are tell tale signs someone is shovelling the manure, some are really smooth and great at it and it does take more then a couple weeks to weed them out especially if you only see them a couple times a week but they do slip up eventually. Go with your gut people and pay attention to details.

Women have been master manipulators since the dawn of time... using their "sexyness" to entice men to do their bidding.  They lie on a daily basis about the way they "really" look through the biggest female lie of all... makeup.  Most women lie about their age... about their weight... about their hair color... about how many men they've slept with... the list goes on and on.    Wonder what kind of words "they" use.
