THOU SHALT NOT LIE!
Every single woman I know has lied about her relationship status at one point or another. Sometimes the quickest way to get a man making unwanted advances to leave you alone is to tell him that you have a boyfriend or a husband. There are still some men out there who can respect that and those that cannot I quickly end their advances with, “I can’t help you. I’m faithful.“ That usually shuts a brother right up.
I mean how do you politely tell someone that you don’t find them attractive, they stank or they’re missing a few too many teeth for you? If you say, "You're not my type," you will have walked yourself into a game of 21 questions about what IS your type. Or it may be that I’m getting that LOSER, RUN! vibe from them. So on occasion, I will lie about my relationship or marital status to avoid having to explain why he cannot have my number even though I’m unmarried and not in a relationship.
Well, recently while waiting at the light a gentleman pulled up beside me in a customized sports car and told me I was beautiful. I am always grateful for a compliment no matter who it comes from. So, I smiled and politely said thank you. I wasn’t feeling him at all. I don’t know what it was but something inside me said keep it moving. And I’ve learned through trial and error to trust my gut. It knows what it’s talking about.
Next, he asked me if was I married. I lied and said yes. He said he could respect that but then he proceeded to tell me he was a deacon at his church, which shall remain nameless, and if my husband ever stopped treating me right to come look him up. He ended by asking me if my husband was treating me right as if to confirm that he had no chance. I assured him my imaginary husband was making me very happy. I had to laugh at that. The devil shole is busy. I’m sure his pastor and God appreciated him giving me an invitation to begin an illicit love affair during morning worship service. I bet my Bible he wanted to quote me his favorite scriptures, break out the holy oil and lay hands on me. LOL
All I can say is some men are hilarious! Pray for him and me. I probably need to stop lying. Let the church say AMEN.
