Probelm is, men/husbands typically are not good liars.

Women on the other hand, are professionals. Wink

Written by a woman, so it is probably a lie.

Wives say all those same things.

No.  The closest would be number 1, but the key is to preempt the question by complimenting your spouse.   "Does x make me look fat?" is a stupid question, because there is no answer that a woman will like, except, "You're not fat."

Gloria: [in bed] Honey? My mouth is dry. Honey. I'm thirsty.

Billy: Umm... [gets some water] ... There you go, honey.

Gloria: When I said I was thirsty, it doesn't mean I want a glass of water.

Billy: It doesn't?
  
Gloria: You're missing the whole point of me saying I'm thirsty. If I have a problem you're not supposed to solve it. Men always make the mistake of thinking they can solve a woman's problem. It makes them feel omnipotent.

Billy: Omnipotent? Did you have a bad dream?
  
Gloria: It's a way of controlling a woman.

Billy: Bringing them a glass of water?

Gloria: Yes. I read it in a magazine. See, if I'm thirsty, I don't want a glass of water. I want you to sympathize. I want you to say: ''Gloria, I, too, know what it feels like to be thirsty. I, too, have had a dry mouth." I want you to connect with me through sharing and understanding the concept of dry mouthedness.  
                  
Billy: This is all in the same magazine?

#4 isn't a lie so much as code, or at least it was for me. It's a polite way of saying, 'I don't want to talk about it, so would you please stop nagging me to talk about it?'  Tongue

When women say it, they want to talk about it.  Most men think, "Oh, she's okay then."

Why do all these articles about communicating with your spouse advocate treating each other like children?

I lie to my wife all the time.  Most of it is:

Wife: Are you even listening to me?

Me:  Uh huh

Wife: What did I just say?

Me: Ummm, you were expressing your opinions and I was just thinking how important those opinions are.

Wife: What opinions?

Me:  All of them.  Every single one.

My wife asked if I was listening once, so I told her that my small mind can only take so much, and her beauty overloaded my senses rendering my ears useless.  She just gave me a strange look and went on talking.  I do have to say that it worked a lot better than one time when she asked me if I was listening and I replied, "You were talking to me?  All I heard was a bunch of noise.  Now I know what that was."  Another one never to use (and I know this from experience): "If God wanted men to listen to women, he would have put speakers in their boobs."

LOL!! I will have to try out that first one.  Although, my wife typically does not take attempts of flattery well.  We have more of an "insult each other humorously" type relationship.
