Ian McKellen’s film titled The Good Liar (2019, Bill Condon) is currently in theaters near you. It tells the story of a consummate conman named Roy Courtnay (played by McKellen) who, this time around, had set his eyes on the recently widowed Betty McLeish (played by Helen Mirren), a millionaire. He plans on tricking her out of her money and it would’ve been just a simple swindling job but it’s as they say, things don’t always go as planned and before Roy knows it, the situation had already gone complex. The film also stars openly gay actor Russell Tovey as Stephen—Beth’s suspicious grandson, Jim Carter as Vincent, Mark Lewis Jones as Bryn, and Lucian Msamati as Beni to name a few.
Anyway, in accordance with the movie’s theme, Queerty had taken the time to ask their readers about the biggest lies they’ve ever told their dates and here are the answers:
- that I got to be up early in the morning
- my age
- that I topped
- that I was single
- that I am looking for love
Watch their interview below:
While it is said that a lot of people lie about their age to their dates, it is not the first in the list at all. The top lie that people tell their dates is said to be their sexual history.
Of course at some point of our life, we’ll all have a sexual history but others say it’s not so much about the number of partners that we’ve had although that could be a concern to some people. Rather, it’s about lying regarding their sexual health that concerns others because sometimes, the offended party only learns there’s something to worry about when they’ve already contracted, say, chlamydia or syphilis from their partner.
What about you, guys? What’s the biggest lie you’ve ever told your dates? Share with us your thoughts and stories in the comments section below.
When, as a member of The Academy, I was asked if I had a “Lady Friend”? I hesitated and then said: “Not Yet, Sir!” To which he compounded: “A Nice-Looking Cadet without a Lady Friend”? My goose was being delivered to the oven… I explained that I had no time for ladies as my academics, athletics, clubs and religious obligations left little time for anything else. His eyebrows rose exponentially and with a shit-eating grin, said: “Ill be watching and I will expect you to show an interest in ladies in the near future.” Suffice to say, he took a… Read more »
The Academy was a little ‘stuffy,” what with all the.church nutters running that place. At March AFB, they had the Pink Platoon…where they stuck all the gay guys. I drove the transit line that connected March, then HQ15thAF, to downtown Riverside. They’d get a pass for Saturday night, head for the bus stop, and I’d pick them up for the ride down Box Springs Grade to downtown’s bus station, where they’d deboard and walk a block to the Circus Room, the nearest old-time gay bar of choice. On the last trip of the night, which departed at 2320, they’d all… Read more »
What years did you attend The Academy? Did you ever go to The Congress in Poughkeepsie, New York?
SPEAK OUT: WHAT’S THE BIGGEST LIE YOU’VE EVER TOLD YOUR DATES? Is this something we’re supposed to be proud of? Is it something we’re supposed to cheer on as awesome? Lying is bullshit. Yet, gay men are notorious for it. Understood for it. There’s somehow a sick acceptance that that’s the way it is among “them.” It’s all part of a stereotypical lifestyle that leaves anyone who’s not LGTBQwhatever laughing at us for our stupidity. And somehow finding reasons to not hire us, or give us housing, or be our friends, etc. If you don’t live a truthful life, start… Read more »
“I have a small dick.” great lie
It is the “Motion-In-The-Ocean!
The biggest lie I ever told a date was that they were great in bed, when they really were bad at kissing and
sex, and made more growling and moaning noises than really were needed.
The “date” is going down the dumper REAL fast, for reasons I won’t divulge. It was worse than a root canal. Fortunately, I knew the waiter at the restaurant we were at, he asked me how it was going as I was heading to the men’s room, “Please…here’s an extra ten on top of the tip. Wait a few, then come around asking for me by name. Then I’ll raise my finger, you come tell me that I have an emergency telephone call…PLEASE?” He winked, and said, “5 minutes. There’s a cab already out front, I’ll get the valet to… Read more »
I’m rich and have a 12 inch dick
You may be rich but you have a poor imagination!
My comment was a joke, perhaps the humorless poots here simply didn’t get it. Not that unusual for (so called) “Academy” attendees.
I understood the joke and I replied, likewise.
I do tend to be “Cut & Dry.”
But, quite frankly, this man has seen more Penis that most mortals have had, either a toothbrush in their mouths or a cotton swab in their ears!
I gave “Prostate Exams.”
I have nothing to hide, but perhaps a bit of shame: I have a steady fuck bud who as best as I can tell only fucks around with me – at least, that’s what he tells me and I believe him. We’re both married to women and deeply hidden in the closet. I don’t exactly tell him I don’t fuck around with anyone else, but maybe lead him on to think so. But have others – always safe sex, so I’m not deceiving him in a dangerous way. Different guys fulfill different needs for me. As I near age 60,… Read more »
“but maybe lead him on to think so. But have others”, so you’re lying.
I have to go….It’s not you, it’s me….I need to focus on me right now.
im pretty well kept, I lie about 10 years. No one guesses my real age. As compaired to most other guys…… I have been blessed.
