I think that it could be that lying would get them a result that would be defferint than the one they would receive if they told the truth. They don't know if the woman will be okay with them having a relationship with someone or not prior to lying. So, they don't risk it. They most likely just want to get in her pants. Or, they are looking, at that day and time, for someone before breaking up with the girlfriend or wife. There is not one easy answer for why someone does anything, especially on this level of thinking or feeling. The thing to do is to protect yourself by getting to know someone over time. That way, if something is being covered up, you will notice things about their behavior that doesn't add up or is suspicious. Most people can keep an act up for three or four months. So, give a relationship at least this much time before taking it to the next level. Don't invest yourself too deeply with anyone until you feel you really know them and this takes time. Keep dating other people until one person has shown you that they deserve your trust and love. Love isn't instant. It is hard to learn. Even love at first sight will take time to nurture and grow. If someone gives you the time to make this happen they deserve your trust.

He is honest. That is the problem. The infrastructure is set up for dis-honest, greedy, self serving polititions-like most Republicans.

Actually its common to look away when your telling the truth since you're recalling an event. People who lie tend to make eye contact more to make it seem as though they aren't lying, its a myth.

The lack of eye contact is a myth. Liars increase eye contact in hope of you thinking that eye contact equals truth.

When I lie no one can tell, everyone just believes me. It's cool sometimes, but its kind of like having the power of invisibility but you really wanna show off a new hair cut. I'm just kidding, none of that ever happened, but you believed it. See what I mean? ... ... ...

That's very true, whenever I lie I make DIRECT eye contact but I am overly defensive.
