It's very sad that people play with their partners emotions. They must live hollow and unsatisfied lives. An excellent piece that captures this treatment very well. I saw something recently on TV where a dad was trying to warn his daughter that boys will tell her anything to get her into bed the biggest lie being I love you. I think it's standard that whatever the sex of the person if they have an underlying intent then they will say whatever gets them results. The only way to avoid this is to take plenty of time to get to know someone in different situations before you trust them fully.
