Top 4 Lies Men and Women Tell

submitted on December 8, 2010 by jack69darin in "Member's Lounge"
So when was the last time you lied--we're talking little lies here, not whoppers--to your lover? And don't even think of saying, "What? I never lie!" You do, too!

According to Dr. Phil McGraw, by the time they are 60 years old, men have told more than 100,000 lies and women have uttered some 50,000 untruths.

"It's interesting because men lie twice as much as women," Dr. Phil said. "On average, men lie six times a day. Women lie three times a day."

Why do we lie to each other? AskMen.com says men lie to keep a relationship healthy. "The trick is in knowing what she wants to hear, even if it means seriously stretching the truth," says AskMen.com relationship correspondent Matthew Fitzgerald.

Women lie to their man for several reasons, but primarily to protect his feelings or save her butt.

The top four lies women tell, according to Dr. Phil:

1. I'm fine. There's nothing wrong.

2. Oh, this isn't new! I've had this old thing forever.

3. Oh, this was cheap! I got it on sale.

4. I've got a headache.


The top four lies men tell, according to Dr. Phil:

1. I'm fine. There's nothing wrong.

2. This is my last drink.

3. No, that doesn't make you look fat.

4. Hey, I'm on the way! (But he's not even almost on the way.)

    Agree with all the lies, but doubt 100,000 lies have been conjured up since most a just repetitive, even at the ripe age of 60!

      Or I'll be right over and the man shows up 2 hours later. I really do believe men lie 2x as much. When my son went to work w/his dad once he came to me in shock saying, "Dad lies a lot at work about everything!" and proceeded to tell me all the lies he'd told!
