Who Lies More

British men are more likely to tell lies than British women and feel less guilty about it, says the results of a poll of 3,000 people. Researchers found that the average British man tells three lies every day, that's equivalent to 1,092 a year. The average women lies about twice a day for 728 times a year.

Twenty-five per cent of men say they lied to their mother, but only twenty percent of women admit to having lied to their mum.

Seems like half the lies are used by both, as the bold ones below.

Men's most used lies -

1. I didn't have that much to drink
2. Nothing's wrong, I'm fine
3. I had no signal
4. It wasn't that expensive
5. I'm on my way
6. I'm stuck in traffic
7. No, your bum (butt) doesn't look big in that
8. Sorry, I missed your call
9. You've lost weight
10. It's just what I've always wanted

Women's most used lies -

1. Nothing's wrong, I'm fine
2. I don't know where it is, I haven't touched it
3. It wasn't that expensive
4. I didn't have that much to drink
5. I've got a headache
6. It was in the sale
7. I'm on my way
8. Oh, I've had this ages
9. No, I didn't throw it away
10. It's just what I've always wanted
