(Yahoo) - The average dude fabricates something six times a day-that’s twice as often as women-and with #LiesMenTellWomen trending on Twitter right now, some dudes are being called out. To try to get why guys are so crafty, we reached out to male relationship experts. Here are the most common whoppers men tell their girlfriends and wives-and what the real deal is behind each.
Lie # 10: “I’m Stuck in Traffic”
Lie # 9: “It Wasn’t That Expensive”
Lie # 8: “I’m on My Way”
Lie # 7:”I Didn’t Have Too Much to Drink”
Lie # 6: “Sorry, I Missed Your Call,”
Lie # 5: “My Battery Died,”
Lie # 4: “I Had No Signal”
Lie # 3: “No, Your Butt Doesn’t Look Big in That”
Lie # 2:”This Will Be My Last Beer”
Lie # 1: “Nothing’s Wrong, I’m Fine”
I don’t doubt that these are the most popular sentences men say to women, I’m sure they are. But my problem comes with calling them lies. Do chicks count these as lies? Maybe they’re stretches of the truth, but I wouldn’t consider them flatout lies. Lying to your significant other is shit like “No I didn’t fuck that stripper in Vegas” or “No I didn’t see my ex out the other night,” not shit like “those jeans don’t make you look fat.” Telling your girlfriend that she looks great in ugly jeans or that you didn’t get too drunk is necessary for survival. I just fucking hate lists and shit like this for girls. It’s all common sense. If you have to ask if you look fat in a dress, you do. If you have to ask if he’s checking out another girl at the bar, he is. And if you have to read a Yahoo top 10 list for relationship advice, he’s 100% fucking your best friend right now as you scroll down.
PS – too many of those lies are based on phone calls. Who the fuck uses a phone to call people? If you make my mobile texting device ring you’re gonna be dumped in a heartbeat. No lie.
