These are the most popular lies people tell their partners
Any of these sound familiar?
We're certain that you're all strong contenders for the award of 'Boyfriend/Girlfriend of the Year', but there will always come a moment in any relationship when you might have to bend the truth in your favour.
Note how we didn't use the word 'lie' here.
See, there's a difference between revealing the whole truth and certain aspects of it. Sure, sure. Let's just keep saying that to ourselves over and over.
That's not shady at all.
Anywho, according to a new survey of 2000 adults, three-quarters of people have admitted that they've lied to their partners. We're shocked.
One in 10 people stated that they lie quite regularly, with men expected to tell more porkies than their partners.
The classic "I am listening’" takes the prestigious top spot as the number one fib, with the equally popular "I only had one drink", "I didn’t see your text", and "I had an orgasm" also ranking highly.
Here's the list in full.
