It should come as no surprise that men and women lie to each other. In fact, if that does come as a surprise, I’m fairly certain your significant other is cheating on you.

However, an Australian advertising agency, The Works, decided to investigate the matter in order to find out exactly which lies men and women tell each other the most. And by “investigate,” I mean they pulled the info from a survey previously conducted by 20th Century Fox, and made it look pretty for the Internet.

The number one result for both men and women was “nothing’s wrong,” or “I’m fine.” But after that, things change.

Lies Women Tell Men:

  1. ‘Nothing’s wrong, I’m fine’
  2. 'Oh, this isn’t new, I’ve had it for ages’
  3. 'It wasn’t that expensive’
  4. 'It was on sale’
  5. 'I’m on my way’
  6. 'I don’t know where it is, I haven’t touched it’
  7. 'I didn’t have that much to drink’
  8. 'I’ve got a headache’
  9. 'No, I didn’t throw it away’
  10. 'Sorry, I missed your call’

Lies Men Tell Women:

  1. 'Nothing’s wrong, I’m fine’
  2. 'This will be my last drink’
  3. 'No, your bum doesn’t look big in that’
  4. 'I had no signal’
  5. 'My battery died’
  6. 'Sorry, I missed your call’
  7. 'I didn’t have that much to drink’
  8. 'I’m on my way’
  9. 'It wasn’t that expensive’
  10. 'I’m stuck in traffic’

Given that this project was run out of Australia, I’m surprised there weren’t more wallaby-related lies.

“Sorry I’m late! A wallaby stole the keys to me ute! Bloody 'ell!”
