When was the last time you bent the truth a little bit? Honesty might be the best policy, but there are some lies that we all tell. Some situations just call for the truth...but a little bent. Here are eight lies that us women tend to tell...how many have you said?

Well, this one is understandable. He’s going to ask at some point, and what are we supposed to say?! You are third best? No, sorry, you’re actually the worst? Okay, so its a lie, but what he doesn’t know won’t hurt him, and if it was that bad we wouldn’t be staying. It’s a nice lie!

I’ll admit that I’m terrible for this...most of the time I haven’t even decided what to wear, and I’ll be utterly frantic. To be fair, this one is a nice lie too. If I said “Give me an hour, and I might be close to being ready, but not entirely happy”, he wouldn’t be too pleased. And we’d always be late. This way, he stays ready, and we leave (just) on time.

We’ll be secretly raging, but when he asks, we are fine. Why? Well if he doesn’t know why we are angry, why should we tell him? He should know, or he obviously doesn’t care. Or he doesn’t know us at all. He knows what he’s done. He can work it out.

Nobody wants the fun of a new purchase ruined by intense questioning on how much it was and where you could of got one cheaper, so ‘it was on sale’ is just a standard reply. He wants us to look good, right?!

It’s not that we don’t want to spend time with your family, it’s just that we like you, and we much prefer our time alone together. Your cousins make us never want children, and we all hate your aunt spitting on her hand and rubbing our cheeks, or asking us how the wedding planning is going.

So you might be a nice guy. A really nice guy. But if the spark isn’t there, we just don’t want to hurt your feelings. So when you want us to give you our number, and you ask if you can call, we’ll smile sweetly and agree, and maybe even act exciting. It’s not to hurt you...its supposed to keep you happy.

If we end an argument by muttering ‘You’re right”, we don’t actually agree. We just don’t want to listen, or argue, anymore, and we don’t want you to fall out with us. So we’ll let you think you win, and then change the subject. We both win!

This is one of those things you don’t need to know. So if you ask, we’ll lose a few kilos, and if you want to know our dress size, look in the label of something we wear. You’ll save a lot of hassle (and lying!).
These aren’t too bad...I mean, I bet men tell worse lies! Can you think of a lie that us women tell? Please tell me about it, I’d love to hear! I got 7 out of 8 here...how well did you do?
