Apparently every female stand-up comic in history was RIGHT. Men DO lie a lot.
According to a new study, the average man tells three lies a day. The average woman only tells ONE. And men are less likely to feel GUILTY about their lies. 23% of men say they feel guilty when they lie, versus 62% of women.
Both men and women say they're most likely to lie to their BOSS, followed by family members and their significant other. And men are more likely to lie to their friends than women.
The study also found the top five lies men and women tell.
The Top Five Lies Men Tell:
#1.) Yes, I've done that.
#2.) I didn't have a cell phone signal.
#3.) I'm on my way.
#4.) I didn't see that you called or texted.
#5.) I don't look at other women.
The Top Five Lies Women Tell:
#1.) I'm fine.
#2.) I'm on my way.

#4.) You look really nice.
#5.) I didn't have a cell phone signal.
