Hey---this stuff comes from Dr. Phil---so you know it's gotta be gospel, right??? Let's be honest -- everybody lies. And before you start protesting, we're not talking big whoppers, just the little white kind. And we know you do it, because we do too.

 

According to Dr. Phil McGraw (yes, that Dr. Phil) by the time they are 60 years old, men have told more than 100,000 lies and women have uttered some 50,000 untruths. Wow. Men lie twice as much as women.

 

 

So why do we lie?

 

AskMen.com says men lie to keep a relationship healthy. And women, they say, lie to protect his feelings or save her own skin.

 

The top four lies women tell, according to Dr. Phil:

"I'm fine. There's nothing wrong."

"Oh, this isn't new! I've had this old thing forever."

"Oh, this was cheap! I got it on sale."

"I've got a headache."

 

The top four lies men tell, according to Dr. Phil:

"I'm fine. There's nothing wrong."

"This is my last drink."

"No, that doesn't make you look fat."

"Hey, I'm on the way!" [But he's not even close to being on the way.]
