With the new year here---we gotta be honest here----we all lie.  And before you start a little protest here---I'm not talking great big lies, but those proverbial little white lies.   I do it, you do it and we all do it.    And I found out some things about lies---courtesy of Dr. Phil McGraw---yes Oprah's Dr. Phil.   And Dr. Phil says by the time we hit 60 years of age--get this---Men will have told more than 100,000 lies and women will have lied over 50,000 times.   So--YES---Men will lie twice as much as women.

So why do we lie?  Dr. Phil says that 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.]

Now you know the truth about LIES!
