 Well ladies, it's official - men really do tell more lies than women. A recent survey commissioned by the Science Museum found that the average male tells around 1,092 lies a year - that's roughly three a day!
So just what are these porkies that women are being told by the men in their lives? Most common ones are revealed below: 

'I didn't have that much to drink'
According to the Science Museum's survey, this is the most popular lie that men tell women. ladies also use it on the lads, but not as frequently.

 'Nothing's wrong, I'm fine'
Women aren't the only ones who lie about their feelings - men do it too! Saying 'nothing's wrong, I'm fine' is the second most likely lie to be told by the average male.

'Network problem’
How many times have you heard this one, ladies? He couldn’t get into touch because the line was bad or no network.

'It wasn't that expensive'
It's a well known fact that ladies love to shop - but it seems that the boys are also up for a spot of retail therapy every now and then - and they are telling wives porkies about their purchases, too!

 'I'm on my way'

Is he really on his way? Probably not according to the study - lying about their whereabouts is the fifth most popular lie for men to tell their partners.

'I'm stuck in traffic'
The study found that the average male uses 'I'm stuck in traffic' as an excuse rather frequently - no wonder ladies are always wondering what you're up to lads!

 'Sorry, I missed your call'

If your other half doesn't answer the phone, then it's quite possible that he is busy with something else but - according to the survey - he might just be ignoring your call. Saying 'sorry, I missed your call' is the eighth most popular lie that men tell women.

 'You are fine'
Compliments from the man in a lady’s life are always welcome - but not when they're fibs! A popular lie for men to tell women is 'you are fine the way you are' when you should be losing weight because he likes your big backyard.

'It's what I've always wanted'
Both men and women are guilty of telling this lie - obviously neither sex wants to upset the other's feelings by saying that the gift they have just received isn't quite to their taste...

@ poster, that research is flawed because I think women tell more lies than men. I mean it is all too clear on their painted faces and lips.
