Well lads, it's official -us men really do tell more lies than our 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 little white lies we tell? The top 10 lies that men tell women...
1. 'I didn't have that much to drink'
According to the Science Museum's survey, this is the most popular and the most common subject men lie about? Our drinking habits. Which begs the obvious question, so what? I always knock a few pints off the previous night's tally when my better half is within hearing range. It saves her from worrying - and is thus not so much a fib as an act of kindness.
2. 'Nothing's wrong, I'm fine'
Saying I'm fine' 'nothing's wrong’, is the second most likely lie to be told by the average male.
3. 'I had no signal'
There seems to be a distinct lack of mobile phone signal in the UK, according to us men.
4. 'It wasn't that expensive'
it seems that us lads are up for a spot of retail therapy every now and then - and we tell porkies about how much things cost!
5. 'I'm on my way'
Probably not according to the study - lying about your whereabouts is the fifth most popular lie for men to tell their partners.
6. '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 our ladies are always wondering what were really up to lads!
7. 'No, your bum doesn't look big in that'
when your other half asks the question does my bum look big in this? - we may not be telling the truth!
8. 'Sorry, I missed your call'
it's quite possible that we are busy with something else but - according to the survey - we might just be ignoring our partners calls. Saying 'sorry, I missed your call' is the eighth most popular lie that men tell women.
9. 'You've lost weight'
The ninth most popular lie for men to tell women is 'you've lost weight'.
10. 'It's what I've always wanted'
obviously us lads don’t want to upset our partners feelings by saying that the gift they have just received isn't quite to their taste...
