Men tell more lies than women: survey
“Love all, trust a few” - but whatever you do, don’t believe men.
A new study reveals the Bard was not far off, though it suggests one sex is rather more reliable than the other.
According to the survey, the average male tells 1,092 lies every year - roughly three a day.
And in so doing, he is less likely to suffer a guilty conscience than his female counterpart.
By contrast, the average woman will come out with 728 porkies per year - fibbing twice a day.
And while men said their lies were most likely to relate to their drinking habits, the most popular female falsehood is: “Nothing’s wrong, I’m fine.”
According to the findings, people are most likely to spin a yarn to their mothers with 25 per cent of men and 20 per cent of women admitting to this.
