I have a very strict honesty policy, but I also know that sometimes you have to choose your battles.

A strategic tactful fib may be required to keep the peace, yet in my experience, the truth will always come out. Unless it's about the wrinkles forming around my eyes... feel free to lie to me all day long about that.

Anyhoo,  a new study looked at the most common lies men and women tell, and the top lie for BOTH is, "Nothing's wrong, I'm fine".

Here are the top ten lies women tell:

1.  "Nothing's wrong, I'm fine."

2.  "This isn't new, I've had it forever."

3.  "It wasn't that expensive."

4.  "It was on sale."  

5.  "I'm on my way."
