Lies Men and Women Tell….

Thursday Thirteen

This morning the announcers on my favorite local radio station were talking about the top ten lies that men and women tell their spouses, girlfriends and boyfriends. I thought the topic would make an interesting topic for my Thursday Thirteen.

Thirteen Lies Men and Women Tell

1. Both Women and Men: Nothing’s wrong. I’m fine.

2. Men: This will be my last drink.

3. Women: Oh, this isn’t new. I’ve had it for ages.

4. Men: Sorry, I missed your call.

5. Women: It was in the sale.

6. Men: I’m stuck in traffic.

7. Women: I’ve got a headache.

8. Men: I didn’t have that much to drink.

9. Women: It wasn’t that expensive.

10. Men: I’m on my way.

11. Women: I don’t know where it is, I haven’t touched it.

12. Women: No, I didn’t throw it away.

13. Men: No, your bum doesn’t look big in that.

Okay, I confess. Basically I’m a very honest person. I can’t lie to save myself, but I might have used a couple of these white lies in the past.

What about you? Have you used any of these white lies?


  1. Anthony North

    Great list. As for 13, it’s a survival thing ;-)

  2. Marianne

    Oh… maybe one or two… :grin:

  3. Adelle Laudan

    Technically some these aren’t lies. lol
    Happy T13!

  4. Elise Logan

    Oh, a few of those look familiar.

  5. Jennifer Leeland

    How about “Of course you’re the best I’ve ever had, honey!” LOL!!!
    Oh, and have I mentioned how much I love love love your cover for “The Bottom Line”??? Gorrrgeous.

  6. Kimberly Menozzi

    Yup – I’ve used a few of those, too. :lol:

    My hubby is fond of the saying “Lies have short legs” – mainly because he’s absolute rubbish at telling lies. Lucky for me. :)

  7. Darla

    Oh, heaven help me, I’ve used more of the male lines. What does that say about me?

  8. Maria D.

    Love the list…I’ve used #1,#3, #5 and #9…lol…I’ll admit that I’ve also stretched the truth a bit about my weight on my driver’s license…..you know…said that I weigh 10 lbs less than what the scale actually said in the am :blush:

  9. Alice Audrey

    I must be weird. None of these lies comes up much between my dh and I.

  10. Ella Drake

    What? I’ve never used any of these lies. :mrgreen:

  11. Tatiana Caldwell

    This list is all lies, I’m telling you!


  12. Inez Kelley

    Would *I* tell a lie? Never. *dodges lightning*

  13. Mary

    Me? Noooo *crosses fingers behind back and walks away whistling*

  14. Shelley Munro

    Anthony – you’re probably right, but sometimes an honest opinion is okay. ;)

    Adelle – LOL that’s true. they’re sort of half lies, depending on the circumstances.

  15. Shelley Munro

    Jennifer – thanks! I love the cover too. I think it’s very striking.

  16. Janice Seagraves

    When I say I have a headache, I really have a headache. My doctor said I have super sensitive sinuses.

    Er, after reading this list maybe I should have gotten that in writing? :eek:

    Happy TT.

  17. Heather

    Nope, can’t say I’ve ever used ANY of these… :wink:
