Okay, we’ll own up. We lie to men as often as they lie to us. But our intentions are not bad - we just don’t want to make life messier than it already is. And we all do this! Don’t believe us? Just read on and see how many of these teensy-weensy little white lies women tell men you’ve been guilty of! (Trust us, we’re not judging. ;))


1. I’m out with my girlfriends. Yes, only my girlfriends.


Translation: Please stop being so jealous and possessive. There are guys around too, but I can’t tell you because you’re going to hyperventilate and ruin my evening.

2. Um, stop, I have my period.

Translation: It’s not “THAT time of the month”. I just don’t really feel like doing it.

3. I’ll be ready in 5 minutes.

Translation: Never gonna happen in the Kingdom of Woman.

4. Don’t worry, I bought it on sale.

Translation: We’re only saying that to keep you from freaking out about our shopping addiction.

5. I’m FINE.


Translation: Run. Just run.

6. My landlord has issues with male guests.

Translation: I don’t want you invading my personal space. Please stop asking to visit.

7. You don’t have to pay.

Translation: That’s true, but how could you not even offer?!

8. Of course I like your friends.


Translation: I don’t. I'm just trying not to hurt your feelings.

9. Sure. Do whatever you like.


Translation: Don’t do that. Just don’t.

10. It’s not you, it’s me.

Translation: It’s you, and I don’t want to get into a long and messy discussion about breaking up. Let’s just get this over with.

11. No, I never liked him! Not even before I met you!


Translation: Had a massive crush on him, so huge that I had even named our babies.

Translation: Um, not really, they were hell-bent on me marrying someone else, but I convinced them otherwise.

13. I’m okay.


Translation: Rest assured, things are not okay.

14. Tell me the truth. Trust me, I won’t get angry.

Translation: We will promise anything to get the truth out of you. We’ll see about the not getting angry bit afterwards.

15. I weigh.../ I am only... (Insert weight/ age here)

Translation: NAH. A woman is entitled to her secrets.

16. Wow, I love this gift!

Translation: Hope you’ve left the bill in the bag so we can go and get it exchanged.

17. No, I’m not jealous.

Translation: I SAW you make eye contact with that girl at the bar! I want to rip your throat out.

18. I totally get that you want some space.


Translation: Please. How could you not want us around all the time? We’re awesome.

19. The only reason my ex still calls is because we broke up on a good note.

Translation: Ha ha ha.

20. I understand.

Translation: I don’t. How can you say that? I HATE you.
