The Top 10 Things We Lie About in Social Situations

I respect honesty. Even if it’s brutal.

I mean, anyone who’ll look me in the eye and tell me they’re bad at their job and pathetic in almost every way deserves some credit.  ‘Cause at least they’re being true to themselves.

But, a new survey found close to a third of us are so desperate to impress people, we’ll just flat out LIE about our accomplishments.

Here are the top ten things we lie about or embellish when we’re with other people:

  1. Your job or how much responsibility you have.
  2. Your travel stories.
  3. How much you exercise.
  4. How much money you make.
  5. Your dating or sex life.
  6. Cooking skills.
  7. Past careers/jobs.
  8. Movies you’ve seen.
  9. Baking skills.
  10. How great your relationship is. 

And, in case you’re wondering, here are a few more things that just barely missed the Top 10:

  • Books you’ve read
  • How many countries you’ve visited
  • Your sports skills
  • Your degrees/education
  • Celebrities you’ve met
