Most Common Lies People Tell

what are the most common lies people say?? for me these are the most frequent lies!!

The Top Ten

I’m Fine

When you vote on this site, it asks you to explain why. My reason? Well, a few years ago, a friend of mine was acting a little different. She had stopped coming to hang out with us, she had changed her style. Too many things to name. She started to only ever wear hoodies and long-sleeved t-shirts. That's when I became really suspicious. Everyday, I would ask her was she okay. It was always the same answer, 'I'm Fine.' One day, I was done with her telling me she's fine so I went to her house to check her wrists, hips and legs to see if she was cutting. I got to her house and her door was unlocked. I walked up to her room and saw a note on her bed. I heard water in the bathroom and found her in the bathtub with bloody-water and slit wrists. She got to the hospital on time. Luckily. She asked me how did I know and I just told her 'I'm not okay.' and that I have been telling the same lie as her for years. She ended up killing herself a few months later. But the one thing that keeps me ...more

I know it's sad but sometimes you just don't want other people to know how much pain you're really in

I have a friend, but lately he hasn't been coming to school much, I'd say he comes for about a week once every 4 weeks, and when the weekend comes around, he just doesn't come back for a while. He says that he's fine, but I don't know what I should do, since he clearly isn't fine. There has even been rumour that he has been faking depression to get out of school. I really don't know what I should do, I don't know whether I should call him, talk to some of his friends, wait until he comes back an have a proper talk or just let it go. And lately when I have been seeing him, I've been noticing how differently he has been acting, and I used to feel that we had a strong connection, but these days just being around him feels awkward. I have no idea what I should do, if I should do something, or even if it's worth keeping him in my life...

I'm fine, but I'm not really fine, if someone can't look you in the eye tell you their fine, they are not fine (Just saying) - abbythecheerleader

Yeah like when someone asks "How are you? " and you say "i'm fine" when you fractured a skull or something or you have a really bad fever. This lie is really common.

I Have Read & Agreed to the Above Terms and Conditions

There was this one experiment where someone hid a five thousand dollar prize in the terms and conditions and no one claimed it for months. Though I admit, when I was a kid, I used to read these. Then I gave up. They ought to just say:

1. ) don't sue us if you're unhappy.
2. ) this is copyrighted.

The most common lie, without the shadow of a doubt.

This lie is the most truthful lie ever, people just literally skip that part and click okay and move on with their day. Not even thinking about it as well. - abbythecheerleader

My mom forces me to read these, even if they're over 10 pages long. I hate reading these because not only do I not understand 90% of what it says, but it takes forever just to read the whole thing.

Given on page 1 of 37 of the terms and conditions it says, "I Have Read & Agreed to the Above Terms and Conditions," I honestly don't know what they think would happen.

I Don’t Lie

My grandpa said this then he lied, he told my mom that we didn't eat junk food the whole weekend when he bought me a bag of potato chips on saturday and a chocolate bar on the sunday

My grandma said this, then lied to me that my parents knew they were in town, and my parents didn't know they were

The most popular lies in our everyday lives. If you say this, then you are being dishonest to yourself first. All of us have lied at least once in our lives, mostly for good. Sometimes even over taken by our evil side. Yes all of us have lied, admit it.

If I'm being honest, I've only ever told one lie in my life and this is the one...

I Am Sick

Come on you've definitely wanted to miss school or work at least once but not have the right excuse

I tried that did not work

So true

I suck

Wow! You Look Great In That Dress.

Even though your inner heart says "hell no! You look like a clown"

Really? I'm not letting my friend go out looking ugly, go ahead, tell her! Or him, depends on how they roll.

Great? Oh my, I think I need to clean my ears. I must've misheard the phrase "Worse than a clown" as "great"!

Don’t Worry! It Will Be Okay!

You HAVE to make sure that people feel safe sometimes and that's ok

You tell this even though you know things are gonna get worse

I do say this often but I have every faith in my heart that things will be okay. I don't just say if for something to say.

Sorry!! I Forgot

I assure you though, many times I really do forget! Other times... Lets not talk about those.

If I didn't forget I usually tell them other honest reason and not lie that I have forgotten

I really do forget a lot when I say this. -Not a lie I promise.

Nah, I just didn't want to do it

I Will Be There In 5 Minutes

Maybe add another 25 onto that though "depends on traffic ya know" Hehe...

Black stereotype, it's true for my family we get there like 30min-1hr late.

One of the most common lie to tell your parents and friends

Wait, do you mean one hour?

I Don't Care

Its true my mom says I have a instinct to lie so I just go along with it

YOU CARE! You even gave a damn and replied!

I DO care. I miss you and you chose to leave

I do Care

I Am Fine

I'm fine, I just got fired from my job you know...

I do this a lot

I'm depressed but you know I am fine

Nobody ever actually means they are fine when they say it, the y just say it so that the person asking leaves them alone

The Contenders


Admit it, who actually laughs every time they send LOL?

For real who even laughs?

There are some times where I put LOL and actually laugh, but for most of the time I don’t LOL (see what I did there? )

Real life
zzzz, I’m tired and bored.

I Love You

Celebrity: I love all of my fans.

Oh, you mean the people you have no idea exist?

I would struggle to believe it at first.

When somebody says: "I Love You", don't believe it is legitimate.

I don't believe it

It's Not Mine

It's mine, but I have a reason why it's not mine right now.

~anyone under the age of 15!

No Problem

HEHE no problem AT ALL it's only MY hard work for YOUR LUXURIES

You know what I am talking about. NO PROBLEM

I Care About You

we all have at least one friend who we just don't get along with. and you need to lie in front of everyone to not seem (Ya know)

I can't speak for others when they say this to me; I can only hope that they mean it because I certainly mean it when I say it.

Out of all the people who have said this to me, I know only 2 were telling the truth

To me, it isn't a lie. I care about others ( expect bullies and other bad people)

I Am Part Native American

Lol. I've heard that one a lot!

I Didn't Do It

Ya know when you break something and then put it on your sibling (YUP)

I once said this lie, when I broke my moms phone, I remember blaming it on a sibling they said I lied I got in big trouble

I said this before when I broke my dads watch, he knew I was lying

I have said this lie before when I got in trouble for something

Do You Understand? Yes Sir

This will be number one lie if you are a student. Every time your teacher says "do you understand? " you have a readymade answer "Yes sir"

I Don't Know

A thing u say when your to lazy to explain it

I Never Said That

I either forgot about it and realized it later, and don't want to admit it for some stupid reason like pride, or you have no evidence, so I'm innocent.

I never said that I was going to go to bed soon.

HeeHee Okay maybe I did... At school and at home!

Guess Who Doesn't Care About the Haters? Me.

This is an oxymoronic lie...

You cared enough to make the comment...

You're Not Fat, You're Thick

, this happens to me all the time! everyone comes up to me and says "you're thick you fat chick! "

I Have Read The Terms And Conditions

That was already on the list.

You're Taller
I Don't Have a Crush

This is true for me now, I don't have one anymore, I last had crush feeling on someone was around feb 2018

No I swear, this isn't a lie, stop asking for who my dang crush is!

I hate those people who ask that

This can be true I don't have one now, I used to a year ago in june
