Most Common Lies People Tell

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

The Top Ten Most Common Lies People Tell

1 I’m Fine

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. - cosmo

This is definitely number 1. It is really depressing when you're feeling down and grumpy and everyone around you can see that from your face yet they come and ask you, "Are you okay? " and you just automatically say, "I'm fine." because (1) your problem is way too complicated for them to understand and (2) you're way too exhausted from pretending you're just fine to explain your problem to them.

2 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. - keycha1n

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

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.

3 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. - madman38

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

5 Wow! You Look Great In That Dress.

Even though your inner heart says "hell no! You look like a clown" - madman38

Really? I'm not letting my friend go out looking ugly, go ahead, tell her! Or him, depends on how they roll. - keycha1n

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

6 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 - madman38

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. - Britgirl

7 Sorry!! I Forgot

I assure you though, many times I really do forget! Other times... Lets not talk about those. - keycha1n

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. - kennywilliams21

Nah, I just didn't want to do it

8 I Will Be There In 5 Minutes

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

10 I Am Fine

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

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.

14 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 - madman38

15 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. - Britgirl

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) - JaysTop10List

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 - trains45

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" - madman38

19 I Don't Know

A thing u say when your to lazy to explain it

20 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.

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

26 I Didn't Break the Window

I remember doing this lie as a kid once when I broke a window with a rock and another kid was beside me when I broke it, I remember he was in big trouble for breaking the window, when it was me that did it, they eventually found out it was me - trains45

Once I lied about this I broke the window in my sisters bedroom with a baseball and lied and said she did it, she got in big trouble until she said I lied then I got in big huge trouble for lying

I said this once when I did break a window and lied and said my sister did it she got in big trouble when it was me that did it

I am straight though, unless it is a lie told by certain people. but yeah, I'm legitimately straight.

Most of us are straight so this is not Rrly a lie.

I'm bi so eh...

31 I'm Not Drunk

My relatives (especially the men) and dad after going to a family gathering and having like 2 beers and 5 glasses of wine (They're Asian)

34 I Didn't Kill Them!
35 Macs Can't Get Viruses

Really? come on!

36 I'm Happy to Be Single

When I look at the mess my friends lives are in - yes - I am HAPPY to be single.
Some have even told me I am LUCKY to have not married.
Better to be alone than be with someone and miserable.

Anyone who thinks I’m lying when I say this clearly doesn’t know me very well. The last “relationship” I was in thankfully only lasted maybe a week, which is also one of the many reasons I put it in quotes, but I felt like I was stuck in it until I finally had the courage to break up with him because I was afraid to hurt his feelings, I was miserable for pretty much the whole run of it, and I blindly agreed to date someone who’s pretty much ditched me for other people many times before because I was too stupid to realize that no matter how many times I continued to come back to him, it was never gonna change. I am so happy to not only be single, but to say I’m not that person to forgive people too easily anymore. - 3DG20

37 No Homo

Don't lie, you know that when someone says no homo, a lot of the time, it's homo intended my dear friend.

39 You're My Favorite

Well, this wouldn't be a lie if my mom told it to my sister. - Mii24

40 You're Cute
41 Wikipedia Isn't Reliable

Sometimes the truth, people vandalize some pages to make it look misleading - Leafeon

This isn't a lie...

This isn’t a lie. Anyone can edit Wikipedia pages, so if you’re going to rely on them, at least check with other sources. - 3DG20

42 I Don't Like Him/Her

Sometimes I say it as a joke and make fun of people I clearly do like, but most of the time, I mean it. - 3DG20

43 I Didn't "Purposely" Hurt Them
44 I've Done It Before
45 I'm Big Boned

46 I Have a Girlfriend/Boyfriend at Another School

Come on, don't tell me you didn't do this as a five year old when all of your other friends were getting married. I mean, I still tell this lie to my grandparents when they ask why my fiancee hasn't made it to holidays.

47 Don't worry about me!
48 We'll Stop If It Hurts

Doctors in particular. - PianoQueen

Yeah that is one that they always say

49 Yum! This Tastes Good

Sometimes my dad makes food that I didn't like but I say it's good just to be nice

Admittedly, I have lied a few times about food I didn’t like saying it was okay, but no one I’ve said it to believed it. - 3DG20

50 God Exists

Well, it isn't a lie because you can't prove or disprove God's existence. Stop debating since you'll never find good evidence for either. Just believe what you want to believe. - ethanmeinster

You can't prove God isn't real. You'll know when you die. - kennywilliams21

I hate this bloody mess ( I am from London) GOD DOES EXIST!

This is not really a lie because a lie is something people say which they know is not true. People who say this actually believe it is true so even if God did not exist ( I don’t believe that God exists) this would not be a lie simply a case of being mistaken. I suppose if I said God exists it would be a lie though because I don’t believe it.
