I have to admit, sometimes I stretch the truth a little when my wife calls asking where I'm at. I say that I'm on my way, and I haven't even left my desk yet.

I believe we are all guilty of telling something that is far from the truth once in a while. But how often is normal? And do we feel guilty? And who is worse, men or women?

Well let me break it all down based on a study. And we will even look at the most common lies from both men and women.

When it comes to lying, men are far more likely than women to tell a fib. And men may not even feel guilty about it!

The average man tells three lies a day, which amounts to 1,092 lies a year. While more honest, the average woman tells her share of fibs, too, uttering lies 728 times a year or about twice a day.

Still, women insist they are better liars than men. Women are more likely than men to feel guilty after telling a lie.

The top 10 lies men tell:

1) I didn't have that much to drink.
2) Nothing's wrong! I'm fine.
3) I had no signal.
4) It wasn't that expensive.
5) I'm on my way. (My favorite)
6) I'm stuck in traffic.(2nd favorite, sometimes used along with #5)
7) No, your butt doesn't look big in that.
8) Sorry, I missed your call.
9) You've lost weight.
10)  It's just what I've always wanted.

The top 10 lies women tell:

1) Nothing's wrong! I'm fine.
2) I don't know where it is. I haven't touched it.
3) It wasn't that expensive.
4) I didn't have that much to drink.
5) I've got a headache.
6) It was on sale.
7) I'm on my way.
8) Oh, I've had this for ages.
9) No, I didn't throw it away.
10) It's just what I've always wanted.
