Little white lies: we all tell them. Sometimes they make life easier and the world a prettier place, other times they blow up in our face. When you’re in a relationship, honesty is important, but sometimes it is literally the worst policy. Like, one time, I told my cat that I had tuna flavored Whiskas Temptations for him, but they were actually Seafood Medley. It was a very quiet and lonely 3 weeks until he got over it. But enough about the cats, we’re talking about those lies you tell the second most important individual in your life: the boyfriend.
Some of these lies are selfless, some of them are selfish, but I’m betting that you’ve been guilty of at least a few of them!
1. I’m almost ready
By now, you’ve got to know this one is a lie. It’s not an intentional one, but “five minutes” means 15.

2. I’m tired
Translation: I’m bloated and gassy and don’t really feeling like hanging out and farting on you all night.

3. It was on sale
Often, this is technically not a lie, it’s just that we probably have different ideas of what a sale is. You might think that if it’s 50% off and under 40 dollars, it’s on sale. We consider “buy one Michael Kors tote at regular price and receive a free wristlet,” or “buy over $100 worth of Sephora products and get a $5 gift card” a bargain.
