Have you ever been scanning your facebook feed and think “Wow. I’m really boring, these people are out there living life! Their lives are so much more exciting than mine!” You’re not alone. And you’re not boring. Here’s why…
According to a new survey of 2,000 women, at LEAST one-third of them lie, exaggerate, or distort the truth at least once a month on Facebook.
(Don’t get too defensive, men probably lie too, but they weren’t included in this survey)
The main reason women give for lying is to make their lives seem less boring. The number two reason is jealousy, and number three is wanting to impress people. The most common lies are . . .
#1.) Saying you’re doing something when you’re really home alone.
#2.) How much alcohol you drank. (This confuses me — do you claim to drink MORE to make yourself look like quite the partier? Or LESS to hide a serious drinking problem?)
#3.) What you did or you’re doing on vacation.
#4.) Your job. (I can’t lie about this. I don’t have one.)
#5.) Your relationship status.
