I'm sorry to be the one to tell you this, ladies. I know it will come as quite a shock to you so I hope you are sitting down when you read this.

According to a new survey, three out of four men admit that they've lied on a first date to impress the woman they're with. Here are the four most popular lies:

#1.) Two in three guys have lied about how much money they make.

#2.) More than half have lied about their career prospects, to make themselves sound better at their job than they really are.

#3.) Just over half of men have lied about hobbies and interests and told a woman what they thought she'd want to hear.

A lot of men pretend they don't watch as much sports as they really do and they also act like they love animals.

#4.) One in three guys have also lied about their relationship status. 2% have hidden the fact they were divorced, and 1% didn't mention they had kids.
