It's not a big shock to find out that people lie on social media. But to find out that women do it may be a little surprising.

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.

Why do they do it? To spice up their lives. Yep, the main reason given is they want to make their lives seem less boring. Welcome to the real world sistas!

Here are the top five lies given on the survey:

  1. Saying you're doing something when you're actually at home alone.
  2. How much alcohol you drank.
  3. What you did or what you're going to do on vacation.
  4. Your job.
  5. Your relationship status.

How you like that last one? "Engaged"...Girl, you know you ain't got a man!!

Now, to be fair, this was a survey of only women. No telling how many more lies us men tell.
