“Your partner is lying to you!” says TV show about liars

Deception news now in the Daily Star. Admittedly, that’s a phrase that could preface most of their articles, but this particular instance concerns the list of things your partner is lying to you about:

From cheating to orgasms – the biggest lies we tell our partners revealed

COUPLES reveal the worst bare-faced lies they’ve told their lover.

We’ve all told little white lies at times, but some people have been brave enough to share the sordid tall stories they’ve gotten away with.

According to a new survey, a whopping 75% of Brits admitted lying to their partners and one in 10 reckon they do it regularly – with men expected to tell the most porkies.

Could it be true that we’re seeing a monumental breakdown of trust in marriages across the country? Possibly not, given the motivations of the PR team behind this story:

The poll of 2,000 adults by TV show Imposters also found that a quarter of the population don’t completely trust their current partner and 5% don’t trust them at all.

If you’re unfamilar with Imposters as a TV show, it’s a show about con artists. Which puts the ‘people lie!’ angle of this press release into somewhat helpful context.
