Study Reveals What Men and Women Lie About on First Dates

If you've gone on a first dates recently, chances are your date told you at least one lie about.

A new study reveals the majority of men and women fib on the first date, but they differ on what they lie about.

Some incredulous KTLA anchors broke the study down.

Men are most likely to lie about how wealthy they are. According to the study, men typically bump up their incomes by about 20 percent. Men are also most likely to lie about their previous relationships and their occupations. They are most likely to tell dates they are entrepreneurs, pilots and investment bankers.

The survey finds women also lie about their jobs. They are most likely to say they are models, teachers or interior designers.

But women are even more likely to lie about their ages -- typically shaving four years off the actual number. Women also lie more often than men about their home towns -- and their names.

The survey finds 44 percent of liars come clean by the third date -- and 25 percent only confess when they're caught.
