According to a new survey of 1,000 adults conducted by Heineken, almost one in four Americans have actually faked a relationship to avoid having to deal with pressure from loved ones about finding a partner. And the beer brand’s research also shows who’s most likely to be making up a romance - Millennial's. It turns out only 9% of Baby Boomers and 29% of Gen Xers have considered lying about an S.O., but 40% of Millennial's admit to doing the same.
And the survey finds that men are more than twice as likely (33% to 16%) as women to lie about being in a relationship. So keep that in mind when your cousin starts bragging about his new girlfriend at the family holiday dinner.
