Why the hell would you need to tell people you aren’t going to lie? This phrase drives me crazy! Urban Dictionary defines it as this:
“One of the gayest expressions commonly used today. Often used before stating something obvious or something that no one would bother to lie about. This expression is over used and almost always makes the user look like a douche.”
-I’m not gonna lie, that movie was terrible.
A lot of my friends say this on a regular basis. People I work with say it. Strangers say it. I started reading a new blog the other day and had to stop because 4 posts in a row contained this phrase. I have even caught myself saying it once or twice because it is so prevalent in my environment, and I immediately slapped myself.
Who started this?!
