When it comes to lying, some people can be awarded a B.sc., M.sc. and Ph.D combined. They are so good that no one will ever suspect them. And of course, many have the perception that girls love being told lies. Hence, guys have perfected the art of telling lies including the ridiculous ones. If you are unsure if your partner is a liar or not, here are signs that will definitely give them away. Watch out:
They have a history of exaggerated truth
While detecting a lie in action is essential, recognising a pattern or trend of lies is also important. If you notice your partner has been all too willing to tell small lies here and there, it’s likely they are comfortable lieing about the important issues.
They stop talking about themselves
If your partner is telling a lie, he or she will start talking about others. They automatically remove themselves from the story notwithstanding if whoever they are talking about is relevant to the story or not. If this is the case, you should be suspicious.
They use sex as a distraction
If you’re in the middle of a serious conversation in which you’re about to blow the whistle on a mischievous plan of theirs, your partner may be afraid their cover will be blown. In this case, they may attempt to change the subject and go straight to the most effective distraction: sex. The women are experts here. Guys beware.
They avoid the facts and do not give straightforward answers
When you’re seeking the truth, you want your partner to divulge important information that adds up. If you ask your partner where he or she was last night, you should expect an honest, straightforward answer. If he or she responds with “nowhere special,” your partner is lying.
They blame you for everything
Someone who’s constantly shifting blame clearly has something they are not telling you. Taking responsibility for wrongdoings is a sign of maturity, love, and loyalty, so someone who isn’t able to do that isn’t a trustworthy partner.
They reference God
When your partner uses phrases like, “I swear on my mother’s grave” or “let God punish me if I went out with her”, it’s possible they could be trying to hide something. Be careful!
Their attitude changes abruptly
When you spend enough time with someone, you get to know their behaviors to a very large extent. This means it’s easy to recognise times when they stray from their normal perks and attitude. As such, if his manner shifts abruptly, gliding from calm to agitated, chances are he’s not telling the truth.
