A true and healthy relationship requires trust and loyalty from both partners. If one of the partners lacks these good traits, then the relationship is definitely doomed to fail. When you are sharing your life with a certain person, it means you should never hide anything from them or hurt them. Also, lying can seriously damage a relationship, and most people can feel that their partner is not honest even before they have particular proof of that.
In order to be more sure whether your partner is lying to you and if your inner feeling is correct, these are the 8 signs you need to pay attention to.
1.Drastic change in behavior
If your partner suddenly starts to behave differently and changes and cancels plans without a good reason, you should be more careful. Also, if they show too much affection, even more than they did in the past, they might be hiding something. If they also get flustered when you ask them something, they might be lying to you as well. In that case you should confront them openly to put an end to their lies.
2.They act differently on social media and in real life
If the things they post on social media are not in accordance with the things they tell you, they are definitely lying. If they tell you they are going to one place but on social media posts they are somewhere completely different, they are either hiding something or they don’t care enough to tell you about their change of plans.
3.They say that they never lie
The biggest lie a person can tell you is that they never lie. Sweet lies are not better than the bitter truth. Everyone lies, however there is a difference between white lies and others. If your partner claims they never lie, they probably do and a lot more than they should.
4.They deny something they have done
When speaking to someone pay attention to their syntax and speaking pace. They can tell a lot more than words. If your partner says, for example ‘I didn’t do it” instead of “I did not do it” they might be lying. When lying, people feel scared and they tend to shorten their words and also avoid eye contact. Honest people will do the exact opposite of this because they are confident.
One of the biggest and most reliable signs of lying, is avoiding eye contact. Honest people are not afraid of confrontation and they will never avoid eye contact. If your partner tends to look away, they are very likely to be lying.
6.Leaning away from you
Body language is also another indicator of lying. If your partner leans away from you while they are speaking, they are probably lying so pay attention.
7.They accuse you of lying
One of the things liars do often is accusing their partner of the things they did wrong. So, if your partner accuses you of lying when you did not do anything wrong, they are the ones to blame.
8.Someone else told you that your partner is lying
If someone in your life you can rely on tells you that your partner is lying, you should trust them. This bitter truth is difficult to accept but it will save you from a worse heartbreak once your world gets destroyed. The situation is even more alarming if more than one person tells you this. You should always take these claims with a pinch of salt, however never ignore them and pay attention.
