5 Ways to tell your man is lying ….
Remembering the truth about what happened Saturday and the story he wants you to believe is a mental burden.
Many liars make a verbal mistakes, like start-stop sentences and use past and present tenses in the same story or repeat questions rather than answering them.
Studies have shown that liars tend to drop pronouns from their speech, as a way to verbally distance themselves from the lie.
The Liars Expression
Nearly 50 years ago, a researcher discovered that all humans share seven micro-expressions.
Emotions are hard-wired to flash across our faces and if you're surprised, you make the same fleeting expression. These microexpressions are impossible to fake.
Look out for contempt. That feeling of moral superiority and disrespect. The most dangerous microexpression for a relationship: Contempt shows up as a half-smile smirk, with only one side of the mouth raised. It signals, "I've justified my lie. I'm getting away with it. You're a fool." Researchers can see contempt on chronic cheaters who think they're too smart to get caught.
He Sounds Funny
Liars are sometimes called "fast talkers,".
Yet liars will alter their speech rates within a single sentence.
Typically a liar might begin to speak slowly, because he's trying to figure out his lie—but once it comes into his head, he tries to spit it out as fast as possible.
Research has shown that a person's vocal tone will waiver from baseline in up to 95 percent of all deceptive statements. If your partner's baritone is on the rise, you may be facing a fib.
Body Language - Trying to Run and Hide
People align their belly buttons with the objects of their interest. If he started the conversation with his navel pointed straight at you, and now his body is twisted toward the door, he is aching to leave—that could indicate a hot spot for deception.
When a liar is faced with questions he doesn't want to answer, he may unwittingly cover his eyes, mouth or entire face with his hand, arm or a pair of sunglasses in a subconscious attempt to disappear.
He Makes You Feel Off-Balance
Practiced liars are uniquely able to distort reality and make us feel like the floor is shifting underneath us and spout false information with such conviction that it makes you start to question your own recollections.
This particular type of manipulation is called "gaslighting." Standard gaslighter lines include, "I never said that" or "stop making things up,"
If you get to the end of a conversation and wonder, "Hey, what just happened?" Give yourself permission to follow those whiffs of suspicion and investigate it further.
