How To Tell If Your Partner Is Lying

If your partner is cheating there will always be signs of dishonesty in your relationship and today I’ll show you how to tell if your partner is lying to you.

Hey there, Steve here and welcome to this week’s private eye post. It’s never a good thing to know you’re being lied to. But the truth is that if your spouse is cheating on you, they will have to lie to you at some point if they want to cover up their cheating activities.

Although there are many signs of lying you can look for, the best advice I can give you is to pay real attention to how your partner talks when you know they aren’t lying. Their body language. How they pace their words. The amount of eye contact they give you. Everything from the signs of lying below.

Then, you’ll easily be able to spot when something is different from their baseline behaviour.

#1 What They Say

Perhaps one of the easiest ways to start detecting deceit is to really listen to what they are saying to you. The words and expressions they use. How they describe things to you. The things they talk about.

You don’t necessarily need to spot the lie immediately, although sometimes it’s more than obvious.

Take a look at both of the posts below — the rehearsed story in the second post can be used by both men and women. (Plus it can be simple to hear.)


#2 Comfort Levels

Unless someone is a highly-accomplished liar, lying will feel extremely uncomfortable for them. The level of comfort someone is feeling while they’re talking can usually be clearly seen by how they act. In other words: their body language.

Our natural reactions come from our “lizard brain” and are triggered by a freeze, flight, or fight response. Nowadays, we don’t have to confront life-threatening situations like coming upon a sabre-tooth tiger. But we still have the same internal response to a threat.

This post explores the 5 main ways you can see this in your partner.

When someone lies they are manufacturing information and have to construct and assemble the lie and try to appear “normal” at the same time. This is highly taxing on the brain compared to when telling the truth (which is easy because you’re just stating things from memory.)

As a result, there are lots of differences between the body language of a truthteller and a liar. This post shows you some of the key things you can look for.


#3 Logistical Challenges

When a partner cheats, they have to make time for their cheating activities. No one can magically alter time, so there are always changes in behaviour patterns and routines.

These are simple to see with a little bit of work.
