"When it comes to love and relationships people expect each other to be honest, however we all value our sense of freedom and privacy. So whilst romantic couples want to please each other, at other times there may be competing goals which can make telling the truth more difficult.
Close relationships involve a lot of truth telling as well as some dishonesty. Husbands, wives, boyfriends and girlfriends, betray those they love. Deception comes in handy when people want to limit their partners choices, avoid conflict or punishment.
To all the liars out there, remember, to be a good liar you have to have a really good memory, is it worth all the stress?!!" - Susan
4 Tell-Tale Signs Your Partner Is Lying To You
1. Pinocchio’s your man.
When a person lies, specific tissues in the nose usually engorge, says Dr. Alan Hirsch of The Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago. This nasal engorgement, which Hirsch calls the “Pinocchio Sign,” causes cells to release histamine, which in turn causes the nose to itch.
2. The big cover up.
Look for negation cues such as covering or blocking the mouth or covering or rubbing the eyes, nose or ears, and aversion clues such as turning the head or body away when making a crucial statement.
3. God’s on his or her side.
Religious phrases such as “I swear on my mother’s grave,” “God, no” or “As God is my witness.”
4. Deny, deny, deny.
Denial phrases such as “trust me,” “honestly,” “and “to be perfectly honest” are evasive. Evasion is about trying to change a perception about actions. Denial phrases repeated over and over are typical clues to lying.
