How To Know When Someone Is Lying To You?

How To Know When Someone Is Lying To You?

It would be great if everyone in the world always told the truth. But, many people are lying every single day. When you feel manipulated, cheated, and lied to, it’s important to recognize some signs of that.

I always say the truth is best even when we find it unpleasant. Any rat in a sewer can lie. It’s how rats are. It’s what makes them rats. But a human doesn’t run and hide in dark places, because he’s something more. Lying is the most personal act of cowardice there is. – Nancy Farmer

You Deserve The Truth

Before you start analyzing if someone is lying, you have to remind yourself that you deserve the truth.

You deserve to know the facts, and you shouldn’t feel guilty about wanting to know the truth.

Luckily, some things can prove that someone is lying to you.

Of course, there are always exceptions, but it’s good to be careful and attentive if you don’t trust someone.

Lies can destroy you, and you should protect yourself from people who are lying.

You should find a way to distance yourself from people who aren’t telling the truth. Here are some signs that someone is lying to you.

1. Weird Behavior

When you notice weird behavior and weird body language, it’s possible that someone is lying to you.

When it looks like someone is trying too much, or when their words don’t match with their gestures – they’re probably lying to you.

When they’re nervous and distracted while talking to you, they’re probably making up stories in their head.

Their weird attitude and anxiety are the best proof that they’re actually lying.

These things aren’t hard to notice. Just focus on them while they’re talking.

Analyze their words and movements. You will notice if they’re telling the truth or not.

2. Too Many Details Or Too Little Details


When someone wants you to believe in something, they’re trying to present it as the truth.

They’re giving you a lot of information because they want to convince you that they’re speaking the truth.

They think that a lot of details will help them to sell their story. But, too many details are often a sign of a life.

On the other hand, when a person can’t answer your questions about something, it could mean they’re lying.

They have a detailed story in their head, and everything that’s not connected to their story will confuse them and they will not know how to answer.

So, if you want to know if someone is lying, pay attention to their stories and ask them some questions.

Ask them to repeat what they’ve already told you and ask them something they haven’t spoken about.

If you notice that they feel nervous and confused because of your questions, it means they’re lying.

They feel scared and they can’t think of something else to say. They keep making mistakes because they can’t memorize their lies.

Once again, exceptions are possible because some people are great liars. They know how to deceive you and your questions and attention to detail won’t help.

3. Sneakiness

People who lie to you will also be sneaky and secretive. They will hide some things from you, and they will always tell you a little bit of information.

When you notice that someone is hiding something, it’s probably because they’re lying to you.

You don’t have to do anything, just keep an eye on them for a while. Pay attention to them, and you will notice that they’re being sneaky.

4. History Of Lying

People can change, but it’s hard to change. If you already know that someone is prone to lying, it’s highly possible that they’re lying again.

If they’re doing something suspicious you have every right to think they’re lying again.

5. Gut Feeling

These are the main signs that someone is lying to you. Sometimes you’re dealing with a good liar, and it’s hard to find a mistake.

But, when you can feel they’re lying, when you simply know it because your gut feeling is telling you that, you’re probably right.

People can sense someone’s love, hate, lies, and truth. When your instincts are telling you that someone is a liar, trust them.

How To Deal With Liars?

Many people can easily find out when someone is lying, but it’s harder to decide what to do next.

It all depends on your relationship and the type of lie. Some small, irrelevant lies happening for the first time aren’t so important.

You should talk about those lies and you should express your disappointment, but it’s okay to forgive and move on.

But, if someone is lying to you all the time, and they’re lying about important things, you have to protect yourself.

You have to stand up for yourself because you deserve the truth. If you allow them to lie all the time, you will ruin yourself.

You have to love yourself enough to walk away from liars. They don’t deserve you and you have to escape from their manipulations.

When you know that someone is lying to you, don’t be scared to tell them that you know everything.

You have to defend yourself and you have to speak up.

In some cases, it’s okay to simply vanish from their life without explanation. After all, liars don’t deserve better.

When it comes to overcoming pain, you have to give yourself some time. Lies are truly hurtful, but you can’t control other people.

Some people are good, and some people aren’t. You will heal one day, and you will find people who are always honest with you.

People who lie all the time are lying to themselves too. Living that kind of life is pointless.

Therefore, focus on yourself and your goodness. Liars shouldn’t affect your life at all.
