  • I can always tell, my husband is a good liar but i can see through him. they say sometimes when they turn thier head a certain way and certain hand gestures. I wish i could remember for you.

  • my husband is a pretty good liar but i can tell when he's doing it because he tells the truth about little things but one thing just won't add up.

    if a person raises their eyes when you ask them a question, there's a good chance, they're being dishonest and are 'searching their brain' for an answer. that's just some tidbit i retained from psych class, lol.

  • By knowing your husband and deciphering when he's lying or telling you the truth.

  • I can't. Tell I find out he was lying. I do not go around looking for things like that. But if I find out I get pissed. I usually find out he lied eventually.  But I do not stress if he is lying to me or not.

  • His voice goes up an octave...if him lying didnt piss me off so much it would be funny

  • I can always tell. He stops talking when I confront him about something he lied about. He looks down and doesnt argue. He is like a kid.

  • my ex had some tells

    oddest one i learned was...
    he would yawn in middle of sentence (and not a real long one, a short one, not a true yawn)

    and the regular signs....
    blame me, change subject, walk out of room for something (must need to collect thoughts) then come back to talk some more
    give too many details, when retells story it is different, gets mad about nothing, gets defensive when no need

    good luck, being with someone who lies to your face...SUCKS!

  • Usually its when they provide too much detail, rather than being vague. Also read his body language- fiddling with hands- extended eye contact (or none at all), mixing facts, high sensitivity to you second guessing him- are all possible signs. Its hard to tell though unless they've lied enough to create patterns.
