Lying is the most common symptom that your relationship is in jeopardy because it loses trust. So how do you know if you're being lied to?

Lies in relationships do not always apply to cheating and third parties. This can be, for example, gambling, addictions, financial fraud and even compulsive shopping. Here's what to look out for if you suspect your partner is lying:

What the partner says does not match his actions.

For example, he assures you that he has no feelings for his ex. Nevertheless, he constantly finds reasons to communicate with her.

6 signs your partner is lying to you

You have the feeling that you do not have a complete picture of what is happening.

At the same time, when you ask your partner direct questions, his answers do not add any clarity and meaning, it seems that he does not say much. Pay attention to body language: Nervous gestures, avoidance of eye-to-eye contact, and other characteristic patterns of behavior can indicate that a person is lying.

Your intuition is trying to get through to you.

Listen to her, she is often wiser than reason. If you feel tension, awkwardness, embarrassment, anxiety in the presence of a partner, instinctively feel that something is wrong, then it means it is.

You have noticed that your partner suddenly has an increased need for personal space.

He suddenly put a password on his phone, started locking his desk drawer, leaving the room to answer the phone, making sure you didn't see the screen of his smartphone or laptop. This may well indicate that he is hiding something.

The partner began to often apologize, make excuses, try to present some rational explanations for his behavior.

The longer and more detailed they are, the more likely it is all a lie.

Your passwords to shared bank accounts have mysteriously changed.

In this case, the partner first assures you that he has not changed anything, and then declares that "everything is under control." This may be a sign of “financial infidelity” - there is a high risk that without your knowledge and consent, he turns some dark deals, spends your common money, takes loans, gets into debt or receives secret income that he does not want to talk about.
