You have to protect yourself from lies and deceit. There are some subtle signs that you can look out for in order for you to tell when a person is lying to you.

1. They can’t respond to a “yes or no” question right away.

There must always be some kind of explanation. There is always some sort of gray area that she wants to make clear to you. You only asked her a simple “yes or no” question about your suspicions but she really feels like she has to defend herself.

2. They repeat whatever they say for emphasis.

You know what they say about how when you repeat a lie often enough, people will start to believe it to be true. That’s the kind of tactic she’s employing. She always tries to repeat her lies as much as possible only to convince you of their validity. She wants to emphasize that she’s trying to tell you the truth even though it’s only a mind conditioning technique that liars use all the time.

3. Your girl avoids having alone time with you.

She gets uncomfortable whenever she’s alone with you because she doesn’t want you to catch her in her lies. She knows she gets very vulnerable when there is no one else present to ease the tension between the two of you

4. Your girl avoids making eye contact with you.

The eyes are the windows to the soul and they can often reveal the truth even when the mouth is busy spewing out lies. She doesn’t want you to see the truth within her soul and she avoids eye contact with you during her lying sprees.

5. She stutters and pauses whenever she talks to you.

She’s trying to think of a story on the spot but her brain just can’t catch up to the speed of her mouth. While typically, she’s very eloquent and expressive. When she’s telling a lie, it would be like talking to a toddler who is just learning to speak for the first time.

6. She becomes more protective of her communication devices.

At all costs, she doesn’t want to give you any access to her cellphones, her laptops, or any other communication devices that may incriminate her.
