Page 1 of 11

If you are not sure whether you can completely trust your partner read our list of ways 10 ways to tell if someone is lying about cheating to help you with your dilemma.

Cheating is probably the worst nightmare any boyfriend/girlfriend can experience in a relationship. However, not all individuals perceive it as that bad of a deed, which is probably the reason why some can do it so easily with every partner. How many times have you been betrayed? Did you asked yourself “how could I possibly not see that coming?”

Is it possible that some people are such great liars or are we simply too naive to comprehend the mind of a cheater? The worst part may not even be the cheating itself, but the permanent consequences it leaves. A person who has been cheated by his/her partner is likely to be suspicious of any future partner as well, even though they have no reasonable explanation for their suspicion of the new person. They simply find it impossible to relax and trust a person after they have experienced such a horrible betrayal.

This often leads to a series of failed relationships because people with trust issues will likely ruin the relationship before they will allow themselves to be betrayed again. The consequences are probably, even more grave for those who caught their partners in the act of cheating in a hotel room.

What bothers couples everywhere is how to tell if their partner is telling the truth? And how to recognize any suspicious behavior?  Some people are alway on alert, they observe how their partner behaves and they are able to detect when something is wrong. Others take forever to realize that their significant other is not faithful, and usually, this is because the person has not experienced anything like it before, so they have no reason to be suspicious of their partner. Of course, how quickly you realize that you have been cheated on depends on the length of your relationship, as well as its seriousness. Couples who live together tend to know each other habits very well, and they can easily spot when something seems a little off. Also, your partner cannot come home late from a night out without you noticing it.

So, why do people cheat? The reasons are various. Some find it dull to be with one person all the time, and others simply tend to make mistakes when are they drunk or bored. Some may cheat out of anger or despair, but what we can all agree on is the fact that cheating is a sign that something in the relationship is very wrong. A person who is satisfied with their relationship is less likely to cheat, though there are no strict rules about that. The more important question is how to tell if someone is lying? Lying is complex and it requires great effort to maintain a lie once we have spoken it. That being said, a lying person has a lot of planning and thinking to do if they want to lie. If not planned carefully, a lie is very see-through so it should not be very difficult to spot the lie when you know where to look. We often look for signs of deception on wrong places which lead to confusion.

We sought help from psychology and Time to determine some guidelines for recognizing when a person is lying about cheating, and we have discovered that lying is hard work, actually.  It requires constant effort to suppress the truth and maintain the lie spoken, so one must constantly think about their lie, and pay attention not to reveal anything suspicious. Very often, a liar will not be nervous, but strangely calm instead, talking slowly and appearing a little distant.

The author of The Folly of Fools indicates that men use fewer hand gestures when lying, while both men and women speak with longer pauses when doing the same thing.

In order to determine 10 ways to tell if a person is lying about cheating, we took a look at Reddit discussions about this issue in order to read about experiences of those who were cheated by their partners, as well as suggestions of others. We searched through the Independent to find more clues and we present to you a list of suggestions how to tell if someone is lying about cheating.
