If you ask your female friends, do you think my man lies to me? They will usually come back with the standard answer, are his lips moving? I know that this is going to be hard to believe, but not all men are liars. But of course some are, so wouldn’t it be nice to have some basic tools to help interpret truth from fiction?
One very interesting thing about body language is that we have, for the most part, no control over it. For example, if we see something that we like very much, it's almost impossible to prevent our pupils from dilating. On the other hand, if we see something that we've found particularly offensive, our pupils will constrict in an effort to try and minimize what we see. This is all done subconsciously and we have absolutely no control over it.
It is often said, that the eyes are the window into the soul. When you are speaking face-to-face with a man, watch his eyes. If you ask him a question and he looks up and to the right, that’s usually a sign that he’s making something up. It’s an attempt by him to visualize something that probably never happened. That is unless he happens to be left-handed. It turns out that when people lie, they look up and away from the hand that they normally favor. If you ask a left-handed man a question, and he looks up and to the left, use caution he is probably lying.
Watch out for eyes that are shifting around, this also is an indication of dishonesty. Often times when someone is being deceitful, when asked the question, they will squint their eyes. When you are speaking to a man and his eyes are shifting around, and then he suddenly looks directly at you when he is finished speaking, it could be an indication that he is trying to determine if you’re buying the crap he is saying. Most men that lie also fidget. They may tap their fingers, squirm in their seat, wiggle their feet, or scratch the back of their head or neck.
The exception to this rule is when someone is a habitual liar. A person who is accustomed to lying attempts to overcompensate by remaining still even to the point of drawing their hands into their body. Someone who is accustomed to lying may try to maintain solid eye contact and not have a lot of movement with his eyes. If you are speaking to a man that is doing this, and you start to feel uncomfortable with his eye contact, use caution.
Also, if you are having a conversation with a man that is using a normal tone of voice and then suddenly he lowers his tone, be skeptical of what comes out of his mouth next. It probably means that he is so embarrassed about what he is saying he wants to minimize the number of people that hear him.
