Advice: How to tell if someone is lying
The secret or mystery as you may call it that everyone wants to know. Whether you’re dating, in a business, or just friends when something sounds fishy you are in desperate need to know if someone is lying.
The typical lies which you should never fall for:
If her or she is always busy (absolutely lying) ¬†This type of lie means that he or she doesn’t like you, but isn’t ready for a relationship and doesn’t want to let you go, but doesn’t want to hang out either.
I missed your call (lying). This type of lie can be true only if he or she calls very very late. Like 3 hours after you called them and then they say that they just saw the call. When people lie to you this way it can mean that they are really annoyed by your b.s,voice, or sense of being. They have better things to do than talk to you. They don’t want to listen, but they do pitty you so they won’t be too harsh.
They say they have to leave early because their:
A. Stomach Hurts
B. Dont Feel So Good.
C. A family member from out of town is coming in and they have to see them.
D. They promised an old friend to take them out.
E. A family emergency (yes, I know what your thinking. Horrible people sometimes right?)
This one applies to all teens:
F. His or Her mom is so strict and they won’t let them go out. Or their parents are telling them to come home early vise versa.
My experience with F.
I had a friend a best friend. We told each other everything and Id seen her parents. I saw her parents ever day, not her dad so much because he was working. Her mom was there all the time. Now my ‘best friend’ use to tell me that some times she couldn’t go out because her ‘mom’ was being a….female dog… and wasn’t letting her go out. So in ALL TRUST I believed her.
THEN…well the internet really exposes people. I looked her user name up on google (which is a really good idea to do to everyone you know) and I saw an account that she had on the popular question site Yahoo Answers. Where you ask random questions and people answer or you answers other peoples questions and you get points. Anyways, I clicked on her account and scrolled all the way to her ‘Answered Questions.’
I saw a question that she had answered like 3 months ago. The question was : ¬†”How can I lie if I don’t wanna hang out with someone? ” And she answered: ” Well, what I do is I tell them that my madre aka mother is being a “female dog” and she won’t let me do out and Im stuck doing chores. Works all the time”
My eyes popped. So I called up the dum dum, blasted it in her face, and never spoke to her again.
My advice to all who are reading this: NEVER LIE.
Be honest, if people don’t like it then they have to deal with that. Unless you are planning a birthday party for someone and its a surprise then you never Lie!
