Here are 10 ways to tell he’s lying to you:
1. He pauses before answering
Former CIA officers list this as the No. 1 red flag when detecting a lie. It means that he’s trying to think of an excuse. Even if he already has an alibi made up, his brain still has to remember all the details of the excuse before he can tell you his lie.
2. He covers his face
There’s a reason that Pinocchio’s nose grew each time he told a lie — when you aren’t telling the truth, you can see it in your face. If he puts his hand over his mouth, covers his eyes or rubs his nose a lot while telling you a story, he is probably trying to, quite literally, cover up his lie.
