( I had a plan...I was going to meet the man I was going to marry by the time I was 21
get engaged and be married in a year...have all my kids before I was thirty because I thought that was too old...I met the Greek when I was 20...when he asked me out I told him of my plan then told him if he wasn't in for that game plan forget it...cause I wasn't wasting my time on a relationship that wasn't going anywhere...well, I guess he thought playing the game was worth it just to get into my pants...He even bought me a cheap engagement ring...He was my first...and my husband was my second and last...
I found out he was dating my best friend too and that hurt.....So after 2 1/2 years of his cheating and no wedding bells ...I tossed him aside...It was getting late in the plan so I just married the next guy who asked me...One more year and I would have been labeled An Old Maid (25)...that was even worse than marrying the wrong man....OR SO I THOUGHT !)
( Here's the funny part...yesterday I saw something about body language on tv and I do believe I had a book on that subject years ago (or at least read one......so I figured I'd go on line and check out a few things..How can you tell if someone is lying to you was one...this is where I started laughing...BLINKING was one of the signs...well, the Greek used to blink so hard when he was around me that he looked like one of those bobble head dolls...I thought he was having a spasm...I asked several of his friends and even my best friend if they noticed him doing it when he was around them... Everyone said no...I am feeling guilty all these years thinking it was my fault for making him so nervous...Here it was his own lying self...When I told my son...We had a good laugh...I think I want to get a book on body language just for the heck of it...)
Seven Common Signs of Lying ( THIS PART I GOT ON THE NET FOR YOUR INFORMATION)
No eye contact. Generally, if someone is lying they will not look you in the eye, at least during a certain part of the conversation. Normally, people make eye contact for at least half of a conversation, so anything less than this could be suspicious. One caveat: there are some people who will take great pains to make eye contact with you even if they're lying, simply to make you think they're not.
You don't need a lie detector test to find out if someone's lying to you --just check out these seven signs of lying.
Change in voice. A change in the pitch of a person's tone, or a lot of stammering (umm, ah), or throat clearing could indicate a lie.
Unusual body language. If a person taps their foot a lot, fidgets with their hands, raises their shoulders, turns away from you or brings their hand to their face (to touch their chin or nose, etc.) -- in other words, if they act nervous or uncomfortable -- it could mean they're telling a lie. Also watch out for blushing (or becoming pale) and increased blinking.
Something sounds fishy. Making statements that contradict each other, are inconsistent or don't sound quite right are usually part of a lie.
Overly defensive. Sometimes when a person is lying they will become extremely defensive, refusing to answer any questions and even accusing you of lying. This may mean they have something to hide.
Changes subject easily. If someone is lying and you change the subject, chances are high that they'll go right along with it. A person telling the truth, however, will likely ask why you changed the subject and want to go back to it.
Humor or sarcasm. A guilty person will often try to change the subject using humor or sarcasm.
Of course, no one behavior can tell for sure whether or not someone is telling the truth or lying. While you should trust your instinct, if you're not sure it's best to try to get some evidence to back up your accusation. Rather than relying on a specific behavior, catching a liar in the act is best done by watching their normal behaviors. When those behaviors suddenly change, that's when a lie has likely been told.
