Liars. They’re the worst. Yes, it’s true that we all lie from time to time. So, in that sense, we are liars. But there are those of us who just lie pathologically. These are the obsessive liars who are constantly spouting falsehoods every chance that they can get. They are so compulsive with the way that they lie. And they do so without regard for the feelings or welfare of other people. Sometimes, their lying is so bad that they even mislead other people for no reason at all.
So be very wary of the people who say the following things:
1. “They, He, She, You… etc.”
A liar is going to avoid speaking about themselves a lot. For the most part, they are only ever going to want to talk about other people. They will want to take the heat off themselves and focus more on the people surrounding them. It’s a common diversion tactic so that they will take the attention off of their lie.

2. “To be honest with you…”
It might seem like a perfectly harmless phrase at first. But if you really take the time to think about it, a person who would be telling the truth wouldn’t really be trying too hard to convince you that they’re being genuine. They would let the truth speak for itself. They wouldn’t really feel compelled to preface whatever they have to say with a statement like “to be honest with you…” or something like that.

3. “I always…” or “I never…”
Whenever someone talks in extremes on a consistent basis, then you have reason to doubt that person’s truthfulness. The truth is that life isn’t going to always be made up of extremes. And someone who tends to speak in superlatives most of the time is someone who might be stretching the truth a little too much. So, be wary of someone who says stuff like “I always” or “I never” a lot. [Also Read: 7 Ways to Be More Romantic to Your Partner]
4. “I’m not the one to blame!”
A serial liar is someone who is never going to take ownership or responsibility for their faults or actions. They are constantly looking for scapegoats. They will lie both to themselves and those around them about their guilt. They would never want to admit to anyone that they have made mistakes. And that’s why they would just rather find someone else to pin all of that blame on instead. How to know he is lying. [Also Read: 7 Ways to Deal with a Jealous Girlfriend]
5. Oversharing or under sharing.
And of course, there is the case of the deficit or surplus in information whenever a liar is talking to you. Sometimes, in an effort to really keep you from uncovering the truth, they will give you like little details or information as possible. However, the converse is also true. They will sometimes rehearse their spiels and alibis to the point that they give you more information and details that you actually really need. How to know he is lying
