Every liar spins a web of lies that they use to support themselves, to cover their tracks and just keep that trail of absolute nonsense blazing behind them. The good news is that the “art form” of cheating is just as old as lying and if you know what the common lies are that most cheaters tell you’ll be far better equipped to handle them and beat them at their own game.
1. I took a 2nd job on the side
If you get this one then it’s pretty easy to ask them “well, where’s the 2nd check? If they can’t produce it then you caught them right on the spot! If they thought it through then you could always dig a bit deeper and find out where this supposed “2nd job” actually is and all that. But, I would keep the detective work hidden in the background. Check THIS PAGE out real quick if you want some tools to help you out.
2. I’ve got to work late again tonight
Right… and every night for the past few weeks? Who do you think you’re kidding with that one buddy because it isn’t me. This one is a bit more difficult to catch them on in many cases but if the opportunity arises and it’s necessary then looking into it might be in your benefit.
3. I was just texting a friend / co-worker
If your significant other is always on that texting machine then you might have to consider their really popular with somebody- the question is who? Yeah, friends text all the time but let’s face facts here. There reaches a point when texting becomes excessive and suspicious so just keep an eye out for this one. If they’re getting texts at all hours of the day or night and it’s something you know isn’t the “norm” for them then there is something not exactly right going on here.
4. Yeah, everything’s fine
Is it? Is everything just fine or are you just having a brain fart right now and don’t know how to properly respond to a question so to buy some time you just threw out a generic answer? I’m willing to bet it’s the buying time thing, especially if there was no follow-up to that with a bit more details on what’s really going on.
5. I was just out with some friends
You’ll have to feel this one out because it may very well be true. What he was doing with said friends however, who’s to really say.

6. She’s just a friend
Again, this could be completely true but what sort of “friend” is she exactly, who’s to say for sure. It’s not the wisest thing to become overly suspicious of your significant other but in the hopefully unlikely event that your partner is mixed up in something unsavory you might want to look into it for yourself as best you can just so you can put those suspicions to rest or know they’re correct.
7. She understands me (or) she just gets me
Well isn’t that convenient for the both of you. I’m sure she “gets you” quite well and that’s just fantastic for you. What about the person who you’re actually supposed to confide in and share things with, what about your partner, what about you! If your significant other is going to someone else for emotional support, especially if it’s to talk about the hardships your relationship may be going through then you can count that as a huge red flag.
8. It’s not what it looks like
Yeah, we all know about this one and it’s a pretty common one I’m sorry to say. Let me just put this out there by saying that sure, there is a slight chance it’s really not all that bad, it’s ‘not what it looks like” but the unfortunate truth is that most of the time it’s exactly what it looks like. You just weren’t supposed to see it.
9. You’re cheating on me, aren’t you?
Cheaters and liars expect to be cheated on and lied to. It’s hard for them not to view the world in this way because it’s how they navigate through it themselves. Also, shifting blame is a really great way to take some of the heat off of yourself for a while which gives them time to think up an even better lie.
10. I still love you (or) I just didn’t want to hurt you
If you’ve caught them in the act of cheating and they give this sob story about how they don’t want to hurt you and blah blah then they’re probably not somebody you want to continue on with in the future. The thing about people who can’t remain faithful to the one they supposedly “love” is that they have this constant need for validation and they’re willing to go through great lengths to get it, even if that means cheating on the “one they love.”
If you have reason to believe that your partner is sneaking around on you then you should take a peek at the link I’ll give you here, there are some nifty tools you can use to help you get to the bottom of things.
