Honesty is one of the most important traits to look for in a partner. When someone is true to their word, you find it easier to trust and count on them.
Unfortunately, not a lot of people value honesty. To save yourself some heartache and pain down the line, watch out for these signs you’re dating a dishonest man.
1. You see him lie to others
If you’ve ever witnessed your man lie to other people easily, then he has probably lied to you as well. Don’t ignore this red flag and assume you’re different from the rest. In fact, the easier it is for him to tell a lie, the more dangerous he is.
2. He tells white lies
One of the major signs you’re dating a dishonest man is if you have caught him lying about things he doesn’t even need to lie about. This shows that he gains some sort of pleasure from being deceptive and there’s no way in hell he will be honest about the big stuff. Some people simply have the compulsion to lie whenever and wherever because they get a kick out of messing with your head and getting away with their tall tales.
3. Your instincts are warning you
We all have gut instincts that let us know whether or not a person is to be trusted. If you’re with someone and for some inexplicable reason, you just can’t let go and trust him, it could be your body trying to tell you something.
4. He lacks vulnerability
When he finds it difficult to open up to you and share his feelings, it could be one of the signs that you’re dating a dishonest man. Of course, it could also mean he’s not trusting of you either. However, keep in mind that dishonest people tend to avoid giving too many details about their past, personal and day-to-day life because you can very likely catch them in a lie if they do.
