Liars generally exaggerate. In an attempt to make you believe their story, they make small things big in their stories. Ex: "It was raining heavily. Suddenly a car almost ran over me. I escaped and managed to come home safely. That's why I'm late, honey".
When you try to raise doubts, your partner may turn offensive. They may start shouting at you for no reason. That is nothing but the tension of getting caught turning into anger. Ex: "How many times should I explain myself? Yes, it rained and that's why I'm late. Now, leave me alone".
Your partner may also try to divert your mind by changing topic. Ex: "By the way, how was your day, honey? Did you pay my telephone bill? When are your parents coming? I really miss them.."
Physical symptoms are sweating, trembling, biting nails and showing restlessness. Different people behave differently when telling a lie. In fact, some people keep themselves very cool even in such situations.
Your partner might hesitate to maintain eye-contact. He or she tries to close the topic fast and move on to something else.
