In Handy Tips, we find ways to improve your life and make it easier and explain why these tips work. Today, we will teach you the art of perfect lies.

We all know lying is bad, but certain situations give us no other option. We have a bunch of tips that can make that lie more convincing.

1. Tone it down

Newbie liars are usually easily detected not by facial expressions but by speech, especially when they have to improvise. As a rule, lies are more flowery than the truth and often contain unnecessary words. If you usually say that you were going to get some coffee, do not use phrases like “I made some time to enjoy the divine taste and invigorating aroma of coffee.” Don't be verbose, answer questions in a friendly way.

2. Slow it down

No pauses in speech can alert your interlocutor. But this does not mean that weaving a web of lies is better on the go. Come up with a legend in advance and give it out in portions, waiting for clarifying questions. If they are not asked, do not tell the rest of the legend, save the details for later.

If your interlocutor does not yawn after the second minute of talking to you, perhaps he/she is really interested. Or you simply do not notice other signals that indicate one’s desire to escape.

3. Different points of view

If you certainly want to involve friends in creating an alibi, make sure your story coincides only in general terms. Individual perception of the situation depends on the psychological state and mood of each person. If everyone says the same thing, this will warn others.
