5 Signs He’s Lying To You

Hey, Lovelies!

Ever get that gut feeling you are being lied to by your partner? I’m not talking about little fibs – I mean explosive ‘change everything forever’ types of whoppers. The gut instinct develops within us from birth. Darwin’s fight or flight theory to help us stave off would-be predators. Granted, it is not always right. However, if you are in a relationship and you get the overwhelming feeling things aren’t right, they usually aren’t. Here are 5 red flags to look out for:

Suddenly you are being insulted and shouted at for no reason whatsoever that you can imagine. As far as you remember, you didn’t torch his car or bury his favourite Xbox game. So, what’s the deal If he is being aggressive out of the blue? Generally, this is a sign he is feeling guilty about something and this is how is dealing with it. By keeping you at arm’s length and treating you this way there can be no intimate conversations and his behaviour can carry on with minimal thought.

2. Distance

Unless you have been a total cow to him, or he has not been in your Corona bubble, the explanation may be that he is keeping things from you. He may be a bit blue or overburdened. However, if you add unusual distance to the other signs, it can be a red flag that he really doesn’t want to share. Thus, you are not getting the full story. He may want to end the relationship, or he may be hiding bad behaviour – either way, it shouldn’t be ignored.

3. Obvious Little Lies That Make No Sense

If you are having a convo and he drops himself in it, with little lies for things that seem to have no point – it is often due to them being a cover-up for something far deeper. On the other hand, you could just be living with a compulsive liar – but then you would probably know that by now.

4. Blame

He is telling you his aggression is down to you – but you honestly cannot think of anything you have done that is different. If you keep being blamed, he is simply turning the tables back on you to avoid being under the spotlight. This is a sign he is not man enough to own whatever it is and definitely a sign there is zero respect. Move on.

5. Confusion

This ties in with the other signs. You are completely dumbfounded at what could possibly be going on to warrant this alter ego, split personality attitude. It is total confusion and yet, still his bad behaviour continues. Put this red flag with the others and you have yourself a big problem. The solution? If you want it to work (really if he acts like this, why would you?) then give him the chance to spill. If he carries on, take it as your ticket to leave. There really is no future with a person who is willing to behave so badly. You deserve more!

The Best Christmas Party Games (That Cost Nothing)

Hey Lovelies!

I have compiled a list of the best and most fun Christmas party games. This time of year causes so much financial strain – so don’t add to it with high-priced unnecessary games that probably won’t raise much of a giggle. The following party games cost nothing. Granted, (should you be an adult) some of them are a tad more enjoyable after a little vino – but hey, it’s Christmas so it’s okay!

Also, should anyone be worried about problems at Christmas you can read the best tips for avoiding stress and ensuring you have an awesome time here

1.For Everyone: The Bauble Game

Simple yet incredibly fun – whether you are playing the game on Christmas eve with your children, or on Boxing Day evening with your drunken friends. Better yet, all you need is a bauble from your tree (just make sure you don’t grab a beauty gift bauble by accident, or you may not win).

The rules are: Line your baubles up (1 per player) on a smooth surfaced floor. Using a piece of card or A4 paper, the object is to waft your bauble to the finish line without touching it. First one wins. For extra competitive sparkle, delegate someone to blow a whistle for the game to commence. Definitely fun with a drink.

2.For Adults: Have You Ever?

Make a list of crazy experiences on cards, beginning with “Have You Ever?’ Nominate someone to read out each card. Anyone who admits to any of the experiences on the cards must drink a shot of the other players’ choice. Last person left standing wins.

3.For All: Truth Or Lies?

I absolutely love playing this Christmas party game – it never gets boring! The game can be formatted to be adult only or child-friendly versions. Basically, the game is a take-off from the very funny TV show, ‘Would I lie to You?’ If you haven’t seen it, it goes like this: Choose a theme (such as childhood experiences or past events).

Get 3 people to write down either a lie or something true about the theme. 2 people have to be lying and 1 is telling the truth. The other team listen whilst each statement is read out and then decide who is telling the truth. If they guess right the other team have to have a shot each.

For child-friendly versions, the winning team get to eat a chocolate or candy, or maybe choose a sour food for the losing team to eat (i.e. A piece of lemon). Just make sure before you begin that no one suffers from any allergies.

4.For All: Karaoke To YouTube

Christmas party games which involve watching other people massacre songs without any awareness of how bad they sound (visuals of cats voluntarily flinging themselves in a river), are endlessly entertaining (just ask Simon Cowell). You can pick up a cheap mic from most places and now there are even microphones you can plug into your iPhone. However, should you not have one to hand, it doesn’t matter a scrap. People have to choose a song to sing to and the other team members score them from 1-5. After each person has had a go, the lowest scoring person must have to either: have a drink of the other team members choice, do a dare of the other team members choice or eat something they hate.

5.For All: What The Hell Am I Eating?

This Christmas party game is so funny – but again, it is very important to ensure no one is allergic to anything beforehand – or it could end up being extremely unfunny. The general idea: Say, if you have 4 people blindfolded and one person supplying the food. A selection of delicacies is tried by each person. Firstly, with a peg on their nose and then again without the peg. The aim obviously is to guess correctly as to what they are tasting.

Each loser for each trial must either:  eat 2 mouthfuls of their most-hated food or drink; run down the street pretending to be a chicken; call someone up and tell them an outrageous lie or hop on one leg for 20 minutes. Clearly these rules can be adjusted to suit whoever plays the game.

All of these party games are fun and cost basically nothing!
