If someone starts a sentence with these six phrases the odds are pretty  good they are about to lie to you.

Here are some of the phrases from the “Wall Street Journal”.

1.  “I want you to know.”

Example:  “I want you to know your new haircut looks great.”

2.  “As far as I know.”

Example:  “As far as I know, everyone thinks your fiance’ is great.”

3.  “I’m just saying.”

Example:  “I’m just saying, we don’t have to go on an expensive vacation.”

4.  “I hate to be the one to tell you.”

Example:  “I hate to be the one to tell you, but people are saying they don’t like your new haircut.”

5.  “Don’t take this the wrong way.”

Example:  “Don’t take this the wrong way, but I’m not sure you’re the right person to give advice on dieting.”

6.  “To be perfectly honest with you.”

Example:  “To be perfectly honest with you, I’d go on a road trip with you.”
