15 Awesome Places You Will Want To Have Your Wedding At

That is my cousin Chris with his just-married-wife Anna at their wedding ceremony about 2 weeks ago. They newlyweds looked stunningly happy. I noticed that the church they had their wedding in looked classical. And then I thought about myself. About where I am going to have mine when my time comes. If it ever comes. =)

Anyways, I’m sure when you wed, you’d want to have a kick ass, memorable place to do it too. I searched and found many people asking about idea places to have a wedding at. Well, here are your answers for several of the common places found all over the world that you would want to have your wedding at.

  2. Couples from all over the world exchanging vows on the white sugar sand beaches, with the emerald water and breath-taking sunsets as a backdrop. Escalate the excitement by having everyone go barefoot.

  3. Castle / Mansion Wedding
  4. Celebrities seem to have a thing with castles and mansions. One of the reasons lie in the magnitude of the place. All the rooms and halls are huge and can take thousands. I know there are lots and lots of castles in England, Scotland and Wales that make it as stunningly romantic venues for a wedding.

  6. Christians’ favourite wedding spot. It’s easier to organize, and the backdrop will never change be it stormy or sunshine.

22 Obvious Ways To Detect And Tell If A Person Is Lying

Lying is something that happens everyday in every society. A person may want to to deceive, maintain a secret or reputation, or to avoid punishment. In business, politics, romance or at home it happens and it would also be nice to know when we’re being lied to.

  1. Fidgeting
  2. Fidgeting is the most obvious giveaway. Watch for hands and legs that are shaky, rubbing, stiff, self directed, touching the face, nose, chest or behind the ear. Arms crossed over the chest while speaking is the body language for protection and sense of insecurity linked to lying. Other actions include biting the lip, covering the mouth, rubbing the forehead or temple, squinting of the eyes or rubbing of the neck. Women tend to touch their throat’s trachial area.

  3. Over Denial
  4. image source

    Repeating protests of innocence.

  5. Lack Of Detail
  6. Liars’ stories often lack detail. Push for particulars. The more specific details that a liar has to provide, the more likely he is to slip up.

  7. Uncooperative
  8. Liars are noticeably less cooperative. They are also more likely to complaint, make more negative statements and appear unfriendly to minimize slip ups.

  9. Eye Contact
  10. Unwillingness to make or never breaking eye contact is often sign of deceit.

  11. Dilated Pupils
  12. Dilated pupils and a rise in vocal pitch are more common in liars than people who told the truth.

  13. Pausing
  14. Forced to make up a story on the spot, most speakers will take a beat or two to collect their thoughts. Lies require a quick mental review of what they have told others to avoid inconsistency and to make up new details as needed.

  15. Inconsistency
  16. Having someone repeat the story again will enable you to look for inconsistencies to ferret out lies.

  17. Consciously Trying Too Hard
  18. Someone who is consciously trying to make you think he’s honest may be lying. For example you may hear the phrase ‘to be honest’ more often than not. Generally, people assume that they will be trusted most of the time. If someone expects otherwise, take a moment to think.

  19. Being Open To Possibilities
  20. Liars succeed in the area where listeners themselves do not really want to know the truth. So be honest with yourself about what it is you want to hear. A boss may want to believe that a trusted employee didn’t have his hand in the cookie jar. However, does the story make sense?

  21. Eye Direction
  22. Their eyes are not fixed upon whom they are speaking to. If the person looks up to the left upper corner of their eye, they are pulling strategy from their right side of the brain, which is the creative side, therefore creating a situation or lying. Looking at the right upper corner of the eye will invoke the left side of the brain which indicates visual recalling.

  23. Stuttering
  24. Stumbling over words without natural fluency.

  25. Change Of Subject
  26. Changing subjects quickly. A liar will definitely welcome the change and try to maintain the new subject. Their interests are clearly seen. An innocent person will appear confuse and may also try returning to the previous subject.

  27. Level Of Comfort
  28. When someone is comfortable with you while answering your questions, they will move to their comfort positions, eg. tilting their head to one side or the other. When asked a question that they might lie about or feel threatened by, they will straighten or stiffen up, no longer tilting their head.

  29. Unusually Longer Response
  30. Q : Are there any drugs or weapons in your car?
    A : There shouldn’t be.
    Q : Is this your car?
    A : Yes.

    There are drugs and/or guns/knives in the car. An innocent person in their own car would answer with an emphatic ‘NO’. Unusually much longer responses or too many details may tip you off to their desperation to get you to believe them.

  31. Filling The Gap
  32. Someone trying to lie may also ‘bridge’ over something they do not want to tell you.

  33. Ah’s Um’s Er’s
  34. People using um, ah, hmm, before answering questions are trying to think of an answer, that more times than not, is going to be a lie.

  35. Over Formal Speech
  36. Use of long words, painfully correct grammar and the full form of words or phrases that would normally be shortened, suggesting a scripted speech rather than natural conversation.

  37. Very Few Gestures And No Pointing
  38. Physical movements illustrating something being described is a common and natural activity.

  39. Justification
  40. Attempting to justify every detail with lengthy explanations.

  41. Conflict In Verbal And Physical Projection
  42. You can find many discrepancies between a lie and the actions. You may also find mismatches between the tone of voice and expression. Be sensitive to the person’s emotional expression, specifically the timing and duration, which tends to be off when someone is lying. Emotions can be delayed, remain longer than usual, then stop suddenly. Likewise, they might not match appropriately with verbal statements.

  43. Most Obvious Giveaway
  44. On paper. Seeing what someone said in writing is much more effective in detecting lies than listening to them.

If someone who knows what he is going to be asked will surely have prepared himself. The best liars in the world are the most thorough ones. For example, when Bill Clinton looked at those reporters and told them he never had relations ‘with that woman’ and never blinked or gave ANY indication he was lying, he broke the mold.

    How could I not? The roots have sunk so deep:
    All lessons of the heart that I will keep
    No matter who I am or where I go.
    Kids learn from what their parents are, and so
    You are my book of life, the thoughts I reap;
    From you I learned the rules of right and wrong
    Against which I at times had to rebel,
    Though with regret I carry with me still.
    How lucky I am to have been loved so well,
    Even as I pushed against your will,
    Relying on a father fair and strong.
