Nobody wants to be cheated on. However, if you start to notice your partner displaying any of the following signs, it may be time to start wondering if they are sneaking around behind your back:
1. Secretive phone use
A partner who is cheating will try and hide their phone use from you. In addition, they may hang up calls quickly whenever you walk into a room or even go into a different room to receive calls and send messages. Deleting messages, clearing browser history, and changing passwords are also signs that something nefarious might be going on.
2. Improved appearance
If your partner suddenly develops exemplary grooming habits, changes up his wardrobe and begins to look more like a male model than a regular guy, it may be time to wake up and smell the coffee. The same logic also follows for a girlfriend who suddenly loses weight, has a makeover and changes the hairstyle she has had for the last five years.
3. Unexplained spending
Unexplained purchases on your credit card or a larger number of cash withdrawals can be a sign of cheating. This is especially true if your partner has not informed you of these transactions. A cheating partner might even try to stop you from viewing financial statements by intercepting them at the mailbox or deleting them from your inbox before you get a chance to review them.
4. Lack of interest in sex or unusual sex requests
If your partner suddenly loses interest in sex, it may be an indication that they are having their needs met elsewhere. On the other hand, if your partner is suddenly exhibiting unusual behavior during sex or asking you to do things they never have before, it may be time to think about where they learned about these new activities. Was it simply some online research? Or did they learn from a new sexual partner?
If your partner barks at you when you ask questions or acts as if they would rather be anywhere but near you, then they might be cheating. Hostility is a sign that they may want to leave the relationship or are feeling guilty for cheating on you. You may also find yourself constantly getting criticized for the way you look and how you do things. Of course, even if they are not cheating, this constant hostility is still a sign of a problem within the relationship.
It can be tough to think about the possibility of your partner cheating on you. However, if you notice the signs outlined above, it is probably a good idea to investigate a little further.
