A relationship is beautiful when the two of you are in sync and love almost every bit of the journey but if you’re already asking if your partner is cheating, then it might be true.
Most at times, your gut feeling is right and if you are having those thoughts, there is a possibility that it is happening.
Signs of cheating differs in every relationship but there are some common threads that every partner can look out for if they feel their partner is cheating on them.
Below is a list of 5 common signs your partner might put up if they are cheating in the relationship.
1. Secretive Use Of Phones or Computer
If your partner’s phone and laptop never required a password before, and now they do, that’s not a good sign. Cheating partners tend to guard their communication devices as if their lives depend on it.
If you ask to review or use your partner’s phone, and they say no, that’s a problem especially if you had easy access to it earlier.
2. Your Partner Acts Hostile Towards Your Relationship
Does he or she gets easily angry over little things? Is your partner showing less and less care about matters which concerns you or the relationship? If your answer is yes then they might be cheating.
More often, your partner’s internal justifications for cheating leak out, and they behave judgmentally toward you and your relationship. This is a strong signal not to avoid.
3. Intimacy Fades Gradually
Sometimes, the loving and caring partner you cherished so much acts as a douche bag once in a while but if that act continues for a long time–it is indication that he/she might be cheating.
If their intimacy suddenly drops with no reason, your sex life is on life-support, then there are chances that their focus has shifted to another partner or your actions are turning them off.
4. Their Friends Act Weird Around You
If your partner is cheating on you, trust me, their friends are in on it to and they know every detail.
The knowledge of your partner cheating automatically causes their friends to either avoid you or be overly nice to you just to cover up what is happening.
5. They become Unreachable
It is easy to predict your partner’s schedule if you’ve stayed in the relationship for long– but in a case where you know there is a free time for the two you and they seem unreachable, something might be taking their time, maybe another partner.
If your partner is not where they are supposed to be or doing what they are not supposed to, you should be on the alert. Your suspicion might even heighten if you can’t reach them and they keep giving flimsy excuses as to their whereabouts.
Taking into consideration all the above, it is instructive to note that your partner may exhibit all these signs yet might not be cheating. We would advice you gather evidence before confronting your partner about your suspicion.
