Is Your Guy Cheating on You?
No one wants to be cheated on, and sometimes when we let our minds wander we jump to conclusions a little hastily. Still, if you’re concerned that your loved one is cheating on you, the last thing you want to do is make an unwarranted accusation that could cost you your relationship. Here are some signs that could indicate they are cheating, and that you should watch for.
Any change in behavior can be an indicator that your loved one is hiding something, but when it comes specifically to someone cheating a person tends to pull away.
This will start with conversations, even when they spend time with you they’re not talking about their day or their life and seem disinterested in yours. They may also become quickly irritated when you try and talk to them and use negative deflections to try and put you in the wrong or make you feel bad. If this is something that continuously happens without an explanation, it might be a sign that they are cheating on you.
Partners who have a generally high sex drive who suddenly seem disinterested in sex are likely to be getting that sex from somewhere else. Be sure before you bring this up that there isn’t something else going on such as depression or even a new medication that may diminish their sex drive. After you’ve ruled those out and made multiple attempts to improve or increase your sex drive, it might be time to discuss the possibility of your loved one cheating.
The biggest indicator, though, of someone cheating is constant little lies especially regarding where they’ve been. Sometimes it’s hard to know if they’re lying but when they’re caught in that lie, they’ll make more and more excuses. Many times a cheater will have one friend that they use as their back-up story for where they were, and often it’s without the friend’s knowledge, so if your partner is spending a lot of time with someone that they didn’t used to before, you might want to talk to that friend.
With all of these possible signs of your partner cheating on you, it is very important to keep in mind that any of these by themselves, or even all together, does not mean your partner is definitely cheating on you. However if you’re noticing these signs the best thing you can do is sit down with your partner, tell them what you’ve noticed, and what you’re concerned about. They may be able to relieve your concerns, but at least be prepared at the possibility your assumptions might be right.
