Many breakups are a result of infidelity. It is never the same after confirming that your partner has ᴄʜᴇᴀᴛed on you. But, first thing first. How do you tell if your partner is ᴄʜᴇᴀᴛing on you? What are the signs that your better half is likely to ᴄʜᴇᴀᴛ? This is what we shall look at in this post.
1. Lack of Intimacy
When did you and your partner go out for dinner or to have fun? If it has been quite a while and you were the kind to roll around the hay, then he is pulling back. If there is nothing you are aware of that is causing the distance between the both of you, something is wrong.
When someone is ᴄʜᴇᴀᴛing, they don’t need anything from their partner because they will be catered for elsewhere. They could also be more caring and loving trying to hide their guilt from their partner.
If you feel as if your partner is pulling back or is being too romantic, try to find out why.
2. Change in Appearance
If you notice a change in fashion, haircut, eating healthily, or sudden exercises, you may need to look deeper. They may be trying to appear attractive to someone else or to fit someone’s description of the desired partner. If your partner looks ordinary when around you and looks super cool when going out, there is a probability they are ᴄʜᴇᴀᴛing.
3. Unexplained Expenses
Infidelity is expensive. From drinks to gifts to dinners to hotel rooms, the cost is too much. Check out for unexplained withdrawals from your or your partner’s account.
Ask for an explanation to verify if the withdrawals were necessary. If you think they are lying, try to investigate why the money was withdrawn before concluding.
4. They are Hiding Things on Their Phone
When someone is about to ᴄʜᴇᴀᴛ or is already ᴄʜᴇᴀᴛing, a phone or an iPad is one of the platforms for communication. If their phone rings or they receive a message and you notice they have panicked, something is off.
If it was not a problem to check their emails before, but now they don’t want you near their phone, there is something wrong.
Watch out if your partner is becoming more private with their gadgets or is deleting messages more than before. After all, in a transparent relationship, there is no need to clear calls and browsing history!
5. They are Jealous and Anxious
Does your partner get anxious and jealous easily? If yes, it could be a sign they will ᴄʜᴇᴀᴛ on you. Although some people become jealous for fear of losing their partners, there is a probability that they might be insecure when you are around other people.
If you have been in a relationship for a while and you have noticed an increase in jealousy, it’s high time you investigate whether he is ᴄʜᴇᴀᴛing.
6. They are Untraceable
If you are in a relationship for some time, it’s likely you know each other’s schedule. If your partner is not where they are supposed to be, ask why. When someone is on anything shady, they keep on lying about their whereabouts.
Before concluding if your partner is a ᴄʜᴇᴀᴛer or trying to be one, try to have a conversation about your fears or doubts.
7. Friends Behaving Differently
In any case of infidelity, the betrayed is always the last to know. Most of your partner’s friends are aware of the betrayal long before you do. In most cases, your friends too are aware but unable to let you know about it.
Knowing that your relationship is about to get messy, some friends tend to keep off or behave weirdly when around you. On the other hand, you may notice some friends being too nice and sometimes shy away from any conversation regarding your partner.
