It’s a sad but true fact that sometimes in life both men and women cheat on their partners.
Maybe you have your suspicions that it’s happening to you, even though you truly don’t want to believe it.
Are you worried that your partner or spouse is cheating, or is your mind playing tricks on you? Unless they actually admit it or you catch them in the act there is no real way of finding out for sure.
Having said that here are five telltale signs you can look out for if you suspect your other half is playing away:
1. A Change in Their Appearance
If your partner suddenly starts to dress well when they usually just pull on a pair of sweatpants this could be a sign that your partner is cheating. Perhaps they start to take better care of their personal hygeine, like shaving more often or dosing themselves in perfume or aftershave. Unless there is another reason for this such as searching for a new job then you can consider this a sign of betrayal.
2. A Sudden Change in Their Behaviour or Attitude Towards You
If your spouses behaviour towards you changes suddenly then you may begin to wonder why. Maybe they become suddenly snappy or grumpier than usual when you talk to them, or perhaps they are paying you more attention than before because they feel guilty.
3. Staying Out Later and More Often
Another telltale sign the your partner may be cheating on you is if they spend more time at the office than usual. When someone is having an affair they will often stay out late and may even stay out all night, and then tell their partner that they were working. If you suspect that they are lying about working late then why not show up at the office one night and see for yourself.
4. Telling White Lies
Little white lies are often used to cover up bigger deceptive ones. Have you caught your partner telling you a little white lie recently? If you have perhaps it’s a sign that they’re cheating. The good news (if you can call it good news) is that when you have caught them telling one little lie it can often be easier to figure out the rest.
5. Being Secretive
Another sign that your partner might be having an affair is if they start being more secretive than normal. If you suspect something is amiss then ask to look at your partners phone and check out their reaction. If they start acting jittery and won’t allow you to see it then you know there is something they don’t want you to find on there. If they give it to you willingly then you can put your mind at rest. Similarly if your husband or wife has started using passwords on their computer and email address when they hadn’t before then you know they have something to hide.
If you recognize any of these telltale signs and think that your spouse maybe cheating then you should confront them. However, keep in mind there may be a simple explanation for their behavior!
