Is he cheating on you? It’s highly likely that if you spot several of these signs, he’s cheating on you and you’d better watch out! Here’s what to know (and what to do about it).
When something bothers you it’s only natural to start becoming curious, especially when it comes to cheating. Perhaps there is something you can’t quite put your finger on, but you feel as though something is going on.
He could be out later than normal on work days, or he might have started to distance himself from you. Our gut instincts are sometimes the make or break of relationships. This means if you’re suspicious, you might need to look further into things, but it might just be some other reason he’s acting different (like he’s busy or going through something in his life). Those who cheat may not display all the signs and if they have only cheated once then they may only show one or two. However, it’s more than likely that if your partner is showing any of these signs that he is cheating.
Take The Quiz: Is He Cheating On You?
Sign #1 – He Goes Out More
You know your guy, and how much he typically goes out. If this has drastically changed, and he’s started staying behind late at work or going out with different ‘friends’ then it might be that he’s seeing someone else. We wouldn’t say this is a definite sign, but if you’re suspecting this might be one of his excuses, pull him up on it. He will either have a valid reason for being out more, or he’ll stumble on his words.
Sign #2 – He Avoids Getting Close to You
We don’t strictly mean sex, but you can include sex in this sign too. Intimacy is a beautiful thing and when you have it with someone and it either stops or your partner starts to avoid it, then it should be a red flag. You’ll know if he starts to avoid you because it won’t even just be during potentially intimate times. He may start to avoid your calls and just distance himself from you completely.
Sign #3 – He Doesn’t Think Cheating is a Bad Thing
What’s so bad about sleeping with different people while you’re in a relationship? Well, everything. If your guy is saying quotes like this or joking about going with other girls, then this could mean he’s cheating. There are a very little number of self-respecting, non-cheating guys out there that will joke or suggest cheating with other people. They know it’s wrong and don’t want you to get worried. Unless they are cheating and then they will probably say this because they’re trying to justify themselves and hide their guilt. Now, not just men cheat—keep this in mind— humans cheat—it’s not that every man is going to cheat; however, men are often stereotyped as cheaters.
Sign #4 – He Uses His Phone More Than Usual
If he’s always on his phone but takes hours to reply to you then it could be a sign of cheating. Generally, guys who cheat will talk to their other woman via text or social media when they’re not together. This is something to look out for if you suspect he’s going with someone else behind your back. However, this sign isn’t always 100%. He could simply be busy or having an important conversation and not have the time to message you back.
Sign #5 – He Smells Different
It may be a different perfume on his clothes, or just his general scent. When you’ve been with someone for a few months or years you know what they smell like daily. A change in smell is not a good sign and should be approached with caution as you don’t want to start accusing him of cheating straight away. Speaking about the situation might make you feel better as he could have just started wearing a new aftershave.
Sign #6 – He Hides His Phone from You
We wouldn’t recommend you go on his phone, or spy on his messages as this isn’t the best way to deal with any situation. However, if you’re speaking about something and he goes on his phone to search an answer but won’t let you look. This is a red flag. He is most likely worried about a message from someone else popping up whilst you’re scrolling through his phone.
Sign #7 – He Lashes Out at You
Every couple argues sometimes, this is totally normal. Yet, if your guy starts to argue with you over small, simple things he could be looking for a reason to leave you and get away. Equally and quite confusingly, he could start to be a lot nicer and buy you flowers when he normally wouldn’t. This could be a sign of guilt and him wanting to make up cheating on you with material things.
Sign #8 – You Can Feel It
These signs are something to consider and while they are correct, there is nothing like a gut instinct. If you think something is wrong and do truly suspect they’re cheating, then it is more than likely accurate. This is something you must prepare yourself for. If you’ve always trusted your guy and have previously felt secure in your relationship but now you’re having doubts, you can’t ignore them. Nothing will get better if you sweep issues under the rug and it’s better to find out now rather than later. It takes a lot of confidence to confront your fears, but you won’t regret it in the long term when you’re happier.
Being cheated on is heart-breaking and can destroy your self-confidence. If you find out that your partner has been cheating, you should dump him straight away. He might plead and beg that he will change, but a leopard can’t change its spots, and this also applies to men who cheat. After you’ve empowered yourself by saying bye to his cheating ass, make sure you pick yourself up and dust off. You’d be surprised by the millions of women who get cheated on every day and leave their relationships. You’re much better than anyone who cheats and deserve the best there is, staying with them simply stops you from ever finding true happiness.
