There are countless people out there who have been cheated on who saw the signs but decided to ignore it and give them the benefit of the doubt.
The word “cheating” itself is pretty ambiguous. Its meaning varies from person to person. There are those who define cheating as sexting or even just flirting, for example.
But what if we are able to discover the signs earlier and confront our significant other. Would it be easier for us to confront our significant other? Or would we not have it in us to even say a word and blame it on our own insecurities instead. Sometimes that gut feeling inside you whispering that your partner is cheating might just be right.
Here are 5 signs your partner may be cheating on you:
It’s not difficult to notice that your partner is being secretive. It’s true that they do have the right to their very own privacy, but they exploit that very fact to their own advantage and strongly dislike being questioned. Some of the main signs would be them putting their phones completely out of sight.
2. You can’t contact them
This may or may not be one of the biggest signs that your partner may indeed be unfaithful to you. If you start noticing that your significant other is constantly unreachable and is not likely to answer your calls then you know something fishy is up. Sometimes the excuse might be legitimate such as being in a meeting, driving or they were on another call but if the excuses are a little too consistent, then something isn’t right.
3. Constant arguments
You’ll start noticing at this point that the cheater would likely push the blame towards you. They start telling you how you were not the same as before during arguments. And how you’ve changed ever since you both got together or got married. These arguments begin due to their inner justification of cheating being poured out onto you. Hence, they start being hostile towards you and your relationship.
4. Constant use of their phone
If you start noticing that your partner is constantly using his or her phone instead of communicating with you, then something is definitely up. You’ll notice your partner constantly ignoring your messages and calls. At this point, they may constantly delete their text messages and even bring their phones with them everywhere they go. They grow incredibly secretive of their phones and would refuse to even let you browse through photos that you’ve both just recently taken to keep something from you. Unless of course, your birthday is coming up!
Do you start noticing your significant other constantly going out with friends more frequently than he or she used to? Perhaps you start noticing a little more distance from each other. This may or may not be a sign of infidelity but when you start connecting all the dots of every fact in this listicle you’ll get somewhere!
