8 Signs Your Partner Is Going to Cheat

These are signs of a potential cheater. As with any behavior, it can be challenging to reveal the intentions behind it. Therefore, the more “hints” present in your relationship, the more likely a real problem exists. Here are the signs: 

1. They guard their phone, social media, and computer.

Nobody loves having their phone tampered with. However, it isn’t unusual to snoop around with your partner’s phone in a committed relationship or marriage. Indeed, it’s not that big of a deal. Unless they either have something to hide or are simply in a bad mood.

If your significant other suddenly start guarding his or her phone, computer, social media, or suddenly opposes to what was not an issue previously, you may consider additional caution.

2. Lack of intimacy

When two people are in love with one another, it is natural for intimacy. If the other person shows no interest in either, it may be a sign of infidelity.

This is especially true if no prior issues existed in this area. If nothing else, this behavior is indicative of some emotional or physical disconnect. If you face this issue, you might want to have a serious discussion with your partner because they may be getting new intimacy tricks outside of your relationship. 

3. The need for privacy all of a sudden.

The sudden need for privacy signifies your partner is cheating. This must not overlook the reality that every person in a relationship requires a “me time,” and there is absolutely nothing wrong with this.

However, when “your significant other” continually says things like “I have to be alone,” “just let me be,” or “I need time to think,” that could be a strong hint of cheating.

4. A sudden defensive rationalizes behavior.

It’s normal for two people in a serious relationship to understand the differences between each other’s personalities. We hope you know your partner’s defects and accept them.

However, it is odd for a partner to suddenly rationalized their behavior; suddenly, it seems like nothing you do is right for them. Reasonable dialogue is a need for any relationship; if this becomes a problem and your gut tells you that your better half is cheating on you, you are probably right.

5. Sudden Irregular financial expenses

Cheating costs money for gifts and financial expenses. Anyone in a committed relationship understands the importance of monetary support. Usually, any outgoing money is acknowledged and accounted for.

If your partner, all of a sudden, drifts from this mutual expenditure and engages in “squandering” for which they cannot account for. In that case, it may indeed be a manifestation of infidelity at best because cheating costs money for gifts, dinners, hotel rooms, and trips.

6. Becoming sudden fashion-conscious

We all want to look our best for various reasons, most commonly, to look respectable and professional. However, a sudden change of appearance without explanation is uncommon, especially for those who have previously shown little interest in appearance.

Those who face a mid-life crisis often cite a shift in fashion as a “motivation” to look younger and more present. Of course, it could indicate that they are trying to appear more attractive to their sidepiece. 

7. They’re always excessively late or need to travel for work.

Anyone in a faithful relationship will tell you that a schedule is necessary to make things work. This is especially true if someone is married, has kids, or other obligations for which they are responsible for.

Even if that person cannot account for such behavior, sudden excessive lateness is a warning sign.

Also, if your partner has never been away on a friend’s trip, business journey and suddenly needs to travel for work or with friends, mostly on the weekend, which could mean that they are having an affair.

8. They’re emotionally distant.

Emotionally distant all of a sudden is a sign that your partner is probably cheating. Emotional detachment from someone you love is like a punch to the heart.

Unfortunately, this detachment is too often a prelude to a relationship problem. It’s easier for a potential cheater to distance themself emotionally from someone than to confront the real problem. It’s a cowardly act, in many ways.

IN CONCLUSION:

If you notice that your partner is cheating on you, you don’t feel inspired to confront them. I suggest that you talk to a trusted friend, your pastor, your mom, or a therapist.

  1. My fiance has been acting kind of. Strange lately. He used to let me clean out his friend requests from his. Cell phone but now all of. A sudden. He don’t want me to clean. Out his phone. He wanted to make love to me last night. But for some reason that did. not happen. What should I. Think?

    1. Have an hinest talk with him. Perhaps call off the engagement and return the ring, if he gave you one. If he truly wants you, he will work to earn your trust. Otherwise, move on. I speak from experience.

    2. It’s not your job to get him to seek help to change his behaviour. I would end this relationship and get comfortable being single and enjoying life. When a person is happy doing what she enjoys, she will be attrctive to someone who also enjoys life. You will eventually find someone you can trust and get along with. This might take a few years, but the wait is worth it.I speak from my personal experkence.

  3. My man and I have been together for 2 years now and we have a child together also. We love each other and our son but he always seems to be distant. As of recently I found out he was talking to other women including his ex’s. Most of them just friends however I have really high anxiety, trust issues and separation anxiety. So my mind makes me think that he’s going to leave. I talked to him about it and he’s stopped talking to his ex and others who I asked him to stop talking to but he’s still talking to other women via text and I’m scared he’s going to leave. He’s ex also decided to message me saying that my man cheated on me with her and she’s got the clap so we needed to get tested. I was so Devastated and mad. He told me no. So to put my mind at ease, I got tested. It came back negative 👍 so I felt more relieved but now I’m want him to get tested too. I love my husband and I trust him but this is stress I’ve been under for the past year. Idk what I should do. I don’t want to start over or break up my little family. I’m just so lost. Help?
