You trust your partner more than anyone else. You are sure they would never cheat on you. Are you? Is doubt biting your heart right now? If you feel deep inside that something is wrong, trust your gut, because it is.
Sometimes, all the signs your partner is showing to you are more than obvious…you just need to open your eyes and accept the possibility that they can do that; yes, your “You can trust me” partner is capable of cheating on you.
Here are 8 clear signs that your partner wants to cheat.
1. They talk a lot about their new “friend”.
Of course, it’s healthy for both of you to have close friends and spend time with them. However, a new “friend” suddenly appears out of nowhere and your partner can’t stop talking about them. You can’t help yourself but feel the presence of the third person even though they’re absent.
And when your partner starts comparing you to that new person, you know deep inside that there is something more about it and shouldn’t avoid the red flag.
2. They put a great effort on their physical appearance.
You were spending days, even months convincing your partner to buy nice clothing or go to the gym, and suddenly, they start to take a better care of their appearance? What happened?
While that is great news leaving you celebrating your small victory, keep in mind that maybe your partner wants to look their best just because they’re trying to impress someone else.
3. They become secretive.
Have you noticed that your partner doesn’t answer certain calls in front of you? Is their phone on silent? Do they receive messages and secretly smile?
Your partner spends a lot of time talking on their phone. And when you ask them whom they were talking to, they fail to explain: “nobody important”, “calling from work”, “forget about it” … Also, you have no access to the computer because your partner changes passwords often. They’re hiding something, don’t you think so?
4. They flirt with others in front of you.
You are about to spend some time together after a busy week. And you go for a cup of coffee somewhere to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. Finally, nobody will bother you. Are you sure about that?
Your partner seems to be bored; they’re trying to find some excitement and fun. They flirt with every single person in front of you, pretending like you don’t exist. This is not only disgusting, it’s disrespectful.
5. There is no more affection.
Your partner gets uninterested, distant, cold. They avoid hugging, kissing, sharing the bed with you. There is no more affection, no more effort for keeping the flame of love alive.
No matter what their reason is, it would be better for you to talk to them and find out what happened and whether there is a chance of saving your relationship or not.
6. They stop talking to you for no reason.
You were sharing opinions, you had a healthy way of communication and understanding. Not anymore. Your partner becomes silent. They avoid a conversation. It seems like they have nothing to share with you.
Maybe they have a problem and don’t feel ready to talk about. Maybe they’re tired of bored…or interested in someone else and afraid they will tell the wrong thing…
7. They disappear.
No messages. No calls. You haven’t heard of them for days. You get worried, angry. Then, your partner appears out of nowhere and acts like nothing happened. And all this happens more than often.
Isn’t that weird?
8. They accuse you of cheating.
You know that you didn’t cheat, and your partner knows the same. However, they are looking for a fight constantly accusing you of something that you didn’t do. They call you “unfaithful” and you get frustrated because you’re not able to prove that they’re wrong.
Doesn’t your partner want to end the relationship with you? Don’t they want to overcome their guilt of cheating, maybe?
