It’s a horrible feeling when you think you’re being cheated on. Your heart sinks into your stomach, and you can’t even think about anything else. Unfortunately, cheating is all too common. Here are some common signs that your partner might be cheating on you.
They Call or Text You Less Often – If your partner used to call you or text you all the time, and now barely messages you at all, it could be a sign that something else is occupying their time.
They Suddenly Start Breaking Dates – When they suddenly start cancelling plans or breaking dates at the last minute, they might have other plans with someone else.
They Aren’t Where They Said They Would Be – They said they had to work late, so you took them in a snack for their break only to find out they had the night off. That should raise some suspicions.
They Are Avoiding You – If your partner is normally very attentive, but then suddenly starts avoiding you, they might be cheating.
They Are More Affectionate – If they suddenly become a lot more affectionate than usual, it is sometimes because they feel guilty for cheating on you.
They Are More Distant Lately – On the opposite end of the spectrum, guilt from cheating can make a once attentive partner become very distant.
Your Friends Saw Them with Someone Else – If your friends or family are telling you that they recently saw your partner out with someone else, you should pay attention.
They Are Constantly Texting – People who are cheating might receive constant texts, especially at odd hours. If your partner is receiving a lot of text messages, and is anxious around the time the texts start coming, it’s a red flag.
They Are Secretive about Their Phone – Someone with nothing to hide won’t need to hide or delete their texts. They also won’t need to leave the room or go outsideto answer calls.
They Are Suddenly Buying You Gifts – Everyone loves to get gifts, but a remorseful partner might start showering you with gifts for no apparent reason.
They Are More Worried Than Usual about Their Appearance – Everybody wants to look their best. However, if they have taken a sudden interest in their appearance and bought a new wardrobe or started working out, you might want to look into why.
They Have Cheated Before – If they cheated on their ex, they will cheat on you next. People who have cheated before are likely to cheat again, and now that they’ve got experience, they just might get away with it.
They Have a Short Temper – Partners who normally have an even temper might start getting upset about little things and anger easily due to stress from guilt.
They Are Acting Possessive – Even if they’ve never seemed jealous or possessive before, they might if they’re cheating. They become obsessed with the fact that they’re cheating to the point where they become paranoid that you’re doing it too.
