Signs of Cheating

We have watched many marriages and relationships being torn apart because of infidelity and dishonesty. It is heart wrenching to witness beloved friends having to live their worst nightmare as they discover their spouse or partner has been selfish and unfaithful.

Cheating doesn’t start suddenly, it is an idea festering in your partner over time and mostly you do not want to acknowledge and ignore it. This type of emotional cheating that can start in the office, the gym or most commonly online.

Online we can see and find other people more attractive, sexier and making our dreams come true.

10 of the most common signs that your partner is cheating:

1. Passwords are often changed
If your spouse or partner changes their passwords often for no reason. This is to hide content so no one can see.

2. Social media profiles
An unfaithful partner or spouse will have their social media profiles (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc.) presented as if they are single, with no strings attached with heaps of photos with their friends from their younger days. How much time does your spouse or partner spend on social media and at what times?

3. Mobile Phone
In a healthy relationship, your partner will allow you to talk on his or her phone without fear, however pay attention if your partners phone rings and they are in bathroom. Do they rush to answer the phone?! Also how free is your partner when conversing on the phone in front of you.

As well, does your partner have the habit of changing their mobile or turning the mobile phone off when they go sleep and they have never done this before.

Have you tried calling your partner late in the evening at work to ask them when they will be home for dinner but there is no answer for hours, instead short SMS response.

4. Cleared history
A big sign that someone is being unfaithful is when you find their computer or phone history cleared regularly. Though your spouse might be doing this for security reasons, it is more likely that they are trying to “cover their tracks.”

5. Social activities
Always observe when your spouse or partner has a late-night out, sometimes a boy’s night out is just a cover for something more sinister. Have they joined the gym but they never take their sports equipment? Car wash must be done on Saturday morning in a suburb 20 km away from yours?!

6. Increase the extra costs
In marriage it’s expected that costs be shared, mortgages, rental, entertainment, trips together etc. However, you suddenly notice that there is money missing from the account without any justifiable reasons. Your partner is spending money, but not on you.

7. Physical appearance
Be careful not to jump to conclusions with this one. Your spouse’s newfound desire to be more physically attractive might be a result of trying to look more professional at work, or maybe they are just trying to catch your eye. However, if you have noticed any of the other signs on this list, you may have a problem. When seeking a new relationship or adventure, people usually take extra care in managing their appearance.

8.Shame on you
Regardless how good life may be, you will be blamed for everything and there could be an increase in domestic disputes over the most frivolous of things.

9. Things you will hear:
1. “We are just friends.”
2. “I need you to respect my privacy.”
3. “I Love You But I’m Not In Love With You.”
4. “I need some space to figure out my feelings.”

10. Uncomfortable Around You
When your mutual friends start acting strangely toward you, because they either know about the cheating or have been told stories about your horrible partner.

When your partners’ co-workers are uncomfortable in your presence, because either they know about the affair or have heard rumours and horror stories about it.
