Being in a loving, committed relationship is a major life goal for most of the people. Who doesn’t want to be happy with the perfect partner? But sometimes, it’s not always that plain sailing. One of the worst breaches of your love and trusting someone can do is to cheat on you. Infidelity is the other word. It’s easy to spot if you know the signs. Make yourself familiar with them, and be on your guard!
1. Their Phone’s Suddenly on “Silent Mode” All the Time…..
They could be texting and messaging their lovers. And, don’t want to have to explain every beep and ping. The odd text here and there is easily glossed over. But, when they’re on their phones all night, are they really just playing Temple Run? If they claim they’re gaming or checking emails, another big giveaway is smiling at their phones.
2. And You’re not Allowed Anywhere Near it!
If your other half suddenly changes all their passwords, then it could be a sign that they are up to no good. If he’s previously had no issue with you using his phone, yet all of a sudden he’s treating it like a state secret, you might want to ask a few questions. They may see a rise in technology being used to conduct affairs. Just look at the Ashley Madison scandal and the rise of anonymous messaging apps. Some of these even destroy messages after they’ve been read automatically leaving no trace.
3. They Accuse You of Infidelity, Having an Affair
So, you’ve been together years and you’ve never even looked in anyone else’s direction. Suddenly your friendly disposition is a cause for him to create an argument. Did you just smile at the waiter? Do you fancy him? You may find it humorous at first, but there’s nothing funny about projection. Is your partner projecting their behavior on you? Is their guilty conscience trying to find a way to pass the buck on blame?
4. What’s New, Pussycat?
Do you find that all of a sudden, they’re interested in new things and seem to know lots about them? Are they talking to you about their lover’s interests without you even realizing? There might be new clothes, new hair, new routines. Infidelity is a time consuming business. Sometimes when people fear their partner is cheating, they hire a professional investigator to keep track of their movements. PI’s certainly know all the tricks cheaters use! If someone’s having an affair, they are bound to slip up in the end. It takes a lot of effort to remember all the lies told when a web of deceit is being spun.
5. Mood Swings and Roundabouts
Your other half might be feeling the strain of having to keep up the lies and deception. They may even feel pangs of guilt about their behavior, but unwilling or unable to end the affair. Resentment towards you may show in their actions and words. They may go the other way to compensate for their extramarital activity. Your partner may suddenly start showering you with affection or gifts. Such display of love often happens after spending time in the arms of the lover. Infidelity is all around.
This list is by no means extensive. But, these are some of the most common hidden signs that your partner could be playing away from home. These are the most common signs of infidelity. Your gut instinct will usually tell you a lot. You know your partner the best! But, misinterpreting or over-judging may even end your relationship for no reason. So, think intelligently.
