How to Tell if Your Man is Cheating
As upsetting as it is, infidelity is fairly common. In fact, 22% of men admit to cheating in a relationship. Even if you’re sure that he wouldn’t cheat on you, it’s not a bad idea to be on the lookout for signs that he might be cheating or that he might be thinking about it. If you do suspect him of cheating, you can either talk to him about it or wait until you’ve gathered more information to give you more of a solid case. Either way, you should be paying attention. Here are some extremely common signs that your man is cheating.
Your communication gets worse
Communication is one of the most important parts of a healthy relationship, which is why you should be mindful of your communication breaking down. Without communication, you can’t know what each other is thinking. Also, he might be intentionally not communicating so that he doesn’t slip up and say something that would give away his cheating relationship. If you find yourself reaching out to him again and again, but he’s unresponsive, there’s something wrong. It might not be cheating, but it’s something that you should approach him about.
He gets cagey about where he’s going or where he was
It’s not necessarily a red flag if he gives short answers when you ask him where he’s going; there’s every chance that he doesn’t think it’s important. But if you push him on it, and he starts trying to dodge your questions, that could be an issue. If he stays out later than he said he was going to, and he doesn’t have an answer as to why, you might want to ask yourself if something else is happening. Again, this isn’t 100% proof that he is cheating on you, but it’s still a problem.
He gets withdrawn
This is something that varies from relationship to relationship, and you’ll have to judge it for yourself. Some people are naturally a little more withdrawn – they don’t talk a lot – while some are more boisterous and engaged. If your partner starts becoming less engaged than usual and doesn’t seem to be enjoying your company as much as he usually does, then there might be a problem. But, again, this has to do with how your partner usually acts, and there are plenty of other reasons that he could seem less interested. If, for example, he’s having a difficult time with some of his friends or has a big project at work, it might just be stress. Still, you should make sure you notice these things.
He starts lying about things
Yes, this includes even little things. While lying or getting mixed up once or twice isn’t necessarily a big deal, if it becomes a continuous habit, that’s something to be worried about. Even if he’s only lying about things like how much he spent on lunch, it’s an important thing to be paying attention to. Lying about little things easily leads to lying about bigger things. It could also be something he starts doing intentionally as he gets ready to have an affair, so he can start feeling out how you respond to lies that he tells. He could also be doing it to improve his lying skills. If he does start lying to you multiple times, it’s a good idea to sit down and talk to him about how it makes you upset.
There’s no one way to tell if your partner is lying to you. But there are signs that you should look out for, and if they all come together, that’s an even more significant warning that something’s wrong. If you’re worried about it, you might want to try to find out who he’s cheating with; she might not even know he’s cheating on you with her and might be willing to approach him with you.
