How to know if your partner is cheating on you? Have you noticed a change in the behavior of your partner in recent days? Do you think there might be someone other than you in his/her life? Or are you just doubting them for absolutely nothing?

This happens to almost every other person once or more than once in a lifetime. It is natural to develop a sense of mistrust when someone’s behavior changes suddenly, but it can also be due to various other reasons besides cheating. The question is, how do you know what is cooking after all? You can’t just sit back and wait to see if he/she has been cheating on you.

Ways to Find Out If Your Partner is Cheating On You

Here’s how to find if your lover is loyal to you or if he/she is a lying little cheat about to be dumped by you?

1. Hey There Dressy Dressy

You know your boyfriend/girlfriend/spouse wears a certain type of clothing to work, another type to parties or when going out. If you have been in a relationship with them for long enough there is a possibility, they don’t dress up around you as much at all. But, if your significant other is suddenly buying new clothes, dressing up for work, focusing on looking impressive and pretty a little more recently, there might be something on. If they have been going to the gym out of nowhere and started watching what they are eating, when they would otherwise stuff a large pizza in their mouth at once, you need to be more alert and look for sure signs that he/she has someone else in their lives they want to impress and look good for.

2. Secrecy and Phone

Does your guy/girl have a new password on their phone? The possibility is if they are involved with someone else, they are bound to change their phone passwords frequently. They are also suddenly very private with their phones. They have app locks on their phone and they get a little frustrated when you tend to use their phones or go through their phones.

Another thing to look for is they might have stopped putting their phones at the bedside or charging their phones on the bedside tables. This may be a sign they don’t want you to see someone calling them at odd times.

3. Unreachability 

Your partner is often not reachable on their phones. They have become tougher and tougher to get in touch with. They always come up with excuses like they were busy or they did not have their phones with them. Come on, there’s only so much time a guy/girl can stay away from their phone in times like this. If they are often on business trips or away from you and are not picking up their phones this may be a sure bad sign.

4. Sudden less or more affection

This might come as a surprise, but yes, it is both ways sometimes. When your partner is cheating on you, one of these things is bound to happen. One, they will drift away from you. There is significantly less sex in your relationship and that might be not fulfilling at times too.

The second is, they will try to overcompensate for cheating, by being increasingly affectionate with you. There will be more sex than usual in your relationship and they might start appreciating you. But notice these signs and know that these are just ways to keep you distracted from the truth. Because the truth is, your partner might be cheating on you when he/she suddenly does one of these things.

5. The New Schedule

Your partner is suddenly rescheduling everything. They are working late at the office frequently. They might have started a new yoga or gym class. They might be staying back after the gym increasingly. They are often late, stuck in traffic jams, in a flat tire situation, or any other lame excuses repeatedly. You need to watch out for these signs if you want to confirm they are cheating on you or not.

6. The Emotional Connect

Even though it feels bad, you notice that your partner is emotionally distant from you.  They don’t spend enough time with you, they don’t have anything to talk about anymore. They don’t take an interest in your life anymore and they tend to steer away from emotional situations. 

Even when you are trying to confront them about cheating they will try everything in their reach to change the topic. Because the last thing a cheater wants to do is talk about it. 

These are some sure signs that your partner is cheating on you. But in some cases, it could also be some other thing they might be troubled about, or it might be your lack of trust. Have them sit down with you and calmly talk about what is bothering you, chances are they are going to break someday and submit to you that they have been cheating, or over time you will find something that will prove it.
