Living with a partner whom you suspect of cheating is a horrible place to find yourself. All your emotions and finances are tied up in one person. And that can leave you feeling left out in the cold. In a word: you’re vulnerable. But a sneaking suspicion isn’t enough to convict him. What are the tell-tale signs that suggest he’s cheated?
He’s Suddenly Come Over All Shy With His Technology
Do you remember the days when he used to pass you his smartphone without a second thought? “Babe, would you mind punching in the address on the sat nav?” Or “would you mind seeing who that was who just text me?” Well, if he’s cheated, those days are long gone. Now he always gets up to read his phone or ignores it when he’s driving. You offer to read out the messages, but he declines. That’s not how he does things anymore, apparently. No, now only he and he alone can read his texts and posts on Facebook.
Of course, he might not be cheating at all. But in all likelihood, he’s keeping something from you. These days many women are hiring a private investigator to get to the bottom of it all, if only for peace of mind.
You’ve Noticed Drastic Changes In His Sexual Appetite
You might think that if he’s found a new partner, he’s going to be less interested in you. But this is not always the case. Some men, like some women, find it a turn on to have more than one partner at once. Remember, a new partner can initiate a rush of sexual appetite. Also, keep an eye out for changes in behavior in bed. Perhaps he’s just trying something new. Or maybe he learned it elsewhere.
Suddenly He’s Got Lots Of Friends And Work Responsibilities
It’s the most cliched cover story for affairs: working late at the office. But, surprisingly, it’s still used by men who cheat on their partners. Recently, Charles Orlando of Your Tango interviewed 50 married men who had cheated. They revealed their take on this standard alibi. One person interviewed said that he had flexible working options. He started seeing a new manager at work. And soon he was going to the office far more often than he used to. He told his wife that it was all part of the demands of his new job. But the reality was just that he wanted to hook up with his colleague. Rather than being a single night, business trips turned into affairs that went on for two or three days.
Rapid Changes In Appearance
Did your man always sport a beard? Did he always look so trim and athletic? If not, then it might be a sign he’s found another partner, especially if it seems to come out of nowhere. One man reporting to Orlando, said that he lost about ten pounds in a week after starting his affair. Why? Because of the body’s primal response to courtship. Our bodies know what looks good, apparently, so they start toning up for the occasion.
