How do you know if your man is cheating? If you notice your boyfriend or husband showing any of these signs, you should be very suspicious!
If you’re reading this article, there must be some doubt in your mind about your man’s fidelity. Before we delve deeper into this topic, take a moment to acknowledge that you have this funny feeling. A woman’s intuition is a powerful thing. Your feelings are valid so don’t dismiss them. Much of the time when a man is caught cheating, the woman has somewhat suspected it for a while – even if she didn’t want to admit it to herself.
While you should lean towards trusting your gut, by no means is it going to be 100% right all of the time. Nobody’s perfect and we’re all susceptible to making mistakes, particularly if you’ve been cheated on before. If you have a history with infidelity, be aware of the fact that you could be looking at things from a slightly warped perspective. That’s only natural when you’ve been hurt before or are prone to insecurity.
Be as objective as you can as you look at your relationship. Considering how you would advise a friend in your position can be a helpful exercise in setting aside your own bias and tendencies.
And to help you gain more clarity here’s a list of things pretty much all men do if they’re cheating.
- You catch him lying.
- His behavior becomes unpredictable.
- His appearance changes.
- He stops telling you he loves you.
- He’s secretive about his finances.
- He avoids intimacy with you.
- He still has an online dating profile up.
- He’s hot and cold with you.
- He constantly compliments you.
- You smell another woman on him.
- He starts fights with you.
- He pulls back.
- He gets defensive if you ask him about it.
- You sense it.
I read a story the other day on Facebook that said something like 50 signs your boyfriend is cheating on you. You don’t need 50 signs. A girl knows, she can sense it. I mean if you catch him lying it’s pretty obvious, but you know by other more subtle ways too like how he avoids you. He changes when he cheats. He isn’t the same guy he was before and that’s really how you find out. Yeah, some things like the way he starts dressing better or wearing a new cologne is a good sign, but if you really pay attention, you would know long before he starts wearing experience boxers.
My boyfriend and I have the “find my friends” feature activated on our phones. It’s not because I don’t trust him or he doesn’t trust me but for safety reasons. If he knows I’m supposed to be at home at 6 and suddenly I’m not there, he can just pull up his phone and be like oh hey, she stopped at the grocery store on the way home. It’s a peace of mind kind of thing. However, if he didn’t have that feature turned on, don’t think for a second I would believe he wasn’t cheating on me.
If you have nothing to hide, why not turn on the find my friends feature on your phone?
