Is your partner behaving odd lately? Or perhaps the normal flow of your relationship has been off track recently. Well, your gut instincts may be right.
When you’re in a committed relationship, nothing can pull the rug out from under you like the betrayal of a loved one. It can affect your emotional state of mind. If you have a hunch that your partner may be cheating, here is how you can follow the trail to help you catch a cheating partner.
Has your partner suddenly started to take more care with their appearance? If they are more concerned with how they look and what they wear, or even a new fragrance. It might be to attract or keep the attention of someone else. Again, none of this means that your partner is cheating. But, if these changes coupled with other unusual behavior, then this could be a red flag.
Is your partner suddenly more concerned about privacy when they’re on the phone or computer? If they used to openly carry on conversations, but now they have to leave the room when they talk on the phone. Or if you are not allowed to follow them on their social media accounts. That could be a sign that they are saying something they don’t want you to hear.
In a relationship, sexual appetites can vary, and that is perfectly normal. You don’t want to accuse them of cheating because there is no intimacy. Take everything into consideration, such as financial, job, and family stress. Many times, stress will play a factor to decreased interest in sex. If stress is not an issue, and your partner seems uninterested in sex all of a sudden. That could be that he is intimate with someone else.
Is your partner suddenly a lot more attentive to you? Do they send you cards and buy you gifts or flowers for no clear reason? If this isn’t their normal, it’s likely that they’re doing this because they have a guilty conscience.
Cheating partners are often guilt-giving gifts to their partners. They do this to make themselves feel better about their infidelity. Using a form of emotional manipulation to pacify their partner, they try to keep the other person happy so that they don't find out about what is going on behind their back.
Does your partner suddenly start using different words or phrases? Are they suddenly talking about other types of music or books that they’ve never shown an interest in before? If this happens ask them where they’ve heard of these new things. If they’ve picked them up innocently from a friend, they’ll tell you. If, on the other hand, they say they’ve just heard it ‘somewhere’ or give you some other vague answer you are probably smart to be a little suspicious.
While none of these signs make it certain that your partner is cheating. However, they might be a warning that you should pay more attention to your partner.
