How To Be Absolutely Positively Sure He’s Cheating
Even though guys try to be sneaky about it, there are some definite signs that he may be cheating on you with someone else. It’s never good to jump to conclusions, but if the red flags are there, you’ll want to start taking them into consideration and deciding where to go with your relationship. Here are 15 signs that he’s probably cheating on you.
He safeguards his cell phone
In a relationship, being open and honest about everything is important. When a guy has something to hide, one of the first things he’ll begin to safeguard is his cell phone. When he has a text or phone call, he avoids letting you hear or see anything on it, and now his phone randomly has a password attached to it.
He’s cheated before
No matter if he’s cheated on you or an ex-girlfriend from the past, that cliche phrase “once a cheater, always a cheater” still applies. When a guy is capable of cheating on one girl, he’s capable of doing it again. Obviously he’s able to put himself in a mindset where his significant other doesn’t matter. Cheaters are bound to cheat again.
He’s on the computer a lot more
Guys nowadays tend to take their cheating habits online. They start with flirty messages and texts and usually end up sharing pictures, sexting, and even meeting up. If your guy has been glued to the computer suddenly, someone on that screen may have his attention. Check the computer’s history and keep an eye out for dating websites.
He’s created a new email address
If there is one telltale sign that a guy is cheating on you, this it is. When a guy wants to hide his online cheating, he will create a new email account in hopes that it remains secret and hidden from you. Usually when a man creates a new email address and still uses his old one, he’s hiding something.
He’s become disconnected
When a guy becomes disconnected from you and the relationship, there’s definitely something wrong. He is drawing away from you for some reason and may be doing so because he wants out because there is someone else on the side. Emotional disconnect is a huge sign that your guy may be cheating.
There’s physical evidence
You found a female’s hairband in his car that definitely doesn’t belong to you. He came home smelling like woman’s perfume. He has some makeup smudged on his shirt. No matter what it is, when physical evidence comes into the equation, there’s no doubting that something is going on.
You’ve seen provocative texts on his phone
You don’t have to be a serial snooper to catch your guy in the act. If you’ve somehow stumbled upon or purposefully looked for signs of him straying on his phone, make note of it, and ask him about it. If he has a reasonable explanation, let it go, but keep an eye on things. If he’s dancing around his words with outlandish excuses, he’s probably cheating.
He’s never available
You two used to spend a lot of time together but now he’s become unavailable. Work has become overly busy randomly or he now has all sorts of other things to do instead of spending time with you. He could just be spending time with another girl.
You’ve caught him in lies
Naturally, when you catch someone lying to you, you lose some trust in them, even if you try your hardest to practice forgiveness. And while you may forgive, don’t forget. If you notice a trend with your guy lying to you about certain things, he may be hiding something bigger than you think.
Your sex life is on the decline
For months now, the sex life between you two has been amazing. It happened often and sometimes spontaneously, but now it’s the complete opposite. If a guy is cheating on you, it’s likely that he’s either no longer interested in you, or is getting his fix from someone else.
He’s going out solo a lot more
Even though the weekends used to be your time together, it’s now become nights when he goes out and hits up the bars with the guys, or so he tells you. If your man out of the blue decides to spend more nights out on the town, he may be spending time with a new girl he’s met. This is especially true if he all but begs you not to go out with him, or makes excuses why you shouldn’t.
He talks about a new woman
Of course when a guy talks about or mentions a woman’s name, you’re bound to get worried. But, it only becomes a problem when he talks a lot about this girl. He randomly speaks her name and seems really enthusiastic when talking about her. Though he may say she’s a good friend or a close co-worker, she’s probably more than that.
He’s leaving work early or staying late
Usually your guy has normal 9-5 hours, but recently he’s been going in earlier or working later. Of course, he has excuses, and while some of them may be valid, if his work schedule change becomes sporadic but consistent, he may be messing around with a co-worker. Or he could be going elsewhere while telling you he’s at work.
Your intuition tells you he is
When you start thinking a guy is cheating, usually women get those feelings for a good reason. Clearly he’s done enough or something wrong that now has you doubting his sincerity to you. The second you start getting thoughts that he may be cheating, you’re more than likely thinking right. However, make sure you aren’t just overreacting.
His friends are acting strange towards you
If you’re ever around your guy’s friends and he is seeing someone on the side, you may notice that his friends start acting a bit awkwardly towards you. While they don’t want to spill the beans, they know what’s going on, and they feel guilty. This may cause some of them to become distant and just different when around you.
