How To Tell If Your Boyfriend, Fiance Or Husband is Cheating On You

We all know the old cliches the lipstick on his collar, the smell of slight foreign perfume that you know very well is not your own, always 'working late' an unexplained receipt for dinner and a movie etc. TV and movies have really taught most of us that such discoveries are the only sure sign that a partner is being unfaithful.

Unfortunately if you've ever been a victim of infidelity, you know that it has the ability to break the bond you once had and the reality is the signs of an unfaithful partner can be a bit more complicated and not as straightforward and obvious. To learn more about how to tell if your boyfriend or partner is cheating on you, keep reading on for some of the things you need to be on the lookout for.

The following are the most common indicators of infidelity:

  • Trust your gut! It is hard to just jump out and give a clear label to what infidelity should look like. More often than not a woman needs to trust her own simple gut feeling. If you become suspicious of your partner's behavior and suspect that he might be unfaithful, then you need to start picking up on the subtle and telling changes in his behavior pattern as they can indicate something is sure wrong.
  • He may have become distant towards you and has started pulling away from the relationship.
  • He has changed his spending habits and you've discovered suspicious transactions on his credit card such as expensive dinners, lingerie, unusual purchases, clothing etc.
  • Intimacy has changed for you as he has become hesitant and less willing to make love and just wants to sleep immediately he gets in bed.
  • If he has changed his habits suddenly and is staying to work later than usual at the office, going out late at night to ''work'', or he has started working out more often than usual or is a guy who never works out but suddenly he has started! This can be a definite red flag.
  • He has become very private suddenly: His passwords have changed, he has restricted access to his laptop/ computer that you once shared or has created a new account for you and his needs a password to access.

The above are some of the signs you need to look out for if you suspect that your boyfriend might be cheating on you. However, it is very important that you tread carefully and please know that just because your boyfriend is exhibiting one, two or more of these signs, it is not an ironclad indicator that he is for sure being unfaithful. Before you confront him, make sure that your evidence is present to support your case.

It is also important to know that in the case of a cheating boyfriend, you won't always see the signs. Each and every year, women around the world are blindsided by their partner's unfaithfulness and caught completely by surprise. It is not your fault for missing the signs that you know you should have seen. Truth is, when you fully love another person, you do not expect them to hurt you or be unfaithful towards you because you have grown to fully trust them, hence why infidelity can also be difficult to spot until things have progressed to irreparable lengths.

If you've been cheated on more than once, then perhaps it is time to move on and find somebody who really loves you and knows that it is not worth it for them to lose you by hurting you in such a deep and betraying way.

Sometimes women who go back to a cheating partner may be suffering from low self esteem. When you believe that your worth is less, you will accept less. It is harsh, but also very true. It may sound cliche, but it is very important to learn to love yourself before you can allow another person to love you. When you love and appreciate yourself as a human being, chances are you are more likely to seek out a mate who will love and respect you just as you do yourself.
