One question that many people ask themselves if they believe their partner may be cheating is whether to confront them. It is awful when you have a nagging suspicion that something is going on, but unless you have conclusive evidence, it can be difficult to broach the subject. Even if you do confront them, your partner is likely to deny it, and without proof, there is little to be gained from doing this.
So, what should you do in these circumstances when you have suspicions but are not certain? Well, one of the best things to do is to monitor the situation closely to see if there are any signs that can give you a better idea of whether your suspicions are founded. As our infographic shows, there are plenty of signs to look out for and plenty of ways in which cheating partners get caught out. So before you go steaming in with accusations, it is best to assess the situation and see what you can find out.
Looking Out for Indications of Infidelity
There are a few common signs and traits that may be displayed by partners that are cheating, so it is well worth looking out for these. Some of the key ones are:
A Noticeable Change in Social Media Habits
One of the common signs of cheating is a sudden and noticeable change in social media habits. For instance, many couples look through social media together and even know one another’s passwords. If your partner suddenly stops letting you view their social media with them or changes their password for no apparent reason, it could be that they are hiding something such as private messages. Also, if they tend to now use social media when you are not sitting near to them but switch off as soon as you go over, this could be a sign of something untoward.
Lack of Intimacy with You
Another of the signs that you may notice if your partner is cheating is that there is a sudden lack of intimacy with you. This could even include kisses and cuddles, which some cheating partners cannot bring themselves to do when they are seeing someone else. Of course, there could be other reasons behind a sudden lack of intimacy such as medical issues. However, if you already have suspicions, and your partner then stops being tactile or intimate with you, it may be cause for concern.
Change in Appearance and Grooming
Some people who are cheating may suddenly change their appearance and grooming habits, and this could be another sign that there is something amiss. If they tend to be casual and not particularly well-groomed but they have suddenly started dressing up the nines and making themselves look perfect before going out, you have to ask yourself why the sudden change.
These are just some of the many signs that may be displayed by a partner who is being unfaithful.
