Have you been wondering if your man has been cheating on you? In monogamous relationships, cheating is one of the top issues that come up time and time again, especially when these warning signs start showing up:
1. Phone issues:
Your man freaks out whenever you touch, grab, look at, or go near his phone. If he takes his phone with him every time he has to go to the bathroom, it isn’t because he’s playing Candy Crush. He’s probably planning on crushing on somebody else’s candy.
2. Breaking plans:
When he continuously breaks previously made plans, cancels dates at the last minute, or says something has suddenly come up, there’s a reason. He obviously know you had plans, but he chose someone else over you.
3. Clothing optional:
He always wears your favourite t-shirt, but suddenly you haven’t seen it on him or round your house, anywhere. He probably left it in some bitches house. If you ask him about it, he get’s upset and says “I don’t know”, all defensively. Newsflash: cheaters always lie.
When you call him out on doing something and he responds overly defensive and tries to turn it around on you, then he’s obviously hiding something.
5. You better work, bitch:
When he suddenly has to start to work late, at odd hours, or strangely has to travel for work on weekends, then something suspicious is going on. He’s not working.
6. Not the same:
All those things that he used to find adorable about you are just not there anymore. In fact, they irritate and annoy him. You aren’t his cute and sexy baby anymore. It’s because you aren’t the one he’s thinking about and he would rather be somewhere else, probably with the person he’s cheating on you with.
7. You’ve got mail:
Facebook messages, emails, and text messages of dick pics from random guys doesn’t prove that he’s cheating, but he’s definitely considering it. And given the right opportunity, he probably will.
8. I love you:
Have you forgotten what it sounds like to hear the words, “I love you”? It hurts a bit, doesn’t it? He hasn’t bothered to remind you how much you mean to him because he’s already checked out and thinking of someone else. He’s pre-occupied thinking about the next time he’s meeting up with his other man.
If these warning signs sound familiar to you, then it’s probably time to make dramatic changes to your relationship, like having an open relationship, or calling it quits. You can do better.
