You have this vibe that something is just off. You don’t know what it is, but something tells you that your man is secretly with another woman. He is spending more and more time at work. He starts taking phone calls in other rooms… and then the suspicion smacks you in the face
“Is he cheating on me?”
The question hits your chest like a lead weight. You love him and you really thought he loved you! Why would he suddenly start cheating on you? Is he really seeing someone else?
Maybe there are clues or maybe it’s just a nagging, gut instinct. You might try not to think about it because every time it crosses your mind, it makes you feel sick. Well, here are 6 signs that will help you know if he is really cheating on you:
1. He is using his phone a lot more (and not for you)
If he suddenly starts texting more often, but he still takes forever to reply to you… that may be a sign that he’s cheating.
2. He suddenly cares about his hygiene
You’ve known him long enough to know how he typically cares for himself. If he takes a sudden interest in how he looks, his physical health, and even starts showering more, who is he trying to impress?
3. He goes out more
Whether he’s going out “with friends” or has something come up with family, this could be a red flag that he’s really seeing someone else.
4. He keeps working late
Sudden work emergency? Big project that he didn’t tell you about in advance? If he starts working overtime and is hours on sporadic days of the week working late, he might not actually be working…
5. He avoids getting close to you
If you notice that your guy suddenly avoids intimacy with you (or stops entirely), that’s a huge red flag. Some men who fear intimacy will cheat to feel like they still have power over their sex life, and some men cheat simply because they want someone “young and new”.
6. He follows a lot of sexy women on social media
Have you noticed him “liking” a lot of sexy pictures on his Facebook? What about who he watches on Instagram? If they’re mostly hot young women, you can probably guess what’s on his mind…
