8 Ways to Tell You are Being Cheated on and not Just Being Paranoid

Sometimes we let our insecurities get the best of us. Sometimes your partner is actually cheating on you. It can be hard at times to figure out which situation is happening. Especially when you truly love someone.

It’s important to give people the benefit of the doubt. Unless you have actual proof that someone is cheating on you, you should keep it to yourself. You don’t want to be that crazy partner that keeps blaming your partner of cheating, when you are the one that is insecure. On the other side, intuition is a powerful thing, so brush up on your investigation skills, and figure out if you really have to worry.

Disappearing for hours

Does your partner disappear for hours and have some lame excuse as to where they were? Probably not a good sign. We all have our own lives, and your partner shouldn’t have to know where you are 24/7, but if you partner leaves for hours and it constantly occurs, you have to ask yourself where they are going.

Hiding their phone

You shouldn’t be snooping around in their phone, but you shouldn’t want to if you trust them. There is a reason why they never let you touch their phone or why they keep it guarded like it’s their precious baby.

You spend less time together

If you feel like your partner is spending less and less time with you, and they have no reason as to why, this can be a bad sign. It can be hard to balance your love life when you are involved with multiple people. If you feel like your partner is shifting their attention and spending less time with you, they might be cheating.

They’ve been spending more time with ‘friends’

Does your partner suddenly have new friends that you don’t know? That’s a problem. Your partner should be open with you, if they aren’t introducing you to these people or they are brushing you off to hang out with other people, you should question who these people are.

They get angry when you confront them

When people know they are doing something wrong and are feeling guilty about it, they tend to react with anger. If you confront your partner and they make you feel like you are crazy then you should question their loyalty. Even if they aren’t cheating on you, they are an asshole for making you feel insecure about your feelings.

They suddenly care less

If your partner all of a sudden doesn’t care about your relationship and your feelings, this can be a sign of cheating. When they have someone else in their life, they focus less on you. If your partner isn’t there for your feelings or your life in general, then it’s time to move on.

You catch them in lies

If you are constantly catching them in lies, about who they are with or what they are doing, this is a bad sign. If your partner has nothing to hide then they shouldn’t be lying to you about what is going on in your life.

You feel it in your gut

When it comes down to it, your intuition is usually right. I’m not saying it’s 100%, because our insecurities can come into the equation often, but if you constantly feel this way you have to ask yourself why. Your partner might be cheating on you, and you need to investigate this.
