When you think you are in a secure and settled relationship, one of the worst things that can happen is for you to discover that your partner may be cheating on you. With so many temptations including social media sites, many people fall victim to infidelity from their partner and this can be devastating and soul destroying.
Of course, you may be in a situation where you simply do not know one way or another whether your partner is up to no good. You may have your suspicions but no conclusive evidence, which can sometimes be even worse than knowing that they are cheating or have cheated on you. This is why you have to put in some effort to try and get a better idea of where you stand before you throw the towel in or cause relationship problems by making unfounded accusations.
Some of the things that may help
There are a number of things that may help you to get clarification with regards to whether or not your partner is cheating. If you find that your partner has been receiving a lot of calls – a lot more than usual – and they sneak off with the phone to take the calls, you can go online to get some information. These days, you can find out all sorts of information including the ability to find sex offenders online. Well, you can also access reverse phone number sites that can identify where and who calls are coming from.
You also need to take note of whether your partner has suddenly developed a very busy social life and is going out a lot without you. They may tell you that they are going out with friends but if this suddenly starts, you have to question why your partner’s friends have suddenly started going out so much. Also, if you know the friends in question, you could even ask them something about the night out to see if they know what you are talking about. If they don’t, your partner has obviously lied and did not go out with them but with someone else.
Another thing you should pay attention to is the habits of your partner. For example, have they suddenly started taking unusual pride in their appearance and the way they look and smell? Are they spending a lot more time at work on a regular basis when they never used to do that before? Do they come back home smelling curiously of a different fragrance that you do not recognize? All of these could be signs that you are being cheated on by your partner.
Some people also lose interest in being romantic with their partner when they are having an affair or even if they have had an affair. With the latter, it is often the guilt of having had the affair that makes them more distant. With the former it is a combination of guilt and the fact that they are being intimate with someone else.
