Everyone knows that working late and lipstick stains are tell-tale signs that their partner is cheating, but not everyone notices these subtle signs that their husband or boyfriend is cheating on them.
Watch out for 10 of these signs in your relationship:
1. He’s extra frisky
Eventually, cheaters become uninterested in having sex with the person they’re actually in a relationship with. But before that, they get extra interested in sex.
2. His tone of voice changes
When he gets on the phone, does he talk in a slightly higher pitched tone of voice? Studies show that when men speak to someone they’re romantically interested in, they slightly raise the tone of their voice.
3. You feel it in your gut
If you feel like he’s cheating, chances are, he is. A university study discovered that people could guess which people were cheaters just from observing them. Even if you can’t pinpoint any exact evidence, you may want to listen to your gut.
4. He accuses you of cheating
He thinks that if he can cheat and hide it, you of course could be cheating and hiding it just as easily.
5. He avoids being alone with you
If he knows he’s done something wrong, being alone with you can make him uncomfortable. If he avoids being in the same room alone with you, it may be a sign that he’s having an affair.
6. He explains too much
If he’s hiding something, he already has all of the details of his cover-up figured out in his mind so when you ask what’s up, every one of these details probably pours right out. His response may even sound rehearsed, because it has been.
7. He takes his phone to the bathroom
Maybe he just wants to scroll through Facebook while doing his business (who doesn’t?) but maybe he just doesn’t want his phone out in the open where it can give him away. Something that is even more telling is putting his phone on airplane mode, when he’s not on an airplane.
8. He deletes text messages
Most people don’t delete their text messages these days. If your husband is doing that (especially if he’s picking and choosing which ones to keep) he definitely is hiding something from you.
9. He has new moves in the bedroom
If he suddenly has new moves up his sleeve that you’ve never seen before, you might be wondering where he learned them. And you should wonder.
10. He cares more about his appearance
If he’s suddenly concerned about shaving patches of hair from his back or spending extra time lifting weights at the gym, it could also indicate that he’s having an affair.
