10 signs you're being cheated on Thinking your partner might be unfaithful can wreak havoc on relationships. But pretending everythings fine when you just cant shake that nagging suspicion can be just as dangerous. Dont pretend everythings fine. If you suspect your partner is having an affair, look for these telltale signs. Of course, theyre not absolute proof your other halfs playing away but they may indicate something is amiss between the two of you. Leaving the room to make a call Usually your partner is happy gassing on the phone while youre together but if youve noticed he or she leaves the room every time the phone rings then it could be because theres something to hide. Working late If your partners work patterns have changed, it could be down to a new project or heavier workload, but you should also be wary that its not because of the appeal of spending late nights at the office with a favored work colleague or heading out with someone else. Dont jump to conclusions but rather show an interest in what your partners working on to suss out whether the excuses seem realistic. Being vague If your partner is cheating on you then the devil is in the detail. Changing from being open with you to a being difficult to pin down on who he or shes been talking to or going out with and reasons for getting home so late, might mean your partners not be being straight with you. Avoiding future plans Not wanting to commit to anything can be a sign of doubts. If your partners less enthusiastic than usual about a holiday you had in mind, or keeps on trying to put off plans you had together, such as moving house or booking festival tickets, then its worth asking why. Sudden need for privacy Being in a couple brings a certain amount of intimacy and sharing. If you feel your partner is becoming distant from you, either emotionally or physically, then it could be because theres something to hide. Behaviour that doesnt add up Use your intuition. If theres something puzzling you about your partners behaviour then maybe you have good reason to be suspicious. It could be that an excuse for being late doesnt tally with the facts or claiming to be short of money when you know its just been payday, but little inconsistencies tell their own story. Trust yourjudgment and if something makes you uneasy, bite the bullet and ask about it. A change in tastes or opinions One of the joys of being in a couple is discovering new things together and being on the same page. It can be jarring if your partner suddenly develops a passion for activities, foods and TV shows youve never seen and starts mouthing off with opinions youve never heard. If alarm bells are ringing, probe further about where these new found loves and opinion came from, and be on the lookout for clues of a third party. Making more of an effort You might appreciate your partners newfound attention to grooming but did it come out of the blue? In long term relationships, love may indeed be a little blind and a few too many of those cosy meals on the sofa often take their toll on your waistlines. But if your usually lazy partner starts buying new clothes, hitting the gym or booking beauty treatments, it could be to impress someone else. Guilt gifts Be aware of presents bestowed on you for no reason. Yes, it could be that your partner saw that fragrance and thought of you, but it could also be a sign of a guilty conscience. Spending less time with your friends and family If your beloved starts dropping out of plans youve made with your friends or family, and thinking up excuses not to see them, be wary. It could be a sign that youre partner isnt interested in making an effort with people in your life, which is bad enough, but it could also be because seeing the people who love you most only makes the guilt feel worse.
