It can be an emotionally devastating experience when you first suspect that your spouse or partner is cheating on you. However, the peace of mind that you will ultimately get from the truth far outweighs the emotional torture from thinking of them possibly being with someone else. While it is never smart to jump to conclusions, and someone that you’ve been with for a long time usually deserves the benefit of the doubt, here are the warning signs of infidelity to help you make a more informed decision.
New habits with physical appearance
As we begin to get more comfortable with each other, it is common for people to stop putting on their Sunday best when meeting. As we get into the more serious phases of a relationship, wearing nice clothes around the home can almost seem like a formality. If you notice that they start to want to look better, dress up, and are putting in a lot of effort to look their best when going out without you, then it could be a sign that they are trying to impress someone new. In fact, we’d be very wary. While it is possible that they are trying to make changes for personal reasons, that isn’t always the case.
Secretive internet and phone usage
Being together comes with a certain level of trust. Mingling in every little thing that your partner does isn’t a good way to keep them. However, if you notice that they are starting to keep their internet usage and emails more secretive, or if they hide their phone from you all of the time, this is a dead giveaway that they are hiding something more sinister from you.
Every relationship goes through phases, and the longer that you spend together the more that it is going to change. But if you start to notice different changes, ones where your partner becomes distant, disinterested, overly combative with you or flirtatious with others, then this might be due to them having someone new in their lives. The attention they get from their new lover means that they aren’t as emotionally invested in you, and this means they will treat you differently.
