Relationship: Is my partner cheating on me? These signs could give it away

At the dinner table in the evening, the partner picks up the cell phone and keeps grinning at the display. But if you then get up, walk past him or her and collect the plate to take it to the kitchen, he or she abruptly turns away or puts the smartphone face down on the table in no time at all. A strange, distrustful gut feeling is spreading and in fact you are often right with such a recurring gut feeling about cheating. There are signs that can expose a cheater.

Changes in behaviorAn indicator of cheating can be a change in the partner's behavior. Is he or she suddenly prone to increased aggression? If the other person is more nervous than usual or talks much less about their everyday life, this could be a clue. Someone might not want to babble on. Some people are so nervous, afraid of being exposed, that they're just toxic. Persistent aggression can also lead to the betrayed saying at some point that the relationship is over. An advantage for the cheater, the decision "Do I go or do I stay?" was taken from him. However, this phenomenon also occurs somewhat less frequently in the other direction. The partner is suddenly more attentive, generous and loving because he thinks that cheating can never come out like that.

Visual changes. Suddenly your partner runs to sport with a high level of motivation, misses out on a new hairstyle or completely changes your look. Material things that may never have been important before become a priority, such as a new car, a new watch or a new smartphone. Fundamental changes in behavior that are suddenly carried out very ambitiously can be an indication that there is someone else in life you want to please or impress.

New time rhythmIn a relationship you usually have quite ingrained, time-related processes. If there are fundamental changes here, which may take place mainly in the evening or at night, this could also be an indication of infidelity. For example, if someone suddenly takes a shower more often in the evening hours, leaves the house again and, above all, if a certain regularity can be seen in this. But also when the job that you have been doing for a long time, out of nowhere, requires frequent and persistent overtime.

The smartphone As already mentioned, communication with the affair often takes place via the smartphone. Most of the time, cheaters don't take their eyes off their cell phones, they even take them to the toilet or turn around on the way there if they have left them. If you decide to check your partner's phone at night, you'll often find that it's turned off or on airplane mode or do not disturb, which it might never have been on so the messages don't get caught appear on the display.
