Signs of a Cheater

"I'm not in love with you anymore."

If you hear these words, a big warning bell should go off. This is one of the most consistent things a cheating spouse will say.

“I need some space to figure my feelings for you.”

When partners request more space, time alone or away from the family, this is a sign! They may say it is due to confusion over their feelings or stress at work.  There can be someone else who they are spending their time with instead of you. Warning Sign!   

Secretive phone calls and more time spent on their cell phone

Affairs occur primarily via the phone, especially smart phones, via text, email or instant messaging apps.  If you find your spouse hanging up suddenly when you enter the room or erasing the history on the cell phone and being defensive when asked, Be alarmed! 

Regular work habits change

Working late, going to work at odd hours, going out after work or, putting in more time than is normal on work related issues can be indications that a spouse is cheating.

"We are just friends."

This is also another very predictable statement that will come from a cheating spouse. If your spouse is spending more time with this new “friend” then it might be more than mere friendship.  It’s a big warning sign and one you should take seriously.

Behaviour that just doesn’t add up

Not being where he/she was expected to be. Missing time they can’t explain. Money that isn’t accounted for.  Being caught in little lies about the details of the day.  Big warning sign!

A sudden need for privacy.

If sudden changes become private; pay attention! Passwords on computers might be changed, cell phone & credit card bills may be hidden.  If you confront your partner, they will accuse you of snooping or trying to control your life.  Big warning sign!


Your own fears and suspicions

If your overcome by this feeling  that something is wrong with your partner, don’t ignore this feeling.  Trust your gut instinct.  Get the answers you need and get a peace of mind by knowing the truth. Take action!  

A change in appearance.

A cheating spouse has taken a sudden interest in his or her appearance – new and different types of clothing, hairstyle or weight loss.  A cheating spouse has started to use or has changed his or her perfume/after shave.  Big Warning sign!
