Knowing about your partner’s previous love affairs can be a bit uncomfortable. But discovering that they have been cheating on you can be heartbreaking. In an ideal world, no one would cheat on their partners, however, in the real world, people screw up. And sometimes even those with high morale make irrational decisions.
There is no reason that could ever justify the act of cheating on one’s partner. Even so, it is better to come out clean and admit to your mistake. But if you suspect something is fishy and your partner isn’t coming clean, there are plenty of ways of knowing the truth. Here are some tips that will help you know if your partner is cheating on you:
1) They seem more distant
Do you feel that your partner seems more distant? Has lack of communication started affecting your relationship? Do you feel that your partner has started ignoring you? If this is indeed the case, it’s time that you have an honest conversation with them. Maybe it’s something work-related or maybe they are cheating on you– either way you need to find out.
2) They aren’t jealous anymore
Remember how your partner used to react when someone checked you out or when a stranger smiled at you at the bar? If your partner doesn’t react in the same way anymore, you need to take a good look at your relationship.
3) They are defensive about other’s affair
You talked about an affair your colleague had with another co-worker with your partner. And instead of supporting your argument, they become defensive? They might be having an affair.
4) They are nervous around you
Cheating on your partner involves a lot of lying and the fear of being caught. Hiding such an important detail from you can make them nervous and anxious around. If this happens often, then you might have a problem.
5) They give you blank stares
If you find that your partner is at a loss for words quite often and even when you innocently inquire about their last visit to their home, there might be trouble in the paradise. They are confused about the lies that they have told you. You will be surprised to know the amount of energy that goes in remembering all those details.

10) They keep backing out of your plans
Do you find yourself consoling you for changed plans? Is your partner ditching all your plans? Has this become a habit? It could be because they have found someone else.
11) Frequent unexplained plans
Is your partner going for sudden unexplained trips frequently? Unless they are a wanderlust who loves to go on a trip alone, this could mean that they are spending time with someone else. Remember the movie– Valentine’s Day?
