Let’s be straightforward – it’s quite common for people to have affairs, even after getting married. And it’s not just men; women can also get involved in extramarital relationships, even if they’re married. Despite the rising number of affairs in marriages, many of us still struggle to figure out if our partners are involved in one or not.
There are clear signs that your partner might be having an affair, but you might not know about them unless you look for them. Don’t worry, this article will help you. You wouldn’t want to be fooled by the person you love. If something strange is happening, it’s important to know about it.
If you notice any of these 6 signs in your partner, it’s a good idea to talk to them and sort things out.
1. They Take Longer to Call or Text You Back
If they’re taking a super long time to reply to your texts or call you back, they might be cheating. When you were dating, you got used to how quickly they’d respond. But if that suddenly changes and they’re waiting hours to reply, it could raise suspicions. It usually doesn’t take too long to answer a text, and even if they’re busy, it shouldn’t happen all the time. If they keep replying late, again and again, it’s a sign something might be up.
2. They Come Home Late From Work
This might sound like a common and dramatic sign, but people often use excuses like “There’s a lot of work today” or “I might have to stay overnight” when they want to do something wrong secretly. It’s an old trick, and though it’s silly, it could be a signal for you to take charge and find out what’s going on – especially if it’s happening frequently. If your partner is cheating and spending time with someone else, they probably know you won’t question their office hours or call their boss to check.
3. They Take a Bath As Soon As They Get Home
If your partner starts taking a shower immediately after coming back from work or somewhere else, it could be due to spending time with someone new. This sign might not be very common, but if you see them becoming shower-obsessed, it could mean they’re trying to wash off the scent of the person they were with.
4. They Hide Their Cellphone
Your partner’s phone can be important if you’re suspecting cheating. They might get really protective of it, always carrying it and putting it face down when you’re around. They could even delete messages and contacts to hide things. If they use their phone more than talking to you, they might be focused on someone else.
5. They Avoid Eye-Contact
If your partner is cheating, they might not want to look you in the eyes. Our eyes can show a lot about how we feel. When you look at someone’s eyes, you can kind of sense what’s going on inside them. If they’re guilty, a cheating partner might avoid eye contact because they don’t want you to see what they’re really feeling.
6. They Pay More Attention to Self-Grooming
If your partner usually doesn’t bother much about looking good, but now they’re paying extra attention to their appearance, they might be trying to impress someone else, not just you. Taking care of how you look is normal, but if they used to be okay with simple clothes but now dress up a lot before going out, it could raise questions. It’s not just about outfits; it could be anything new they’re doing that they didn’t before, like using deodorant or spending more time on their hair.
