Signs that a guy is going to cheat on you are usually fairly obvious, but there are cases where women have been duped without even knowing it. Men can be masters of deception but when you start to put everything together, the fact that they are not happy or looking outside of the relationship for companionship can strike you like a lightning bolt. If you’re worried that your boyfriend or husband is cheating on you or is about to, there are a few telltale signs to look out for.
Here are 5 of the most common signs that he may be cheating.
1. He Works Late A Lot
Sure, even McDonalds has a night crew, but if your boyfriend or husband has what appears to be a 9-5 job and he’s working late a lot, you should have your guard up. The thing about working late and cheating is that his new schedule will probably appear when you start having problems between the two of you. Don’t jump to conclusions if he says he’s working late and your relationship is a little rocky. He might just be spending time by himself because he’s avoiding the issues in your relationship. If he comes home smelling like perfume or you find condom wrappers in his suit jacket, it’s time to have a talk.
2. You Don’t Have Sex Anymore
If you find that your guy is giving you excuses to not have sex there is a major issue. Men love having sex with their girlfriends and wives so if you’re throwing yourself at him and he’s resisting you need to be on the lookout. The most common reason that a guy doesn’t want to have sex with his wife or girlfriend is that he’s getting it somewhere else. There are a few things that occur when a guy is cheating. He might not want to have sex with you because of the guilt of cheating. Or he might actually not want to have sex with you because he feels like it would be cheating on his new girl. Either way, he’s in the wrong and you should look for other signs that he’s cheating.
3. His Stories Don’t Match Up
Has your guy ever come home and the reason that he was late didn’t match up to things that you already knew? If this is the case you probably have a cheater on your hands. The thing about cheating is that it’s hard for the guy to put himself somewhere that he wasn’t. When you start to ask questions because you know something that he doesn’t know he will start to get defensive. When a guy goes into defensive mode the argument will shift from where he was to why you’re so interested in where he was. This is a normal reaction and a normal tactic to try to change the subject and juxtapose the blame onto the accuser. Don’t let him do this to you. Stay on the subject and he will eventually cave.
4. He Accuses You Of Cheating
Have you ever heard it takes a thief to know one? Well, the same goes with a cheater. If your guy is accusing you of cheating and there is really basis for it, he’s got something to hide. Because he has engaged in the action of cheating, he knows how to manage time, make stories up and deceive his partner. But the main thing is that he knows what to look out for and every little bit of suspicion is going to come up. This is why he is accusing you. There is also a subconscious want for you to cheat so that doesn’t feel so bad about cheating on you. Don’t put up with his accusations and start to check up on him. If you find out he’s cheating, leave him immediately.
He Threatens To Leave You – A Lot
This is a big one. When a guy threatens to leave you a lot there’s something out there that he knows he can rely on, aka his mistress. A guy that threatens to leave a woman is a guy that is confident that he won’t be alone. If he really cared about you he would try to work on the relationship instead of threatening to leave. If he ever says things like “I could have a new girlfriend tomorrow” you should be extremely careful with him. This is the statement of a cheater and should not be taken lightly.
