While many couples are very secure in their relationships, there are others that live in constant fear of their partner cheating on them. In today’s world of digital technology and social media flirting, infidelity has become easier than ever for those who decide to cheat. In fact, many relationships have broken down as a result of social media, which is why it has become one of the key indicators that your partner may be cheating.

Of course, the fact that your partner uses social media does not mean they are cheating. It is more the way they use it and whether they tend to be secretive. This is just one of a number of indicators that your partner may be seeing someone else, or at least flirting with someone else. In this article, we will look at some of the signs that could indicate your partner is up to something.

Three Signs to Look Out For

You do need to bear in mind that these indicators do not mean your partner is definitely cheating. However, if you already suspect something may be going on, you may want to look out for these signs.

The first sign is if your partner starts receiving a lot of calls more frequently than they used to. If you know who it is on the phone, that’s fine. However, if your partner takes the call out of the room or out of earshot on purpose, this could be a reason to worry. Of course, you can check on who has been calling. For instance, there are online tools that enable you to do everything from looking at criminal records online to running a reverse phone lookup on unknown phone numbers. Such tools can help you to identify who has been calling.

Another sign to look for is whether your partner acts suspiciously when using social media sites. Many people who are cheating will use private messaging on Facebook to contact the other person. So, if your partner suddenly starts using social media out of your line of sight or closing the laptop when you come into the room, you may have reason to be suspicious. Also, you may find that your partner suddenly changes their password (and details if you were aware of them) in order to ensure you cannot access their account any longer.

Finally, you should look out for a change in habits and appearance with your partner. Some people who are cheating may start making far more of an effort when they go out (without you). In addition, they may start being less interested in intimacy or cuddles with you for no apparent reason. Again, this is not a guarantee that they are cheating, but it may be a sign.

So, if you want to determine whether or not your partner is likely to be cheating on you, make sure you look out for some of these tell-tale signs. They could help you to find out one way or another if something is going on.
