3 Signs He’s Cheating On You

You know your partner- his schedule, mood and personality. Suddenly he’s acting different, and maybe a little defensive. “Is there another woman?’ You wonder, ‘or is he just going through a life transition? Here are three signs that your partner may be cheating on you:

1. His schedule suddenly changes. If he stays at the office extra late or takes off on the weekend to run cryptic errands, he may have a secret life. And if he’s defensive or full of long-winded excuses when you ask about this new schedule, take note.

2. He’s protective of his technology.  Pay attention to how he acts when you’re near his computer or phone. Does he quickly power off, close windows and act skittish? He may be hiding something.

3. You have a gut feeling that something is off. Pay attention. Your gut will tell you more than he will. There may be a reason you’re questioning where you stand.

If you’ve checked off ‘all of the above’ it may be worth telling your partner that you’re concerned. While you may not hear what you want to hear; at least you can take a step towards respecting your relationship and more importantly, yourself.
