Cheating is something that seems to take us women by surprise, but you can be more vigilant and notice signs that it could be happening to you. Keep your eyes open and watch your boyfriend’s behavior.
These are 35 signs that he’s probably cheating:
#1. Not ready: if he tells you early on that he’s not looking for a relationship, he’s very likely to cheat if you get into one with him!
#2. Airplane phone: why else would your guy put his phone on airplane mode other than to avoid you seeing his notifications?
#3. Phone attachment: if he takes his phone everywhere he goes, even to get something from the other room or to pee, then you have something to worry about.
#4. No posts: if you’re absent from his social media presence, it probably means that he wants to keep you a secret for some reason.
#5. Lady friends: if he has a lot of female friends that you haven’t met, you should be worried.
#6. Where’s Waldo?: if you find yourself unable to reach him frequently, ask yourself why he would be avoiding you.
#7. Satisfaction only: he keeps you hooked, but doesn’t give you more, which could mean that his attention is split between you and someone else.
#8. No meetings: if you don’t see your guy in person on a regular basis, chances are he’s meeting up with another.
#9. Manipulation: instead of acknowledging issues you bring up to him, he makes you feel like everything's your fault.
#10. What sex life?: when the sex diminishes, it’s a good sign that he is getting his fix from another place.
#11. Lack of communication: he doesn’t make an effort to communicate with you clearly and regularly like he used to.
#12. Cancels on you: what reason would he have to cancel on the person who is supposed to be his partner?
#13. Can’t commit to plans: if your boyfriend tells you he can’t make plans with you for the weekend, you clearly are not a priority for him.
#14. Lies: if you catch him in lies, don’t forget them, and expect more.
#15. Sexy social media: if he follows a lot of sexy women, you already know he’s spending time with his eyes and mind elsewhere.
#16. Unknown numbers: does he have a lot of unnamed contacts in his phone? Ask yourself why these numbers aren’t marked like others.
#17. No family connection: when the relationship has lasted long and you still haven’t met his family, you need to wonder why he doesn’t want his two worlds to collide.
#18. Strange texts: if you see concerning text messages, don’t let him try to explain them away.
#19. Open for business: don’t ignore a sign like an active Tinder account. Things are what they seem sometimes.
#20. Panicky: check to see how he reacts when you pick up and look in his phone. If he panics, it means he’s hiding something.
#21. Nowhere to be found: if he removed you from his lock screen or profile picture, he might be trying to keep you a secret from someone else.
#22. Fighting questions: if any questions you ask him lead to a fight, then he is trying to deflect from the topic at hand.
#23. Active but unavailable: if you see him online, but he doesn’t answer you, he could be talking to another woman.
#24. Grooming: when he starts changing the way he dresses or does his hair when he goes out without you, it could be a sign of duplicity.
#25. Improved hygiene: brushing his teeth more or wearing nicer smelling cologne could be good for you, but if the habit starts suddenly, consider the reasoning.
#26. Gone: his schedule has gotten a lot busier and he’s out during the day and night without much explanation. That’s fishy.
#27. Stand still: when you feel like you haven’t done anything new with your boyfriend or grown lately, it could mean that he’s lost interest in putting energy into your bond.
#28. Secrecy: do the people in his life know you exist? Why not?
#29. Outbursts: random explosions of anger could be a sign that he is overwhelmed with trying to balance two opposing lives.
#30. Wants privacy: if you’ve always had an open relationship and suddenly he wants a lot more privacy and time to himself, something else could be going on.
#31. Sex signs: you’re not going crazy if you notice him smelling like different perfume or realize he’s using new moves in bed.
#32. Money hole: you notice that his money is being spent in large amounts, but realize it’s not going towards anything having to do with your relationship.
#33. Not presence: if he’s emotionally checked out during his time with you, it definitely means his interest has gone somewhere else.
#34. Mentions others: if he starts talking about other women, see it for what it is.
#35. Extreme attitude: showing extreme amounts of affection or anger is a clear sign that he is feeling differently about you.
Keep your mind with you so that you can notice any of these signs and get yourself away from a cheating situation.
