Everyone who reads this has either been cheated on, knows someone who has been cheated on or has suspected that they have been cheated on. There were quite a few people asking on my last relationship post for some advice about cheating. What are the signs? Has it ever happened to you? Well, you asked and now I will share some of my knowledge from first hand experience. In this post I will list the three signs that I noticed when I suspected my girlfriend was cheating on my. These signs are some of the same that others who have been cheated on noticed as well.
As I mentioned above, there were three main signs that lead me to believe that my girlfriend was cheating, which ended up being true. They are as follows:
- He/She seems more distant
- The calls and texts are not as frequent or as long as they used to be
- He/She is always irritated with anything that you are doing
I can say that after I found out that my girlfriend had been cheating on me, I felt absolutely crushed. I think there are stages of recovery and it is perfectly normal to feel angry, sad, lonely, used, abandoned. Just know that you were not the one who cheated or did anything wrong. Although it takes time to heal, you have to move forward. Learning to trust someone new might be hard, but take it slow and you might be surprised to see how well a new relationship can develop!
It just so happens that I caught a quick minute of the Dr. Phil show today and the topic was cheating partners! If you’d like, he has a quiz posted on his website about jealousy and suspecting whether your partner is cheating or not. Check it out here.
I am curious if you agree with these signs? What other signs have you seen? For those of you that have been cheated on, I would like to hear if you were able to forgive them and how you officially found out they were cheating.
If your significant other is showing any of these signs, please do not jump to the conclusion that they are cheating. This is not a full-proof way to tell if your boyfriend/girlfriend is cheating on you. I have never cheated on anyone and am glad that my current girlfriend is someone who I trust with all of my heart. I hope none of you have to go through this and find the one that makes your heart flutter every time you look into her eyes.
