If your partner is extremely possessive about his or her phone and won’t let it alone even for a millisecond there might be something going on in their mind. While many people do keep their mobile phones with them all the time if your partner is uncomfortable even if you just ask for it, you might consider confronting them about it.

They never tell you about their whereabouts

If your partner doesn’t answer your calls when away or always hides his or her whereabouts, there are chances he might be seeing someone else. Once in a while doing this is somewhat acceptable but if it’s a routine there’s something fishy going on for sure.

You often catch them lying

If your partner has, all of a sudden started lying about little things and is hiding a lot from you, you know that something isn’t right. Lying is, often, a result of cheating and if your partner rarely accepts his or lies, you may want to give your relationship a second thought.

They get defensive

If your partner has started getting defensive whenever you are asking them questions and are not ready to give direct answers, it’s another sign of cheating. A sudden change in behavior is, often, characterized by something and in this case, it can be cheating.

They keep on asking you if you think they are a cheater

One of the biggest signs of a cheating partner is when he or she repeatedly asks you if you think are a cheater in response to any question. This is called playing the victim game. So, instead of feeling bad for doubting them, consider seeking a proper answer to your questions and don’t get carried away by their comebacks.

They avoid hanging out with you

If your frequent movie dates have now become once in a few months thing without any proper explanation to it, you may want to enquire about your partner’s loyalty. Ask them upfront or try other methods but seek an answer. If you know your partner has completely stopped hanging out with you, it’s time for you to move out.
