There might be some distrustful times in your relationship when you feel your partner is lying to you about something, but that might not even be true. So, it is always wise to first confirm if there is anything suspicious going on in your relationship or not. Before you doubt, do give it a second thought whether is it even true that your partner is hiding something or not?
But if you are confused as to how to find out if that’s the case, here are some signs to know that your partner is hiding something from you.
1. They get angry or are easily offended
Do you feel that even when you are just trying to have a normal conversation with your partner, they lash out at you out of nowhere? Well, if this doesn’t happen quite often, it might not mean anything, but if it happens almost every now and then, your partner might actually be hiding something from you. A person who is trying to hide something may find lashing out or acting offended as an escape route.
2. They share way too many details
A dishonest or a secretive person is always trying to cover up things. They are subconsciously trying to conceal their deeds by providing more details about other things, and this is something where they can actually be caught. So, if you find your partner burdening you with overly extra details of things, you should look into the matter as they might be hiding something from you. But before you do, do ask yourself if they are always like this, or is it weird? Because sometimes, you may find your partner doing this when he or she shares an extremely comfortable space with you.
3. They are overprotective of their phone
Nowadays, most of our lives are trapped in those cell phones of ours. So, if you see that your partner is being overly protective of their phone and constantly keeps a check on who is using it, and what are they doing on the phone, there are a lot of chances that your partner is hiding something from you. You can also have a close look at their body language when you are normally using their phone, as body language can very clearly indicate their nervousness about you finding out what they have been hiding.
4. Your sexual and emotional intimacy is being affected
Research has shown that emotional and sexual intimacy are some of the major key predictors of a relationship, so if you are feeling insecure because of the sudden lack of your partner’s interest in you, they might actually be hiding something like having a sexual or emotional connection with someone other than you.
5. They don’t make eye contact and blink too much
Eyes are famous for revealing a lot of emotions that even your words can’t. Eye contact is something that creates a heightened sense of intimacy between you and your partner. So, if you find your partner doing unusual things just to avoid eye contact with you, they might be guilty of being distrustful or hiding something from you, as a non-guilty person is always willing to make eye contact.
6. Your intuition is giving you some signal
One of the easiest ways to know that your partner is hiding something from you is to accept what you feel. Our gut and intuition usually do guide us when we aren’t feeling the same love we once felt in that relationship, when something feels unusual and weird, but we tend to ignore all this. So, if your gut is giving you some signal, don’t just think that it is paranoia and ignore it; rather, take action against it.
