Simple statements like ‘I am the happiest when I’m next to you’ or ‘You make my day’ from your boyfriend are like boosters in your relationship. Off late, you both seem to have hit the rough patch and things don’t seem to be looking up for you.
A lot of fights and misunderstandings seem to eat up a lot of your time leaving you both exhausted. You seem to have developed a gut instinct that things are not what they look like and there is another woman involved with your partner.
This could be wrong or right, but you do seem to worry a lot about it. We elaborate some of the signs if he’s cheating on you or you could just be paranoid about being in a rough patch.
A major change in his appearance
WikiHow states this as the first thing to notice in men when you feel they begin to change. He used to be a lot shabbier when you both, if you use one of the adult terminologies, hit it off with the relationship. He was casual and never really made efforts to dress up around you for dates or outings.
Off late, you seem to notice a complete shift in your partner’s appearance as he seems to clean up better. Shaves often, clean haircut, showers and tries to wear clothes that make him look better. He seems to be prim and proper even if he’s over worked or spending too much time in class. He might also be spending a lot of time in late night parties. It’s a red flag too if he starts to smell different.
Sudden business trips
This seems to worry a lot of women as their partners start going on a lot of business trips out of nowhere. Their work trips are very impromptu and this seems to increase the suspicion in you.
As per Independent.co.uk, this could also lead to him spending very less time and trips make the best excuse for them to not do so. If they seem to avoid talking or making eye contact after these trips, it is time for you to worry. Also, time to do some confronting.
Avoids social gatherings with you
He does not seem to be keen on going out with you anymore and just sees you home. No social gatherings with you and he’s hardly home in spite of that?
When you try to ask him why you both don’t go out for casual dates or common meet-ups with friends, he always finds the silliest of excuses for it.
If he comes back home drunk a little too often, this could raise an alarm bell in you too.
Finds unnecessary reasons to fight with you
There are simple things like keeping your tooth brush together or wanting to watch something at a particular time on TV.
If these reasons are annoying him and make him pick up loud and ugly fights with you, it could be his way of telling you that he’s done. He seems to be doing way too often and immediately sticks to his phone or steps out.
These are just some of the many reasons for you to feel that he’s cheating on you. Men react in different ways if something goes kaput in a relationship. If trust is what is missing in a relationship, we suggest you have a sit down with him.
Have a heart to heart talk and leave nothing for speculation. These could either be mere misunderstandings and if not, he will own up for something bigger. We wish you luck for a healthier relationship!
