Have you ever wondered if your man is cheating on you? While there are many different reasons and root causes behind why men cheat, including a lack of self-esteem, a search for validation, emotional or physical dissatisfaction, in addition to sheer lust or love for another person, an unfaithful partner can be devastating for any relationship.
After all, if your goal is to have a healthy, successful, and long-lasting connection, being able to fully trust your partner is at the very heart of letting him into your heart. So if you suspect that he is cheating on you, it is important to look for these 3 warning signs that prove your man is cheating on you.
1. He is overly complimentary
One of the sign that proves your man is cheating on you is when he is over complimentary of you. And while this extra praise, attention, and admiration may make you feel incredible, too much of it should raise a red flag. Why did he suddenly started showering you with compliments? Was he always so flattering and appreciative of every little thing you did before? When his praise for you becomes excessive and over-the-top, he might be attempting to throw you off the scent so you would never surmise that he was cheating. To that end, this overly complimentary nature is also a tactic that he may use in front of your friends and family in the hopes that no one would ever suspect that he was doing anything behind your back. In addition, when it comes to this type of personality shift in which your man suddenly becomes a compliment-spewing machine, it is important to keep in mind that this behavior may stem from guilt.
2. He accuses you of cheating
While it may seem surprising, a common characteristic of a cheating man is that he accuses you of cheating on him. In fact, it’s been shown that people tend to accuse their accusers of what they are doing as a way to deflect blame and guilt. And if your man insists that you are the one who is being unfaithful or if his response to cheating inquiries is that you are the person who is doing him wrong, this could a sign that he is been cheating on you. After all, if someone accuses you of something that you are not guilty of, you would do everything in your power to rebuff, disaprove, and discredit the accusation with clear-cut facts. On the other hand, if you were actually guilty, one way to try to absolve yourself from blame and avoid having to take the fall is to flip the argument back at the other person, no matter how ridiculous it may sound. So if he starts playing the blame game and throwing accusations in your face, it could be because he is playing games behind your back.
3. He is less intimate with you
To that end, this type of distance is not only emotional, but physical as well. If you have noticed that your once healthy and blooming sexual relationship has become a thing of the past, this behavior can also be indicative of a cheater. In fact, it’s been found that even when some men are in happy and fulfilling relationships, they still have a proclivity to cheat. With this in mind, if your once frequent and fulfilling intimate time together now occurs less often and/or your partner seems rushed, distracted, and disinterested, take it to heart that this man may be toying with your heart. After all, since he’s off sowing his wild oats elsewhere, he doesn’t have a real need, desire, or interest to be close and intimate with you as well. Plus, he may view his other sexual excursions and endeavors to be more appealing due to the fact that they’re happening under a lure of secrecy. So if you’re finding that your man is pulling away from you, he may be trying to pull one over you.
