Suddenly, he creates distance in your relationship. You don’t understand what is going on or why he is acting indifferent towards you. Maybe he’s having a bad day or maybe it’s something you did.
While a change in behavior doesn’t automatically mean your partner is cheating, don’t fall into the trap of making excuses if the signs are there:
Details about his day are missing. In fact, he’s silent or only responds in short phrases when you sit down to talk. Even if he doesn’t want to talk about something, your husband should care enough about you to have a conversation.
2. He Is Using His Phone A Lot More (And Not For You)
If he suddenly starts texting more often, but he still takes forever to reply to you… that may be a sign that he’s cheating. It doesn’t mean he is definitely cheating on you. He could just be having an important conversation…
3. Indifference towards you
He no longer communicates or interacts with you. For someone who used to love talking through your problems and being your support system, his indifference is a slap in the face. Don’t make excuses to pardon this behavior.
4. He Suddenly Cares About His Hygiene
You’ve known him long enough to know how he typically cares for himself. If he takes a sudden interest in how he looks, his physical health, and even starts showering more, who is he trying to impress?
5. He Goes Out More
Whether he’s going out “with friends” or has something come up with family, this could be a red flag that he’s really seeing someone else.
6. He Keeps Working Late
Sudden work emergency? Big project that he didn’t tell you about in advance? If he starts working overtime and is hours on sporadic days of the week working late, he might not actually be working…
7. He Avoids Getting Close To You
If you notice that your guy suddenly avoids intimacy with you (or stops entirely), that’s a huge red flag.
8. He Lashes Out At You
If your guy starts arguments with you, especially if it’s over something simple, he could be looking for an excuse to get away from you and towards someone else…
The guilt he feels will lead him to accuse you of something before you accuse him first.
10. Lack of interest
Losing interest in the things and people he loves is a huge red flag. If he doesn’t seem interested in making plans about a vacation with the family or how he’d like to celebrate his birthday, pay attention. At one time, these things really mattered to him, but he’s creating distance in his life due to guilt.
No one wants to think of their partner having an affair, but don’t be blinded by the possibility. The important thing to remember is to stay strong and remember that he’s not guilty until you have proof. Talk with your spouse, friends, and a counselor to help you through this. Have patience and courage to face what lays ahead.
