Signs Your Boyfriend Is Cheating

When the man you trust and love betrays you it is one of the most painful experiences in life.  Unfortunately, this happens more often than you imagine.  The only thing worse than your boyfriend cheating is being blindsided when it happens.  Outlined below are several signs that your boyfriend may be cheating on you.  You should be on the lookout for one or more of these signs.

Keep in mind, however, that there may be a change in your boyfriend’s behavior for reasons other than cheating.  Be observant, but do not jump to conclusions.  Your guy may be acting strangely because of stress at work or he may be depressed.  Be sure you are not projecting your own insecurities on to your boyfriend’s behavior.  If you have cheated in the past or if someone has already cheated on you in the past, you will be far more likely to suspect cheating where there is none.  Make careful observations and be honest with yourself before you start accusing your boyfriend of being unfaithful.

Here are a few signs that your boyfriend is cheating:

  1. Has he begun to take more interest in his appearance? Is he purchasing new clothing and having his hair trimmed every few weeks?  Is he working out when he used to be a couch potato?  If he has always been a little bit of a slob and has completely changed there is something going on.  It may be your guy is simply growing up and wants to present a better image of himself.  However, it may also be a sign of trouble.
  2. In the past, your boyfriend always wanted the two of you to spend as much time as possible together. Has he started avoiding spending time with you?  Does he seem to not care whether the two of you see each other very often?  This may be a sign of trouble in your relationship.  It may mean that he is already seeing someone else or it may indicate he is thinking of someone else.
  3. Is your boyfriend suddenly working late lots of nights? He may be working toward a promotion or he may not be conducting business at all.  Instead he may be promoting a relationship with someone else.  This is an old sign of cheating, but it still holds true.
  4. Has your boyfriend admitted to you that he cheated during past relationships? It may very well be that this is a pattern for him and he will do it again.  It is possible that he made a onetime mistake and is not a habitual cheater.  In this instance his one slip up should not be held against him.  However, for quite a few people cheating is what they do and they are likely to continue doing it again and again.
  5. You should be able to find out if your boyfriend is cheating if you are sneaky enough to check out his text messages, the history on his computer and/or his emails. Of course, if you get caught you will have a very hard time explaining yourself.  If your relationship has so little trust that you feel you must check his personal messages, then the relationship is probably no longer worth very much.  It may be time to move on.

It may not be too hard to spot the signs that your boyfriend is cheating.  Be sure you can deal with whatever you find when you start checking out your suspicions.  Remember, unless you are a very suspicious person by nature, if you think something is not right you in your relationship you are probably correct.
