How To Tell If Your Partner Is Cheating: The 8 Most Common Signs

Cheating is the ultimate betrayal, but that's not to say it doesn’t happen. According to a recent survey, around one in three people claim to have cheated on partners at some point in their lives. That’s an awful lot of people who have been left feeling betrayed and broken-hearted. The good news is that many partners can see the red flags before they get blindsided. If you're worried your partner might be cheating on you, read on for 10 potential warning signs:

1. Knowing the person you’re dating well is key.

If you’re serious about finding out whether or not your partner is cheating, the first thing you should do is get to know them better. When you start dating someone, it’s easy to become infatuated with the idea of who they are and the potential you see in them. It’s easy to overlook the little things that could warn you something isn’t right. When you’ve been dating someone for a while, you know what’s normal for them and you know what they’re truly capable of.

You also know what they’re likely incapable of. You know what their boundaries are and what they’re not comfortable with. You know how they handle conflict, you know how they handle stress and you know how they respond to pressure. You get to see how they deal with everyday life. If you’ve only been dating someone for a short amount of time, you don’t know any of these things.

You don’t know how they handle stress and pressure. You don’t know what their boundaries are or what they’re not comfortable with. You don’t know how they deal with everyday life. If your partner is cheating, you’re less likely to be able to see the signs.

2. They suddenly start spending a lot more time at the gym.

We’ve all heard the saying, “Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.” Well, what happens when you’re dating someone who suddenly starts spending a lot of time at the gym? A lot of people will assume that this is a positive change. After all, it’s a very reasonable assumption that your partner is trying to get in shape and stay healthy.

However, it’s also an easy way for someone to cover their tracks when they’re cheating. A lot of people will assume that someone who is cheating at work will use the same strategy in their private life and start looking for ways to cover their tracks. When your partner suddenly starts spending a lot more time at the gym, it’s a good idea to check out their online dating profile and see if they’ve started posting new photos. If they suddenly look a lot hotter, you might have a problem with your hands.

3. Your partner becomes much more guarded with their phone.

If your partner is cheating, they’re going to try as hard as they can to keep you out of their business. They’ll want to keep any evidence of their affair a secret. They may even go as far as deleting texts and chats so that you don’t have any evidence.

If you suddenly notice that your partner is much more guarded with their phone and they’re suddenly locking it or putting it on silent when you’re around, it’s a red flag. If you’re dating someone who has been faithful to you for years, but suddenly starts acting like they’re a spy and shutting you out of the most basic parts of their life, they could be cheating on you.

4. Your partner is constantly swiping on dating apps but has no intention of meeting anyone.

If your partner is constantly swiping on dating apps and websites like Tinder, Bumble, and others, but has no intention of actually meeting anyone, it could be a huge red flag. Those apps aren’t for people who are happy with their current relationship.

If you see your partner swiping but not making any effort to meet up with anyone, it could be a sign that they’re just trying to get their fix. Dating apps are a great way for people to meet other singles and potentially find a relationship, but only if they’re putting themselves out there and trying to meet someone. If you see your partner constantly swiping but never meeting anyone, it could be a sign that they’re just looking at pictures and videos of other people to get off.

5. You find a lot of strange receipts or credit card charges that don’t make sense.

If you find that your partner is suddenly making purchases that they can’t justify and they don’t make sense, it could be a sign that they’re cheating on you. If you’re not 100% sure what their regular spending habits are, it could be hard to notice this.

But if you know what they typically buy and they suddenly start making unexplained purchases, especially in large amounts, it could be a sign that they’re up to no good. If you see a lot of charges from hotels and gift shops, it could be a sign that they’re meeting someone. If you see a lot of charges from a specific flower shop, it could be a sign that they’re sending flowers to someone. If you see a lot of charges from a specific lingerie shop, it could mean that they’re ordering lingerie for someone.

6. You see an unknown number calling your partner frequently.

If you notice that your partner is suddenly getting a lot of calls from an unknown number, it could be a sign that they’re cheating on you. If you pay attention to the calls they receive, it’s easy to notice this. If the same number keeps calling your partner, it might be worth looking up the number and seeing what comes up.

If the number doesn’t come up as a name, it’s even more suspicious. If someone is cheating on you, they’re probably trying to keep the person they’re seeing a secret. They may not want to give them their number, or they might want to give them a fake number. A lot of people will just use burner phones or throwaway numbers to keep their affairs a secret. If you notice an unknown number calling your partner, it’s worth investigating further.

7. You see strange hair or skin flakes in your partner’s bathroom but they have no idea how they got there.

If your partner has very long hair, it’s reasonable that they’ll occasionally find stray hair in their shower or on their sink. After all, people are bound to get hair in weird places now and again. But if you notice a lot of hair in their bathroom, it could be a sign that they’re cheating on you.

If you notice a lot of skin flakes in their bathroom but they have no idea how they got there, it could be a sign that they’re cheating on you. Most people will notice a stray hair or two if their partner has long hair. They’ll notice a stray skin flake or two if their partner has long legs. But if you see a lot of hair and skin flakes in your partner’s bathroom, it could be a sign that they’re cheating on you.

8. There’s always an excuse for why they can’t meet up with you and constantly reschedules dates.

If you notice that your partner is constantly canceling dates and rescheduling them, it could be a sign that they’re cheating on you. If they have no other reason to cancel and they just keep finding excuses to reschedule and push back dates, it’s a clear warning sign that they’re cheating on you.
