Relationships can be extraordinarily complex. Combined with the individual problems we all have, precaution is a justified measure when approaching someone who has a tendency (real or imagined) to infidelity.
In this article, we present you 10 signs of a potentially unfaithful partner. As with any behavior, it can be difficult to decipher the intentions it hides. Moreover, the more “symptoms” are present, the more likely it is that a real problem exists. That being said, here are 10 signs of a potentially unfaithful partner:
1. He is emotionally distant
For the victim, it is easy enough to observe but extraordinarily difficult to accept. The emotional detachment of someone you love is like a stab in your heart. Unfortunately, this distance is too often a prelude to the deterioration of relationships. For a potentially unfaithful partner, it is easier to distance oneself emotionally from someone than to face the real problem. It’s a cowardly act, in many ways.
2. Lack of se xual intercourse or intimacy
When two people are in love with each other, it is natural for them to be intimate and to have s ex. In case the partner is no longer interested, this can be a sign of infidelity. This is especially true when there are no previous problems in this area. In all cases, this behavior is indicative of a certain type of emotional or physical disconnection. Anyway, given the importance of the physical connection in a relationship, a serious discussion is needed.
3. The need for “privacy”
It is completely normal that every person – engaged or not – needs a “moment for themselves”, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. However, when the other half is constantly expressing their need to be alone with “coward me”, “I need time to think”, etc., there is definitely a problem.
4. A sudden defensive attitude
It is necessary that two people engaged in a serious relationship understand the differences between their personalities. Defects must subsequently be understood and accepted. It is, therefore, strange for one of the two people to be suddenly on the defensive about any observable behavioral change. Rational dialogue is a necessity for any relationship; if it becomes difficult to communicate, there is certainly a problem.
5. Irregular financial habits
Two people involved in a serious relationship understand the importance of financial resources. Usually, any outgoing money is known and accounted for. If your partner, suddenly, comes out of your mutual agreement and makes expenses that he can not justify, it can at best be a sign of detachment, at worst a sign of infidelity.
6. Pay particular attention to his style
We all want to be presentable for a variety of reasons; most often, to be respectable and professional. However, a sudden change of style without explanation is rare, especially for those who have shown little interest in the past. Those who go through the midlife crisis often have a need for change to motivate themselves, to be younger and more presentable. Of course, the desire to appear more attractive to the opposite sex is a very real possibility.
7. The partner ignores your “circle of loved ones”
A tell-tale sign of an infidel is a sudden disconnect from your circle of friends. This is strange and may be a warning of a relationship problem. For those who cheat on their partner, it is much easier and convenient to separate from those close to them rather than revealing their true feelings. This is even more obvious if your half and your social circle were close at one time.
8. The partner monitors the phone/computer/ etc.
Nobody likes having their phone searched. In a serious relationship or marriage, however, it is not uncommon to take a look at your partner’s phone. Really, it’s not a big deal … unless he has something to hide or he’s in a bad mood. If suddenly this causes a problem to your half, it could betray something.
9. He is always excessively late
Anyone involved in a relationship will tell you that a schedule is important for things to work. This is especially true if you are married and have children or other obligations. A sudden lack of responsibility is strange, especially if this person can not explain this behavior.
10. “something happened at work”
There are things going on at work. Sometimes we have to work overtime to do our job. Only, if your partner can not explain the reason for his delays, then something is wrong. The excuse of overwork is a common excuse and practical because it is very commonplace. That said, when it’s real, your partner should be able to justify himself.
