Signs of a Cheating Husband

Signs of a Cheating Husband

One of the most common ways you can detect if your partner is cheating is by looking out for changes in his day to day routine and behavior. If your partner is having an affair it is quite likely that he will start acting differently. This is because we all settle into certain routines when things are regular and normal so it is only natural that if something changes in our lives then things get thrown off course and we start doing things differently. These changes in your husband's routine can be giveaway clues that he's seeing someone else but can be so easily missed.

Have you detected any of the following ?

Has he become short tempered with your children ?

Does he want to be out more now whereas before he was happy to be at home with you ?

Does he stay awake later a night? This may be so that he can phone, SMS or email 'her' once you've gone to bed or simply in the hope that you'll be asleep before he gets into bed.

Suspicious cell phone behavior - Has he become possessive of his cell phone ? Does he keep it close by whenever you're nearby ? Men who cheat use their cell phone to communicate with the other women. Unless they are totally stupid and use their home phone number. Look for him erasing his call logs and messages constantly.

Does he insist on answering the phone and talks in coded mode if you are around or feels uncomfortable by your presence ?

Don't mistake raging hormones for love. They are two entirely different things.

Has he become more possessive towards his wallet, pocket calendar or briefcase ?

Out of respect for your parents and yourself, you should always let them know : where you are going, a phone number where you can be reached, who you are going out with and when you will return.

Has he started avoiding you in the home? Doesn’t look into your eyes straight ?

Does he go out for longer and more frequent walks ?

No more arguing - Has he become docile when arguments arise? Men do not like confrontation when they are cheating, they will do whatever it takes to avoid any type of heated confrontation.

Has he lost interest in things he used to be passionate about, say a particular sport or a particular hobby ?

All of a sudden has he starts talking about getting together with old friends he hasn't seen in years and about whom he has never spoken of to you ?

Have you noticed him suddenly being more knowledgeable about women's clothing, perfume or jewelry? If so he could be buying gifts for another woman.

Has he started to take an interest in something that you know he was never previously bothered about ?

Has he stopped leaving his clothes lying around or started doing any of his own washing, maybe because there are revealing smells or marks on them ?

Has he started encouraging you to go alone to visit parents or friends now a days ?

Has he started attending extended seminars/official/business trips or going on tours he never used to attend and go before with that frequency ?

Has he has started keeping an overnight bag in his car or office, apparently for a workout ?

Does he make a point of keeping the car/bike free of things belonging to you or the kids ?

 Does he forget to wear the wedding ring sometimes ?

Did he remember things he had forgotten to do at the office and wants to leave immediately at odd hours ?
