It might not be what you want to hear right now but most of the time, when you have a gut feeling that your partner is cheating, they probably are. But if you want some extra reassurance you're not crazy, we've got 12 signs that you shouldn't ignore if you suspect your boyfriend is not doing the right thing.
1. He uses his phone more than usual
It might be just subtle at first, like checking it in the morning as soon as he wakes up or checking through the night, but you may have noticed it seems off.
2. He has changed his cologne or hair
Men can be pretty gross but like women, when they want to dress to impress, it's pretty obvious. If you're used to your man forgetting deodorant most days and never combing his hair, and now he wears cologne and gels his hair back, there might be something going on. It could be for you but if he's going straight out the door looking slick, it could be for some girl at work.
3. He likes a lot of hot girls' photos on Instagram
Have you noticed him “liking” a lot of hot photos of girls you've never met? Not only is that disrespectful, it's also odd behaviour. Call him out on it and see what he says.
4. He's more angry than usual
If your boyfriend starts arguments with you over nothing these days, he could be looking for an excuse to get away from you. See if something else is bothering him.
5. He puts his phone on airplane mode randomly
This is easy to check without being too intrusive. But then again if a guy really doesn't want to get caught he'll be more covert and will download secret apps.
6. He gives you just enough attention
He might be doing this to keep you happy but not enough to actually mean something. He also seems distant when you're together.
7. He always has a reason why you can't meet up with him when he's out or at work
He might say he's busy at a meeting or the guys are just together tonight, but if you hear it more than usual, you've reason to be suspicious.
8. He says you're crazy whenever you call him out
He has a habit of turning it around on you, saying you're being clingy or crazy. It's not nice and it's probably to cover something up.
9. He occasionally agrees to plans, then backs out later
This shadiness can't be left unexplained. Ask around his friends to see if he's really hanging with them instead.
10. He hardly texts back
Lately it seems harder to keep in contact with your own boyfriend. He barely writes back during the day and seems uninterested.
11. He sometimes lies about random things
His spiral of lies seems to go beyond cheating and into simple things like what he said to someone.
12. One girl or a number of girls like a lot of his pics
If you've noticed a girl or a few girls have been liking your boyfriend's photos, you might be on to something, especially if she's come out of nowhere and is good looking.
