What are the Signs of a Woman Cheating on You?
Though men bear the brunt of most cheating accusations, the truth is that the number of women who have reported being unfaithful has increased by 40 percent since 1990. Yes, women are just as guilty of cheating — but unlike their male counterparts, they’re so good at maintaining a double-life that often times it’s almost impossible to tell an adulterous wife and a faithful one apart.
So if women can cover their tracks so well, then how are you supposed to tell whether your wife is cheating on you? Well, if you’re reading this article, then it’s safe to say that you already have your suspicions — but before you make any confrontations or come to any conclusions, you’ll need to familiarize yourself with the subtle signs your wife is cheating on you and watch out for them in your relationship.
She is dressing differently.
If your girlfriend suddenly cares about her appearance again after years of just bumming around in a t-shirt and jeans, lazing on the couch with her hair in a messy bun, and not putting much effort into a night out, something is definitely wrong.
Jonathan Bennett, a certified counselor and co-owner of Double Trust Dating, says that if your partner has had the same haircut for a long time but suddenly has a bold new haircut “this could indicate an effort to impress another person.”
She seems distracted.
Your once attentive girlfriend barely seems to look you in the eye these days. You find yourself repeating things to her because she’s not listening.
It’s hard for her to stay in the conversation and she is always looking over your shoulder. If she’s cheating on you, you’ll find that she has disconnected from your relationship in many ways.
She has started to talk about the future in a different way.
If she used to talk about the future and use the word, “we”, but now talks about things she wants to do alone, that’s not good.
Even if she tells you that she didn’t mean to be selfish about her plans, be wary that she may just be covering her tracks.
She pays a lot of attention to her phone.
Sure, everyone pays a lot of attention to their phones these days, but if she is choosing to scroll through social media or respond to text messages instead of talking to you, you would be right to question her motives.
According to counselor and therapist, Dr. Tracey Phillips, hiding things from you on their phone may be a sign of cheating:
“They could be trying to avoid receiving any questionable calls or texts in your presence.”
It could be that she doesn’t even realize she is doing it, but if she is having an affair, you can bet that she will get defensive and insulted by the assumption that she is doing anything other than updating her latest selfie pic.
