Whether you’re in a fantastic relationship or one that’s filled with arguments and power trips, sometimes even the best of us have been cheated on. What’s worse than finding out he’s cheating on you, though, is being taken for a fool.
Luckily, most guys don’t hide their indiscretions very well and leave myriad signs that they’re on the prowl behind your back.
Signs he’s cheating #1
He’s too nice
Suddenly he starts coming home and acting like you’re the greatest human being on earth. He wants to hug you all the time and treat you like a princess, when just a while ago he’d come home and barely acknowledge your existence. Something’s definitely rotten.
And when you ask him about this sudden change in behavior, he gets all defensive with the “can’t I treat my girl like gold without the third degree?” So you can either enjoy it while it lasts or investigate his time away from you further.
Signs he’s cheating #2
He gets really mean
On the other spectrum, some guys start treating you like complete crap when they start cheating on you. They go from being great boyfriends to being critical and rude at every turn.
It’s possible they want you to dump them so they can be free to spend their time with the other girl, or they might be lulling in the newness of the “perfect” girl they met and compare you to her. So every time you nag or do something he doesn’t like, he’s reminded of why, in his head, he’s cheating on you.
Signs he’s cheating #3
He’s different in bed
He went from being the missionary, 2-minute man, to the doggie-style, ass-spanking, foreplay loving, multiple orgasm dispenser. And you have no clue where all this came from.
It’s quite possible that there’s a girl out there who’s teaching him that sex can be a religious experience if he does it right, so he’s taking everything she’s teaching him and using it on you. And although it may be working, it’s quite possible he’s passing on more than sexual knowledge (read: Chlamydia).
Signs he’s cheating #4
He takes showers the instant he gets home
There was a time when he would get home, pop open a beer, kiss you, and plop down on the couch next to you to shoot the breeze. Now when he gets home, he heads straight for the shower before he does anything else.
Unless he’s home from a wild outdoor soccer game, there’s no reason why a man should hop into the shower the instant he enters the house. That is unless he has a vagina stench on him that he needs to eliminate, pronto. Then again, most guys will take a shower at her place or the motel, so tune your nose into that fresh shower smell as well.
Signs he’s cheating #5
He’s working out
You’ve been together for a while now and he has become quite comfortable in the relationship to the extent where he has started to let himself go somewhat. He has a bit of a spare tire and won’t refuse another helping of baby back ribs.
Suddenly, he enrolls at the gym and begins requesting salad for dinner. He’s losing weight and taking better care of himself, and all this is going on without warning.
