8 Small Signs That Your Partner Is Having An Affair

One of the most common reasons for breaking up is infidelity. Nearly everyone has been cheated on at some point in their life and it's one of the most painful things a person can experience. While infidelity always hurts, it hurts even worse the longer it goes on. Fortunately, there are some subtle signs that can help you to see your partner's infidelity early on. This way, you won't linger on in an unfaithful relationship for too long before the affair is revealed. Read on to find out eight small signs that your partner is having an affair:

1. They're Spending More Time With “Friends”

Now, don't immediately be alarmed that your partner is hanging out with their friends. In the vast majority of cases, they are legitimately hanging out with their friends. With that said, there are instances in which spending time with friends is used as a coverup for spending time with another man or woman. In some cases, your partner's friends may even be in on the coverup and lie for them if confronted.


2. They Insist On Doing the Laundry

It may seem like a strange sign, but pay attention to this one. If your partner has never ever helped with household chores and suddenly insists on being the one to do the laundry, it could be that they're trying to cover the tracks. They may want to make sure that you don't uncover any evidence of their indiscretions, like the smell of another woman's perfume or a receipt in their pocket from a dinner date.

3. They Have A Secret Credit Card

Have you found that your partner has a secret credit card or bank account you never knew about? It's not necessary for you to know everything about your partner's finances, but if they have purposely opened a new account that you were to never know about, there's definitely something shady going on.

4. Their Phone Is Always On Them

Do you notice that your partner's phone is always on their person? There could be a reason for this. If your partner always keeps their phone in their pocket or physically on them instead of setting it down somewhere, it's likely that they have something to hide. They probably don't want a call or text from the other person coming up in front of you – or they don't want to risk you intercepting their phone and looking through it.

5. They're Buying You Expensive Gifts

Did your partner suddenly come home with a very expensive gift for you when it wasn't even a holiday? Expensive “just because” gifts could be just that. Maybe they wanted to put a smile on your face. On the other hand, these gifts can be a serious sign of guilt. When your partner showers you in lavish gifts, they feel less guilty about their infidelity.

6. They're Very Private About Their Social Media

Does your partner guard their Facebook and other social media beyond reason? If your partner refuses to let you see their social media profiles, it's likely there's something incriminating on there. They could be messaging other people, looking for someone to cheat with. They may already be cheating and using social media to contact the other man or woman.

7. They Reject Your Affection

If your partner rebuffs your advances and suddenly has no interest in sex, it could be that they are having these needs met elsewhere. Sure, every couple experiences ruts in their sex life. However, if this happens seemingly out of nowhere and seems impossible to fix, it could be that your partner is being intimate with someone else.

8. They've Made Changes To Their Appearance

When your partner starts making random changes to their appearance, it can be that they are trying to impress another person. If they are suddenly dyeing their hair or wearing different clothes, consider this a red flag and don't let it go unaddressed.
