There are tons of signs that your partner may be cheating on you. Today I’m going to focus on 5 signs that your significant other may be cheating online, and what you can do about it both before and after the fact.
The internet has made it quite simple for people to have online affairs. Apps that help us connect to one another. Dozens of dating sites begging for a profile to be made. Instant messaging, snapchats and even groups have made it easy for someone to hook up with someone else without their spouse knowing about it.
Password Protected Devices
There is no need to keep your passwords protected. Not from the one you love. I get that in today’s society password protection is needed, especially against others trying to steal your personal information. But that doesn’t include your spouse. Your partner should know all your passwords (just in case) of an emergency. If your partner isn’t sharing their passwords then ask yourself this: What are they hiding?
The way your partner behaves is a tell-tale sign that something might be up. If they are suddenly acting all nice or angry all the time, something fishy might be going on. It might not mean they are cheating, but you know your partner best. My advice is to get to the bottom of it. Find out what is really going on before it is too late.
Deleting Messages So Your Partner Can’t See Them
This is a big sign that your significant other may be cheating online and it stems from being dishonest. If you are looking at some messages and don’t want your partner to see them because you are afraid they will get angry. Then you shouldn’t be looking at those messages in the first place. If your spouse or partner is hiding messages it could be a sign that your significant other is cheating online. Honesty is the most important factor in any relationship. So there should never be any secrets.
Secret Social Accounts
Nowadays cheating isn’t just about finding lipstick on the collar (cliche) but it’s true. It’s about online networking. Discovering your partner has a secret Facebook or Twitter profiles isn’t good. Not if you aren’t aware of it. Check your computer’s history to see what’s been going on. Don’t make yourself paranoid, but ask your spouse why the separate account and decided whether or not they have a secret account for a legitimate reason.
Showering When Coming Home (Often)
Now don’t get me wrong. There is nothing strange about a person showering, especially after a long day on the construction site or after working in the mill. But if your partner is coming home and jumping in the shower right away or each night before bed when they didn’t do this routine before. You can bet something is up and your partner may be cheating online. In fact, it’s one of the main signs believe it or not of cheating in general. Gotta wash that guilt away somehow.
What To Do if You Discover Your Significant Other Cheating Online
- Don’t panic.
- Talk about things if you can.
- Go for counseling.
- Remember why you fell in love.
- Be honest with yourself and your partner.
- Try to work things out.
- Be open to forgiving and listening.
- If tempers are heated – walk away.
I know many people might read some of these tips and say “No way! If my partner is cheating – I am gone – or I want a divorce~” That is up to you. One thing that I have learned is that most couples and marriages that stay together for long periods of time go through some form of infidelity. Why? Because we are human beings and we make mistakes.
I’m not saying you should stick with your cheating partner. I’m simply saying that before you walk away, try to put everything you can into fixing things in your relationship. If it’s worth fixing–fight for it.
It’s funny but when our kids mess up and they do over and over, we simply forgive them and move on. Yet for some reason when it comes to our partners there are no second or third chances. Just a little food for thought. Your partner is human. So are you. Remember that before you make any decisions that will affect the rest of your life.
Here’s to a happy relationship!
