“Cheating is never to do with how attractive you are.” – Marie Helvin No one likes to think about whether or not their partner is seeing or sleeping with someone else.
In an ideal world, no one would have to deal with the heartbreak that comes with being cheated on. Unfortunately, these things do happen. Hopefully, your relationship is one where open and honest communication comes before the possibility of your partner seeking an extramarital affair. But if that isn’t the case, there are plenty of ways to tell whether or not your partner is sleeping with someone else. Of course, context is key. Some of these signs, by themselves, don’t mean your . You need to look at the bigger picture, pattern of behavior, and see if it’s out of the norm.
Is Your Partner Sleeping With Someone Else? 1. They become protective of their phone If your partner, in the past, was not very protective of their phone and “ if you notice a change in phone habits — like suddenly on silent all the time”, that there’s something on there that they don’t want you to see, says author Marina Sbrochi. You’ve probably had no issue using your partner’s phone for something in the past – but now, they seem to be extremely protective, even going so far as to put a lock on it that prevents you from opening it.
2. They’re (too often) home late from work If your partner is usually home by a certain time every day, but suddenly they’re staying late at work, it could be an excuse for them to see someone else behind your back.
It’s a common enough excuse that many people don’t think too much about. As dating and relationship advice and etiquette expert April Masini says, “ When someone stops coming home at the regular time, on a regular basis, be wary. When a schedule changes and there’s no comment about why or what he or she is doing differently, it may be because your spouse is cheating on you.” 3.
Showering as soon as they get home Unless your partner does a job like construction, roofing, or something else that’s bound to get them dirty, taking a shower as soon as they get off work can be a sign that they’re trying to wash away the evidence of another person. They might want to scrub away some errant lipstick, or a hint of cologne or perfume. This is a sign, especially if their showering habits are changing suddenly.
4. Their sex drive is down People’s often fluctuate due to stress, nutrition, lack of exercise, or any other reason. A fluctuating sex drive isn’t a sign in and of itself. But, if your sex life has always been pretty regular, and they start no longer desiring your attention, it may be because they’re getting their needs met elsewhere. But why? Psychotherapist and author Tina B. Tessina, PhD., says, “ Most women cheat because they feel emotionally deprived, and men are unfaithful because they often feel sexually deprived.” 5.
They’re not as present during sex as they used to be Now, perhaps your partner is still having sex with you – but maybe they’re not having the same type of sex. If your sex has gone from exciting and enjoyable to a few minutes under the covers with the lights off, it may be a sign that your partner is simply trying to placate you, while having their enjoyable sex elsewhere.
6. They pay more attention to their appearance This sign doesn’t always mean that they’re sleeping with someone else – especially if they’ve already discussed with you wanting to change their appearance. However, if your partner goes from not caring much about how they look, to suddenly preening like a peacock, they may be trying to impress someone else. Masini adds, “ If your partner starts suddenly looking a lot better than he or she used to, they may be cheating.” If you’re not sure that the person they’re trying to impress is you, this can point to a sign of your partner stepping out.
7. They’re unexpectedly trying something new in bed Of course, this also doesn’t automatically mean that your partner is cheating on you.
Usually, something new is going to be communicated between the two of you. However, if your partner is suddenly kissing you in a way that seems learned, or trying something new in bed without having discussed it first, it may be a sign that they’re actually figuring this stuff out with someone else. 8. You can never get a straight answer If your partner has gone from being open and honest in all of their communication, to being flighty and cagey, it’s probably a sign that they have something to hide from you.
Getting a straight answer may feel impossible, even something as simple as how their day at work went. This can be a sign that they’re trying to hide something – or someone. 9. They’ve picked up new habits These habits can be anything from suddenly being over-protective of their phone, to not picking up their phone when you call.
The new habits that your partner exhibits will often be hard to explain away, and your partner may feel defensive if you try to bring them up. This can be a sign that they’re seeing someone else and they don’t want you to know about it. 10. You’re feeling ignored One of the biggest signs that your partner is seeing someone else, is that feeling you get when you know that you’re no longer being appreciated in the relationship. While your partner may think that hiding evidence of the fact is enough, they may not notice that they’re treating you differently, and making you feel underappreciated.
11. Your partner is avoiding your friends and family If your partner was very active in your social or family life before, but doesn’t seem to be showing too much of an interest now, it could be a sign that they’re trying to avoid a fallout. They may feel extremely guilty for seeing someone outside of the relationship, and seeing your friends and family can be a reminder of that. Most of these signs are about extreme and sudden changes in behavior.
If your partner exhibits these signs, but they don’t seem out of the ordinary for your relationship, it’s not likely that they’re seeing someone else. As always, context is important to understanding your partner’s behavior, and whether or not they’re seeing someone outside the relationship.
If you suspect that they are, the best way to get an answer is to confront them directly, and try to have an honest conversation about what is going on. (C)Power of Positivity, LLC.

girl has been seeing someone else - 11 Signs Your Partner May Be Sleeping With Someone Else
Hi Meredith, You've got one confused reader here. Back in April, I met a girl through a mobile dating app. I was new to the world of online dating and I was also new to the world of exploring a relationship with someone of the same gender. Long story short, I abandoned the app, but not before getting the number of a girl who really piqued my interest.
For the sake of this letter we will call her Annie. Annie is beautiful, smart, and witty, and I was instantly intrigued by her. Although we met via a dating app, we became friends, divulging stories of relationships gone wrong, what our life goals were, etc. We exchanged texts on and off for several months before finally meeting in the fall. When we met in person, our night out was great. Conversation flowed as naturally as it did via text, and we enjoyed each other's company – as friends.
I'd be lying if I said I didn't feel more after meeting her, though, and wondered if she felt what I did. We continued to text each other intermittently, but the frequency and nature of our texts back and forth began to increase last month.
We would spend hours messaging one another throughout the day. She also began dropping hints that made it seem like she was interested in pursuing something more than a friendship with me. I finally got the nerve to go for it and I asked her out, as more than a friend. I was over the moon when she said yes and agreed to go on a date. We kept it simple and just went out for dinner and then went back to her place for some drinks.
The night ran its course and it was finally time for me to head back to my apartment. As I gathered up my jacket and made my way to the door, I admitted my nerves and apologized for my awkwardness in the "do I kiss her or not" moment. Before I even got the chance to make my move, she dropped a bomb.
She's been seeing someone for a couple months. And while things are not defined between the two of them, the other girl has admitted that she is not seeing anyone else, leaving Annie feeling guilty about pursuing something with me and not giving her a chance. I was confused and crushed. I had let myself fall for her emotionally and had taken a huge step by asking her out. Why would she agree to go on a date with me if she knew that it would only be that – a first date?
I'm having a hard time trying to figure out what signs I might have missed and how to move forward. Can we resume a friendship or do I need to walk away from whatever this was all together? I'm at a loss and looking for any advice on what to do. Impart your wisdom on me! – Confused and Crushed I don't know why she agreed to go on a date with you if she was already exclusive with someone else.
I don't know why she didn't tell you she was dating in the first place; you guys were texting for months, which means she had plenty of opportunities to talk about her romantic life.
Clearly she has some feelings for you; at the very least, she likes your attention. But if she can't reciprocate right now, you should probably take some space so that you can reset your expectations.
Let her know that if she finds herself single, she should reach out. You don't have to eliminate her from your life, but you do have to set boundaries based on the fact that she's committed to another person.
Consider that status before you text, call, or make any kind of plans. One of the lessons here is that when you meet someone on an app, even as a friend, it helps to have in-person time sooner than later.
It also helps to admit feelings when you have them. (I know, I know, easier said than done.) This one hurts, but try to be positive. You met someone you liked, and she really wanted to have a date, even though she wasn't available. There are probably more people on that app who want your company. A lot of them are single, too. – Meredith Readers? What happened here?
I feel like I should explain the situation first. So I met this girl about 5 years ago and ever since we met we had a really strong connection. We were physically and emotionally attracted to each other and we shared everything about our lives. We were exclusively seeing each other but we were also best friends. This went on for about 2 and bit years and then the following few months I slowly lost interest in her. We never really officially said we were bf and gf but we knew we were exclusively seeing each other and no one else.
I was always the one who wanted to date her but she never wanted the status. After slowly losing interest in her we went from talking and seeing each other all the time to messaging every week or so and seeing each other about a month or so.
At one point we agreed to stop speaking to each other and just remain friends but somehow that didn’t last and we started talking again. I’ve met up with her once before and spoke to her about what we were, that I wanted more and that she’d lose me if we weren’t officially bf and gf.
That’s when she said lets do that but at that point my interest was still lost and I basically still ran off. During that time until now I kinda just did my own thing. Went out regularly and hung out with my best mates. But whenever we would talk or hang out it would be like old times and as if nothing had changed.
Just recently something hit me and I had a sudden realisation that she has always been the one for me and that I never really stopped loving her. She understood me like no one else did. It’s now been about 2 months of talking constantly and meeting up regularly but I recently met up with her and spoke to her about how I felt and that this time was different. I asked her for another chance since I was the one who ran off. She then told me that she cant trust what I’m saying because A did this once before and still ran off even though I’ve told her that this time is different and it truly is.
And even though I’ve been putting in a lot of effort into our relationship, thats still not enough because she said what if I stop talking to her all of a sudden again. This was something that was super painful for her to deal with and I was selfish and never thought about how she might’ve felt.
She then told me that she’s been seeing someone for about 6 months now and that she cant just drop everything with him just because I said what I said. We spoke for hours and I feel like its still kind of unresolved. I want what’s best for her and I want her to be happy which she is right now but at the same time I want her to stop seeing that guy and see me. I know she still has feelings for me but it’s because I’ve broken that trust that she won’t want to see me.
I told her that its hard for me to remain what we are knowing she’s seeing someone else and she said that she still wants me to be a close friend to her. But she’ll also understand if I want to just cut her off completely. Which I don’t want to do because I love talking to her and she loves talking to me and I still feel like we have a chance.
I have so many questions. Did I put myself in a friend zone with her. If so, I have no idea what to do. Did she start seeing someone to fill the void I left.
Is she just in a rebound relationship. I want to keep things going between us because what if she ends things with that guy. Then I can be there for her and I know she’d want to get back with me. But at the same time I know I shouldn’t be putting myself in that situation and wait for her. Our friendship means a lot to the both of us
