Cheating Partner Signs — 7 Easily-Overlooked Things To Watch For

Sometimes cheating partner signs are easy to see. Sometimes they’re far less obvious. If you’re under the impression something is wrong with your relationship, it might be because your partner is up to no good.

Steve here and welcome to this week’s private eye post where we’ll take a look at some of the easily-overlooked cheating partner signs.

Some cheats have affairs for years without their partners ever being aware that something is wrong. But whenever gut instinct kicks in, it’s usually around the beginning stages of an affair. And that’s because the cheat is making changes in their lives. Don’t let things go by. If you think something is going on, you’re right to investigate.

1. Addition Of New Routine

The longer you’ve known your partner the easier this is to spot — potentially. The addition of a new routine, such as staying an extra hour at work on a Thursday every week, could be the first clue you have to them cheating on you.


2. Failure To Respond

We’re all contactable all the time. Is your other half usually quick to answer your calls, or reply to your texts? If they are, but there they fail to pick up or answer a text, then what’s the reason? Of course, one-off occurrences happen, which are nothing to worry about. But you should check by attempting to contact your partner at the same time the following week.


3. Making Plans Without You

When you’re in a healthy relationship, you typically make plans with your partner. Usually, there’s never a need to confirm something without their input. So if your partner is now regularly making plans without you, especially ones that don’t involve you, it might be a good time to question the motives behind the plans.


4. Snap Easily

Has your spouse snapped at you for no apparent reason? If they have, there’s definitely something wrong. It might not be an affair but there’s obviously something on their mind. Snapping at a partner is one of the most common things we hear in cases of cheating partner investigations.


5. No Compromise

Relationships are all about compromise. If there’s no quarter given from your partner then the relationship is one-sided. (This is a problem even if there’s no affair!) The usual cause is a loss of love for the other person, which is why this can be a significant indication of something going on behind your back.


6. No Inside Jokes

We all have inside jokes we share with our friends and loved ones. Has he stopped sharing inside jokes with you? Or perhaps he doesn’t find them funny any more? Major issue! Something is very wrong and it could be because he has a new mistress.


7. Eye Behaviour

If you learn about cheating body language, you’ll pick up information about eye behaviour. Some will say looking away while talking to you means a lie. Some will say staring is a sure-fire sign of lying. What you need is a baseline. What does this particular person do when they’re talking to you?

The police do a similar thing. They ask innocent questions first. Your name and address. What you’ve been doing in the days and hours leading up to the event they really want to question you about. Cameras record your every movement and when they start asking more probing questions they can tell if you change how you normally respond.

You can do the same thing.

You don’t even need to ask heaps of questions like the police do. Because you already know how your partner responds to you. So, when it’s different there must be a reason why. Right? Exactly.



Adulterers have to make changes to their lives to accommodate the person they’re cheating with. They’re both physical and mental changes and it’s these changes that give rise to the ‘symptoms’ outlined above.
