Hey there, Steve here and welcome to this week’s private eye post, where we’ll look at five telltale signs your girlfriend is cheating on you. According to research, one in four people will cheat on their partner. So, it’s unsurprising that our most accessed service is our cheating spouse or partner investigations.
Some red flags are obvious — it’s easy to know your girlfriend is cheating on you, when you arrive home early from work one day and catch some guy in your bed. But other signs aren’t so obvious, and can simply feel like things aren’t ‘great’ with your relationship.
When our clients tell us these not-so-obvious signs are taking place in their relationship, it’s almost 90% that there’s an affair taking place.
Disclaimer: There is always the 10% where it’s not a case of cheating. For that reason, please understand this content is for general information only. For help with an individual situation, please contact us or use the live chat feature on this page.
#1 Story Time Again?
In any healthy relationship, both parties will share the stories of their day, what’s going on in their lives and so on. Typically women will share more than the men. But when she’s juggling more than one guy, it’s highly likely she’ll get her stories mixed up in due course. So, if she says things like “I’m not sure if I told you this already…” it’s likely she’s having trouble keeping up with what she’s said and to who.
#2 Defender Bender
It’s just a normal conversation, and you ask her where she is, or what she’s up to and she immediately snaps at you. Woah! Where did that come from? If she’s easily whipped up into a defensive tone, then there’s a reason for that.
And you’re not going to like it.
#3 Secret Smile
It used to be that you shared secret smiles. Nowadays, she smiles when she looks at her phone but doesn’t share with you. If you ask her what’s funny, the reply is “nothing.” That’s because the other guy is texting her and she’s not going to show you that now, is she?
#4 Not Tonight Babe
Sure, the passion dies down from time to time in any relationship. But if she’s throwing out “not tonight” excuses like Willy Wonka hands out chocolate bars, then when is the night? The answer is probably “very soon” — but unfortunately not with you.
#5 Silence Isn’t Golden
This one is harder to spot but once you’re aware of it, it’s glaringly obvious. Most people don’t put their phone on silent when they’re home. But if your girl suddenly seems to operate in silent mode, one reason can be that she’s screening calls. That’s so she can call back when it’s more private, and you haven’t been alerted by constant unexplained ringing.
The best way to spot these signs is to establish a baseline. Once you know what normal behaviour is, then it’s far easier to know when things aren’t right. If you suspect something is going on, please call us for help — especially if you have children!
