Subtle Physical Signs Of A Cheating Wife

Hey there, Steve here and welcome to this week’s private eye post where I’ll be covering the subtle physical signs of a cheating wife.


Look, if your woman comes home reeking of another man’s aftershave, with dishevelled clothes and she’s late with no good excuses why, it’s easy to put two and two together, right? She’s obviously cheating and has a blatant disregard whether you find out or not.


But in my experience, this hardly ever happens. Women usually begin affairs to fill a void their husbands are no longer providing for their emotional well-being. As a result, their affairs begin more slowly and build up to physical intimacy over time.


This lengthy process allows a woman to meticulously plan exactly when and where her affair’s activities can take place without her husband ever knowing. Men do the opposite. They go off in search of quick and easy sex without needing to form a connection first.


The difference in these two courses of action means it’s usually much harder to spot the woman’s physical signs of cheating. They’re much more subtle. Let’s take a look at my top four subtle physical signs of a cheating wife.

#1 Mrs Clean

Everyone knows sex leaves traces. What’s the best way to get rid of those traces? A big clean up, that’s what. And women will usually plan in a shower after the event. In our experience, there are four common ways a wife will plan this into her routine:

  1. Say they’re going to the gym, so they can shower there afterwards.
  2. Use a hotel room.
  3. Use a shower at work.
  4. Plan to return home when their husband is out and clean up at home.

So, if your wife is coming home and seems just as freshly clean as when she left in the morning, you have to wonder why.


#2 You’re getting a lot of gifts.

Cheaters typically feel guilty about their activities. And to ease their guilty conscience, they often buy their partner unexpected gifts. Her belief is that this will negate any suspicion a husband might have.


#3 Not There

Many guys love having some free time. Whether they want to indulge in a hobby, play a video game, meet up with their mates, it can feel great to have some “man-time.”

But where is she?

Her lack of physical presence can be a huge warning sign that she’s getting some elsewhere. Work is the typical excuse, and most guys simply take it at face value.


#4 They’re reluctant to make any big plans.

Thinking about a 4-week holiday to a dream destination but she’s making excuses for not booking the time off? Sure, she might be concerned about finances but if that’s not an issue then what’s holding her back?

It might just be that she doesn’t want to spend all that time away from her new love. This type of physical hesitation can seem justified for a million different reasons, but which couple in love wouldn’t want to get away for some quality time together?



It’s no secret that guys are usually much worse at spotting the signs of their wife’s affair compared with women uncovering their husband’s fling. But if you keep mentally sharp and observe her behaviour around you, it can be easy to see when things aren’t quite right.
