As crappy as it may be, people cheat. Just because someone makes that ultimate betrayal though doesn’t mean they’ll fess up to it even if you ask them point blank. So if he’s thinking it’s better to deny ’til you die, here are 10 signs he cheated even if he won’t admit it.
Something just feels off.
In your gut, you know. You’re looking for concrete proof but you might never get that. Something still feels off, though, and there’s a reason for that—deep down, you know that he’s cheating. You just don’t want to fully admit it to yourself. You don’t want to face reality because you don’t want to lose him. You can’t handle the truth so you just keep living in denial.
He’s acting differently.
There are two different ways that guys act after this kind of betrayal. They either pull away and distance themselves because they’re wondering if they want to end the relationship or they’re overly attentive because they feel guilty. He might be making up for something he doesn’t want you to know about or he could be giving himself space to figure what he really wants. Either way, things just aren’t the same.
You don’t trust him.
If you’re questioning his commitment that seriously then it should tell you something. If you’re trying to go through his things, look for clues like Nancy Drew, and dissect his every story then it’s pretty damn clear that you’ve lost all sense of faith in him. He can make you try to feel crazy all he wants but if he lost your trust, he probably deserved it.
He keeps his phone under lock and key.
He doesn’t leave his phone on the table, he takes it with him when he goes to the bathroom, and it’s always on silent. He’s trying to keep you from asking questions because his cell is blowing up nonstop. Committed men are casual with their phones because they have nothing to worry about, but cheaters hold onto their cells for dear life because that’s the one thing that holds all of their secrets.
His stories keep changing.
He tells you what he’s been up to but when you question him on something, he “accidentally” forgot an intricate detail. Then you run into someone and they create another loophole in his stories. The problem is the things he tells you are stories—as in, fictional stories. The reality is he can’t keep his story straight because covering his tracks is easier said than done.
He seems to be busier than ever with no real reason for his crazy schedule.
Suddenly he’s the most popular guy in the world. Anytime you have plans, something else always seems to come up. He bails at the last minute with some lame excuse that makes you wonder where he really is. You’re not just paranoid, he’s just a bad liar because the truth is he’s busy with a girl who isn’t you.
Even his friends are acting strange around you.
They have a secret they’re trying to keep in order to honor their “bro code,” but any decent guy wants to tell you the truth. Even indecent guys don’t always make good liars. That means that if they know something, they no longer know how to act around you. They’re afraid of giving up their buddy, so even if you had a good relationship with his friends once upon a time, it’s officially awkward AF now.
He showers before sex.
He’s washing off the remnants of another woman. He doesn’t want you to smell the scent of another woman and he also feels as if he cleanses his sins away. Once upon a time, you two could just jump in the sack, but now he always has to shower first. Just ask yourself this, what’s the point in him getting clean before the two of you get dirty?
He starts picking fights with you.
He’s finding flaws in you so that he can level the playing field. If you’re doing things wrong then it makes him feel like his actions are somewhat justified, so he looks for things to get angry with you about. He sheds away his guilt by making you guilty of something too. Two wrongs don’t make a right, but it certainly makes him feel better.
He turns the confrontation around on you.
If you accuse him of cheating or even just start to question one of his stories, everything somehow ends up your fault in the end. He’s manipulating you so that every time he’s in the doghouse, you end up trading places. You’re left wondering how the conversation took a turn but somehow you’re also apologizing for whatever he’s convinced you that you’ve done wrong. Just like that, the tables have turned and you never get a real explanation so your worries about him cheating are never fully put to rest.
