From admitting that they’ve pranged the car to sharing happy news, your partner won’t think twice about keeping something from you, no matter how big or small it might be. They’ll see you as someone to confide in and that, in itself, is a sign of trust. If your partner often tells white lies or regularly keeps things from you, like if you find out that they didn’t go to the shops when they said they did, for example, then they could be cheating on you.
However, there might be a reasonable explanation for it all; that’s where communication comes in. If they’re not forthright or become defensive during your conversation, then it would give you grounds to suspect they’re being unfaithful. If the contrary is true, then your partner is likely being loyal to you.
It will be obvious if your partner is trying to force feelings of love and affection on you. It would also be plain to see if their feelings towards you were inconsistent. If your partner’s feelings towards you don’t change, then it’s likely they’re staying loyal to you, claims Chris Armstrong, the founder of Maze of Love (a relationship coaching company). Their feelings towards you also won’t be forced, instead, they’ll be almost second-nature to them.
If someone is cheating on you, then they’ll likely have one foot in, one foot out of the relationship. This is representative of a person who is ok being in a relationship with you but is looking for something else in the meantime.
If they’re not present and in the moment with you, then it’s likely they’re seeing someone else, according to Marline Francois-Madden, a psychotherapist and CEO of Hearts Empowerment Counselling Centre. She also claims that the sign of a truly faithful partner is someone who is invested in coming up with great date night ideas or making plans for just the two of you, for example.
Another thing to consider is arguments. Someone who is unfaithful will be looking for any excuse to leave the relationship. If your partner is committed to solving a problem or is willing to talk about an issue you have, then they actually want things to work.
Seeing through problems in a relationship isn’t always easy. If your partner didn’t want to be with you, or found what they wanted elsewhere, they wouldn’t bother trying to get over that hurdle with you.
A healthy relationship doesn’t involve keeping secrets from one another. If your partner is sharing their worries and insecurities, without any prompting from yourself, then they’re wanting to stay emotionally connected to you. By doing this, your partner is opening themselves up to you because they want you to be a part of their lives.
If you’re finding that your partner is making themselves emotionally unavailable, then have a conversation about it. If you find out that they’re keeping secrets from you, or are hiding text messages or are jumpy when the phone rings, for example, then you’d have reason to believe that they could be cheating on you. But if they’re open and honest with you, even down to letting you use their phone if yours is unavailable, for instance, then they’re likely being faithful to you.
Whether this be in public or just between yourselves, someone who is comfortable and secure in a relationship will feel trusting enough to express their emotions and be affectionate with you. The red flag usually starts when a partner starts withholding affection and isn’t interested in opening up to you emotionally, suggests Laurel House, a celebrity dating and relationship coach.
If your partner doesn’t wish to connect with you in this way anymore, then it could be a sign that they’re connecting with someone else on this level instead. So if your partner is still affectionate towards you and is open about their feelings and emotions, then you can rest assured that they probably aren’t cheating on you.
If they’re defensive about you speaking to another woman or man, because they’re scared that you might run off with them, then it’s likely that they, themselves, are cheating on you instead. However, if your partner is perfectly comfortable watching you speaking to another person, then this means that they trust you and it’s a healthy sign in a relationship.
It suggests that they’re secure and satisfied with everything that’s going on, so there’s no need for them to go looking for that elsewhere, hence why it’s a sign that your partner is being completely faithful to you.<
