Not every guy will showcase the same attitude after they have cheated. However, because human beings are mostly emotional, the first thing you are likely going to notice, especially if he truly loves you is that he will be remorseful and uneasy around you. But this does not happen all the time. Some men can be tough and good at covering their tracks. Such men are likely going to act normal and cool. But even for such, there is a way to find out. Do you want to know how? Just stick around for a while.
These Signs Will Make You Know If Your Partner Has Cheated
1. He will become too secretive
What do you expect? A guy who knows he has ‘skeletons in his cupboard’ will do his best to hide it. Most guys are usually open with their girlfriends when everything is rosy and cool. They share their deepest secrets and hide nothing from each other. But a guy who is cheating on his girl will do his best to cover his tracks by changing his phone password, making and picking up calls at odd hours, concealing his schedule or whereabouts, and so on.
2. Rushes to have a shower any time he comes home
Men who cheat on their partners are often betrayed by the smell of their mistress. To avoid this, he is likely going to dodge past you when he comes back from work. He is also likely going to hurridly take a shower to get rid of any hint. However, if he had made a culture of taking his bath after work, there may be nothing to bother about.
3. Becomes too confident all of a sudden and always wants to prove a point
‘Smart’ Guys know how to camouflage into being the perfect partner. They spice things up in the relationship to keep you from suspecting anything close to their escapades. They have the perfect excuse for anything unusual and are quick to pacify their partners in case of any hurt. For such persons, you need to be very careful and read between the lines. You may be shocked at what you will eventually find.
4. May become remorseful
Guys who have not made a habit of cheating are likely going to feel very sorry and remorseful when this occurs. Some may find it difficult to confess but would want to take responsibility for their action. As a result, they may always appear moody and guilty. They may begin to pay more attention to their partner and do everything to sustain their trust. Also, they are likely going to cut every means of communication with the person they cheated on their partner with. This could be by blocking her on every social media platform and ignoring her messages and calls.

5. Suddenly becomes concerned about his outlook
A sudden change in appearance is another factor that could tell whether or not a guy is cheating. If your man was a bit carefree bout his appearance but suddenly begins to tighten every loosed end, there is a possibility he wants to impress someone, and it’s likely not you.
6. Becomes less interested in conversing with you
After cheating on their partner, some men are likely going to become less conversational. His responses will become short, pointed, and precise. He could decide to bury his head in work to keep his attention from you. Also, he could decide to piss you off whenever you try to get into a conversation with him by acting angry and tough for no good reason.
7. He begins to compare you with others
If your man begins to compare you with others, then he might have met someone that he feels is better. For instance, he may ask you to change your hair, perfume preference, outfit, and so on. Also, he may push you to try new things in bed when you are intimate.
8. Working late and keeping late nights
In the real sense, there is no direct link between working longer hours and cheating on a partner. However, some men have cited ‘working late’ to cover up for cheating on their partners. Meanwhile, not every man who works late is cheating on his partner. But when it becomes too frequent, it may become suspicious.
9. When He is less concerned about being intimate with you
There is a possibility that your partner’s sexual interest will drop if he begins to cheat on you. The reason is simple. He is getting all the gratification he wants outside and he will most likely come back home tired. It is difficult for men to be consistently intimate with two women or more and have a stable relationship.
10. Accuses you of cheating
This is often used as a defense mechanism. It is also a deflecting mechanism to shift attention from his actions. Instead of bearing the guilt and consequences of his actions, a cheating partner may deliberately become suspicious about your moves and question the people who come around you.
