One of the biggest fears about being in a relationship is the chance of being cheated on. Sure, there are a few things you can do to steer clear a partner who is more likely to cheat — you can be a good judge of character, or pick someone with a squeaky clean record. Ultimately though, there are no guarantees. Fortunately for you, if you're paying attention, there are a few tell tale signs he's going to cheat that you definitely shouldn't ignore.
Infidelity is the problem no one wants to face, but one that, unfortunately, is on the rise. A 2015 statistic estimates that an astounding 41 percent of married couples have cheated in some way or another (a stat that doesn't even take into account dating couples or those in long-term unmarried relationships.) Living in a society that gives such easy access to sites like Ashley Madison and allows people to guard their privacy like never before, it's not surprising to see these stats on the rise. No matter how you and your partner define cheating — flirty texts, watching porn, or a full on physical affair — it's easier than ever to cheat. And, since all it takes is a simple "delete text message" button, it's also easier than ever to hide it.
One of the best things you can do to safeguard yourself against an unfaithful partner is to know the signs of a cheater before he cheats. Besides saving you a lot of heartache in the long run, knowing these signs will allow you to face the issue head on and move the eff on.
