New relationships are very exciting, but after that newness and so-called "honeymoon period" wears off a bit, you can start to see the relationship for how it really is, without the assistance of rose-colored glasses. If you start to get a feeling that something just isn't quite right in your relationship, you might want to know about the signs your relationship is shady, which could reaffirm your suspicions that something isn't quite right, encourage you to reflect on your relationship a bit more carefully, or give you the push you need to bring up your concerns with your partner.
If things seem off, your mind can start to jump to conclusions. Just because something seems a bit strange or gives you pause doesn't automatically mean that there is truly something wrong. But recognizing some of the signs of potentially shady behavior can be an important first step in determining if something might actually be wrong or not. In some cases, it might just be that you and your partner are actually still getting to know one another, that they're going through something, or that the reason they're being a little bit shady really doesn't have anything to do with you personally. Still, addressing the behavior can help you sort things out and determine whether the two of you can move forward together or it's better for you to go your separate ways.
