Signs of Cheating Early in a Relationship

It can be difficult to determine whether you are a victim of infidelity. Especially at the start of a relationship, partners who are being cheated on might not know their significant other well and experience uncertainty about how to interpret their behavior. Being accused of paranoia only compounds feelings of confusion. If you suspect your partner is being unfaithful, do not suffer in silence; carefully consider what his recent actions mean, and watch to see if they continue.

Disgust

She expresses a strong disinterest in romance. Instead of eagerly inviting you to escort her to a sentimental film or bringing up your anniversary months in advance, she openly criticizes anything related to love. Behavior like this suggests that she is not interested in bonding too intimately with you, and it also might signal she is seeing someone else.

Distance

He is habitually busy and makes unending excuses to keep away. Partners who are interested in someone else might try to block their partner from their thought processes to establish distance between them. To cover up that they are gone the majority of the time, they provide you with a plethora of excuses that are great in detail but are seldom able to be verified.

Avoidance

She engages in no talk of or planning for the future. Couples who are devoted to each other and interested in maintaining their relationship will carefully consider their future together and plan on spending special moments together. A woman who is seeing someone else might become nervous or uncomfortable whenever you discuss upcoming events, preferring instead to live in the moment.

Distraction

He spends unusually lengthy amounts of time communicating via the Internet or the telephone. Infidelity often begins at home, usually in an attempt to prevent the spread of rumors that might return to the cheating victim. Watch for nervous attempts to hide online activity or short telephone conversations that are postponed until you are away and unable to overhear.

Indifference

She has a sudden and unexplained loss of interest in intimacy. This can include anything meant to bring you close to your partner, whether it be physical or emotional. Especially at the beginning of a relationship, when things are most passionate, both partners are expected to initiate activities with each other. A partner who does not go out of her way to spend time with you is probably meeting her needs elsewhere.
