15 Signs Your BF-GF May Be Cheating On You

Do You Have A Feeling Your BF-GF Is Cheating On You?

You should be aware of some tell-tale warning signs. In this blog I will suggest 15 Signs to test your relationship.  If you confront your BF/GF and discover they are cheating, read this: Your BF/GF is Cheating on You…Now What?

But first…

cheating on you

Can You Relate To Angela’s Fear?

Angela’s fear of her boyfriend cheating on her led her in all the wrong directions. “I always think in my head that he’s cheating, so I want to cheat. Or if he’s ignoring me, I don’t know what else to do. Every time we fight and he doesn’t show me love, I find it somewhere else. If he ever left me my whole life would fall apart. But I never think about these consequences when I’m doing what I do. It’s like drinking and driving; people know the consequences of drinking and driving but yet do it anyways because it seems okay or it’s tempting.

Have You bf gf cheating on youBeen Hurt Like Katrina?

Katrina had her trust shattered when she was engaged. “I caught my fiance cheating on me. We had been together for 5 years and all he would tell me is that he wasn’t happy. I think when he found that other woman, he uncovered feelings that he didn’t feel with me. The worst part is it went on for one month. He always would tell me he would never do something like this to me.”

Test Your Relationship Against These 15 Signs Your Bf/Gf May Be Cheating On You.

    1. You begin to notice emotional distance between the two of you. Things just aren’t the way they used to be.
    2. Your instinct tells you he/she is being unfaithful. Deep in your heart of hearts you sense something has gone wrong with your relationship.
    3. You begin spending less time together. Your bf/gf tells you he/she doesn’t have the time for you like they used to.
    4. The one you love so much stops asking you to go out and do special things together. Your bf/gf just doesn’t have the time for you like before.
    5. They suddenly start encouraging you to spend time with other people. Their rationalization is If you spend time with other people, then I can too.
    6. There’s a distinct change in his/her schedule. They often make excuses for the extended time of running errands.
    7. There are huge blocks of time your bf/gf is secretive about. They won’t tell you where they have been.
    8. You notice suspicious computer or cell phone activity like secret texts, emails or strange websites. Many people are caught cheating because of what is on their computers or cell phones.

      Many people are caught cheating because of what is on their computers or cell phones.

    9. He/she doesn’t answer certain phone calls when you’re around. They look especially panicked when the phone rings.
    10. He/she doesn’t talk to you about all their deepest feelings anymore.
    11. They appear anxious when you’re together and want to leave, maybe they say they’re just tired. Cheating drains their emotional and physical energy because of fear they’re going to get caught or from spending a lot of their time trying to cover their tracks.
    12. You notice a sudden change in their appearance, or they have an increased concern about how they look. Your bf/gf probably has a new reason to look great, and that person is most likely the one they’re cheating with.
    13. He/she hangs around with a new best friend of the opposite sex a lot, even more than they spend time with you.
    14. Your bf/gf spends time with his/her ex, but claims nothing is happening.
    15. He/she begins to be increasingly critical of you, or blames you for cheating, even when you haven’t. This is a way of putting you on the defensive and making them feel better about what they are doing.

Don’t Ignore The Warning Signs

The above indicators are all warning signs. If you notice multiple changes in behavior, routine or personality, and not just isolated incidences, you should confront them about these signs. You should always trust first, but don’t ignore red flags.

What makes a good relationship is honesty. Click To Tweet

Be aware that you can’t always trust your “gut feeling.” Sometimes it’s just jealously and insecurity creeping in. Lexie has closing words of advice for us: “I think what makes a good relationship is honesty. You cannot lie to the other person or cheat! That will seriously ruin everything in the relationship and you might not be able to fix it after it’s happened. If anything’s wrong, tell each other and try to work it out.”

    • Sara Jenkins

      You should tell him how you feel

    • Anna

      Girl it isn’t worth it I’m the same way I’ve been with my man an for 3 years an his ex wife/baby mamma is still in the picture I used to know where she lived but now that she moved he won’t take me to drop off his kids he doesn’t answer the phone when he’s around her only texts me an when he does answer he yells at me but he’ll answer the phone around me when she calls I’m still with him they take there kids out more then he takes me out I don’t know what to do his one sister tells me he’s cheating on me an other sister an mom tell me he’s not idk but I do know the ex wide has a bf but I don’t know what to think of believe I just wanna leave sometimes to go visit my family but I can’t cuz I don’t trust him

    • Corrina Schader

      Honestly honey, the truth doesn’t matter. He may or may not be cheating on you, but in top of that he isn’t man enough to stick up for you in front of his ex and continues to allow her opinion dictate his actions. He needs to tell her, this is my woman and she is apart of my life, but he cares about her feelings more than yours. Also, he really disrespected you by staying at her place ave he doesn’t seem sorry for that either. That being said, it is not crazy to think that a man who values your feelings so little would also cheat.

  • Amanda Persaud

    Should i leave him if he treated his ex girlfriends better than me

    • fiona


    • asanda,van wyk

      Yes leave him and move on with your life

    • Josh

      My girlfriend goes out for one or two items and doesn’t come back for hours at a time what am I supposed to think? If I say anything about taking too long or what took so long she gets mad there are tail tell signs but she and everyone that has known her forever always say that’s who she is she can’t go to a store without spending at least an hour. But she knows it bothers me and dissent make the slightest attempt to change. What do I do? This is going on 4 years and we have 3 kids together

      • Delphine

        My advice is: Get to know which type of a person she really is. You can’t spend all your energy and happiness trying to act like a detective and mistrusting everything she does. You need to know who you can trust around you, or you might live quite an unhappy life.

  • John An EvaMarie Hanks

    A man should never change how he is or how he acts towards a woman he claims to love because if you truly love someone you get over the fact that something went down i know that if my wife ever cheated on me i would be angry and upset that it happened but nothing would stop me from trying to fix what ever it was that made it happen. see the easy thing about it is that when you find out someone has cheated on you and you get upset then calm down and let them know you still care and are willing to let it all go they will tell you whats wrong or what caused them to cheat and they will realize that you really do care and they will realize how truly lucky they are to have you and chances are they will never cheat on you again. but if they do cheat on you again you gotta let it go no matter how mad you are because if you truly love that person nothing and i literaly mean nothing will get hard enough to work out.. a good mother never banishes her child from outta her home when they have done wrong no matter how bad she thinks it is and its not a fact of oah she birthed that one tho because that doesnt matter its love even when you dont recieve it back thats true love. i think you should talk to him about it and confront it put it all out in the open and hear what he has to say if you truly care for him and he is cheating on you tell him how much you love him even if you dont get the love back it will show him in time how much you really do care about him and he will eventually follow your moves and do it to. and never take the thought out of your mind that he may think your cheating on him because he could think it out wrong and do something stupid because he thinks you just dont care or that your just cheating on him anyways so whay should he care. dont leave him talk to him and live your lives telling eachother everyday how much you care with your words and your actions and never stop.

  • mother hurting bad

    My boyfriend and father of two of my kids been togather for 7 years, about 4 years ago he tryed to have sex with my roomate but blew up in his face she told me what he hadtryed. My trust went down hill if he was trying to do that how much lower could he have going. I love him he is all i have other than my kids. I forgave him after a couple months. I belive he started cheating on me again, i am very jealous with him after the roommate thing. Everyday I have ask him if he is but he says things like he wouldn’t do it again becuase he saw how bad he hurt me or he would rather leave me before liveing another nightmare, or im crazy, or he will do a lie detector test. I started to belive I was crazy also and told him I should see a doctor but he said no I should talk to him. He even came to me and said he was so sorry for things that made me like this that he looks at me like him I ask him what things he was sorry for but he got a little mad. Even days when I didnt talk to him he would look me in the eye and say u really think im a cheater but really I am not and he looks so sincere. He also has said if he did cheat he would tell me. And sometimes he says im lucky he has not done that. Or I care to much or I am to sensitive. Also he gets so mad at times and says why are woman so stupid to want that so badly and that if that is what I really want he will start to be that way. And than he says I really dont know what man I have and when I do it will be to late. Help me I dont want to ruin the relationship if je is turely not.

  • mother hurting bad

    Also he says he was not always a good boyfriend but he has not done any cheating that he loves me and doesn’t see him self with any other woman. That he has lied to me in the past but not cheating just not where he was suppose to be.. geezzz im hurting so bad I had all the signs that he was cheating but no proof and no confuses. He says he thinks it is just better to leave me for my insincerity and he will be tired to keep telling me no all the time that I think to much…. I really dont know what to do I even went as far as to tell him I found a condom wraper but he said that was definitely not his but than ask me what kind of wraper it was and why I didnt come to ask him about it when I found it.. I feel like he is hideing something. I just dont no.

  • Isiakakha mundustrong

    I have been in a relationship for 1 year now and all has been well until recently when i started noticing strange behavior with my girlfriend.
    1: she doesn’t want me to pick her up from work in the evening and she would always suggest that we meet at home. Main reason is she is working late or running errands.
    2: She has made new friends at her work who she has never wanted me to know.
    3: A couple of days ago she came home passed midnight while drunk
    4: The next day she never showed up and never picked my calls

    My question to you is could these be signs that she is cheating on me?
    How do i go about this situation?

And once i was talking to him on phone and heard a girls laughing sound when i asked him who it was he didn’t react much and said that I was having hallucinations.My heart says something is wrong.

  • Griff

    OK. Here it goes. I’ll make it short and sweet. Fiancé and I have been together for 2 years. While working at a prior job, she started to have feelings for someone 10 years younger. I found out and confronted her. She said she was confused but realized she only wanted me. I gave benefit of the doubt. That was a year ago. She’s still friends with him, and I was OK with that, but about 2 months ago she started to become distant. Sits alone in chair while I sit on couch. She still texts/calls him but randomly will show me…otherwise all conversations get deleted. I’m starting to get mad and worried. Want to confront her with this but don’t want to fight? Thoughts? Suggestions?

    Hi everyone,
    Okay so my boyfriend and I have been dating for two years and a few months & it’s been pretty rocky. We met on Facebook, through mutual friends actually and we met of course & all of a sudden we just clicked, we talked and talked at a park, then went home. It was a few weeks or even months after that, he was still talking to this so called ‘best friend’ who he’s known since primary. But what made me upset was when we had a little argument today about me messaging him cause apparently it was annoying him :(. Anyways I felt like he went way too far by saying that he slept with that ‘best friend’ & knowing him he knows it gets me upset when he mentions her because he used to spend more time talking to her than me. He told me time after time, ‘Your my first, I am a virgin, I haven’t slept with any other girl! I regret it big time, I gave him my all my everything even my virginity. I knew I should’ve listened to my mum. & no he’s denying that he never did it because he must feel bad. I don’t know, I’m so upset, I don’t know what to do, I want to break up with him but I feel like I’ll regret it. I don’t know if he’s turning the truth into a lie. Please help. He also calls me weak. I guess I’m too weak to break up with him #confused&scared

  • Ashley

    Okay so me and my boyfriend have been dating since March 23rd, 2015. The 23Rd this month will be 3 Months of us being together. I just can’t stand it Becuase he gets these random mood swings where one minute he’s all happy and telling me how he loves me as I do for him. but say, the next day he gets alittle mad and upset and stuff. Also, he ignores me from time to time and usually makes up an excuse like “hey, sorry I went out to eat” or whatever. I never really go anywhere so I’m always texting him. And like today he was supposed to come over my house but he “had to go to the lake and won’t text me in a couple of hours”…. I’ve been worried that he’s cheating on me but he promised me he wouldnt. He broke that promise Becuase I made a fake kik and asked if he has a girlfriend. He said no. I was so sad 😔 he has also lied to me too before…. but I don’t know what to do! Someone please help.

  • TheHopeLine

    Hi Shawn, Thank you for reaching out to talk about what is going on. The situation you describe sounds like it could be a disaster waiting to happen. Trust your instincts and first and foremost do what you need to do to protect your daughter. She is a minor and you are her guardian and she needs your direction to help in her life choices. Although you can not ultimately be with her every minute making sure she is not having sex with boys her age…you can make sure she is in a safe environment at home. If your instincts are telling you something is going on, take control of the situation, before things progress any further.

    I need help! My bf and I have been together for two months. We clicked right away, spent hours talking on the phone, he would work eight to ten hours every night and still stay up talking to me for hours more when he got off work. Now he sleeps 12+ hours until its time to go to work, and doesn’t talk to me hardly at all when he gets off work. I’m lucky to talk to him two hours when he gets off work. He lives an hr and a half away from me too, which really makes matters worse. He stayed a few days in a row with me last week because he said they were cutting hours at work, he was supposed to leave that Tuesday night, but I walked over to my moms a couple houses down for a little bit, and when I came home, he. wasn’t expecting me to walk up the way I did, but he was outside on the phone with someone. He didn’t hang up, but he was definitely nervous. He was definitely talking to a woman. I played it cool and went inside. He then comes in and tellls me that he is leaving then. On Monday instead of Tuesday. He said he was going to drive to work and ask if they would work even though he wasn’t scheduled to work. He needed the hours or whatever. This was already a red flag to me. We then go to the grocery store before he leaves. I am also there to pick up a few things for my sister, I realize the grocery store didnt have an item that she had asked me to get so I asked to borrow his phone to call her. He took out his phone, and he was trying to hide it, but it kinda looked as if he was deleting a call in his call log before he let me use it. HUGE RED FLAG. So then we go to head back home. He hands me his phone to look at something he thought was funny on his Facebook, all of a sudden he has an incoming call…..my heart sinks! His ex gf was calling. I handed it to him and he ignored the call…he works with her so he said she was probably getting in touch with him to discuss something work related. Still, I asked why he didn’t just simply answer the phone, and I explained that if he had nothing to hide he would have done so. He said he just didn’t feel like talking to her…He is always pretty secretive with his phone. Sleeps with it right next to him or in his pant pocket. Like I previously stated, has been working a bit more and not really making time to talk on the phone like he used to. He had a day off the other day and didn’t come over. He said it is because he didn’t have gas money but I told him I would put gas in his car if he needed me to. He said okay, but as the night went on and it got later, he said he didn’t feel very good and he ended up not coming.. I am very scared.

  • Jocelyn

    Okay so I know my girlfriend is cheating on me but she doesn’t know I know…..I love her so much and I dont know what to do …..The girl she cheated on me with has a boyfriend and I just…Idk what to do

  • Guest cx

    Okay, the only ones that I can relate to are that we don’t spend as much time together anymore and that he doesn’t express his feelings as much. But the time schedule is because he works. And I believe him because he sends me his schedule (Which is written out so it’s not typed) and who he’s working with that day. And the feelings is because we never have time to do it as much because I’m always busy with band (I’m in marching season currently) and he has to work so almost everyday, we only have time to talk about how our day has been and we’ll through in on how cute we looked today or how much we love each other and it’s mainly him lol you know what. He’s probably faithful and it was just my insecurities and jealousy creeping in cx

    He shouldn’t be talkin to his ex’s smh thats what u call a cheater…. Nuff’sed “If he’s trying to open a new chapter in life with you… then why is he still on the same page with his ex’s.” Think about it :/ u
    You can’t move foward and focus on what’s behind you all the time. All in all do what feels right ♡ if ur boyfriend makes u wonder …. then he sure is up to something…

  • Stacy

    Me and my guy has been together for almost three years now and the signs of your bf/gf is cheating above are how he’s been acting. So I don’t know if it’s me or if he’s really cheating, but I feel in my heart he is. I don’t know what to do. I love him unconditionally and I’d loose it if I lost him. Any thoughts can it be fixed if he is?

  • Aaron Tang

    It’s authentic and incredible. I found my gf cheated on me by her text message. At first, I found during that time she looked especially panicked when the phone message rings, and she set a complicated password for her iPhone which is a secret to me. Once she told me her password but when I read her meeage, I found the “important message” has gone! I cared her so much and I could’t leave her. So I searched a software by google which named iMyfone Data Recovery for iPhone, it can retrieve lost message easily. Unfortunately, the result that I didn’t want to see made me sad for a long time. But I forgave her later, because everyone will make mistake inevitably, the most important thing is that she love me. That is enough.

  • Aneth

    My first love is cheating on me….I caught him several times through texts but he always get mad at me when I try to talk about the girls he is cheating with..what pains more is that he is always busy to me..but free in social networks…he has cheated not only with the girls I don’t know but also even with my friends…..what should I do…if I decide to leave me…he cries and threatening to kill himself..please help me with the advice..

  • bob

    I think my gf is cheating on me we have been together for 6 years now we never see each other as I work nights and she works mornings and afternoons and on my days of she is always baby sitting for someone we have not had sex in 6 months she says it hurts and every time I even go to do something sex related she would have a go at me and make me feel like * for even trying I don’t know what to do

  • Kaye

    Yes, leave him and ditch your friend. Neither of them respect you. Also, lying will lead to more lying.

  • Jessica

    I want to apologize in advance for whoever takes the time to read this long mess…I’m not sure if this section is for commenting to previous conversations or to ask advice on your own so I’m just going to express how I feel and maybe someone on here can help me. I think I’m just paranoid and jealous from what had happened kinda in the beginning of our relationship… uhm we had seperate phones, jobs, friends, and had been together for a year and some odd months before we had our first real relationship problem… I caught him texting and picture messaging another girl. And I honestly never exactly caught him through the phone, the messages were hidden in a secret box he had downloaded on his phone but I know there was something in it cause when I asked him to open it he (being taller than me) held it in the air where I couldnt reach it and deleted anything before I could actually see it but had later told on himself while we were arguing! And one day we had another argument just simply about who the girl was he was talking to and why he wouldnt just tell me the truth and he broke up with me and she picked him up from work and of course I don’t know what happened after that but the two of us were staying with his grandparents at the time cause we had been evicted from our apartment so by his grandparents word I wasnt aloud back until we resolved it between ourselves so I moved back in with my momma and daddy. I reacted to this girl picking him up from work by going on a date with a guy from my work and tried to just forget about my boyfriend and move on cause I couldn’t beleive he had done that. Well a year and half later here we are and he’s just been acting funny again and I dont know if its because he just started a new job and is trying to get on this new schedule or because theres another woman in the picture. Don’t judge us when I say these things I just need to mention ever detail so I ensure I get your best advice! Im pretty damaged from what happened even though it was so long ago but we’ve moved forward and told each other we’d never bring it up again. Finally back in our own place again and we only have one car and one phone that we share, after the incident we had agreed we’d share a phone until we were ready for each other to get our own again, and I take him to work every morning, come see him at lunch everyday and pick him up from work and we head home together every afternoon. And he hardly ever goes out without me anymore unless he’s going to play basketball with his friends and he still asks me everytime if i want to go with them to watch, So my question to whoever is, can I finally trust my boyfriend again? Yeah he’s a little distant when he’s playing video games and I do have to repeat myself more than I would like when we talk sometimes, but does he really have time to cheat? We pretty much spend every minute he’s not at work together but I still fear cheating even after a year and a half. I really don’t have many girlfriends to talk to because after high school they kinda got a little wild and too crazy for me so I really need advice from whoever can talk me through this. I feel like im so paranoid and wasting our life together worrying but I dont think my heart can take what it’s already gone through again. Please any advice is helpful and I just need to know if I should relax or continue to keep my gaurd up. I dont want to push him away but sometimes when I began to think about it, maybe smothering and pushing him away would be less painful then catching him talking to another girl again. And I dont know if I clarified this somewhere up there but he claimed all they did was hug when she “dropped him off” a year and a half ago but I never believed that for one second. But I left it at that just because I don’t think I couldv’e handled the truth if what he told me wasnt. Like I said we share a car, a phone, our apartment is in both of our names, and hes very affectionate but has been acting a little distant. Is he just tired of being smothered or is this nightmare repeating itself??? Please HELP! Thanks so much ladies and men.

    I’ve been with my wife for 17yrs. Back in 2009 she had a job working with a co-worker whom she talked about constantly. Come to find out, which she already knew was sleeping with every female he came into contact with. When she got pregnant they played around secretly about our child being his. In 2015 a snow storm came where my wife had to get a hotel alone in order to make it to work, after returning home for the first week she would take 3-4 showers a day. Shortly afterwards a sex video came out on fb which was uploaded around the time she was in the hotel. The video was posted by one of the guys friends and was secretly recorded though i couldnt see the womans face after 17yrs i know what my wife sounds like, not to mention my wife contracted an STD which she tried to blame me for.Outta anger i kinda hinted hust to see what kinda reaction i would get out of this guy and he’s pretty much played into it exactly like i knew ge would. My wife denies cheating so i just wanna second opinion as to what im feeling. Does this sound like shes cheated to anyone else?

  • Run

    You need to dump that dude. 25 years old living with parents, along with everything else he has done, spells loser. It appears that you are just being USED!

  • Run

    Your lying caused the relationship to go awry. Have you worked hard to fix things, instead of just expecting him to get over your lie(s)?

  • Marcos Sanchez

    My girlfriend got the bad habit of smoking marijuana well the thing is she was hanging with a not so good friend the friend accused her of trying to flirt with her boyfriend then she comes to tell me that my girlfriend/fiancé has cheated.

    Question: What are the chances it is not true what are the chances it is true

    • TruthBearer

      You need more information

  • TruthBearer

    She’s cheating dude

  • Truth Bearer

    You need to tell him exactly how you feel about him playing you like a fool and never ever let him continue to.play you again. No sex. No hugs. Nothing. Do not disrespect yourself any further.

  • TruthBearer

    Of course it’s suspicious. Nobody hides something legitimate

    I have been with my girlfriend for going on almost 10 months. She has a sort of thing where she had a family member refere her to a guy who is supposed to help get some family assets in the country, (it’s a substantial amount of money). Here’s what I do not understand though, she never gained a lawyer, or consulted a banker. So the guy she has been put into contact with has fallen in love with her. She tells me he’s a creeper and wished she never had him “help” her. I have suggested that she let me put her in touch with a trusted attorney and banker. She insists that she is fine without that, and she’s fine without the help. So as she tells me things about this guy, I see texts come in while we’re together, things like “I love you “,” I miss talking with you” , ” xoxoxo” unfortunately for me I seen a reply, reciprocating something similar to him, but insisted that she has to say things like that so she doesn’t lose her “inherited assets “. I can’t believe I’m even going to a chat room for thoughts. Also to put the icing on the cake, he sought me out on social media, asking me to contact him,because he’s in a relationship with her as well, and does not like being lied too. Her and I live together, I support her and three of her kids. Now it doesn’t seem there’s time to be unfaithful, but it doesn’t take long to meet with someone either. I appreciate your thoughts on this matter ,and opinions nevertheless.

  • Valerie

    I. Think my. Bf is being. Unfaithful.

    • carisma2006

      Why do you feel he’s being unfaithful? I have a story to tell myself. I posted it up above if you feel like reading. But I feel like he’s been cheating on me with his ex and I just don’t know what to believe right now.

  • Thomas

    I’m married one year , My husband has changed so much, like every couple we fight ,their was this one time we had a fight he went out got drunk and took drugs and kissed someone else as he says I forgave him, but recently I’ve been noticing things like his friends handing him things on the sly and he’d go the bathroom i have said it to him but he just starts saying I’m crazy and stop ruining his night, then last night I woke up I seen him delete things from his phone I asked him what he was hiding and he acted stupid . I know I’m not going crazy and I’m not seeing things .

  • Diana

    My boyfriend and I have been in a relationship for five years I am his first gf and we’ve always a had long distance relationship. in the beginning everything was perfect he would always do special things for our year anniversary he would tell me how he felt towards me deviate me songs and poems he would always be attentive but this last two years he has changed he just doesn’t seem to care about how often he sees me and if they are days we can’t see each other he doesn’t seem to mind it.whenever we go out he is not really affectionate nor does he ever seem to want to make out anymore. And I have questioned him why he isn’t the same why does he barely show affection anymore and he just states that it’s all in my head. We’ve had some pretty huge arguments and we do argue often. Idk if that has changed his way of being with? Or maybe due to the fact that I gained weight? But I ask home if he is still attracted to me if he still loves me and if there is someone else. And he always says he loves me the same and that there is none . But I still can’t help feeling that maybe he doesn’t love me anymore or that he’s cheating.

  • Jeremy

    I’m um gay, and my boyfriend has been growing more distant and hanging around his ex a lot… but his ex is one of my best friends, and I know Vincent(his ex) has a boyfriend. His boyfriend Scott, who happens to be my bestest friend ever, has voiced his concerns with Vincent possibly cheating on him. Is it possible our boyfriends are cheating with each other? There has also been an extreme decrease in the amount my boyfriend tells me he loves me…. Someone please help!

    I am really starting to believe my man who I’ve been living with for 4 months and been with for 9months isn’t over his ex and may have been cheating on me with her throughout the entire time of us being together. There was major drama that went down on New Years , unexpected drama. One of my friends is friends with my mans ex. They talked and apparently my friend ( whos name is Mike) told me he had some things that he felt I needed to know. He told me he was still involved with his ex ( Sara). My bf told me that it was all lies and that he stopped seeing her in May2016..but we made things official in April of 2016. That’s all that he admitted to. So I told Mike that if she didn’t have concrete proof that I am going to stay with my man and continue on with our relationship because I thought it was solid. Well…. she contacts me on FB to let me know of the concrete proof… at that point, me and my man were kind of over. She told me these times where they were out together and hooked up over at her apartment. She said they’d go out on their lunch breaks to hook up or just have lunch. She said that he bought her a couch and a table My man denies it and says they’ve only been friendly and they’d just talk about things going on in their lives so of course she knows about events that went on in his life. He feels that shes just mad because he chose me over her. She told me that he took her to his friends/Coworkers birthday party. She also said that there were times he’d go through her phone. All of these things had me wondering if all this were true. I don’t know how I feel about things as he hardly ever talks about her. So I’m staying for reason I don’t want to get into. Hopefully things work out, if not I have A LOT of pieces to pick up. Does anyone feel like I should be worried? Is he still in love with his ex? Should I believe him? I told her in one of her messages to me that if he ever contacts her to let me know by screenshots because it’ll have his phone number date and time of contact. Was that smart of me to request that? I gave her my number to contact me. Do you all feel that he will try and reach out to her or will he leave her alone and respect our relationship? Again he’s denied everything.

  • carisma2006

    I know this is from 3 months ago and not sure where you all are at in the relationship but my thoughts are this…..He’s lying and cheating. talk to him about things. Tell him to be completely honest with you so you can move forward but before you do that, get some evidence to prove he is cheating on you. good luck

  • carisma2006

    I think he’s chatting with someone the girlfriend wouldn’t like him talking to.

  • MCookies

    My fiancee and I have been together for 15 months and we have a handsome 5 1/2 month old son. Before the baby he was a blessing in disguise. We were friends of 5 years before we even knew that we felt the same way about each other. We got into some trouble and spent time in jail approximately 3 months. I end up having our son in jail as another result as well. Now since of release he has been staying out late. Hanging out with new friends and watching porn and on dating websites. WHAT should I do before I get married. I’m 29 and he is 26

I have gone mad and started detecting more … Found that she was having dirty chats with pics with him … Started my detection more and found out she was doing these kind of chats and works for past 5 years and was in a relationship with many …. Many guys…. Cried a lot … She was angry on me at first after hearing this news and told me to leave… I tried a lot to leave but I can’t…. Someday I started to blackmail , to make her reply my texts and was hurting her with the works she did…. She told she won’t do these kind of activities again and states that I was her only true love and rest were lusts…. My detection has gone mad and found out many more things and guys in her life….

Now I blocked her everywhere , and my exams are nearing and her thoughts killing me intermittently…. What should I do….

  • JoshR

    I’m almost certain my girlfriend is cheating on, we’ve been together almost a year but she’s started getting really distant and doing girly things, which when we started dating she would mock other girls for, and she’s stopped being clingy at all. I feel like I’m just annoying her now, even when we video call she’s always doing something else and I take second place to that. She even started dressing differently, more revealing clothing, she wears makeup now, she dyed her hair, shes getting fake nails, she started straightening her hair and whenever I bring it up she yells at me and tells me I’m trying to control her. I really love her but she won’t even stop doing things if she sees that she’s making me cry. It’s like I don’t matter. I know she’s been abused by almost all of her exes and her parents still abuse her. I don’t believe she’ll really be like this once she moves out but I don’t know what to do…

  • Don


    I really enjoyed reading your article about signs of cheating. I myself was cheated on and I feel if I had known the warning signs beforehand, I could’ve somehow prevented it from happening.

  • Keith

    I first met mine over a year ago and we had our little fights but recently something is wrong but I don’t know what it is, she has a mark on her neck and she claims it’s a bruise but it doesn’t look like one, she texts the guy who is apparently her friend but she hides her phones when texting him we don’t spend much time together like we use to, I feel so distant from her. Any advice from anyone on what I should do

  • Bob

    I went through my girlfriends phone of almost 2 years. She’s been distant and hanging out with this guy that I don’t like a lot recently. He’s known to play girls until they sleep with him. Like I was away at school or work and she didn’t tell me he was over at my house without her. Which I’m assuming by the way they were talking that they made out with minimal clothing on. Then her texts with him are sexual. I don’t know what to do. I know I shouldn’t have looked through her phone but I tried talking o her about how I feel about him and she told me that she wouldn’t ever think about doing anything like that and I have nothing to worry about. I’m just hurt and I don’t want to lose her. I was going to propose. Help.
