  • You're now engaging in less/none sexual activity in the bedroom. This is a very worrying sign! As all humans need to have their sexual desires satisfied (disregarding asexual individuals), chances are that your man has his desires fulfilled with someone else.
  • He hides his phone. If your husband/boyfriend takes time and effort to hide his phone, or you don't know the password and are restricted access to it, this is a huge cause for concern. Anyone being faithful wouldn't have an issue allowing their partner to check out their phone for a few minutes.

  • Changes in dress/style habits. Is your man all of a sudden taking far longer to get himself ready in the morning or for a certain event? Is he wearing more cologne or putting in more effort than usual? If yes, then it's worth thinking deeper about the security of your relationship and whether you're being deceived.
