If you are reading this article it is because you suspect your boyfriend is cheating on you. However, before you act upon it, it is important that you sit down and think about if you are in a jealous rage, or if there are clear reasons that suggest that he is maybe cheating on you. Insecurity and jealousy are the two great enemies of any relationship, so in this OneHowTo article we will give you the real signals that will let you discover how to tell if your boyfriend is cheating on you and help you to tell real infidelity from an imaginary one.

Steps to follow:

Do you know whether or not you jealous? This point, although it seems unimportant is very important when you think that your boyfriend is cheating on you. If you're compulsively jealous it will be more difficult to be objective and clearly see the signs that your partner may be unfaithful, as anything will seem proof of him cheating.

However, if you're not a suspicious person in everyday life, and you begin to notice any strange behaviour, you can analyse more clearly without letting your insecurity cloud your judgement right away.


Now wave away the ghosts of jealousy and we can go straight to the point: clear signs that your boyfriend is cheating on you or plans to do so.

First of all, suddenly and without any apparent reason your guy has become somewhat elusive. Have you noticed that lately he avoids going out with you or gives you excuses to get out of things you've arranged to do. He starts to see you less because he is always busy. If this happens for no apparent reason (he doesn't have exams, he isn't not going through a special situation at work) now is the time to be suspicious.


If your boyfriend is cheating on you his attitude towards you will change, even a little. It is possible that he may suddenly become too loving and kind or very moody overnight. Sometimes after an infidelity, they feel guilty so your guy will be adorable and charming to hide what he did.

If he's having a relationship with another girl behind your back, he may seem surly at times because he doesn't know how to handle the situation.


How quickly does he answer your calls? Does he not remember your plans? Has he stopped sharing things with you? Beware! If your relationship is not the same as before and now he doesn't communicate as much with you, these are extremely suspicious signs.


If your boyfriend looks very mysterious with his mobile, hides when he get calls, deletes messages or gets nervous when his phone rings close to you, these are clear signs that he could be cheating, or at least are flirting with someone else, so pay attention.

Has he started to like other things all of a sudden? Different types of music or have new interests out of the blue? This can be influenced by someone else's likes or a desire to change to impress someone else, so beware.


It is also important to look at your sex life to try to determine if your boyfriend is cheating on you. If you have always had an active sex life and then suddenly, for no apparent reason, he stops trying to have sex and doesn't look bothered when you want to, it's time to worry. Whether it's because he is being unfaithful or for any other reason, it is important to talk about sex with your partner sooner than later.


If he frequently starts fights with you and goes from home, this may just be an excuse to meet with someone without any questions asked. In fights, they may also talk about your relationship coming to an end, as they feel more secure because they have a secure rebound.

These signals can make you suspect quite clearly that he's cheating, and it is good to remember that men are not exactly experts in hiding deception, so they'll always slip up and we'll notice. So pay attention!
