How to Spot a Cheater
(According to A Paranoid)
By Meg Santibanez
There’s nothing nastier than partners-turned-cheaters-turned-worst-enemies. Now if you have that feeling that your partner is cheating, then here are some things to watch out for.
Of course, take this with a grain of salt; the list is from a self-confessed paranoid.
Hostile to lending phones
Privacy is still important even if you’re in a relationship, but if you notice your partner instantly freaking out the moment you start checking his or her phone then something’s definitely fishy.
“Sorry I have to work overtime.” When you start to hear this more than usual, then there must be something off—because he or she should make time no matter what.
New names on the radar
When your partner starts to hang out with people who you’ve never met and whose names you’ve never heard before, then maybe something is up. If he refuses to let you in on who’s who, then that’s definitely a tell-tale sign that something is definitely up.
