how would you if your partner is cheating on you

my friend broke up with her boyfriend of three years because she found out that the guy is seeing another girl for about a year already. she never noticed the guy was cheating on her. so how would you know if your partner is cheating on you or not?

Usually when someone is cheating there may be a change in their behavior and how they act towards the girlfriend/boyfriend. There can be a change in intimacy or the partner may become non caring or even mean. Either way if this guy is cheating she did the right thing to leave him. If he is cheating on her he really doesn't love her and she will find someone else that can appreciate and love her. That's just my opinion.

yes, i agree. i asked my friend if there was any change in his behavior that she noticed, she said there were some subtle changes but she chose to ignore it and she just trusted the guy to be telling her the truth =(

It is when the boyfriend is giving you less time and less enthusiastic about the relationship. He will most likely take things for granted in a sense that what is important to you, may not be important to him anymore. He won't let you read his cellphone. He has two cellphones, one for you and one for his new girl. He comes home late at night without telling you where he went. Those are just some of the signs. Keep your guard up!

It takes a lot of instinct and a lot of willpower to confirm your instinct to know if your partner is cheating on you.

I'm not really sure about that since some people are good in hiding things. I think if they don't answer the phone most of the time or won't reply on your messages (if they are not at work), that could be a sign. Or if there are times that you would love to go out with them and they don't seem to be available. Well of course there could be a lot of reasons why they are busy but they should have let you know ahead of time.

people act subconciously different.

If it has been confirmed that my partner has been cheating on me for such a long time then there is no point in trying to hold on to her. It is better to leave her and move ahead in life. I know it is not easy, it will give me a lot of pain but that is the only solution. I would never even consider giving her a second chance because I am a human being, I am not a Saint and I have self respect.
