Relationships are full of happy moments, commitment, care but also uncertainties, betrayals, and sometimes a cheating partner. How do you recognise this?
Most people in a relationship might go through a stage where they feel cheated or betrayed. It could be at a physical, emotional or psychological level. Sometimes you know the signs and make the next move. How about times when you are so committed in love that you fail to see the truth of your relationship? How would you identify a cheating partner?
We all deserve love in our lives. A relationship that stands the test of time. You know you are giving your 100% in your relationship but how about the other person? After all, no connection works until both the partners are equally involved in making it work and last long.
It is the very first, and probably the most obvious sign that your partner is cheating on you. The sign of a healthy relationship is how comfortable the partners are about sharing details of their professional and personal lives.
Sharing makes you understand each other better. It makes your partner feel important and desired.
A cheating partner, out of guilt or to hide their deeds, starts paying you significantly more or less attention than before. Any unexplained change in behaviour is a red flag.
When a person is drifting away from you, you become more of liability for them. Anything you do or say might offend your cheating partner as they are no longer interested in analyzing your intentions.
Intimacy has a significant role to play in any relationship.
A relationship is not always about how amazing a sex-life you have. Or how physically active you are. It goes much deeper than the physicality. There are gestures like a hug, caressing, a gentle peck, patting or a simple act of holding hands which define your closeness. If you feel that there is a sudden change in the way your partner treats you, it is the time to pay attention.
When a person becomes disinterested in you without any reason, it’s apparent that he/she might have strayed. You need not to look for any more reason to move on.
Social behaviour of your partner might change drastically.
In a love relationship or marriage, the blame game is never a good sign. It shows your partner is either trying to control you or giving you a reason to move out of the relationship.
When you are in a committed relationship, you ought to do social activities together. You move in a common circle, have similar interests, attend events together. If this becomes less often, you own an explanation.
Giving space to your partner is important. But if you observe that you are no longer in your partner’s social circle, you might need to sit and have a talk about it.
If you are in a new relationship, it is easier to build a bond. Both the partners should work upon strengthening the relationship. Here are tips for a new relationship that will help you to go a long way.
Sometimes a long flourishing relationships hit rock bottom. A marriage of many years is destroyed by deeds of a cheating partner. A successful marriage is based on sharing, caring, and honesty. Don’t let your mistakes sabotage your relation.
