No one wants to be cheated on. It is literally one of the biggest moves of betrayal anyone can feel, so is there any way we can tell our partner is cheating before it happens?
Speaking to Daily Mail, Olga Levancuka, author of How To Be Selfish, has revealed that: "Even though spotting the person who is more likely to cheat can be tricky, there are certain subtle traits that set cheaters apart from loyal partners."
Levancuka and a fellow expert Gary Amers have shared the signs to look out for:
1. They're self-absorbed
Most cheaters tend to be narcissists meaning they are self-absorbed and lack empathy. This means he or she is more likely to cheat as the attention and admiration they will get from a new love interest will be more important than your feelings and needs.
2. They're insecure
Unfortunately their need to feel loved and have their other half's constant attention can be what leads them to cheat. They are scared that they are not good enough or that they will end up alone, which is why they will try and have a back-up plan.
3. They're greedy
People who are more likely to cheat always seem to think that the grass is greener on the other side.
4. They accuse you of cheating
Because they have the urge to cheat, they will think you are the same and will get paranoid whenever you look at someone else or give someone a compliment. What your partner sees in you, can only be a reflection of their own thoughts, behaviours and actions. Honest, reliable partners never doubt you, because they do not doubt themselves!
5. They're flirts
Cheaters often flirt with everyone, even when you are together. They get a buzz out of the flirtatious exchange as they crave the need for validation and feeling desired. If taken too far, this can lead to cheating.
6. They're deceptive
If you've caught them lying before, then you need to be careful as this indicates the extent of their moral code. Not all liars are cheaters but cheaters are always liars!!
