Best Tricks to Catch a Cheating Partner
What exactly is emotional cheating?
Unlike physical infidelity, emotional cheating is not easier to spot. Cheating is not necessarily about sharing beds; it can be guilt-free emotional bonding with someone other than your partner because you are investing a lot of time and energy into knowing this new person in your life. Here are few signs that tell you whether you are cheating on your partner emotionally or not.
#1 Enjoying the new friend's company too much
It is good to have a few friends you can count on, but it is a little dangerous if you are spending more time with a friend of the opposite sex than your love interest. Although this relationship could be completely platonic but if you feel awkward mentioning this to your partner, chances are that you are falling for this new friend.
#2 Always want to be in touch!
Quite understandably, your newfound friendship may have started on a genuine connect basis, but if you are often disappointed or hurt if he/she doesn’t stay in touch with you, you are certainly spinning the web of emotional turmoil for yourself. You will sooner or later realise that you are leading a dual life: on one hand, balancing your ‘actual’ love life, and on the other making a constant effort to stay in touch with your new friend.
#3 Conflicting emotions
If you feel drawn towards the new person in your life, you will undoubtedly have a thumping conflict of emotions. This will leave you confused and you will try to avoid any sort of confrontation. Your interest in talking to your partner will diminish and you will look for excuses to avoid talking/meeting him/her. This will make you feel guilty but you will end up sliding this emotion under the covers and keep away from it for as long as possible.
#4 Spotting flaws in your partner
You are most likely to spot flaws in the person you are in a relationship with because you have a new addiction. You compare both of them so as to know who is a better wooer. This way you will end up destroying your relationship even though your partner is just perfect. You will try to convince yourself that your partner is not paying you enough attention just because you are getting ample from the new priority in your life.
As exciting and enticing as this new brewing relationship may sound, it could leave scars in your heart. We will say, you should reflect upon a few things on time or you will unnecessarily entangle yourself in first emotional infidelity and then physical infidelity.
