How will I know if my boyfriend is being faithful?
I wish I could tell you there is a definite way to know if your sweetie is cheating on you, but unfortunately there isn’t. I could tell you a list of things to watch out for, but it’s so easy to misunderstand any of those signs. Be a little cautious, but remember not to go overboard — obsessing over this kind of thing isn’t good for any relationship.
If you truly think your sweetie might be cheating, you need to be honest and talk to him. Some people get mad when asked straight up if they’re being unfaithful, but it’s really important to always talk about your feelings in a relationship. If your BF says he’s not cheating, then it’s up to you whether you believe him or not. You can look out for all the cheating ‘signs’ you want, but that doesn’t always lead to the truth.
The main thing to remember is that if your gut is telling you not to trust your sweetie, you probably shouldn’t. Relationships are built on trust, and if you have no faith in your sweetie, that isn’t a good sign, and it will only lead to a lot of fighting and sucky emotions in the future.
