I need to know how to spot a cheater.
I've been hurt before.
Some guys just can't be trusted. When learning how to spot a cheater, there are many factors to consider. Of
course, a lot of these traits are generalizations. You can meet a guy who has some of these traits, but will be
faithful. Its important to follow your heart and never convince yourself that he is better than what he
appears to be.
Our goal here is to identify cheating men before you fall in love with him. Although some of these qualities
are just guidelines, there is nothing more powerful than your own intuition. If he seems shady or dangerous to
your heart, there is an overwhelming chance that he probably is going to be a cheater.
The problem arises when this is actually something youre attracted to. Its OK to like the bad boys, but
just keep in mind how hurt youll be if he actually cheats on you.
If you're already involved and need to figure out your options, it's best that you read a lot more on this
subject. The book
How to Catch a Cheating Spouse is not only invaluable for really helping you get into the mind of a
cheater, it also helps you to really be on the look out for the little signs that we all notice but tell ourselves
they're meaningless. We found it great because not only does it help you find out for sure if he's cheating, but it
also helps you understand when your relationship is failing.
He's too flirty
There are men in this world who are exceedingly charming. They are entertaining and comfortable in any situation.
Then there are the guys who get a little too close and try a little too hard around other women. These are the guys
you need to watch out for. Even if they dont have a very impressive game, eventually someone will say yes to his
advances and now hes cheating on you.
Overly forward guys are big warning signs on how to spot a cheater and avoid him. If hes doing it in front
of you, then hes usually ten times worse when he doesnt have someone watching over him. Thats not to say
that all flirty guys cheat, but they are way ahead of their peers in the ability to go for it. And most of the time,
cheating is a game of opportunity.
If your man never puts himself in the position to have an opportunity to cheat...
Inconsistency is the best way to spot a cheater. Lets face it, most people in this world are very predictable.
You only have to know them for a very short time to get a feel for their schedule and how they react in most
situations. The moment he becomes inconsistent, either with the way he acts or thinks or treats you, you can tell
right away that somethings going on.
He's selfish or self-serving
This is a general trait that most cheaters share. If they are always tending to their needs, the bond he may
share with you might not mean so much if he gets the right kind of temptation. Keep on the lookout for any selfish
behavior early in the relationship. If you have a self-serving guy, you might also have a cheater on your hands.
He's an adventure seeker
Sorry we have to add this one. An adventure seeker is a great thing to look for in a boyfriend, it's also a
way to spot a cheater if only a potential one. Unfortunately, everything to some guys like this is a
conquest. A man who is always in search of danger or new experiences might not have a problem with infidelity
since it feeds into his quest for the forbidden.
Some guys are just hard to get a hold of. Then again, some guys dont answer their phones when they are... ahem...
busy. How good is he at answering his phone? If hes always picking up on the first ring, but some nights he
doesnt answer at all...
Speaking of his cellphone, does he turn the ringer off when he's with you or does he ignore his phone ringing
sometimes? That is a great give away on how to spot a cheater. Maybe he answers his phone, but talks in a whisper.
Another warning sign.
He's cheated before
If he left a girlfriend or wife to be with you, you can make a pretty safe bet that the same thing is going to
happen to you. This also includes if he dated anyone who was married or in a relationship. I know, that seems like
less of an infraction, but it shows that he might not put a high value on other people's feelings. If he ever
admits to cheating before, take it as a get out of jail free card. You don't need to ask how to spot a cheater,
you've already spotted him. Dont get involved with him.
So is he a cheater? What do you do now? Can you save the relationship? Once again, a brilliant book has been
written on this subject.
Should You Stay or Should You Go asks all the questions you need to consider when thinking about leaving a
shaky relationship. Maybe he did cheat on you, but is he truly sorry and willing to try to change? Weigh the pros
and cons about your man and find out if he's worth saving.
The key point in how to spot a cheater is to follow your feelings about him. Go with your raw feeling and
dont try to add any convincing in with it. You know, when you tell yourself that hes all about you and
doesnt need anyone else. Some say, "Once a cheater, always a cheater." You need to decide if he can change for you
and if he's even worth it.
