Infidelity: the 5 signs that should alert you in your partner

Do you suspect your partner of being unfaithful but it is more a hunch than a real observation based on evidence? Here are the signs that should really alert you, according to Johanna Rozenblum, clinical psychologist in Paris.

It’s well known: female intuition sometimes suggests certain things to us and we can easily suspect our partner of infidelity, without any real proof.

So what are the signs to look out for carefully in your partner, which should alert us to potential infidelity? Let’s take stock with Johanna Rozenblum, clinical psychologist.

An emotional distance

Does your partner, who loved physical contact, no longer even glance at you? This is one of the first telltale signs of possible infidelity, according to Johanna Rozenblum.

Inconsistencies in his speech

He explains to you that he was in one place and two days later, during a new discussion, he mentions a completely different place? Be careful with this type of changing discourse, believes Johanna Rozenblum, which can also hide something.

Unanswered calls and messages

Is your partner leaving for a business trip and no longer gives any sign of life? Do you go for long hours without responding to your messages or calls? Once again, this can happen occasionally, but we must remain vigilant if the situation, previously unusual, repeats itself.

Conflicts and reproaches galore

You didn’t argue that often and for the past few weeks it hasn’t stopped? It’s possible that “to justify his absences and his distance, the unfaithful spouse creates these incomprehensible conflicts, in order to justify his behavior and his distance which he establishes with the other” indicates the specialist.

Details that don’t mislead

Finally, if you ultimately come across ambiguous text messages or emails, the question of infidelity should no longer be ignored.

What to do in this situation?

At the moment of discovering infidelity in his partner, the cheated spouse experiences a profound upheaval. Johanna Rozenblum, however, advises confronting the person. “By confronting her with her behavior, it allows us to verbalize what we have discovered and what we feel about the relationship, so as not to play the game of lies and deception.” she believes.

Obviously, we cannot control the way in which the unfaithful spouse will react, nor even know in advance whether he or she will take responsibility for his or her behavior. “But to remain honest with yourself, and to not lose self-esteem and self-confidence, it is very important to do it anyway.” concludes the expert.
