He suddenly takes a keen interest in his appearance

It may be possible that he is just trying to boost his self-esteem but then if you notice he likes to dress smarter when going somewhere without you compared to how he dresses when with you, this is a sign that should not be ignored. He might be doing this to impress someone else.

He needs a lot more privacy

If there were no secrets between the two of you at the beginning of the relationship and now you start to feel like he is shutting you out, there is a problem. Also, if he was okay with sharing his passwords but suddenly changes them and always puts the phone away from you, this is another red flag. It indicates there are things he doesn't want you to find out. And it could be a sign that he is cheating or about to cheat on you.

A change in spending habits

When he is cheating, you will notice a change in his financial practices. If you see that he is unable to account for a lot of money spent, it could be that he is spending it on the other woman. As he tries to impress someone else, he will buy gifts and take her on dates. He is not going to show you the receipts, so pick this as another red flag.

He accuses you of cheating for no apparent reason

Did you know that people tend to blame others for what they are doing? If you notice that your spouse is always suspecting you of cheating for no apparent reason, this is a sign that guilt is eating them up, and they are looking for something to make you look bad to justify their actions.

He lies to you over and over

A cheater's best friend is dishonesty. A man who lies to you about his whereabouts or who he is with; won't tell you how he is spending money or texting on the phone. This kind of man is not to be trusted, and these could be signs that he is cheating on you. If you notice nervousness and the tendency to over-share details more than necessary when you ask him a question, know that he is not honest. Sometimes he will turn things around and get upset with you to divert the matter, so pick this sign and know that he is up to something.

There are many signs to tell that he is cheating on you, and it is up to you to decide how you will deal with the issue. Try to put your emotions and fears on the side when investigating to avoid ruining your relationship because of paranoia. However, if your gut keeps telling you that something is up, don't ignore it.
