Signs of Cheating
Statistics indicate that 85% of women who feel their lover is cheating are correct and 50% of men who feel their lover is cheating are correct. If you have suspicions, consider some of the following and be as impartial as possible. Be discreet when looking for information, and even if you feel you know, consult with an investigator and/or an attorney before taking further action. Tipping off your partner about your knowledge of the affair too soon could ruin your chances of obtaining evidence that can be used in court. Adultery can be hard to prove, but it is especially difficult when the subject knows they are being watched. Be patient, use good judgment and seek professional assistance.

Working a lot of “overtime”: Your partner claims a need to stay late or work unusual hours. If your partner is paid hourly, you may notice that the paycheck doesn’t add up to all the extra hours the partner has claimed to have been working. Many people meet lovers at or through their jobs, so sudden changes in routine are legitimate cause for concern.
Unexplained Finances: partner has extra cash on hand, strange receipts or unexplained transactions on bank statements. Partner is suddenly secretive about known separate accounts or hides joint account statements. You may also want to consider reviewing your partner’s credit card bills for unusual or unmentioned transactions. (Unless you have joint accounts, it’s best to review bank and credit card statements after they have been opened by your partner, as there may be legal consequences for opening mail without permission.)
Unusual Activities/Questions: Your partner asks about your schedule more often than usual. Their clothes smell of perfume or cologne. Your partner suddenly begins showering/bathing immediately upon arriving home, or even before arriving home. Your partner starts doing or getting his/her laundry done independently. Mileage on car is high yet he/she reports only short distance errands. Your partner begins asking about separating your finances or opens a separate bank account or post office box. Friends see your partner in out of the way or uncharacteristic locations- without you. You find birth control items your partner doesn’t need or doesn’t use with you. Your partner suddenly changes his/her attitude about previously established faith beliefs, or refuses to attend services without explanation. Unusual defensiveness or secretive attitude. Uncharacteristic or sudden insistence on independent social life/time “out with friends”, especially non-mutual or unidentified “friends”.
No longer interested in sex: As years go by, many partners experience changes in their sexual activity. However, if your partner completely or substantially eliminates sex from your relationship then you should consider that there may be an affair going on.
New sexual techniques: Over the years you and your partner always had sex a particular way and now your partner wants to change things. Sometimes these desired changes are a sign the partner wants to improve the relationship – other times, it is a sign that they are learning and enjoying these techniques with someone else.
Saying “I need my space”: Your partner tells you that he/she needs space, but cannot tell you why, or gives vague complaints regarding the relationship. This could be a way for him/her to move to the next stage; separation. You have a right to question what he/she is doing with this “space”.
Unexplained use of cell phone: Your partner begins hiding the phone bill, or destroying all but the amount due sheet. Partner begins carrying and using a phone card. Suspicious or cryptic voice-mail messages. Cryptic texts on cell phone. Phone calls from you are not returned in a timely fashion. Partner leaves house or goes to other rooms to talk on the telephone. Partner begins deleting text messages and call history, but wouldn’t have bothered in the past. Partner refuses to answer certain calls without explanation, but soon thereafter finds excuse to use phone privately.
Unaccountable Hours: Your partner is not able to explain the reason why they have not been where they say they have been. When you call, they are “unavailable” at work. Credit card transaction dates/times occurred during supposed “work” hours. These are the time frames to consider scheduling surveillance.
Excessive or secretive use of the internet: The internet has become a dating tool for both men and women. It is perceived as relatively anonymous and many cheating partners are found to have used the internet to meet and communicate with lovers. Unexplained late-night or secret use of the internet, suddenly deleting e-mail messages, using new or free e-mail accounts, and frequent “disk cleanup” activity may be signs of cheating. If you notice a change in settings so that history and cookies are deleted automatically every time the computer is shut down, it is possible that your partner has something to hide. If your partner isn’t savvy enough to hide them, you may find that the web browser history list contains unusual sites (this is a record of web sites visited).
Not wearing a wedding ring: If your partner no longer wears a wedding ring, it may be an indication that they want everyone to know that they are single/unhappy. Consider your partner’s cultural background, family traditions and past habits, since wearing a wedding ring does not have the same significance to everyone.
