Whenever statistics emerge to the number of children being raised by men who are supposed to be their fathers but are actually not, men everywhere get super jittery. A fortnight ago, some of our female readers shared tips from their ‘wealth’ of experience on how to figure out a cheating man. We promised to balance the equation, as it were. So, here goes:
She does not want to marry
For the singles, most women want a man who is willing to commit to them for life. They will drop hints if not directly ask their boyfriend what his plans for their future are. To cap it all, she is always busy. So if your woman is being dodgy whenever you bring up the topic of the future of your relationship, it may be a sign that she’s cheating on you and has other options to explore.
She is Quiet
And secretive as well. She seems unable to account for her time. The moment your woman becomes secretive in her schedule, it clearly shows that there is something she is hiding. If you find yourself knowing less about her movement, there is reason to worry.
Her diary is full
Saturdays used to be your day. Nothing was said, no plans were made; it was just assumed that you’d be spending time together. But lately, it seems something more important to her comes up each week. Your weekly dates are no longer set in stone, and everything and everyone else takes precedent over you.
If you see your quality time slowly dwindling away, it absolutely points to her waning interest in the relationship, and it could mean she has transferred her affections elsewhere, or is at least entertaining the thought. Independence is healthy, but a new-found focus on partying with her friends could mean she’s putting herself out there again and is seriously considering pulling the plug on your love.
She flirts openly
This points to larger issues of being attention-starved, having an insatiable ego, and otherwise being insecure. But more notably, if she’s comfortable batting her eyes at other people in front of you, what is she doing when you’re not there?
She Stops Caring
Women are wired to care about the smallest details about their men and relationships. She cares how many times you call and whether you make time for her. She gets angry with you when you forget those important dates in your relationship and will make a big fuss about it. So when your lady stops caring that you didn’t call and when she doesn’t throw a fit that you forgot all your special dates, then you have cause to worry.
