No one wants to go through the pain of being cheated on and everyone must wonder, at some point in time, could it happen to me? There can, of course, be no way to be 100% sure that it won’t happen, but there are some signs that can tell you it is unlikely to happen, so check out these eight signs that you have nothing to be worrying about:
1. He has a good track record
It’s no guarantee, but if he hasn’t cheated before, then he’s less likely to do it now. Guys can get into the habit of cheating and the more they do it, the easier it gets for them, so, if he has no history of cheating at all, then it’s probably just not in his nature.
2. You are working towards common goals
It’s good if your guy has independence, but it’s also important that you are working towards common goals. If you have made plans together and are striving for common goals, then he is less likely to throw all that away for a quick fling on the side.
3. He’s happy at home
There is no excuse for cheating, it’s wrong, but there are often underlying reasons behind a man, or a woman, being unfaithful. If your man is comfortable in his own home and you obviously enjoy being together, then he’s not going to want to lose that. A sense of security and belonging is important to both genders and you can usually tell if that’s missing.
4. You know that you have no secrets
Another good sign is if you know that you are keeping no secrets from one another. When a man is an open book and shares everything with you, then you can relax a little and be more confident that he will not cheat.
5. He only has eyes for you
If his eyes are not constantly roving, when you are out with him and he seems to only have eyes for you, then you can be confident that he’s not on the lookout for alternatives. You can’t expect a man never to look at a drop-dead-gorgeous girl in a low cut top, but that’s very different from eyeing every girl that walks by.
6. He has never disappeared without explanation
It’s not so much that you need to know his every movement, but that he shouldn’t keep it a secret from you where he’s been. If he’s always open and honest about where he’s been, with whom and what he’s been doing, then you will have no reason to suspect that he’s telling anything else but the truth.
7. He hangs out with the good guys
You can tell a lot about a guy from the company that he keeps. Firstly, if he’s being faithful, then he won’t hide his friends from you and, secondly, if he mixes with a good bunch of guys, then they will encourage him to follow the right path anyway.
8. Trust your heart and your instincts
It’s amazing how people can look back on a relationship and realise, after the event, that all the bad signs were there, but they chose to ignore them. Sometimes people tend to push thoughts that their partners might be cheating to the back of their minds, because it’s a difficult thing to deal with. But deep down, you probably know, so place your trust in your gut instincts, as well as your man.
