Infidelity never leaves sweet memories.
If you’re looking for traces of future infidelity in your man, this is because he might have cheated on you before, or he’s acting weird lately.
Whichever the case, you just want concrete signs he will cheat in the future to hold on to.
You’re not to be blamed.
Trust is like a mirror; once broken, it can never remain the same way, no matter how much you try to patch it.
Also, I understand that you need to prepare yourself in advance (that’s if he has cheated before) to help you cushion the hurt of the infidelity.
That’s totally okay, especially if cheating is not your dealbreaker.
Stay with me while I take you through 6 of the signs he will cheat in the future.
6 Signs He Will Cheat In The Future
1. He doesn’t put effort into the relationship anymore
Perhaps in the beginning of the relationship, he used to meet you halfway.
He goes out of his way and makes sacrifices to please you and make you happy.
In fact, he made tremendous efforts and contributions to sustain your relationship and make it grow to its present level.
But at a point, every growth activity (read as efforts) from his end started dying down till it grounded to a halt.
He’s no longer doing anything for the relationship.
He puts zero effort into the relationship, and it’s one of the signs he will cheat in the future.
That’s if he hasn’t already started seeing another woman on the side.
Because if he’s not paying attention to you anymore, he is likely channeling his attention to someone else.
2. He still has dating apps on his phone
The essence of having dating apps on your phone is to help you meet new people, make new friends, connect with them, hang out, see if your energies and vibes match, and see if you can build a meaningful relationship from such a connection.
It’s a big red flag if your man still has dating apps on his phone when your relationship is already defined.
Perhaps both of you are already in an exclusive relationship, but somehow, he still sees the need for dating apps on his phone.
Why exactly is he still holding on to them?
Sis, there’s a high chance that he’s connecting with other people and going out on dates with them.
Or he’s still searching for a suitable match for himself.
Either way, it’s a pointer that he’ll likely cheat in the future if he’s not cheating already.
Such a sly move!
It would be best if you confronted him about the dating apps and made him see that it’s disrespectful to you and wrong for him to still be on them.
Let him delete his profile and the apps for peace to reign.
If he resists with no tangible reason, then you have your answer.
3. He’s very protective of his phone around you
Is your partner too protective of his phone around you?
Then, you have a cause for worry.
Well, perhaps he’s planning a surprise for you or has other vices that he doesn’t want you to find out about.
But you can never be too sure.
If he suddenly changes the passwords on his devices and won’t even let you get anywhere near them, you should be worried.
What’s he hiding all of a sudden?
Why can’t you access his phone and other gadgets once in a while?
I’m not saying that you should snoop on his devices, but there’s an assurance that comes with having easy access to your partner’s devices.
It erases most doubts that may arise in the course of the relationship.
Sometimes, you won’t see the need to check his devices simply because you know it’s accessible to you, and he can’t hide anything there.
But if he doesn’t give you a breather whenever you’re around his phone or other devices?
It’s one of the possible signs he will cheat in the future.
4. He’s a good liar
Perhaps you found out a bit too late that he’s a good liar.
He lies about the tiniest things, the important and unimportant things.
He tells the most outrageous lies, and it looks like the only thing he’s good at is telling lies.
For instance, he told you that he was out with his friends when you asked him, only for you to find out later that he never met them on the said day.
A healthy relationship is built on love, respect, and honesty.
Lies are toxic to any relationship and will slowly but surely reduce the level of trust in such a relationship.
I’m of the opinion that a man who genuinely loves and cares about you will always exhibit these three qualities towards you.
So, if he keeps telling lies about every other thing, he’ll probably cheat in the future and tell lies to get away with it.
5. He’s not consistent with you
If his actions with you are not consistent, then he’s unpredictable.
On some days, he’s all mushy and lovey-dovey towards you, and on some others, he acts as if you don’t exist.
Sometimes, he’s all over you, showering you with love, calls, and texts, and other times, he won’t pick up your calls or reply to your texts even if he’s online.
He blows hot and cold with you, leaving you confused and not knowing what step you’ll take that will be in the right or wrong direction.
Is this the type of relationship you found yourself in?
What a pity!
That man will likely cheat in the future if he’s not cheating already.
A man who is consistent with you will get back to you if he’s having a busy day.
A text will suffice.
It shows that he has you in mind.
6. He has cheated before
Has your man cheated before?
Maybe not on you, but on his partner(s) in his past relationship(s) before you.
If he has, never say never when it comes to him cheating in the future.
It can be a one-off situation that can be regarded as a mistake (although no infidelity is ever a mistake).
You cannot be too careful with him.
The worst-case scenario is that he has a history of cheating on his previous partners, and it’s the major reason for most of his relationship breakups.
You should be very worried if that’s the case because you’re sitting on a keg of gunpowder by being in a relationship with him.
By just being romantically involved with him, you have set yourself up for a potential heartbreak in the future.
You wanted the signs he will cheat in the future, and you have them.
Have you noticed him exhibit any or some of them?
Except cheating is not your dealbreaker, I suggest that you leave such a man.
That relationship is too toxic for you and will do you no good.
But then, the decision is solely up to you to make.
You are the one who wears the shoes and knows where it pinched the most.
