1) He Suddenly Becomes Overly Protective of His Phone

Most of us are attached to our phones and find we feel empty when it’s not with us, however, if your man becomes super protective of his phone, choosing to lock it with a password and even take it with him to the bathroom, then you know all is not quite well, and he has a few things in there he doesn’t want you to see.

2) He Grants You Unfettered Access to His Account

This man is a pro in the game and knows becoming secretive and protective of his phone will make you suspicious, so he does the opposite and instead, grants you access to his phone and social media handles.

Of course, he has nothing to fear as he’d have deleted incriminating chats or stored them some place more hidden

4) He Showers You with Affection

The guilt of his actions can make your man become a lot more affectionate and shower you with gifts.

While getting a gift from your partner is not suspicious in itself, being suddenly showered with them can be a red flag that needs looking into.

5) He Becomes More Conscious of His Appearance

Is he hitting the gym and obsessing over how he looks naked?

Your man could also be cheating if he suddenly becomes a lot more attentive of his appearance.

Being together a while can make you both become comfortable around each other, but if he’s suddenly particular about looking ‘sharp’, the way he was when you both first met, chances are he’s not doing this much prepping for you.

Your man could also seem preoccupied and distracted because someone else is filling his thoughts.
