Do you sometimes wonder if you can trust your partner? Do they act differently, or give you reason to suspect them of being unloyal? You may be worried that your partner is lying to you about something. If this is the case, there are some signs you can look for. Read on to learn whether your partner can be trusted:
They’re Secretive With Their Phone
Is your partner very secretive with their phone? Let’s get something straight; they are entitled to their privacy. However, if they’re not letting you near their phone at all costs, you could have something to worry about. They might hide their phone when replying to a text, or answer it in another room. Either one could spell out warning signs.
You Know They’ve Lied to You Before
If your partner has lies to you before, it can be difficult to trust them again. However, just because they’re lied to you before, doesn’t mean they will again. Watch out for the same signs that were displayed the first time and dig a little deeper if you suspect anything. Click here for help deciphering whether they’re telling the truth or not.
They’re Vague When Telling Stories
Do you feel like your partner is vague when they’re telling you something? Do you feel like they skip details or that they aren’t telling you the whole truth? This could be something to worry about.
They’ve Cheated on You (or somebody else)
There’s a saying that goes, ‘once a cheater, always a cheater’. This isn’t necessarily true. Some things just happen and never happen again. However, some people are serial cheaters. If you know your partner has been a serial cheater in the past, what makes you think that they won’t do it to you?
They Accuse You of Shady Stuff
If your partner is accusing you of shady stuff, it may be because they are projecting their own guilt onto you. This happens a lot in relationships!
They’re Not Completely Open With You
Do you know that your partner isn’t completely open with you? A relationship needs total honesty to work. If you know your partner is holding back, you could be in for some trouble.
You’ve Heard Stories
Rumors go around and they aren’t necessarily true. However, if you’ve heard stories, especially from people you trust, this is a bad sign. In conjunction with the other points here, it sounds like your partner can’t be trusted.
Bear in mind that it doesn't always come down to your partner. You may have trust issues and be projecting unnecessary blame onto your partner. If that’s the case, it could be time for you to seek counseling before you ruin what you have.
If you have a real gut feeling your partner can’t be trusted, then you might have something to worry about. More often than not, your gut will be right. However, remember that it might be a problem of your own you need to sort out. Thanks for reading, see you again soon!
