Suspect your partner is cheating on you? Subtle changes can be telling signs. Host Patricia Wu and guest therapist Ryan Heapy dive into Psychology Today’s sneaky tricks cheaters use to hide affairs on this “What’s Trending” segment.

They Introduce the Other Person

The article says sometimes cheaters will introduce the person they’re having an affair with to their partner. This is more common than people realize because the other person can often be someone from the partners circle like a neighbor, a friend, or a coworker.

They Lock All Technology

Phones are a tricky subject because everyone’s behaviors are different. The digital age can make establishing trust more difficult, so it’s important to communicate with your partner about boundaries that work for both of you.

Trust Your Gut

At the end of the day trust is the foundation of relationships, so small acts alone may not be something to read too much into. Ryan says most affairs that have been uncovered come out of people’s instincts. People often start looking for secrets when somethings missing from the relationship that maybe used to be there.
