Can tech help you root out a cheating partner?

By Lily Asis

Anyone who has ever been cheated on in the past will know what a dreadful and devastating effect this can have. People who have been cheated on feel betrayed, crushed, and feel as though their life is crumbling around them. In addition, those who have been in a long-term relationship may also have other factors to consider, such as joint assets and children. The whole situation can cause a huge amount of stress.

One thing you do need to think about is whether your suspicions are founded or not. It could be very destructive to go in and accuse your partner of infidelity if you are not reasonably convinced, as this could destroy trust in the relationship unnecessarily. So, before you start throwing accusations around, it is worth looking at possible solutions that may give you a better idea of whether your partner is cheating.

Some Ways in Which Tech Helps

The good news is that there are various ways in which you can get a better idea of if your partner may be cheating. Modern technology is one of the solutions that can make it easier to determine whether you are simply being paranoid or there actually is something going on.

For instance, you may have noticed that your partner has been receiving a lot more calls than normal. It could be that the person calling is the person your partner is cheating with. On the other hand, the calls may be connected to something at work or a family matter. So, before you jump to any conclusions, it is worth using online tools such as a reverse telephone number lookup tool for numbers you don’t recognize. This will enable you to see who has been calling.

Another thing you may notice is that your partner is spending a huge amount of time on social media. Again, this does not necessarily mean that they are cheating, as there are plenty of people who do spend way too much time on these sites. However, if your partner has suddenly started spending a lot of time on social media, and if they are also cagey about using it while you are there, this could be a sign that they are cheating and private messaging someone else.

One of the other things to look out for is if your partner is making a lot of calls but doesn’t tend to do it in front of you. For instance, they may sneak off to the bathroom or another room that can be locked to make calls. If this is the case, you have to consider why they are making calls in secret.

Don’t Jump to Conclusion

While the above points could be indicative of infidelity, you must ensure you don’t jump to conclusions. Take into consideration other things such as whether your partner is going out more than usual without you or whether they have lost interest in intimacy. Looking at the bigger picture will give you a better idea of what may be going on.
