Survey reveals the signs your partner is cheating on you

A new survey has revealed the signs you should be looking out for if you suspect your partner is cheating on you.

Researchers interviewed a pool of 1,000 Brits to mark the DVD release of Finding Your Feet, and identified the telltale signs that could mean someone is being unfaithful.

According to the research, the biggest sign you partner is cheating on you is if they start receiving calls and texts in the middle of the night, followed by them starting working late suddenly.

The pool also found that keeping their phone by their side and spending time with friends you haven’t met were also two big signs, with changing the passcode to their phone completing the top five.

And if you though that having an affair would make your partner colder in the bedroom, it might in fact be the opposite.

Surprisingly, researchers found that someone who is having an affair is likely to actually want more sex with their partner.

When it comes to getting the truth about their partner’s escapades, 79 per cent of people interviewed said they had no problem with going through their phone to find out if they were in fact being unfaithful.

They also interviewed people about the perceptions of cheating, and found that 81 per cent of respondents thought having an affair was much worse if you’re married than if you’re just living together, and 13 per cent thought that cheating is worse at an older age.

When it comes to forgiving their partners if they strayed, nearly half (48 per cent) said there was no way they could ever forgive their husband or wife if they had an affair, but 39 per cent of respondents said they would try to mend the relationship despite their infidelities – with 12 per cent saying they were more likely to forgive a one-night stand than a full-blown affair.

Another surprising finding is that 13 per cent of participants said they would happily ignore their partner’s cheating ways if it was making their own relationship better.
