This is a sneaky one but oftentimes when someone is cheating on you they'll do whatever it takes to hide their tracks. This can include showering more often, to get off any unfamiliar scents, wearing a lot more cologne or perfume, or even buying themselves a whole new scent.
Getting cheated on is one of the most devastating and damaging things that can happen in a person's life. It can lead to emotional distress, anxiety, depression, an increase in risk-taking behavior and actual physical pain. A partner's infidelity can even change our brain chemistry.
Also known as micro-cheating, this falls under the umbrella of emotional infidelity and refers to small, seemingly insignificant things that a person can do that, while not explicitly unfaithful, can carry with them the hint of infidelity.
People can cheat on someone they love due to neglect, commitment or self-esteem issues, lack of intimacy, or even revenge. A person who cheated once will likely cheat again, but this is not true for everyone. Infidelity doesn't signify the end of a relationship; a couple can repair their relationship after an affair.
They feel unlovable
Some people cheat repeatedly due to their own insecurities and a deep-seated fear that they are unlovable. They never challenge themselves to be vulnerable enough to truly experience a connection to another person.
In its simplest form, the affair usually reaches its end when one person has had enough. This person can either be one of the betraying partners or their spouses. In some cases, the affair ends once it's discovered. One partner may give the other partner an ultimatum- if they don't end the affair, the marriage is over.
Even those affairs that seem to be going really well often end in a breakup. Affairs don't usually last, and even if a serious or committed relationship comes out of an affair, it is unlikely to be sustainable and thriving for very long.
Here, an affair can be a healthy act. It may reflect an unconscious or semi-conscious awareness of a desire to become more alive, to grow. That is, an affair can provide feelings of affirmation and restore vitality, and can activate courage to leave the marriage when doing so is the healthiest path.
