TikTok users also took to the comments to share their own warning signs.
“Other men messaging them good morning and good night texts,” one person wrote.
“They say they’re going to wash the car at 10:30 at night and don’t return for several hours… my ex,” another shared.
“Racing home to change or shower. Using new sayings or words. New interest in fashion. Leaves rings at home. New phone lock screen,” a user wrote.
Meanwhile, a psychologist on Instagram suggested taking note of what your partner says rather than their behaviors or facial expressions.
Daniel Acon shared a psychological secret to know if someone’s cheating on you, but started off with a disclaimer that this trick will only work if you haven’t broken your partner’s trust, “otherwise, they might be justified in how they feel about you.”
“If you’re dating someone and they start accusing you of cheating or they’re worried that you’re talking to other people without any evidence, it usually means that they’re cheating and talking to other people,” the psychologist said. “They’re just worried that you’re doing the same thing.”
Acon explained that this is something called “projection,” meaning “people tend to project what’s inside of them onto other people.”
The responses to Acon’s advice were mixed.
“This isn’t true in every case. Some people have abandonment issues and fear this and can accuse or become suspicious, but it doesn’t mean they are cheating or talking to others,” one person said.
“What about the trauma of being cheated on?” another wrote, to which Acon responded, “Absolutely, I didn’t say this was every single time.”
