Having a partner fall head over heels for someone else is a fear shared by both men and women. It doesn’t necessarily mean they’re physically cheating on you, but sometimes emotional cheating can be just as bad.
Today, New Jersey Singles reviews the telltale warning signs your boyfriend is in love with another woman.
1. He doesn’t show any enthusiasm around you.
If your boyfriend doesn’t seem thrilled to be around you, he may be subconsciously wishing he was with the other woman. It’s hard to fake liking you when he wants to be elsewhere. Also, most guys aren’t savvy enough to pretend like they’re still happy with you when there’s someone else in the picture.
2. The small gestures are gone.
In a healthy relationship, there are small gestures couples partake in. Maybe he brings you flowers or a small treat once or twice a week just because he wants to see you smile. Whatever those gestures may be, if they stop, it could be a sign that your boyfriend has feelings for another woman. Of course, you don’t want to be too quick to overreact if this is all you’re going off of. It’s possible that he’s just under a lot of work stress.
3. He doesn’t share things anymore.
If your boyfriend is no longer eager to share important details of his day or willing to talk about anything serious, it’s possible he’s having those talks with someone else. If he’s never been willing open up to you, then this is less of a problem for you. However, if your relationship has gone from sharing everything with each other to only having superficial conversations and small talk, there may be a problem.
4. He’s less attentive to you during sex.
Let’s be honest here, a guy is not going to pass on sex. Even if he’s no longer in love with you, he’s not going to say no if you’re in the mood. However, he may not be as into it as he usually is. If your boyfriend is less concerned with trying to meet your sexual needs, that’s a bad sign for a number of reasons. If he zones out and doesn’t seem to be paying any attention to you, it’s possible that he’s thinking about the other woman.
5. He avoids making eye contact.
When you’re head over heels in love with someone, you want to look at them in the eyes as much as you can. Even if you’ve been with someone for a few years, you’re certainly not going to avoid looking at them in the eyes unless you’re up to something. If your boyfriend isn’t making an effort to make eye contact with you, it could be a sign of emotional cheating. If he’s become fixated on someone else, he won’t care about making eye contact with you. In fact, it will become hard for him to make eye contact with you, since he’ll be experiencing a bit of guilt.
How many of these signs do you see in your guy? Do you think he’s met someone else? Do you think he’s hung up on her?
