Having your partner fall in love with someone else a fear shared by both men and women. It doesn’t necessarily mean they’re cheating on you, but sometimes emotional cheating can be even worse. Here are a few signs your boyfriend doesn’t just have feelings for you.
1. HE LACKS ENTHUSIASM AROUND YOU.
If your boyfriend doesn’t seem that thrilled to be spending time with you, he may be subconsciously wishing he was somewhere else or with someone else. It’s hard to fake like you want to be with someone when you’re fixated on someone else. Also, most guys aren’t savvy enough to pretend like they’re still happy with you when there’s someone else on their mind.
In any good relationship, there are small gestures couples do for one another. Maybe he brings you flowers or a small treat once or twice a week just because. Maybe he cooks you pancakes on Saturday morning a special way just for you. 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. It’s possible he’s just getting lazy and complacent, which isn’t ideal either. However, if a guy is focused on someone else, he’s no longer thinking of little ways to make you happy
3. HE STOPS SHARING.
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 that willing to open up to you, then this is less of an issue. 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 AVOIDS EYE CONTACT WITH YOU.
When you’re head over heels in love with someone, you want to look at them as often as possible. Even if you’ve been with someone for a few years, you’re certainly not going to avoid looking at them unless something is up. 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 an effort to look into your eyes.
5. NO MORE PDA
If your boyfriend has never been a fan of PDA, don’t worry about this one, but if he’s usually down for holding hands or sharing a kiss in public and suddenly isn’t, that’s a problem. If a guy has feelings for someone else, in his mind he’s cheating on her if he’s willing to be affectionate with you, especially in public.
6. YOU SUSPECT HIM OF LYING.
If a guy falls in love with someone new, it’s only a matter of time until he starts telling lies. For the record, we guys may be lying to ourselves about having feelings for someone else, but that doesn’t change the fact that we will lie to you so that you don’t think we’re cheating on you, even if we haven’t yet. If you spot your boyfriend exhibiting tell-tale signs of lying, there’s a good chance he’s developed feelings for someone else.
