Sign 1: Drastic change in appearance. If your man has never been one for the gym or if you normally have to persuade him not to commit the fashion crime that is socks with sandals and then, out of nowhere, he starts pumping iron every day and his interest is suddenly piqued when Gok Wan appears on TV, you have a problem.
Sign 2: He spends less and less time with you. He's always got this meeting to attend, that business trip to go on, he's up to his eyeballs with extra work recently and has to be home late...
Sign 3: He's very secretive with his phone and laptop and has a password for everything. If he's uncharacteristically private with his things, he has something to hide .
Sign 4: You find unexplained receipts or bank statements or if he is suddenly more reluctant to spend as much money as before. It's possible that he's flashing the cash to impress his new lover.
Sign 5: His behavior towards you changes in one of two ways: He either snaps at any given moment and is keen to start a fight or he starts showering you with gifts and being uncommonly nice - a typical way of responding to guilt.
Sign 6: If your partner is not into music or has a very specific musical taste, a sudden change in his tastes may indicate that there is someone else. This can also apply to new hobbies or activities that have come up out of nowhere.
Sign 7: Your partner will make mistakes with his memories. For example, he may mention a film you haven't seen together, a comment made by someone that you have never heard or talk about a TV program you have never watched together.
Sign 8: If your sex life has changed recently this could also be a sign of a possible affair. Men who cheat feel invigorated by having a lover so they will want to have more sex, though often not with their partner.
Sing 9: Be aware of body language. Learning how to know when your partner is lying to you will give you an idea of when he's really 'out with his friends'. He will try and maintain eye contact as much as possible and may have facial expressions that don't match his body language.

Sign 10: Any question will seem to his as a third degree questioning. Though you may ask him how his day went, he will answer defensively if you ask more detailed questions about what he's been doing. He may also try to make you believe you are being paranoid.
