Sad but true, almost 30% of married men fall into the ‘cheating married man’ category. No matter where these men look for their prey, they exist. This means that if you are currently a single woman, there is a good chance that you will run into one of them, whether or not you are a sheep in wolves’ clothing.
Another sad fact is that women are such emotional creatures, therefore even if no woman has the initial intention of being the third party, it happens a lot in society. This is because when a woman’s emotion is at stake, it is too difficult for her to break an unhealthy relationship with a cheating married man.
With this in mind, women should be armed with knowledge on how to avoid getting into an unhealthy relationship with a married man in the first place. I say that this is a very important point to keep in mind, since the more a woman gets involved in a relationship, the less logic she has in her mind. It is true that emotion can overcome almost all of a woman’s logic. So read on to find out how to spot a married man who is cheating on you from afar, even if he tries to hide the marital situation from him.
The following are some warning signs that you are involved with, or about to become involved with, a married man:
First of all, a cheating married man is unlikely to plan in advance. The normal cover for him would be that he’s a ‘spontaneous’ guy, a flexible guy who loves to ride the spur of the moment. However, if you’re spontaneous, he always seems to have plans. This leads to the second signal which is:
He has no integrity as he always cancels plans at the last minute. No wonder you sometimes wonder whether or not he’ll show up for a date 5 minutes before the scheduled time.
Dates are usually on weekdays rather than Friday or Saturday nights. Seems to get busy on weekends and holidays like Valentine’s Day, Christmas, Easter, etc. Yeah, I’d probably make it up to you, like asking you out the day after Valentine’s Day to celebrate sooner or later.
He loves to send text messages. He returns calls, but hardly answers calls. His phone often dies unexpectedly or loses signal when he talks to you. His phone is often dead or turned off when he’s with you.
On top of all that, it seems like none of their friends or family really know their relationship exists. You probably don’t even know his real address or his work information, depending on how comfortable he is with you knowing this information about him.
Lastly, one sign to look out for, as well as all the other signs above, is that a cheating married man may seem more understanding. He may complain about you a lot less, or not at all. This is because he doesn’t see a great future with you and he also wants to make sure that he doesn’t miss out on physical contact with you. This is the reason why most extramarital affairs are usually physical in nature.
One last note, dating is a fun and wonderful experience. The risk of getting your heart broken is always there, whether or not you are dating a married man who is cheating on you. However, keep in mind that you are emotional by nature and it is completely unnecessary to take a very high risk of heartbreak by dating one of them. Stick with the available men out there.
