It is isn't always easy to tell when a significant other has been unfaithful. They may act more distant, or they may flake out on plans more often, or they may just seem more distracted than usual. What you may not realize, however, is that an unfaithful partner's texting habits can change after cheating, as well. Even if you haven't noticed a change in your SO's behavior, a partner who has cheated can inadvertently leave clues about their two-timing by the way that they communicate. Have the text conversations between you and your SO seemed off lately? Something might just be up.
So what are the texting red flags a person should look out for if they suspect their partner is cheating? To get the down-low, Elite Daily spoke to online dating expert Julie Spira and certified dating and relationship expert and founder of LoveQuest Coaching Lisa Concepcion. As Spira points out, "When your partner's in a cheating state of mind, one of the first signs of betrayal is a change in habits of cell phone use." If you suspect that infidelity is a possibility (or even if you don't), watch out for these important and very telling texting habits.
