This step might sound very absurd but sometimes knowing the truth takes a lot of crazy effort if the person means a lot to you. Have you ever felt very insecure when you see your partner surrounded with many good-looking people? This happens maybe if your partner does not give you the confidence that you are good enough for them.

You can do this experiment by posting a picture in social media to see if your partner notices it in the news feed. Leave it for a few days. The test comes when you find another person who you suspect might be the third party, in their social media account who posts on the same day as you.

You will notice he or she gave a LIKE in the other person’s post and not your post which happens on the same day. We as humans see what we want to see. Our eyes see what it wants to see. Remember this.

Ever heard of this saying?  “I am leaving you for your own good. We need to end this.” Sometimes the reason behind this saying is because they do not see you as part of their future that they had initially promised you.

Someone who can imagine a future without you means they have someone else potentially in mind already. Nothing stops you if you really want it, you will make it happen. This is just a lame reason to escape from a relationship.

All relationships have ups and downs, its not about who was there when everything was good. True love is who was there when you were at the worst phase and never left you.

Bottom Line

Relationships are not easy. We hear our friends who got cheated and breakup. Sometimes, we are the ones being the victim of a cheating drama. Being honest to your partner is very important, do not hide things from them. When you bottled up problems and open up to third parties, this is where problems might arise. Keep couple problems among you and your partner. Your partner should be your soul mate and only best friend.


On the bright side, your partner might not be cheating on you but probably hiding something huge from you. He or she might not want to burden with the issue which caused some overthinking from your end. However, you need to get this clarified before causing a fuss about it, as there might be a misunderstanding for certain change in your partner’s behavior. Find time to talk it out to clear the air.

From all that happen in life, we need to understand that change is the only constant. Nothing lasts forever. We need to adapt and move on, knowing that we had tried our best too and not regretting our decisions only when it is too late. The reality is none of us are easy to be with. We all suffer from something. So when you meet someone who is willing to stay committed to understand you and actually wants to grow with you. Do not let something silly like ego and pride to ruin it.
