16 spiritual signs your partner is cheating

Being cheated on is possibly one of the worst things that can happen in a relationship. It’s a betrayal on so many levels.

But aside from the obvious clues that your partner is up to no good, there are a few subtle signs to look out for. That’s why I’m sharing these 16 spiritual signs your partner is cheating on you, as some are easy to overlook…

1) They’re extra attentive and sweet to you

You might not have expected this one, but if your partner starts unusually doing any of the following, it could be a sign they’re doing the dirty:

  • Buying you random gifts (when they never used to before)
  • Piling on the compliments (even though you can tell they’re exaggerated)
  • Taking you out on date nights (something they’d never suggest before)

So why would they bother to do all this if they’re secretly meeting someone else behind your back?

One word:


You’re going to come across this word a few times in this article, because believe it or not, some of the main spiritual signs your partner is cheating on you stem from a place of extreme guilt.

That’s why they’re being extra sweet. That’s why they suddenly start paying more attention to you.

They feel bad. Being nice to you alleviates that guilt and makes them feel better about themselves. For a short amount of time, that is.

Now, on the other hand, if your partner is cheating on you AND truly doesn’t care about you anymore, they may act nice just to avoid being caught.

They don’t feel bad, they just don’t want you to suspect they’re up to anything and spoil their plans.

2) They start acting distant

But acting sweet isn’t always the case.

Another spiritual sign of cheating is when your partner pulls away.

They might seem:

  • Distracted – zoning out frequently even when you’re speaking to them
  • Emotionally distant – shutting down any conversations involving feelings
  • Worried – like something is bothering them but they won’t admit what
  • Unaware – they don’t notice things about you they usually would

Most cheaters act distant for two reasons:

They are caught up in their affair and can’t think of anything else. They spend all their energy thinking about their new partner that they have none left to give to you.


They are caught up in a web of fear and guilt. Fear that they might get caught, and what consequences it would have on your relationship. Guilt about hurting and concealing something so painful from you.

In a spiritual sense, you’ll get the feeling they just aren’t present. You can tell from their energy and vibe that they aren’t the same person they were before.

3) A real psychic confirms the worst

The signs above and below will give you a good idea if your partner is cheating.

But a surefire way to know for sure is to speak with a real love advisor.

However, I know how important it is to stay away from fake “experts”.

That’s why I recommend Psychic Source. They provided me a unique insight into where my life should go, including who I was meant to be with. Having tried several online advisors, I think they’re the most caring, compassionate, and knowledgeable psychic network out there.

Not only will a genuine advisor tell you whether your partner is cheating, but they can reveal all your love possibilities.

4) They keep accusing you of cheating

This is the oldest giveaway in the book.

The cheater accusing the victim. It’s almost laughable until you understand why they do it.

The truth is:

This is just another form of gaslighting.

While they’re putting you on edge and forcing you to defend yourself from an accusation plucked from the air, they’re taking away the spotlight from their own dodgy behavior.

They might make up situations that sound ridiculous – “You were staring at the waiter for too long, is there something going on between the two of you?”.

But what they seem to forget is that their accusations scream their guilt. So if your partner repeatedly accuses you of cheating out of nowhere, it might be time to start digging a little deeper into what they’re really up to.

5) Your connection turns noticeably cold

At some point, your connection with your partner has changed.

You might not be able to pinpoint the exact date or time, but you’ll feel that things between you aren’t as they once were.

Most people in love believe they share a spiritual connection, something that’s drawn them together and that can’t be replaced with anyone else.

But if your partner has found a connection elsewhere, it’s likely the one they share with you will slowly diminish.

As tough as this might be to read, the more energy, love, and affection they give to their new partner, the less they have to give to you.

Now, that’s not to say this doesn’t happen in otherwise healthy relationships where there’s no cheating. It can and it’s common.

All couples go through ups and downs. But if you’ve been trying to warm up the connection between you, and your partner isn’t interested, it’s a sign something is up.

6) There’s a change in their libido

Quite often, when one person is playing away, they avoid having sex or any form of intimacy with their partner.

Either they’re too worn out from their steamy affair, or they feel too bad to be sexual with you. Sometimes taking a shower just isn’t enough to wash off the guilt.

But it’s not always the case.

Sometimes, the cheater feels like they should have more sex with their partner, again to cover their back.

If they’re all over you, you’re less likely to imagine them hooking up with someone else.

And not only that, they might be more up for it for their own convenience. Sneaky, I know.

But if they’re planning to head out later and spend the evening “at work” (we all know what that means) they might jump at the chance to have sex at unusual times of the day – just so you won’t expect it later when they’re busy.

7) They stop sharing details with you

Have you noticed your partner evading questions?

Maybe they only give general, vague answers, when usually they’d fill you in on the full story?

Now, instead of sharing the details of their day with you, or what they’ll be up to on the weekend trip away, they try to keep the convo short.

In the beginning, you might not notice this as a spiritual sign of cheating. You’ll just notice how dry and evasive your conversations have turned.

You may even miss the days where you’d spend an hour or so in the evenings yapping away and enjoying each other’s company.

But here’s the thing:

You’ll start to notice though once they stop telling you the exact dates and times of things.

When they no longer tell you what time they’re finishing work. Or when they’ll be back from that work trip away.

After all, what reason would they have to keep these things a secret from you?

8) Your gut feeling tells you there’s something wrong

The most important spiritual sign your partner is cheating on you comes from within.

Only you know your relationship. Only you can pick up on the otherwise unnoticeable shifts in your partner’s behavior.

And if your gut feeling tells you that they’re up to no good, you’re probably right.

Especially if you confront them, they deny it, but your gut still isn’t convinced.

The truth is, your gut is a guide. It’s not tangible but made up of your intuition, past experiences, and a desire to protect yourself, it’s something worth trusting.

And just like your gut feeling told you that getting into this relationship would be good for you, it’s time to listen when it tells you something isn’t right.

When I had a hunch that my partner was cheating on me, I reached out to Psychic Source.

Like I said earlier, the gifted spiritual advisor there really helped me see things in a whole new way. 

The thought of your partner cheating brings out a roller coaster of emotions, but this didn’t faze the psychic I spoke to at all. 

They can help you in text chat, a call or a video call and it costs much less than you might think.

9) They start taking an interest in your whereabouts

If your partner starts taking a sudden interest in what you’ll be doing later, what time you’re getting home, or which restaurant you’re headed to with your friends on Saturday night, it might be for their own benefit.

This is their way of making sure your paths don’t collide.

And it’s a pretty obvious giveaway, especially if they start requesting a rundown of your whereabouts daily.

A quick and easy way to find out if this is the case is to play them at their own game. Maybe you accidentally get the time wrong and come home early one day.

Hopefully, you’ll encounter nothing unusual, but if you do, at least you’ll know for sure if your partner is cheating on you.

10) They keep picking on your flaws

Is your partner easily irritated by the smallest things you do?

Quirks that they used to find endearing and cute about you now seem to annoy the living daylights out of them.

And you can’t understand what’s changed….why does your very existence bother them?

This is one of the toughest spiritual signs your partner is cheating on you because you realize that the love of your life doesn’t accept you as you are anymore.

The way you once felt comfortable to be unapologetically you around them – those times have gone.

So it’s natural if you feel incredibly hurt by their coldness and irritation with you.

But the truth is:

If they are cheating, their new love interest is what’s really running through their mind. When they’re annoyed at you for nothing, it’s their frustration at being stuck in this situation.

Maybe they regret what they’re doing, and lash out at you as a way of alleviating their guilt – either way it doesn’t help the situation.

11) They react defensively when you question them

It’s funny, isn’t it, how the guilty are always so quick to react defensively?

If you’ve confronted your partner and they made a song and dance about the accusation, there may be some truth in there.

Because if they were innocent, if they’ve never cheated on you, they wouldn’t need dramatics to prove their point. If anything, they’d be confused and hurt that you’d think they could do that to you.

So even if it’s not in their nature to be defensive, it’s a clear spiritual sign they’re cheating if they go overboard at just the hint of an accusation.

Be aware and watch their reactions closely when and if you bring up the subject. Unless they’re an expert in the art of deception, you will pick up on some clues that’ll indicate whether they’re being truthful or not.

(But bear in mind, if you’re always accusing them of cheating, they may have good reason to act defensively. Especially if they’re innocent but you won’t believe them).

12) They always seem quick to want to end the relationship

When you’re spiritually connected to someone, when you share a soul connection, you appreciate that your bond requires patience, love, and forgiveness, even during rocky times.

But if your partner has found love elsewhere, staying true to this commitment might not be on their priority list anymore.

You may notice that over every tiny argument or disagreement, they start bringing up threats or suggestions that the relationship isn’t working out.

Instead of trying to fix the problems between you, it seems they want out.

Now, this could be because:

  • Their feelings have changed and they genuinely feel unhappy in the relationship
  • They no longer see a future with you
  • They’re toxic and use ending the relationship as a threat to manipulate you

But it’s also a very telling spiritual sign that they’re cheating on you.

After all, why bother trying to repair this relationship when they’re already moving on to the next?

It’s important to get to the root of why they keep hinting at breaking up – it’s not fair to be threatened with it every time you disagree with them or have an argument.

13) Their mood goes up and down more times in a day than a yoyo

The truth is, having a moody partner doesn’t necessarily mean they’re cheating.

But a moody partner plus some of the signs we’ve covered today signal it’s a possibility.

You see, on a spiritual level, if your partner is doing something against their nature and you, it’s going to affect their mood. Cheating falls into that category.

So if a few of these signs have resonated with your situation, and you can confidently say your partner’s mood swings are unusual, it might be time for that dreaded conversation.

But remember:

Their moods are a reflection of how they feel about themselves more than how they feel about you.

It’s easy and natural to assume you’re the cause. But when someone is off-balance in mind, body, and soul, it’ll show in their emotions.

Especially when they’re doing something that hurts you, the relationship, and disgraces themselves.

14) They mention a certain person’s name – on more than one occasion

No one wants to hear their partner accidentally slip out another person’s name.

Whether it happens during sex, in their sleep, or over breakfast, there’s just no good time for it.

So when it does happen, it’s no wonder you’re frantically wracking your brain as to who this person is and why they’re on your partner’s mind.

And sure, it may be an accident. Maybe it’s a colleague who they’ve been working closely with or an old friend who’s recently got back in touch.

But there’s also the very real possibility that your partner is hiding something from you, especially if the name in question comes up more than once.

As annoying and hurtful as this might be though, it’s important to judge the type of relationship your partner has with this person by what they say.

If there’s extreme affection or extreme hatred towards the person in question, you may have a problem on your hands.

Yes, even if they seem to hate that person, it could be their way of masking their true feelings.

But if they only mention them in a professional sense, for example, it might just be that they’re working on an important project together and your partner is preoccupied with it.

15) Any talks about the future of your relationship have dried up

Another important spiritual sign your partner is cheating is when they no longer have an interest in a future with you.

You see, when they were invested in you and only you, their commitment was clear. Build a life together. Dream about future holidays, maybe about having kids or buying a house together one day.

But now, when mention of the future comes up, they seem hesitant. Their sentences start more with “I” rather than “we”.

They don’t commit to long-term plans.

If they’re cheating, this lack of interest in your future can happen for two reasons:

  • They plan on leaving you, potentially for their new partner
  • They know that when you find out about their affair, there’ll be no future to discuss anyway

So, even if they don’t actually want to break up with you (they just want to have their cake and eat it) they may still fear the repercussions of their affair.

And this leads them to stop imagining that you guys will be together in the long run.

16) You no longer feel secure in your relationship

And just as with your gut feeling, another spiritual sign that your partner is cheating on you is how you feel in the relationship.

If you were once content, secure, and unquestioning of your relationship, but now doubts have crept in, you’ve got to ask yourself, why?

What’s different about your partner?

What’s different about the way they treat you?

Are you feeling this way because of your own insecurities? Or is it because internally, spiritually, you’ve felt a shift in your connection with them?

Our bodies are always sending us signals. We pick up on more than we realize, from other people’s body language, tone of voice, their actions, and lack of action, sometimes.

But we also receive a lot of information through our own feelings and emotions.

So if you’ve started doubting the commitment and love of your partner, it could be for good reason.

Because even if they’ve gone to extreme lengths to conceal their affair, there’s a good chance you’ve managed to pick up on it.

The bottom line

Hopefully, the signs above will shed some light on your partner’s loyalty.

But if there’s a part of you that still wants to know more, I recommend speaking to a genuine, professional advisor.

And there’s one company that I always end up recommending; Psychic Source. Not only did they blow me away with their accurate readings, but they were also kind and understanding of my situation.

So if you’re tired of wondering about whether your partner is cheating, get in touch with a legit advisor and take your future into your own hands. I did, and I’ve never looked back since.

If you haven’t heard of Psychic Source before, it’s a site where gifted advisors help people through complicated and difficult life situations.
