Psychologist Daniel Acon has shared what he claims to be one telltale sign your partner might be cheating on you – but many people disagree with him
If you’ve ever been in a relationship where you’ve been suspicious a partner is up to no good, but you have no proof, you’ll know just how frustrating it can be.
It can be impossible to tell whether a significant other is displaying red flags, or whether you’re projecting your own insecurities from previous experiences onto your relationships.
There’s no denying it’s a minefield. One psychologist, however, claims to have one secret which could reveal your partner is cheating on you and it makes a lot of sense.
Now, we’re not suggesting you take this advice as gospel, because there’s no ‘one size fits all’ guide to relationships, it’s simply something to bear in mind if you find yourself doubting your other half’s trustworthiness.
Daniel Acon took to Instagram to share ‘one psychological secret to know if someone’s cheating on you,’ but at the beginning of the clip he warned it only works if you haven’t already broken your partner’s trust.
“Disclaimer: this only works if you haven’t broken their trust, otherwise, they might be justified about in how they feel about you,” he said.
“So if you’re dating someone and they start accusing you of cheating or they’re worried that you’re talking to other people without any evidence, it usually means that they’re cheating and talking to other people.
“They’re just worried that you’re doing the same thing. People tend to project what’s inside of them unto other people. This is some next level mind games.”
This will probably ring true for a lot of people who’ve experienced infidelity in relationships, but many people were quick to comment disagreeing with Daniel.
“I have a fear, not because I’m doing it myself but I’m scared to get hurt while I let my protection wall down,” one wrote. “And I’m definitely not proud of it either. I WISH that I didn’t had this fear.”
Another added: “Not really. What if someone has anxiety and fear of abandonment?”
