Signs of Infidelity - 21 Categories of Telltale Signs
By Ruth Houston
With infidelity reaching epidemic proportions, every woman should learn how to recognize the telltale signs of
infidelity. The future of your relationship could depend on your ability to spot the telltale signs of an affair in
time. In view of the rapidly rising divorce rates, and current statistics showing that 50% to 70% of men cheat on
their mates, if your husband is cheating, you can't afford to be the "last one to know."
Every woman’s personal library should contain a relationship reference book with detailed information on how to
recognize the warning signs of infidelity. "Is He Cheating On You? - 829 Telltale Signs" is a comprehensive guide
which documents practically every known cheating sign. The 800+ signs of infidelity in Is He Cheating on You? are
divided into 21 categories so you can easily locate the signs that apply to your mate. What’s unique about the
warning signs listed here is that once you know what to look for, all the signs can be easily found using only your
eyes and ears, your personal knowledge of your husband, and the information provided in the book. No special skills
or equipment are required.
Each of the 21 categories is explained below along with the number of telltale signs listed under that category.
While some women make it a point to check each of the 21 categories, others will only check the particular
categories that seem to apply to their marriage or their mate. To insure that no one overlooks an important
telltale sign, about a dozen of the signs are listed in more than one category.
“He always calls a certain female to share the special events in his life.”
This sign is listed under Telephone Tip-Offs and again under His Behavior Around Other Women.
“He starts showering you with gifts or buying you flowers for no special reason”
This sign is listed under How He Relates to You and also under Gifts.
“You find deposit slips in his possession for someone else’s bank account.”
This sign is listed under Financial Affairs as well as under Physical Evidence.
Despite the title, "Is He Cheating On You? - 829 Telltale Signs" actually contains 950 telltale signs.
Additional signs were added before the final version was printed. Readers continue to send in signs they have
personally discovered which did not appear in the book. These signs have been added to the e-book version of Is He
Cheating on You? which is sold by Booklocker.com Details on the 21 major categories of telltale signs appear below.

PHYSICAL APPEARANCE - 76 telltale signs
A man having an affair (or even thinking about having one) will want to make himself more attractive. He will
begin to enhance his appearance in some way. Be alert for changes in his wardrobe, his grooming, his body, and his
personal hygiene. These are usually the most visible signs of infidelity. If he embarks on a drastic self-induced
makeover, it’s probably not for you. More than likely he’s trying to attract or impress someone else.
HOW HE RELATES TO YOU - 70 telltale signs
The way your husband relates to you can provide many telltale signs. His involvement with another woman will
cause him to treat you differently -- even on a subconscious level. This is one of those areas where a wife can
pick up signs of infidelity that a private investigator might otherwise overlook.
CONVERSATIONAL CLUES - 70 telltale signs
What your husband chooses or refuses to talk about can alert you to his involvement in an extramarital affair.
He may mention new people, places and things, while the people, places and things he normally talks about are no
longer a part of his conversation. Even his tone of voice can be an important telltale sign.
WORK HABITS - 39 telltale signs
Work is commonly used as an excuse to account for large blocks of time away from home. Men often use their jobs
as a cover for their extramarital affairs. Your husband’s work habits will undoubtedly change as his affair
unfolds. Be on the lookout work-related telltale signs.
DAY-TO-DAY BEHAVIOR - 92 telltale signs
We are all creatures of habit. We all have a routine that we usually follow each day. A man who is cheating will
display changes of some kind in his normal patterns of behavior. Pay close attention to any deviations in your
husband’s daily routine. These deviations are telltale signs.
FINANCIAL AFFAIRS - 52 telltale signs
Affairs cost money. If your husband has a lover, he’ll want to wine her, dine her, entertain her and buy her
occasional gifts. No matter how carefully he tries to cover his tracks, sooner or later this will be reflected in
the family finances. Stay alert for financial signs of infidelity.
TRAVEL - 27 telltale signs
Your husband may not always be traveling for legitimate reasons. Even if he is, he may decide to combine
business with a little pleasure. Travel affords a cheating unfaithful husband a unique opportunity to cheat away
from prying eyes.
PERSONALITY OR BEHAVIORAL CHANGES - 36 telltale signs
Be alert for changes in your husband’s attitude, personality or behavior. Whether they are drastic or subtle,
changes of this type are often an indication of infidelity.
ABSENCES - 39 telltale signs
Affairs generally require a considerable amount of time. Since there are only 24 hours in a day, your husband’s
absences will become increasingly more frequent as he tries to steal time from other activities so he can be with
TELEPHONE TIP-OFFS - 76 telltale signs
Illicit affairs depend on repeated contact; many of which take place by phone. These telltale signs of
infidelity are relatively easy to find. Many men take the risk of calling their lovers from home or having their
lovers call them at home. Many wives (like me) discover their husband’s infidelity either directly or indirectly by
CAR CLUES - 40 telltale signs
Your husband’s (or the family) car can be a rich source of telltale signs. The glove compartment, car seats
(underneath and between), the tire well, the underside of the visor, the ashtray, the side pockets or compartments,
under the floor mats and other nooks and crannies can reveal a wealth of information.
SEX - 37 telltale signs
Be alert for any type of changes in the frequency or the quality of your sex life together. Most important of
all: If you suspect your husband of having an affair, take steps to protect yourself. Do not put yourself at risk
for HIV/AIDS, herpes or e other sexually transmitted diseases.
EATING HABITS - 31 telltale signs
This is an area that wives usually overlook when checking for telltale signs. But your husband’s eating habits
can be influenced or affected by his lover. Without even realizing it, he may develop a preference for the type of
food she eats, the way she likes her food prepared or the kind of restaurants in which she likes to eat. These are
the types of telltale signs it would never occur to him to conceal.
SMELLS AND TASTES - 21 telltale signs
Each person has his or her own unique smell or taste. You may be oblivious to it until it becomes replaced with
something else. Pay close attention if your husband smells or tastes “different,” or if something in your home or
car just doesn’t smell “right.” It may warrant closer investigation.
INVASION OF YOUR HOME - 22 telltale signs
It's not uncommon for a man who's cheating to invite his lover to his home. When this happens, it’s not unheard
of for lovers to leave personal items behind--sometimes deliberately, for an unsuspecting wife to find. You will
usually find evidence in your bedroom or bathroom if another woman has been in your home while you were away. But
telltale signs of infidelity may turn up in other areas of your home, as well.
GIFTS - 19 telltale signs
Be especially vigilant around the times of the year when gifts are usually exchanged. During the holidays and
various other times throughout the year, you may find gifts or cards hidden around your home or in the car.
Receipts or credit card bills for gifts may turn up shortly before or after Christmas and Valentine’s Day.
COMPUTER USE - 30 telltale signs
It’s common these days for a cheating husband to use e-mail to communicate with his lover. Some of the telltale
signs in this category may also be an indication of his involvement in an online or cyber affair. Don’t take this
lightly. These affairs can be as harmful to your marriage as the real thing. Though they may not involve sexual
contact, the emotional attachment can be extremely strong, and can quickly progress from cyberspace to physical
CELL PHONES AND PAGERS/BEEPERS - 28 telltale signs
Today’s technological advances make it easier for a husband to cheat on his wife. But it’s also easier for a
husband to get caught while trying to make contact or stay in touch with his lover.
PHYSICAL EVIDENCE - 32 telltale signs
Many times there’s physical evidence just waiting to be found. Check your husband’s wallet, his pants or jacket
pockets, his desk or dresser drawers, the wastepaper basket, his closet shelves, the floor in the back of his
closet, the garage, his study, filing cabinets, his workshop, his toolbox or any place else you can think of. Keep
your eyes open. You’ll be surprised at the kinds of physical evidence of infidelity you can find.
HIS BEHAVIOR AROUND OTHER WOMEN - 71 telltale signs
Studies show that a man is most likely to have an affair with someone he already knows—someone he comes in
contact with on a regular basis – a neighbor, a coworker, a family friend or business associate. If you’re
observant, you may be able to determine the identity of your husband’s lover by the way he behaves in her presence,
or by how she behaves around him.
ACCIDENTAL SLIPS-UPS OR DISCLOSURES - 57 telltale signs
Sometimes you get lucky and find out what your husband has been up to by accident, or through some strange quirk
of fate. An accidental slip-up on his part or on the part of someone else can clue you in to what’s been happening
behind your back.
