Deciphering all of the signs online boyfriend is cheating is never, ever easy. You are here, they are there and sometimes, you've never even met your online boyfriend! If you've ever been in an online relationship, picking up on signs online boyfriend is cheating is next to impossible – unless you know what to look for. I've been watching the show Catfish lately and that is exactly what inspired this post – I mean, how many of you ladies are in online relationships right now? Take a look below to make sure your online boyfriend isn't cheating!
1. He Doesn't Answer Your Phone Calls
Are you at the point where you are talking on the phone with your online boyfriend? If so, it's easier to pick up on the signs online boyfriend is cheating, especially if he won't answer your phone calls! How many times have you called him? Has he answered at all? That's a sign girls, I hate to say it. He can't be that busy all of the time right?
2. Always Too Busy to Call You
If he is busy all that time, is he too busy to call you? Does he call you at all? Ever? That's another sign girls that he could be spending time with someone 'real', instead of someone that he has committed himself to emotionally. Sometimes, when you are dating someone online, it's hard to be truthful always, but if you find the phone calls decreasing and next to nothing, he could be cheating.
3. Never Online
In the beginning of the relationship, was he always online? Was he constantly messaging you and constantly popping up? Is he never, ever online now? Is he always 'away' or just not ever showing up? It could be because he is spending his time with someone else instead of with you.
4. His Privacy Settings on Facebook
Oh, this is a big one and one that is very hard to figure out. He could have his privacy settings on Facebook set so that you don't see everything that he posts. It is very hard to figure this one out, but if you share the same friends and your friends are seeing posts that you aren't, that's a sign girls.
5. He Doesn't Text You a Lot
Sending through a quick text message doesn't take a whole lot of time does it? Are you not getting any text messages from him? Are you seeing a decrease in all of the communication? That could be because he is with someone else now, but doesn't want to end it with you. Think about it girls.
6. He Makes up Stories about Where He Was
When you finally do get a hold of him, does it take him a while to actually answer you when you question where he was? Does he often stumble over his words and stories? That could be a huge red flag that you need to watch out for when you're dealing with an online boyfriend.
7. You See Him Tagged in Pictures with Girls
Okay, so maybe he hasn't set any of his privacy settings at all and you now are seeing him tagged with 'friends' of his that are all girls. Do you see that on your newsfeed? Do you see inappropriate things? It could be a sign that he is cheating on you with people that he's met.
8. You Know None of His Friends
This is another tricky one, as most online boyfriends don't immediately introduce their friends to their 'girlfriend', especially if they haven't met them, but if your guy is typically open about who his friends are and will even call you when they are around him – but you don't get to talk to them? That's a sign girls.
9. The Feeling is Different
Finally, go with your gut! If the feeling between you two is different, talk to him about it! Figure out what the problem is, figure out where he has been spending his time and where his head is at. It might just be a conversation that has to be had, that's all.
So girls, those are all of my tips and signs that you can use to spot if your online boyfriend is cheating on you! Are you dating someone online? Are you in an online relationship? Share your experience in the comments!
