Frequently Asked Questions

Their inner growth, self-esteem, and how they cope with shame or their imposture nature could also play a role. People with low self-esteem, intuition, and immaturity would justify their act of cheating by denying and blaming it on their partner. However, those with high maturity levels, self-esteem and who know how to deal with shame healthily can admit and even apologize for their wiles.

2. How do cheaters behave?

Coming home late, giving lame excuses, showing random new interests, and hooking their mobiles wherever they go, could be some possible behavioral traits for cheaters. Moreover, they do not share their secrets, use prevarication tactics, mix up your name with another name, distance themselves from you, try to justify their deception or hoax, and shut you down or even criticize you for being protective.

3. What are the moral implications of cheating?

Being cheated upon by someone who means the world to you can leave deep scars on the mind. It may lead to feelings of pain, guilt, remorse, frustration, and despair.
