Most women fear being cheated on. What if I told you it is needless to fear when you understand your man? This is how to know he will never cheat on you.
1. You Didn’t ‘Snatch’ Him From Anyone
As much as I hate stereotypes, this one tilts towards being the truth more than it does towards being a lie.
Usually, men who were ‘snatched’ from another woman go on to cheat in their new relationship.
The reason this happens is simple: if you could snatch them, it means their values aren’t well-rooted. And as long as it remains that way, another woman will be able to snatch him from you.
If you are sure you didn’t snatch him, then ease your mind. He will not cheat on you.
2. He Isn’t Needy
By not being needy, I mean he isn’t a people pleaser. He doesn’t go out of his way to make people happy.
Essentially, most people pleasers have a validation problem. Since they can’t find a way to validate themselves, they turn to seek validation from other people.
For men, the validation comes from having sex with someone else most of the time. He doesn’t feel good about himself, so he turns to another woman to get that feeling.
While this strategy works for some time, the effects are usually not sustained.
Does your man strike you as needy and anxious? Then he might cheat on you. Does he strike you as very confident? Then he will never cheat on you.
3. He Has Boundaries
Men who have taut boundaries may be difficult to deal with sometimes. But the truth is, his boundaries are a good thing. They indicate that he has a deep sense of self-respect. And for men, self-respect is everything.
If he respects himself, he will respect you, and he will respect your relationship.
A man who respects his relationship is a loyal man on every ground. He will put away anything and anyone who attempts to step in and mess things up in that relationship. He will never cheat on you.
4. He Talks about His Vulnerabilities
This is a strong indicator that he is not a needy man. Needy men usually fear being vulnerable because their minds interpret it to be a sign of weakness.
Whereas strong men, on the other hand, embrace vulnerability because it gives them the chance to truly be themselves.
A man’s vulnerability also means he trusts you. And trust is a strange thing. Do you know that men who cheat have problems with trust? In the same way, men who don’t cheat have no problems trusting their women.
5. He Assures You
Loyal men often take out time to assure their women that nothing suspicious is going on. This is especially true for men who are busy most of the time. They sense their woman slipping into doubt and insecurity, and they take out time to soothe her.
If your man does this, you shouldn’t worry. He is not cheating on you. There is only room for worry when he does it a lot, impulsively and shallowly. This could mean something is really going on, and he is trying to mask it with a lie.
