Nothing can hurt a relationship faster than the lack of monogamy. How did you know when you were being cheated on?

Relationships can be complicated. The complexity that comes with dating is a natural result of two people coming together to share their love in a romantic way, and unfortunately, bumps in the road tend to be unpreventable. There are many factors that can cause a relationship to get to a dark place and to be consumed with problems, with many stemming from a place of selfishness; when people consider their own needs and wants more so than the needs of the person they are in a relationship with.
It is increasingly harder for a relationship to survive when both people just are not considering the other person’s needs.
Regardless of the many areas of problems a relationship can experience, nothing seems to be the most destructive than when a relationship is no longer monogamous, or to the naiveté of one person, never was.
Cheating is usually an activity that cannot continue on with discretion. People get caught, there are usually signs, and for most women; there is a feeling in the pit of your stomach, a gut feeling indicating that you are unfortunately in a relationship with someone who is no longer committed to you or the relationship.
It is pretty safe to say that most of us have been cheated on. The way we discovered our partner’s creeping ways were signs, pivotal signs that made us begin to question our partner’s loyalty.
So what were some of the signs that you noticed?
Was it a change in demeanor? No more returned phone calls? Sexy text messages and secret emails? Or did you run into your partner’s other boo thang on Facebook due to questionable photos and comments?
What are the flags every woman should pay attention to?
