Is he straight up lying to you?

If you've ever been cheated on, it's something you'll do almost anything to avoid happening again. When your partner cheats on you, it's a powerful betrayal that can shake the foundation of any relationship and chip away at your self-esteem.

Unfortunately, there are no guarantees when it comes to faithfulness. You may think that your partner would never, ever cheat on you, and then they do or say something that convinces you they're cheating; you feel everything start to crumble.

For many women, emotional cheating is almost as bad as the physical act of cheating. When your bae is confiding and sharing more with another woman than they do with you, it hurts. Intimacy isn't just being close with your bodies; you can be intimate with a closeness of the heart.

When you become suspicious that someone is cheating on you, you look for signs, clues, and analyze what they say, hoping to find any evidence that will confirm or absolutely negate your suspicions. 

But getting proof of an affair or of a string of hookups can be tricky, and even when you get answers, it doesn't necessarily make you feel better. In fact, confirmation can make you feel even worse. You wonder what you could have done differently, and what's wrong with you that your partner had to go somewhere else.

The thing is, cheating is rarely about the person being cheated on and more about the cheater.

In astrology, some zodiac signs are more likely to cheat than others, but that doesn't mean that if their sign is likely to cheat, they will, nor does it mean that if their sign isn't known for cheating, they'll be true blue and faithful.

While there's no way to protect your relationship or yourself against being cheated on, you can become aware of what the stars believe are clues to watch out for. In addition, if you know how you would react to temptation or being cheated on, knowing the signs of cheating can help prepare you for the emotional trauma of being cheated on or being the cheater.

Here are the subtle things he says when he's cheating on you, based on his zodiac sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19): "You're not good enough for me."

If an Aries cheats, it's probably because they want more excitement in the relationship. They like to go out, do things and have adventures, and if you can't keep up with them, they'll be inclined to go somewhere else.

If all of a sudden he's pointing out all the things you do wrong and you have no idea where it came from, he's probably trying to make himself believe that you just aren't a good fit for him, so it makes sense that he'd turn to someone else. Since Aries people can be kind of blunt, it can really hurt when they don't deny that they're cheating and make it your problem.

Taurus people rarely cheat and would only cheat if they fully felt in love with someone else. They're not into random hookups and the chances are good that they'll marry the person they cheated on you with. If they cheat on you, sorry to say, but your relationship is probably done.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20): "Hey, don't touch my phone or my computer."

Since Geminis need constant intellectual stimulation, they're much more likely to cheat emotionally than physically. They won't want you to discover their emotional cheating, so their texts, emails, instant messages, and chat rooms will all be off limits to you. And don't even bother asking for their passwords; the last thing they want is for you to have access to their secret world.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22): "She's just a friend."

Cancer individuals aren't natural cheaters and they don't do it easily, but if sensitive Cancer isn't feeling the love at home, they'll look for it somewhere else. Think about how your relationship started out as friends — it's the Cancer's way.

Leo (July 23 - August 22): "F*ck, I found some gray hairs in my beard."

Leos don't cheat very often — who needs that drama? But they absolutely hate the idea of growing old and can act out their midlife crisis with a younger version of their partner. They definitely still love you, they just don't love getting those AARP (American Association of Retired Persons) letters.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22): "I've never seen that woman before in my life."

Virgos are discreet and mysterious when they're not having an affair, and even worse when they are. It's very difficult to catch a Virgo cheating, and most of the time they have to confess to it before anyone finds out the truth.

Libra (September 23 - October 22): "I'm planning on staying married forever."

Libras are great at cheating; in fact, they're so good that they can keep both relationships going at the same time. They believe in marriage very strongly and are unlikely to get a divorce, but they just try to lay low so nobody knows what's going on or asks any questions. Libras don't just stray once — they are serial cheaters.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21): "I want a divorce."

Scorpios don't cheat, which is surprising since they're so passionate and sensual. They take love and marriage very seriously, and cheating doesn't make sense to them. But if their partner no longer excites them physically or intellectually, they'll end the relationship before they move on.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21): "It didn't mean anything."

First off, it's really difficult to get a Sagittarius to commit in the first place, so it's not that surprising that they love to cheat — it's like a game for them. A new person? A new experience is difficult for a Sagittarius to resist. The problem is, because they don't get that cheating is bad, they can't stop themselves from talking about it.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19): "Why are you so upset? You know I love you."

Capricorns don't cheat all the time, but if they get caught cheating, they'll rationalize it. Although this will seem harsh, Capricorns aren't above cheating to get something they feel they need, like a step up in their career or the admiration they're not getting at home.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18): "I didn't know what I was doing."

What's that old saying about Aquarius people? I know, it's "Once they've found their bae, they won't stray." They're another sign that's more likely to emotionally cheat than physically cheat. They're so unorthodox and intellectually curious that they truly could be emotionally cheating and not even know it. At some point, they really do need to stop sending those flirty texts before it leads to something they don't want.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20): "I had this dream where I was having sex with an alien."

Pisces have vivid imaginations, but sometimes their fantasies aren't magical enough for them. Because of their sharp minds, they can get very elaborate in their cheating ways — everything from unique locations to elaborate excuses. Sometimes they may be confessing to something but doing it in such a creative way that you don't even realize it.
