Is your guy acting shady?

Discovering that your partner has cheated on you is terrible, but learning that they've been having an ongoing affair is the worst. 

You can almost accept a momentary lapse in judgment, but when a person has repeatedly cheated on you, for months or even years, you feel destroyed.

The worst part is, if you don't catch your partner in the act, you either have to confront them right away or you have slowly build evidence to confirm your suspicions.

How do you act with someone you suspect of cheating on you?

Many times, men who are having an affair get very good at hiding it, and when confronted about it, they have the ability to convince their partner that the infidelity they were imagining simply didn't happen.

When the person you love is having an affair, you start to question everything they said or did in your own relationship.

You wonder if, in the end, it's your fault that your partner strayed as if there was something you could have done or if there were signs that you missed.

No matter how skillful someone is at hiding an affair, they still will slip up. Often times, it's a question of paying attention to their behavior and reading between the lines of what they say.

Astrology teaches us so much about human behavior that it's not surprising that the zodiac sign you're born under affects the way you act when you're having an affair.

A Leo having an affair isn't going to behave the same way a Scorpio does. Astrology can also guide us on which of the signs is more likely to cheat, and which aren't.

You should never take these guides as life advice. Some actions that a cheater might do are actions that any of us might do.

So, it's important not to make any major decisions based on this information or to jump to conclusions.

Here's how he acts when he's having an affair, according to his zodiac sign.

One of the signs that an Aries man is having an affair, is if he's never up for spontaneous sex. Aries are always up for anything, especially sex, so if he's suddenly not into an unscheduled sex session, he's probably getting it somewhere else on a regular basis.

Taurus tend to be loyal and aren't the cheating type, so if he's having an affair, he's going to feel guilty about it and he'll try to explain himself a lot. He has to cover his tracks with elaborate stories about where he's been or who he's been with.

When a Gemini man is having an affair, he gets really strange about his cell phone; in fact, it's always with him no matter where he goes. If you look at it, does he freak out a little, even though you notice that his call list is completely empty, or has he suddenly changed his password and has a bunch of excuses about why he can't give it to you?

Cancers are emotional when they're not cheating, but when they are they get weirdly distracted. Having an affair for a Cancer is like riding a roller coaster: One minute he's sitting there with a big smile on his face, and the next he's almost in tears and he doesn't want to talk about it. A Cancer not wanting to talk about their feelings is because they can't share them or they'll be toast.

When a Leo is having an affair, he'll come home smelling like a new cologne. No, he won't smell like a woman's fragrance — he's too smart for that. But he'll want to cover up any scent that would be alarming to his partner. If he says he accidently spilled an entire bottle of cologne over himself, think of that as a big red flag.

Virgos are generally serial monogamists, but they don't respond well if their relationship is going through a rough patch. If a Virgo man is having an affair he's going to act guilty when you do something nice for him. He's put you in the position of being the person who's making his life miserable, so if you do something nice it forces him to think about what he's doing.

Libras are very social, and they love to have their family and friends all together. If your Libra man has started hanging out with a bunch of friends you don't know, that's a good sign that he's having an affair, especially since he hasn't made any move to include you in any of those events. If he's cheating, he doesn't want to involve anyone you know since you could call them up and expose your man in a lie.

Although Scorpios are extremely sexual, they tend to be fiercely loyal. But even those who are true blue can stray from time to time. If you come across a new email ID or Facebook suggests you may know a new account from your man, that can indicate he's having an affair. He'll want to communicate with her any way he can and without your knowledge.

Sagittarius men can be very philosophical and love talking about everything, but if your partner seems to be constantly talking about your relationship ending, that's the warning bell ringing. If he says things like, "What would you do if our relationship was over?" or "No matter what happens, I will always consider you a friend," this is him trying to get a beat on how you'd react if he left you.

Capricorns will get you presents for whichever gift-giving holiday it is, but they're not one for romantic gesture gift-giving. If your Capricorn man is suddenly buying you all kinds of gifts, it should put you on alert. Spontaneous gifts from a Capricorn might be a sign that he's being shady AF and that you need to investigate all those late nights at the office.

If an Aquarius man is constantly criticizing another person, they may be trying to get you off the scent of an affair. He's trying to make you think that they'd never fall for that person. However, Aquarians are very honest, so if they're having an affair they'll tell you about it before it goes on too long.

Pisces men are usually not very self-centered, so if yours is suddenly splurging on clothes or doing extra grooming on himself, this could be an indication that he's cheating. It's one thing if he just wants to look good, but if he's practically getting a full makeover and not consulting you about it, he may be getting his advice from someone else.
