Is your partner really protective of their phone?
If they’ve started shielding their screens from you, it could be a sign that something’s wrong.
Melissa Ferrari, a psychotherapist and couples therapist, believes secretiveness could be a red flag.
It could suggest that your other half is distracted or less interested in your relationship.
The relationships expert told Whimn: “A phone that is suddenly placed facedown after being years with someone would be a possible red flag.
“The truth is that by the time the phone is switched to silent and face down means that you have likely missed numerous red flags upon the journey.
“A big one is your partner seeming more distracted, less interested in you, kind of like they are ‘elsewhere’.
“Another would be your partner being less available psychologically and physically to you, and the one that people don’t often consider is if your partner begins doing things less as a couple and more independent of you.”
While changes in your partner’s behaviour could be cause for concern, they aren’t always anything to worry about.
It’s possible that paranoia could be getting the better of you.
Before confronting your partner, look for other signs they are distancing themselves.
Changes in your relationship, such as a fluctuation in sex drive, could be another red flag.
Melissa added: “If you have intuited that your partner may be being unfaithful, and you also see some other behaviours that connect with that thought, then it may be a good time to investigate further or even challenge them as to what is going on.”
