9 Signs He Will Cheat In The Future

9 Signs He Will Cheat In The Future

Are you in search of signs he will cheat in the future?

Then, he must have cheated on you in the past, or he’s acting weird, and you’re suspicious of what’s happening with him.

Infidelity breaks the heart into a million tiny little pieces.

Even if cheating is not your deal breaker, there’s a deep type of chest pain that comes with knowing that your man cheated.

You feel unloved and unwanted and that you’re not enough for him.

I think infidelity should be the greatest breach of trust in relationships, and you know what they say about trust.

Once it’s broken, it can never be the same again, no matter how much you try to patch it.

Without further ado, let’s jump right into the signs he will cheat in the future.

The signs will help you confirm your suspicions or open your eyes to angles you didn’t know before about cheating.

9 Signs He Will Cheat In The Future

1. His friends are philanderers and serial cheats

Signs he will cheat in the future

“Show me your friends, and I’ll tell you who you are.”

“Bad company corrupts good manners.”

No truer words have been said than these.

One of the signs he will cheat in the future is if most of the people he associates with – his friends are serial cheats and philanderers.

Even if he’s not cheating now or thinking of cheating, such friends will talk and cajole him into cheating one day.

I know that not everyone breaks and caves into pressure from friends, but you can’t speak for anyone but yourself.

If your man has surrounded himself with people who cheat, expect him to cheat on you someday.

2. He tells lies a lot

Signs he will cheat in the future
Are you dating a man who tells lies a lot?

Or maybe he recently started telling lies.

A healthy relationship is built on love, honesty, and trust.

Lies are a no-no if you want to build a stable relationship.

Have you found that he lies randomly that he is at a location and finds out later that he isn’t.

He tells you he’s out with his friends, only for you to find out later that no such hangout took place.

He says he’s going on a work trip and goes away for some days, and you discover later that his workplace never had any trip scheduled.

He’s so smooth at these lies that you believe him only to find out later that he lied.

He’s a good liar, and that’s a toxic trait.

You don’t even expect him to be loyal to you or your relationship.

If your man is telling lies, and you know it, you can’t trust him.

It can be a pointer to the possibility that he will cheat in the future.

3. He’s still active on dating sites

Signs he will cheat in the future
What’s the purpose of dating sites?

It is essentially to meet and connect with new people, hang out with them, go on dates, and see if your energies match.

From there, you check the possibility of being in a romantic relationship with them.

So, what’s your man, who’s in a relationship with you (I said to remind you in case you’ve forgotten), still doing on dating sites?

He’s even active on them.

Understandably, you both met on one of such sites, and the apps are just lying around on his phone, serving no purpose anymore.

But his being active is a call for concern on your part.

If he’s not meeting, connecting with, and dating someone else from such a site already, he will in the future.

He wants to eat his cake and still have it.

Will you let him?

It’s left for you to take action and stop the handshake from extending beyond the elbow.

It’s a great disrespect to you and your relationship.

Confront him on this issue and tell him to deactivate his account(s) and delete those apps and sites from his phone.

He has you already.

What else is he looking for?

His response will tell you everything you need to know about your stand in his life.

4. He’s constantly trying to gaslight you

Signs he will cheat in the future
Gaslighting s
imply put is emotional abuse.

A man who will cheat in the future will try to control you and how you view things.

He’ll twist facts and truths so much to the point that you begin to doubt yourself and your reality.

He’s messing with your mental health to have power and control over you.

Add telling lies and denying things you’re sure of to the mix.

Such a disaster!

Can you relate to this?

I have one advice for you.


Save yourself from his grasp unless you want him to mess up your emotional health and cause you serious mental damage.

5. Your relationship with him is a secret

Signs he will cheat in the future
If your man has kept your relationship with him a secret all this while, he’ll likely cheat in the future.

He tells you that he’s a private person and doesn’t want people to know about his business, and he says that that’s the reason he’s keeping your relationship a secret.

He even asks you to do the same.

He might have met your loved ones, but you’ve never met anyone close to or related to him.

Not his friends, parents, siblings, or even work colleagues.


Sis, are you sure you’re not dating yourself?

It’s a big red flag.

If he’s not cheating already, he’ll still cheat in the future.

He might have even told you that by keeping the relationship a secret, he was protecting it, and you believed him.

A relationship is not a secret cult.

He’s probably seeing someone else or planning to do so in the future.

Tell him that if he’s serious about you, he should take you to meet the people who are important to him.

Watch his reaction and how the relationship goes from there.

6. He believes in polygamy

Signs he will cheat in the future
One of the most obvious signs he will cheat in the future is that he believes in polygamy.

He’s of the school of thought that one woman is not enough for a man, and he has always been vocal about these obnoxious beliefs of his.

Sis, you’re simply sitting on a keg of gunpowder.

Not only will this type of guy cheat on you, but he’ll not show any remorse for his actions because he believes that he’s not doing anything wrong.

7. He is a repentant playboy

Well, change is the only constant thing in life, and yes, some people genuinely change, but others pretend to.

If your boyfriend was once a notable playboy who sowed his wild oats wildly, there is still a tendency for him to relapse and go back to being a playboy again.

Even though he claims that you changed him and that he has everything with you, if his past still sits between you like the elephant in the room, then you should be worried.

The thought of your relationship being a part of his playbook tricks may even assail you.

They say that you can take a pig out of the mud, but you can’t take the mud from the pig.

This may be true in the case of your repentant playboy boyfriend.

8. He defends cheating men on social media

“Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks,” says the Holy Book.

Have you observed your boyfriend defending cheating men on social media?

Then, this is a pointer that your guy sees nothing wrong in, and he may cheat on you in the future.

It is funny how the things we say or do mirror what’s in our hearts and even our tendencies.

You should pay attention to the signs whether or not he claims he is just joking around.

Similarly, if his dad cheated on his mom and he sees nothing wrong in it, then watch it! 

He will cheat without remorse in the future.

9. He has poor boundaries

Signs he will cheat in the future
Solid boundaries help a lot and go a long way to curtail how much we can take from other people.

If your man has poor boundaries, he’s susceptible to cheating in the future.

Add that to his having many ladies around.

Perhaps he works in a female-dominated industry.

The combination is a ticking time bomb that’s waiting to explode.

If he has poor boundaries and is constantly surrounded by women who are not related to him, he might resort to flirting with those of them who don’t mind.

And even if you find out and complain about it, he’ll say that you’re overreacting and refer to it as ‘harmless flirting.’

From harmless flirting, he’ll want to try out the dirty things he says with one or some of these ladies.

And so it starts.

Whenever the issue of infidelity is brought up, no one wishes for it to happen to them, irrespective of whether or not cheating is their deal breaker.

Knowing that you’re not enough for your partner can break your spirit.

The signs listed above will help you understand what’s happening with your partner and may help you tackle those issues on time to prevent the worst (cheating) from happening.
