Certain signs of infidelity can expose a cheating mate on Christmas Day. Knowing what to look for is the key. Look for one or more of the telltale signs below if you think your partner may be having an affair.
Opening a suspicious gift in private – If you surprise your spouse or significant other in a secluded area of your home opening a Christmas gift away from the sight of prying eyes, they have some explaining to do. Who is the gift from? Why don’t they want you to see what’s inside? Make it your business to find out.
A disappearing gift – That hidden gift you discovered days ago has disappeared from its hiding place now that Christmas Day is here. But the gift wasn’t given to you. You need to find out what happened to it and who it was given to.
A personal or ultra expensive gift from an allegedly casual friend – Your partner has received a very expensive gift, or a very personal gift (like lingerie, or a sex toy) from someone he/she told you was just an acquaintance or casual friend. There’s obviously more to this relationship than you’ve been led to believe. You need to look into exactly what’s going on between these two.
Trying to hide a Christmas gift he/she received – Christmas gifts have already been exchanged among family members, or exchanged between you and your mate. But you catch him/her trying to hide another gift that they obviously don’t want you to know about. Who is this gift from and why are trying to conceal it? Again, make it your business to find out.
Unexplained absences – Did your mate disappear on Christmas Day for a questionable length of time with no plausible explanation for where he/she has been? Maybe they snuck off to spend a little time with their secret lover for the holiday.
Trumped up reasons to leave home on Christmas Day – Did your spouse or significant other come up with a lame excuse, an unnecessary errand they had to run or some other trumped up reason to leave the family Christmas get-together? He/she may have wanted to pay a quick holiday visit to an affair partner who lives not too far away.
A Word of Caution
The Christmas Day signs of infidelity above alone are not irrefutable proof of infidelity in and of themselves. But they could be an indication that an affair may be going on. Usually when you find one sign of infidelity, there are dozens of others just waiting to be found. Knowing what to look for is the key.
If you need additional proof of infidelity to confirm that your spouse or significant other is having an affair, a good infidelity reference book like Is He Cheating on You – 829 Telltale Signs can help. It documents practically every known sign of infidelity, most of which apply to cheating women as well as cheating men.
