6. Your partner might be thinking of cheating on you.
An unhealthy curiosity toward your personal life might actually be a warning sign for you as it can be a projection of your partner’s deep thoughts. In other words, if a person suspects that something inappropriate is going to happen or is already happening, this person might be the one who is actually doing these inappropriate acts.
5. Your partner has trust issues.
Trust is the foundation of a healthy relationship. And how easy you find it to trust someone is greatly affected by your past experiences. So if your partner thinks that you’re lying to them, most likely they’ve been lied to or cheated on in the past.
After such a bad experience, a person usually becomes hypersensitive and any innocent gesture or word said by you can raise the alarm in their mind. In this case, your slightly-paranoid partner should understand that their snooping is connected to their own issues and not to your actions.
4. Your partner is unable to set healthy boundaries.
In every relationship, there should be boundaries, and violating them is never OK — your partner has to understand this. So if you make it clear that you respect your personal space and won’t allow anybody to invade it, your partner should accept your need for privacy, even if it’s greater than theirs.
The inability to maintain those boundaries by constantly checking your phone might be the very first sign that you’ll feel uncomfortable with this person in future. As a rule, if someone doesn’t pay attention to the simple things that are actually important for you, they will be more likely to violate the emotional, physical, or any other boundaries that you set.
3. Your partner is afraid of talking openly.
If you’ve noticed that your better half is being shady and has started checking your phone instead of expressing their feelings openly and honestly to you, this could be a sign that they’re actually hiding something.
Either it’s just simple nonsense or a real act of cheating, you can only find out if you ask them directly what’s going on. A worthy partner won’t refuse your invitation to talk and will be open to discuss whatever comes up in your relationship.
