Gone are the days when cheaters used to make dumb mistakes and get busted. These days, if a philandering fink wants to remain married, wiping the lipstick off his collar isn’t going to work for him anymore.
They have to put a lot more effort into keeping their illegitimate affairs under the wraps. Why? Because cheating isn’t for every Tom, Dick, and Harry.
I am serious. Some people can’t deal with guilt, others are really, really bad at lying; and then there are those who collapse under the stress of lies even faster than a house of cards in a windstorm.
But what about those who cheat on their partners and still get away with it. How they manage to keep their affairs a secret? Here are eight discreet rules serial cheaters follow to keep their partners in the dark about their illicit activities.
1. Stay Closed-Mouthed
According to a survey conducted by Ashley Madison, 11% participants divulged they keep their personal details (their partner’s place of work, their home address, etc.) to themselves, so their affair partner couldn’t blow their cover.
2. Use Separate Email
One of the sloppiest ways to get caught whilst having an affair is to leave a proof of it around. By creating a separate email address to communicate with an affair, serial cheaters significantly reduces the risk of getting caught.
They don’t share the new email with anyone and nor use it for anything else. To make it feel normalized, some cheaters even use such accounts to catch spam or to receive online updates.
They keep their regular email account logged in on their smartphones and or PCs, so their partner can access it without any hazard if they grow suspicious or start spying on them. They can only get busted if their significant other deploys a mobile phone tapping app.
3. Avoid Photographic Evidence
No matter the circumstances tricksters never keep photographic evidence. Even if someone else tries to take their photos they hide or cover their face.
They are very well aware of the fact that we exist in the age of social media, where internet stories get viral in a matter of minutes.
In case, they are desperate to save some hot photos, a picture vault application can come in handy for them. Some of these software look like calculators or other applications so they don’t arouse any suspicions.
Unless their partner is using a mobile phone tapping app to keep a sharp eye on them as these programs gather every information that is accessed through the target device.
3. Keep Phones Locked
A lot of cheaters keep their phones locked at all times and make sure that their other half doesn’t know the code.
But, if their phones are not secured or their partner knows the code, they create a believable explanation for why they suddenly need to secure their handheld device.
For instance, they can say their colleagues got into it and found our personal pictures or someone at work used their cell phone to send a string of text messages to anonymous people. Without a believable explanation, it is highly likely that a partner would get suspicious of them.
A love rat is aware of this and he never tries to change the password or suddenly insists on privacy. To connect with their affair, they either use another SIM card. But an advanced mobile phone tapping app can reveal the secret as these programs have the feature to send alerts on sim card change.
4. Change Affair’s Name in the Phone
Changing affair’s name in the cell phone is a simple and easy way to ditch your partner. A person won’t think too much when a member of the same sex texts or calls the cheater fairly regularly.
As a result, cheaters find it more helpful because spouses or lover do not pay much heed to such contacts.
5. Delete Messages and Browsing History
Cheaters don’t get sentimental at all. They delete all the information pertaining to the affair from the cell phone. Clearing web browser history restricts their partner from finding out about the sites related to the affair.
They apply this rule to more than just their fake email address. This includes deleting the records of hotel reservations sites, restaurant review sites where they want to take a love interest, or directions to a park where they are planning to meet.
But don’t clear entire browsing history because this will look suspicious as nobody keeps their history entirely clean. Instead, manually trash suspicious sites, lest your other half has already gathered all the filthy messages by installing a mobile phone tapping app on your device.
6. Don’t Leave a Trial
If cheaters have to pay for fancy dinners and hotels they make sure they use cash instead of credit card. Because any suspicious or questionable charges on their monthly statement can raise eye brows.
7. Have a Pre-Planned Excuse
Getting caught off-guard while cheating can be disastrous. In order to deal with this situation, cheaters always have a plan B in their pocket. It’s just an excuse that comes in handy when someone sees them on a date, or when they ran into a college friend at a bar.
More importantly, they ensure that they never get caught with their pants down or mouth open because backtracking is the worst form of exercise.
Word of Wisdom: Bear in mind, disloyalty often results in broken relationships. If you want to stay in a committed relationship, never ever cheat on your partner. Once you are caught in the act, you will never be able to rebuild trust. So if you are unhappy in a relationship, it’s better to end it because repercussions of cheating might follow you in future relationships.
