Are you getting your eight to ten hours? If your partner isn’t, they could be cheating on you. IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people and the leading authority on infidelity, can reveal that your sleeping pattern could indicate that your partner is cheating on you.
A survey of over 400 married people on IllicitEncounters.com found that the majority saw changes in their sleeping pattern – some natural, some enforced – after they started having an affair.
The biggest red flag came with troubled sleep. An overwhelming 52% reported instances of troubled sleep, including waking up multiple times during the night, being unable to get to sleep, and waking up earlier than normal. Naturally, this was due to feelings guilt associated with an affair, and is particularly prevalent throughout the first month of an affair.
15% also found themselves waking up earlier, but it was of their own accord, as they used that time in the morning to message their secret tryst while their partner was fast asleep.
Meanwhile, 28% found themselves sleeping more comfortably and for longer hours as they were no longer deprived of intimacy.
The site also found that your partner’s sleeping position could be a warning sign. If your partner is cuddling up and hugging you more than usual, than they could be one of the 57% who stated that they showed extra affection to their partner in bed while they were having an affair.
On the other hand, up to 15% of respondents couldn’t bear to face their partner, and avoided sleeping in the same bed with them altogether.
The site’s spokesperson, Christian Grant, explains:
“We all have a daily routine we tend to stick to, so when there’s erratic and inexplicable changes to that routine, especially as something as important as sleep, there tends to be cause behind the effect.
“Uneasy thoughts are sure to keep some tossing and turning at night, especially in the early stages of an affair, so if you notice your partner struggling to get to sleep, constantly waking up throughout the night, or waking up before their alarm normally goes off, then something might be up.
“And if they start snuggling up to you in bed, it’s not without good reason. Ultimately, the bottom line here is to look out for behaviour that you know is out of character. Don’t dismiss it as a one-off or a weird phase – there’s no smoke without fire.”
