The way things are right now in the dating world, it can be quite scary to think that your BF might be one of those fake nice guys. And yet it is a possibility, on that has happened to a lot of girls over the years heck you might be here because you’ve had this happened to you before. Good news for you is that no matter how slick these guys might be faking it can only go so far. There are numerous ways to tell how a man is pretending to be genuine towards your relationship. So ladies here are a few red flags that if your boy-toy shares, sorry to say to you, but he has to go.
1. Actions vs. Words.
This one might be hard to catch at first, but it usually doesn’t take that long. If someone is a certain way, they won’t have to tell you that they are. It will be their actions that will show you. However, if a person needs you to believe that they are something, then they will need the help of their dialect.
There is a lot that our body language, tone, and habits reveal about what kind of people we are. Take note of the “good” your man does on a daily basis, apparently, and compare it to his actions. Let’s talk examples; they say they are a one-woman guy but openly flirts when they can with whom they can and blaming it on their social or somewhat playful persona. Or, telling tales of their love and compaction but you see their rudeness to people that can’t fight back like maids, waiters or baristas, which leads us to our second point.
2. How Does He Treat Others?
You may have heard this one time and time again, but it’s not broken. A lot of the times such individuals will keep all of their focus on you and how they should act around you. However, in doing so, they tend to slip up every now and then. With you, there is a potential profit ahead so you and anyone one of the sort will see their compassion only.
If you doubt that you are dealing with a faker than you will have to take a look at how they treat the people around them. Generally how they interact with others. You can tell a lot if you just observe. And don’t try to justify their behavior with, “He loves me, so I’m special; That’s why!” argument because it will come back to bite you later down the line. Just look for unnecessary rudeness, smirk, and any general douchey behavior towards people that are in no position to push back.
3. General Vs. Individual.
Everyone is different and has an individuality to their preferences. Nothing new there, we learn that in grade school. However, there are a few general rules to being romantic that nice guys usually don’t get. On the other hand, a playboy will efficiently fulfill all of those public expectations that you might have from your partner as he’s been there quite a lot. So the occasional surprise rose, or B-day gift will be there from them however you won’t receive something too individual to you.
It is getting a bit confusing so let s try to explain. Chocolates, flowers, and hugs are basics that everyone follows, and of course, these gestures are adored universally for the most part. All girls love compliments and most love getting flowers and present. However, how meaningful is that preset? Is it just a watch that he thought would be a suitable present? Or was there a reason he chose to give that particular watch to you that means something to the both of you?
In essence, if you don’t have such meaningful moments in your relationships that cater to your distinct character that just means they don’t know you that well. And if you two have been together long, that is a very problematic conclusion to come to.
If you partner is sincere, they should be aware of what matters to you more than a cute dress or a grand gesture out in public. And if they can’t think of something like that…well you know what we are going to say already.
With the way, most people view morals and relationships today it is very easy to get heartbroken. Folks see being a playboy as cool and something to strive to be like. Quite odd that some man would choose to be in such a predicament. Nonetheless, some such individuals would gladly have empty affairs. Now, just because they want to doesn’t mean that you should be stuck in one too. Be observant and know what you are getting yourself into.
It would be safe to assume that a vast majority of the world’s population would agree with the point that breaking up with a person is never really easy or simple. There are so many factors that go into making a relationship work; and sometimes, things just aren’t meant to be. And when two people are just incompatible with one another, they are forced to break up no matter how in love they might be in their relationships.
Of course, there are some fairly decent and gentle ways for couples to break up. Often, these are the healthy kinds of breakups; the ones that offer the people involved with a sense of closure. However, there are also the cruel ways to break up with a person – the kinds of breakups that can potentially leave a person feeling damaged, scarred, and wounded for a long period of time. These are the traumatizing kinds of breakups; and no one ever really deserves to have to go through them.
You have to understand that it only takes a single bad breakup to forever taint a person’s approach to relationships and perspective on love. It can be very traumatizing to the point that it dramatically alters a person’s emotional and mental makeup. For some, it can be a trigger for episodes of depression, anxiety, and mistrust. A bad breakup can have such a toxic impact on a person to the point that they could develop some very negative and unhealthy relationship patterns and philosophies. That is why if you have experienced a very impactful breakup that was just downright cruel, you shouldn’t be afraid to seek help from other people to try to make sense of it all. Some victims of cruel breakups even go as far so as to seek therapy from licensed professionals.
It can be so difficult and painful trying to initiate a breakup with someone; particularly if you’re still in love with that person and you care deeply for them. It can be hard to go through the proper and healthy process of breaking up; and it can be tempting to just do away with doing things right altogether. But you shouldn’t give in. You shouldn’t take the easy way out because it’s likely that the easy way is also the cruelest way. As uncomfortable as it might make you, you always have to make sure that you conduct yourself in a mature, honest, and respectable manner when you approach a breakup with someone. You can’t break up with a person so insensitively and ruthlessly. Have a heart. Be considerate of that person’s feelings and overall outlook.

Ghosting is terrible because you are depriving your partner of any kind of closure. You just act as if the entire relationship never even took place. You leave without a sign. Not only will your partner have to deal with the backlash of being broken up with; they will be left with so many unanswered questions to the point that it’s going to be hard for them to trust another person ever again.
2. The Gradual Fade
The gradual fade is something that is just as cruel as ghosting. Yes, it’s subtle. But it’s still a very passive approach to a breakup. When you feel like there are problems in a relationship, bring them up. If you’re just gradually excluding yourself from the narrative, it doesn’t really solve anything between the two of you. There is no attempt at resolution.
If you’re going to break up with someone, at least be honest about it. Don’t patronize a person by lying to them. Acknowledge that they are mature human beings who are able to handle proper breakups. If they find out that you’re lying about the breakup, you end up depriving them of the real closure that they need.
4. Public Breakups
Don’t be so cruel so as to break up with a person in public. You should already know by now about the emotional torment that comes with enduring a breakup. And sometimes, it can be hard to keep these emotions in check in the moment. That’s why it’s always better to do these breakups in private.

If you want to break up with a person, break up with them. Confront them about your feelings and you disappointments. Don’t be cowardly by taking the easy way out. Don’t cheat on them to intentionally sabotage the relationship. On top of the breakup, cheating can add even more trauma to a person’s breakup experience.
NEVER blindside a person with a breakup. This is not what they mean when they say that surprises are good for a relationship. You should always have the good sense to really build up to a breakup. Ease your way into it. Prepare your partner for it. Give them a chance to try to fix things or at the very least, let them brace themselves for it.
There have been so many articles written about finding success in relationships in the past. But a lot of them tend to really overcomplicate things. That’s what’s going to make this particular article so different from the rest. It’s going to trim away the fat. It’s going to do away with all of the unnecessary things. It’s going to focus on the real core essentials of making a relationship work.
The Art of the Compromise
Relationships just aren’t all about getting what you can out of someone. It’s also about giving as much of yourself into something that is greater than you. If you find yourself in a position wherein you are giving so much of yourself and you feel cheated or undervalued, then maybe you are in an unequal relationship. The problem with being in an excessively unequal relationship is that it generates imbalance and animosity within the relationship.
You aren’t always going to be seeing eye to eye on everything in the relationship. You aren’t always going to be in agreement. You are going to have your fair share of differences, and you both need to be able to meet each other halfway. Both of you must learn the art of the compromise if you really want to establish equilibrium in your relationship. You need to always be willing to adjust for the sake of your partner and your relationship.
The Value of Effective Communication
There are very few problems in a relationship that can’t be fixed by effective and open communication. If the two of you are just purely unable to communicate with one another in an open and honest manner, then the relationship just isn’t built to last for the long-term. You always need to find a way to openly express your thoughts and feelings to one another in a consistent and open manner.
That means showing the willingness to have uncomfortable and difficult conversations with your partner; even if it means it would lead to eventual conflict. You can’t let your thoughts and feelings stay bottled up inside. When you see a problem in the relationship, you need to speak up so that your partner will know when it’s time to adjust.
The Wisdom in Picking Your Spots
Granted, after a marriage or when the two of you start to get really serious with one another, you will start to discover that you and your partner aren’t always going to jive after all. There will be moments wherein you will really dwell on your clashes and your differences. And it’s not always easy having to find a middle ground. It’s not always easy trying to meet the other half way. You aren’t always going to agree on everything – and you always have to be able to address the conflicts that you have with one another.
However, it’s always important for you to understand that there is a time and place for everything. You aren’t always going to be able to fight with your partner whenever you want and expect good things to come out of it. Also, not every battle is worth fighting over. Sometimes, there are just some things that you need to let go of. You don’t have to engage in every war. If you feel comfortable with losing a battle every once in a while, then do so. There’s no need for unnecessary friction in the relationship.
Don’t be so secretive about your needs.
There are a few times wherein we enter a long-term relationship and we get so tangled up in it all. We get so caught up in the idea of loving another person more than we love ourselves to the point that we end up disregarding our own needs and desires. We make so many concessions. We make so many compromises. We give up so many things for the sake of this love.
And you might feel like that’s an incredibly noble thing to do. You might think that you are doing your relationship a major favor. But here’s what you need to understand: you shouldn’t always be putting another person’s needs above your own. If you keep putting yourself second, you are diminishing your own dignity. You are breeding resentment within your own relationship and you are going to end up suffering for it.
Of course, it isn’t likely that the two of you are going to have the exact same outlook and expectations in love and relationships. And that’s okay. It’s all about being able to strike a balance. You both need to find a way to make one another happy. You both need to be able to maintain an open mind and an open heart at all times.
When they say, “once a cheater, always a cheater”, is there some real truth behind it? If you know that your partner has had a history of cheating, is it likely that they’re still going to cheat on you in the future? It’s okay to have these fears. It’s okay to have these worries. Of course, you want to be looking out for yourself. And to be cheated on twice in the same relationship is just downright despicable and heart-wrenching. Or what if your partner has cheated on another girl in a previous relationship? Does that mean that there is cause for worry on your part? Are they likely to carry their unfaithful ways into your own relationship as well? Are they going to be doing some shady stuff behind your back too?
Well, if you’re looking for a definitive answer, you have to know that you’re not going to get one. You’re just never going to be able to know for sure. That’s the essence of human nature. Because of free will and independent thought, you never really know how people are going to be when they’re around you. You never know how a person is going to treat you. The truth is that a person who has cheated in a relationship once before can cheat again. However, the same can also be said for people who have never cheated in their lives. It’s also plausible that people who have always been faithful will cheat on their partners. So whatever the case, you are taking a risk. You are taking a chance on whoever you get into a relationship with. The possibility of infidelity is always going to be present in any kind of relationship. All relationships are unpredictable. You can’t always expect things to turn out the way that you plan them. It’s all about being able to weigh the risks and the benefits. However, the nature of these risks is that they are unpredictable. There are just so many variables that go into making a relationship work, and there are so many factors that can drive someone to cheat in a relationship.
So, you don’t necessarily have to feel down about dating someone who has cheated in the past. Remember that a person’s past alone is not enough to define who they have become and who they are going to be. Someone who has a history of cheating doesn’t automatically indicate that that person is going to cheat in the future. And if you’re looking for more peace of mind, then you’ve arrived at the right article. If your partner has cheated in the past but exhibits a lot of the signs listed here, it’s likely that they aren’t going to cheat on you in the future.
1. They come clean about every mistake they’ve made in past relationships.
They really stay honest with you about the shortcomings that they have had in the past. They don’t try to hide anything from you. They stay as open and as genuine as possible.
