What Does it Means to be Faithful to Your Partner? Find out Here:

While psychologists believe that trust should be the foundation of a strong and mature relationship, some people may still suspect their partner of being unfaithful because of a traumatic past experience or their own insecurities. Imagining your partner with another person can drive anybody mad, so sometimes it’s better to take a deep breath and evaluate whether there’s really something to be worried about.

What does it mean to be faithful to your partner?

If you’ve just started dating someone it can be difficult to figure out what constitutes being faithful in a relationship.

We know that sleeping with someone outside of your relationship is definitely not being faithful, but what about flirting?

What about having a best friend of the opposite sex?

It’s not an easy question to answer.

Here at the Hack Spirit blog, we’ve researched and talked about relationships for a long time now, and during this time we’ve come to figure out what the mainstream definition of being faithful really means.

So in this article, we’re going to talk about what being faithful is all about. This applies to monogamous relationships, not open relationships.

If you adopt these behaviors, you can guarantee that you’re being faithful in your relationship.

As a bonus, at the end of the article, you’ll find out what the way you hold hands can reveal about your relationship.

1. You have deleted all online dating apps

Dating-app bots: Learn how to spot them before swiping

If you found love online, good for you. Now, take a moment and get rid of those dating sites from your phone, computer, and tablet.

You don’t need them anymore. If you are serious about your relationship, you won’t feel like you need a backup or a “just in case things don’t work out plan.”

It’s unfair to your partner if you keep those accounts active. And you should expect them to delete their accounts as well.

If you and your partner aren’t ready to delete their online dating apps, then you’re not ready for a relationship (even if you like each other).

2. You have given up flirting

Sure, flirting is fun and relatively harmless…until it’s not. This is a common problem online, especially on social media platforms where comments are shared and posted publicly.

People can get hurt easily. It’s best to refrain from making comments that could be construed as flirting, especially if you are into your partner and want your relationship to work.

Flirting with others is a sign of cheating or at least the capability to cheat.

3. You don’t hide things

10 Signs You Have a Faithful Partner

In a mature relationship, partners should be able to share all their news with each other, and not just the pleasant news. If you notice that your partner even avoids telling white lies, it can be a sign that they’re loyal to you and see you as a person who they can completely confide in.

When you are in a relationship, it is important to maintain an open line of communication.

When you start to hide things from your partner, even if you do it because you think the information will hurt them, you are not being faithful to your relationship.

If you meet an ex-lover for lunch, don’t hide that from your current partner. It only leads to pain for everyone.

Also, don’t meet your ex-lover for lunch. Leave the past in the past.

4. You don’t give your heart to someone else 

10 Signs You Have a Faithful Partner

People have long thought of cheating as a sexual game, but it’s so much more than that. If one partner feels betrayed, then the faith is lost.

It can be harder to trust someone who has betrayed your confidence, even if sex isn’t involved. The best way to avoid hurting someone else, and your relationship, is to not engage in activities that you think you need to hide from your partner.

If you hide a text or a picture, then you probably shouldn’t be doing those things in the first place. If you feel like you could hurt your partner, don’t do it. If you worry about “getting caught”, even if it’s not in someone’s bed, don’t do it.

Being faithful to your partner means not giving your heart to someone else, and not letting someone else have a piece of your heart. It’s not just about sleeping with someone else.

So the next time your smartphone dings and you get a little twinge of fear about what the text message will say, consider cutting those ties.

5. You don’t form a stronger emotional attachment with someone compared to your partner

10 Signs You Have a Faithful Partner

Your significant other should be the first person you turn to for most of your daily ups and downs as well as your life’s greatest hurdles – when there is no longer the case, something is wrong.

Emotional cheating is essentially an “affair of the heart”.

It’s very different from a platonic friendship because there is also an attraction and flirting going on.

6. You don’t get physical with someone outside the relationship

10 Signs You Have a Faithful Partner

Fairly obvious, right? Sleeping with someone outside the relationship is obviously a breach of trust.

However, what about a meaningless drunken peck on the lips during a company party or holding hands with another physically attractive person? The intent is important.

Now I wouldn’t want to stereotype but according to Yvonne, a therapist at The Affair clinic, a good way to look at it is “in terms of the sex cycle.” Yvonne, a therapist at The Affair Clinic,

“A man is like a gas cooker, turned on from the flick of a switch. A woman needs much more warming up time, like an electric hob!”

She says that this is why a woman generally needs to feel an emotional connection with someone before she feels she wants to engage in sexual/physical activity.

As a result, a man may feel the pain of physical cheating harder and women find emotional infidelity harder to deal with.

7. You’ve decided to be committed to your partner through thick and thin

10 Signs You Have a Faithful Partner

Relationships are a choice. Sometimes, it feels like we are trapped for a variety of reasons, but we forget that we decided to be in this relationship.

Nobody made us do this.

And yet, there are times when we feel like we can’t change our minds.

If you want to be in a loyal, happy relationship, you have to decide to be committed to this person, over and over again.

Being committed means being dedicated or loyal to your partner. It means always being there for your partner when they’re going through a hard time.

Psychologists believe that body language reveals a lot about our true intentions, so even a simple gesture like holding hands can show the real feelings of your partner for you.

  • You loosely interlace the fingers. It’s a nice and tender gesture that shows, not only love, but the independence of each partner and acts as a signal to other people that you’re together.
  • Your partner wraps their hand over yours. While this gesture can be a sign of a strong desire to protect another person, it can also possibly reveal the controlling and codependent nature of the relationship. It’s better to pay attention to your partner’s behavior to spot any disturbing signs.
  • You intertwine your fingers. Interlocking all your fingers while holding hands is often interpreted as a sign of attraction and a strong need to be with another person, but without being too needy or showing dominance.
