Ah yes cheating. The one truly horrible thing that your partner can seemingly do to you at anytime. We don’t mean to freak you out by saying that, but it’s true. It’s the one thing that could happen to any of us at any time in our relationships. It’s the one thing we are constantly worried about. And that is exactly why you have come across this article today! You are just a tad bit worried that your partner might be cheating on you using the Snapchat app, correct?
Figuring it out is a little harder that you would think it to be, because Snapchat is one of the more private apps and we don’t always have access to our partners Snaps from the inside. We only know what we see from our Snapchats.
Don’t feel too down on your luck just yet! There are a few ways for you to be able to tell if your partner is or is not cheating on you by using Snapchat. How? Well, we’ll get to that very shortly. First let’s talk about cheating and what it really is. There are two different types of cheating. You read that right! You might be confused as to how there are two types. You’re probably thinking, ‘Isn’t cheating just simply cheating?’ Well, yes and no. Cheating is cheating no matter what way you look at it, but there are two forms.
One form being emotional cheating. This is often the cheating type that people use apps such as Snapchat for. Emotional cheating means your has developed deep feelings for another person, but they have not made the connection on a physical level… Yet. They are having an emotional affair with each other simply through conversation. This is often the cheating that happens when two people get too close on social media.
The other form of cheating would be physical cheating. Of course there can be both going on at once, but physical cheating is where the affair is happening face to face. There will be sexual intercourse or, at the very least, some fooling around. This isn’t simply just talking to each other. They’ve actually been physically intimate.
How to figure out which one your partner is doing, if they are cheating at all? We aren’t quite sure. You would have to do some extra digging to find that one out. We aren’t physics. However, we can give you some advice to help you figure out if your partner is using Snapchat.
Snapchat Cheating Clues
Clue #1: They’re Always Hiding
What is the number one thing that any cheater does? Hides! They will always be hiding away somewhere else. This ensures that you do not see what they are up to when they are using their phone. You might notice them saunter off the other room just for a minute to open a text/snap and then come back when they are done. Or they take their phone into the bathroom frequently. Of course taking your phone into the bathroom with you isn’t that random, but if you notice they’re claiming they need to use the restroom every ten minutes, it becomes a little bit sketchy, don’t you think? They might be taking prolonged periods of times in their as well, but never flush the toilet!
Not only will they hide from you, but they will hide their phone screen away from you at all times. This is definitely not normal behavior. Your partner shouldn’t be hiding their screen away from you when they get a message. This usually indicates there is something on their screen that they don’t want you to see. Possibly a snap from someone you don’t know about or someone they don’t want you to know that they are talking to.
Watch to see if they get defensive when asked about them hiding their screen. If they do get defensive, there is a good chance that they are doing something that they shouldn’t be doing.
Clue #2: They’re Constantly On Snapchat
Snapchat is fun and all, but the only reason that you spend all of your time on it is if you are talking to someone, right? So if your partner has started to use Snapchat obsessively it might be for that exact reason. Some people just find themselves addicted to Snapchatting. So how are you supposed to tell if they are just riding out an obsession or if they are using it to have an affair? It gets a little tricky to tell, but it’s not entirely impossible by any means. All you have to do is pay attention and look for all of the clues! You won’t be able to tell by just using one or two of the clues we are laying out for you. You must be on the look out for several of them.
A good way to separate an obsession with cheating is to pay attention to when your partner got obsessed with Snapchat. Were they always this into it or is it a fairly new thing? Did it just come out of nowhere? Because if so it might be because they just started talking to someone that they like.
Clue #3: And Giggling And Smiling
And when they are on Snapchat are they always giggling and/or smiling, but fail to tell you what at? We all know that when someone you like is texting you that you tend to smile without even trying. So your partner might be doing just that. Smiling at someone they like that is Snapchatting them. Otherwise they better give you a good reason as to why they are in that constant state when they are using their Snaps.
Clue #4: They Never Snap You
How sad it would be for your partner to constantly be on Snapchat, but never send you any Snaps. You might notice they are always on their Snapchats but they fail to send you anything half of the time or they fail to put pictures or videos up on their stories. This is a major sign that something fishy is going on.
What else could they possibly be doing if they are on Snapchat that often? Let’s hope it’s not what we assume!
Clue #5: Yet They’re Always Snapping Someone
So they have no posts on their stories and haven’t been sending you any snaps recently? Yet they are constantly taking snapchats of themselves and seemingly sending them to someone. Unless they have a friend they are super close with that talks to them all the time then you have a right to be worried. Ask them who they are always sending these snaps to and see what their answer comes out to be. If they say it is a friend, go ahead and confirm with the friend that this is true before jumping to any conclusions. You don’t want to come off as crazy without any evidence to back this all up.
Clue #6: Someone Else Is Their ‘Heart’
Snapchat use to have the ‘best friends’ feature. This was a great way to catch your partner cheating. Unfortunately, they took down that feature. Probably because it kind of sort of invaded our privacy a little bit. However, now it is a lot more difficult to figure out who your partner is talking with all of the time. Instead they now have a different system in place. You will have to keep a lookout to see if you are their ‘heart’ or not. What’s a ‘heart’? A heart is the symbol that shows up next to your name if you are someone’s ‘best friend’ on Snapchat or if they are yours. You can’t see this on their story, but you can see the heart next to their name when you snap them. So if there is no heart next to their name when the two of you are snapping, then you are definitely not their ‘best friend’ on Snapchat and someone else is.
Clue #8: Someone You Don’t Recognize Is In Their Frequents
You might get a sneak peek at their Snapchat once in awhile. Keep your eyes peeled to see who their ‘frequently messaged’ people are. If there is a guy/girl that you don’t recognize in there, then they might be Snapcheating with them!
