Are you rain? A thunderstorm? Sunshine on a bright, summer day? No matter which type of weather you identify most with, it means something important about your personality. Tell us in the comments: Which one fits you the best?

1. You’re sunshine if…

The emotion you feel the most often is happy. You’re the bubbly the one in the friend group, the one who always has a positive outlook. You always try to look at the bright side and enjoy every moment of life.

2. You’re rain if…

You love staying in the house and being cozy. You’re a really good listener and your friends really value that about you. They would probably describe you as the calm and soothing friend.

3. You’re fog if…

You really value your alone time. Of course, you like hanging out with friends and being social, but when you get to have some quality time with yourself, you really savor and enjoy it. You like to think things over instead of making rash decisions.

4. You’re snow if…

You have a very loud personality, which can be both a good and bad thing. People love how energetic you are, but it’s clear that you love being the center of attention. Sometimes it can be overbearing, but the people who really love you, love you even if you can get a little annoying sometimes.

5. You’re lightning and thunder if…

Don’t deny it, you’re a very social person. You love being in the company of others, whether it’s just one another person or fifteen others. When you’re with people, you don’t have even have to talk or be the center of attention. You just like other peoples’ company.

6. You’re a hurricane if…

Maybe you’re not the best decision maker. It’s okay to be indecisive about things, it just means that you’re particular. You tend to think things through a lot, so that you’re positive you’re making the right decision for you.

Betrayal can be a big factor when it comes to divorce or breakups. But betrayal doesn’t have to apply only to psychical acts— there are several types.

According to Matthew Hussey, author and “love life strategist,” cheating is “whatever the two of you have decided is beyond the boundary of what is OK.” Betraying can be physical or emotional.

These are some things to look out for when it comes to avoiding being betrayed, according to science:

1. Those With Ages Ending in 9

It’s been said plenty of times that those who cheat partially do so because of insecurities. While it’s easy to brush this sort of statement off as, “Excuses, excuses,” there is something to be said about an increase in one’s insecurity as they get older. Just look at every romantic comedy you’ve ever seen wherein a woman nearing the end of her thirties begins panicking about her age.

Well, if you’ve ever been cheated on by someone on the crux of a new age bracket, whether they were 29, 39, 49, etc., the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences might have identified said ages as the common link.

2. Heavy social media users

According to research from Cyberpsychology, Behavior and Social Networking, “the more often a person uses Twitter, the more often they have relationship conflicts…culminat[ing] in cheating, breakups and divorce.” Time wasn’t a factor for these results—couples that had been together for a short time experienced the same social-media effect as couples that had been together for many years. (Previous studies have suggested similar results for heavy Facebook users, too.)

3. People who have betrayed before

Some people who cheat ask for forgiveness after the act and never do it again. But unfortunately, someone who has cheated before is likely to do it again, according to marriage therapists in a Huffington Post article.

According to the therapists, people can change in some circumstances, but it’s difficult. You don’t want to assume they’ll cheat again if they have before, or else you’ll sell them short and you might miss out on a great opportunity. But be careful— if they blame their current partner for causing them to cheat, they probably won’t change and they’ll do it again.

4. Wealthier men and poorer women

The rich men part shouldn’t be surprising: Just look at any extramarital relationship exposed in Hollywood or Washington D.C. Armed with power and money, men can become fluent in the language of illicit affairs. The surprise here is that poor women are more likely to cheat than wealthier peers. Though the explanations vary, some evolutionary biologists theorize that lower-income women cheat in hopes of moving up the genetic (or financial) ladder for the presumed benefit of their children.

5. Friskier mates

According to intimacy expert Mary Jo Rapni, having a partner who is suddenly more physically affectionate with you could mean he or she is cheating. “When a man starts cheating, he becomes hyperactive sexually,” she says. Because his sex drive has been aroused, he starts craving more intimacy—and when his mistress isn’t around to satisfy his needs, his wife becomes the next best thing.

Is your partner cheating on you?

This isn’t necessarily an idea that a lot of people in relationships would ever like to entertain, but it’s the cold hard truth that a lot of us have to face. People cheat. Infidelity exists. Loyalty and commitment aren’t necessarily sure things. We’ve seen it happen all the time and a lot of us still believe that it would never happen to us. We’re wrong. It could happen to any of us and it can really break us if we’re not careful. No one really ever goes into a relationship with another person with the expectation that their partner is going to cheat on them. Cases of cheating and unfaithfulness are never planned. Infidelity has the power to threaten even the strongest of relationships.

But one of the worst parts of having to deal with cheating in a relationship is the surprise factor that comes with it. The sheer shock of finding out that you have a partner who so willingly cheats on you even though you love them is downright devastating. More than the act of cheating itself, the utter betrayal that you feel from a person you so trusted is what hurts the most. It’s the feeling of having all of your dreams and ideas about a person come crashing down on you in an instant because you never saw it coming. You try to look back at all those little red flags that you should have seen in the first place, and you smack yourself for not being smarter about it. Maybe you could have softened the blow or beat your partner to the punch had you known earlier. But instead, it all blew up in your face and you didn’t get a chance to prepare for the wreckage that ensued.

So no matter how much you love your partner, if you feel like something is off, then you really have to pay attention to your feelings. You have to be able to listen to your instincts and heed out the signs. Of course, you have to trust that your partner truly loves you, but you also have to protect your heart. You have to be able to be vigilant. You can be loving and be guarded at the same time. It’s all about maintaining that healthy balance. So if you suspect that things aren’t exactly going as smoothly as you think they should be going, then maybe you have to start paying more attention.

The key is in knowing what red flags you should be looking out for in the relationship. You have to be able to know what to look for so that it will be easier for you to spot them. But if you’re feeling lost and you don’t know what you should be keeping an eye out for, then this article is for you. If your partner is exhibiting a few of the signs that are listed on here, then it is highly likely that they are cheating on you and you have a reason to be suspicious of them.

1. They act really weird about the privacy of their phones and laptops.

Of course, one of the biggest telltale signs that your partner is cheating on you is if they act really sketchy with their communication devices. Sure, you should be able to respect their privacy, but they wouldn’t be acting all shady if they didn’t have something to hide. They don’t want you browsing and finding things that aren’t meant for your eyes.

2. You don’t have as much sex as you used to.

It’s only normal for a couple’s sex life to have its occasional slumps as the relationship grows older. But a dramatic drop in your sex life should always be a cause for concern. If your partner isn’t turning to you for sexual fulfillment, you have to consider the possibility that they are getting this fulfillment from other sources.

3. They make a drastic change in their lifestyle without consulting you first.

Simple things like dressing differently, taking up a new fitness routine, or wearing a new brand of perfume can seem like nothing, but these often have heavy implications. You should do a little more digging if your partner starts exhibiting new character traits or habits.

4. They start working weirder hours at the office.

Working late? That’s the classic excuse. If these “late nights” at the office are becoming more and more frequent, then you have more than enough reason to be suspicious of your partner’s late night activities.

5. They become increasingly more unavailable to you.

Emotional and physical unavailability are always bad signs in a relationship. It may mean that they are being unavailable to you because they are devoting so much of themselves to something or someone else.

6. You get the sense that they are always getting distracted by something.

A guilty mind is a clouded mind. Always remember that. So if your partner is seemingly always distracted, it may be because they are thinking about too many things – like lies.
