Just because someone cheats, it doesn't mean that they are addicted to sex. Sometimes people cheat just to cheat. A sex addict will cheat non-stop. It's compulsive. It won't be for intimacy or because they are unhappy in their relationship. It won't be because they are insecure or they are doing it out of spite. It is a much deeper issue than that.
You two could have just had the most amazing sex and soon as you are done... they are at it again. But this time they are doing it without you. Don't be offended. This isn't about you not making them happy or not getting them off or not being good enough. If it's an addiction, they can't help it and literally cannot stop.
Do you often catch them in a lie? A sex addict will lie about anything and everything. Why? because they are living a double life and they don't want you to know the truth. And often they aren't even lying about sex; it's just in their nature to lie like a dog about everything.
Have they never had a successful long-term relationship? This is not a great sign. This could mean that they aren't able to truly get close to someone. What makes you think that you could break that pattern? You guys have great sex, but don't you want more than that?
Look, kinky is fun. May we all have a little kink in our lives. It's when the kinky starts to become too much. It starts to take over your sex life and starts to feel wrong. Then you know that there may be a deeper issue.
6. They Are Secretive About Their Phone/Computer Use
Is their ringer always off? Do they always have their phone with them? Do they log out of everything on their computer whenever you are around? What are they trying to hide? They may be cheating. They may be addicted to porn. They are hiding something from you so you shouldn't ignore it.
They are controlling, but most importantly they are controlling in the bedroom. They have to be in charge in the sack and many sex addicts don't care if you get off or not. The romp is about them and them only and they are going to get what they want no matter what!
You have never seen them be anything but confident and cocky in the sack. They act almost as if you are lucky to be with them. That is because they think they are a sex god and in the end you are never going to be able to be the only one that is able to fulfill them.
They are a master manipulator and when you call them out on anything, they are able to quickly turn it around on you. They are so convincing that you actually end up believing that you are at fault for something. It's all a distraction to keep you from knowing the truth...the truth that all of your concerns are for good reason.
An addict always wants a partner. Or three. They are rarely without a relationship and being alone makes them feel lonely and insecure. These relationships are usually short term and there is always infidelity. But just as long as they feel needed, they are happy.
When sex comes around, a sex addict is far too heated to think about using protection. They want to do it and they want to do it now and they don't want anything to come between them. This is dangerous, especially considering how many partners they have and have had.
They are always broke and why? They make money, so what are they spending it on? Because an addict will have a secret life outside of your relationship, you will never know. Actually, you don't really want to know.
They are either not available or always late. They are constantly flaking out on you. This could be because they get carried away looking at porn for hours or they are out fooling around and not thinking about you and lost track of time.
Your gut knows when something is wrong. It can usually detect that someone is cheating or isn't treating you right. It's up to you to face the problem, try getting to the bottom of it and then work on getting out!
