I don't know from recent history butt, an ex boyfriend cheated on me ALL the time. I was young and it took me awhile to figure it out.
He would get really paranoid about what I was doing or where I had been. I think he told me later that he just assumed somehow that if he was doing it, I may be too.
New ideas brought to bed..
"Working Late" or having a new hobby taking time away.
I'll try to think of more..

If you are questioning it, chances are there is at least something going on. Usually people just withdraw from their relationship once they start cheating. Distant, not involved, doesn't want to spend time working on your relationship.

I don't know why people are unfaithful.

I don't think that you can prevent it either. I don't think that all people cheat, so maybe find someone that you can trust to "prevent" it.

Listen to your gut. He's probably cheating. It's not you. He's searching for something within himself. Why not spend a few days away together? Ask him about what's going on in his life. Maybe he'll tell you.

What if your gut is wrong??? How can you know for sure without flat out asking? I know my gut has been wrong before, so why give such advise, "listen to your gut"?

Me personally, I look for lipstick, scratch marks, disheveled (sp) clothing, hair, the typical tale tale signs.

why are you feeling insecure about your relationship? why can't you discuss your insecurities with your partner? is this feeling sudden? are YOU feeling happy in the relationship? you just can't figure out why people behave the way they do. you will need to ask. and if you ask, you should be ready for all potential answers. and you should get it straight in your head what your response will be to these potentia answers before you ask about it. do not be caught off guard or confrontational, just ask and be prepared to listen. and if you ask and listen and your partner says nothing is going on, you will need to decide if you will believe what your partner tells you, or if you will continue to be suspicious. these are YOUR feelings and YOU need to address the reasons YOU feel this way. be careful about holding other people responsible for the way YOU feel. i mean, peoples' actions can have an effect on how you feel, but it's up to you to deal with those feelings. if you don't think you will be able to accept an answer of "no, i'm not cheating or thinking about it", i would consider ending the relationship and not pressing the issue. once the trust is lost, it takes a lot of work to rebuild a failing relationship. but i would definitely speak about it with my partner.

Does he come home after "working late" smelling freshly showered? Ask if he made it to the gym that day...if he says no or at lunchtime, you've totally rumbled him.

I think sometimes your gut could be wrong and you need evidence. I never heard of a case where a signigant other couldn't find evidence

can't you just ask outright? i mean, this is your relationship, not some insignificant area of your life. it affects your emotions, thoughts, actions, almost everything you do. just ask.
