Is My Man a Cheater or Am I Just Paranoid?

Dear Mouthy Housewives,

I suspect my boyfriend could be cheating on me, but I don’t have any proof. It’s more like I have a “gut feeling.” Do you think I should see about hiring a private investigator? Or should I confront him with my suspicions?

Dear Suspicious Sally,

Start by asking yourself the following questions: Is he the Governor of South Carolina? Is he the best golfer in the world? Was he John Kerry’s running mate in 2004? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then I can say with 100 percent accuracy that your man is cheating on you.

If you’re not dating Mark Sanford, Tiger Woods or John Edwards, then we may have to do some more digging. I am a big believer in gut feelings, but how long have you been dating this guy? If it’s only been a couple months, then going all private investigator on his arse is kind of intense. But if you have been together awhile, possibly live together or have talked about getting married, then you need to know.

I can save you the trouble of asking him directly. His answer will be “no.” Whether he’s Mr. Loyal or the biggest manwhore out there, he will defiantly insist that he’s faithful. So if you suspect he’s cheating (he’s often out late at night, gives lame excuses when he can’t see you, never leaves his email open, smells like Paris Hilton’s Eau de Parfum when you wear Fantasy by Britney Spears, etc.) and you have the cash, go ahead and hire a private investigator.

It will either give you peace of mind or set you free to find a new man whose loyalty you’ll never question.

Good luck to you,

Kelcey, TMH

Look into hiring John Edward’s campaign manager as a PI. He seems to be good at letting the cat out of the bag. You know, a few years down the road.
