11 Subtle signs you’re on the verge of having an affair

Published

on

For most, affairs aren’t necessarily wrapped up in mere curiosity, nor are they always about the sensual, sweaty romp most imagine. Sometimes, it’s not even about sex at all.

In actuality, an affair can start from something more basic, like the level of intimacy you lack with your own partner. So before you start planning your rendezvous, ask yourself how you got to this moment in the first place. Here’s a look at eleven subtle signs you’re on the verge of an affair:

1. You hesitate when someone asks if you’re in a relationship.

Or if they ask, “So how are things going?” you say, “Well, sort of…” or “It’s complicated.” The fact that you’re hesitating about an obvious relationship that you’re in reveals that you’re uncertain about your current relationship and where you two stand.

“It’s complicated” may imply that things aren’t great, that you’re considering a way out. It might even show that if you felt that the right opportunity presented itself, you may bethinking of cheating.

2. You stare or make eye contact with people who aren’t your partner.

Looking at others is harmless, but once your gaze lasts longer than a few seconds and you’re looking at another person up and down, you’re imagining yourself with that person. Now, you’re undressing them with your eyes. From there, you begin to imagine all sorts of things you shouldn’t even be thinking because the person you’re gawking at isn’t your partner.

3. You share too much information with the person you’re attracted to.

Eventually, the person you’re sharing with is privy to all sorts of information your partner isn’t, giving this person the upper hand, which can be used to seduce you in the near future.

4. You agree to meet anyone for a “quick lunch” or “a drink.”

If your meeting or get-together has nothing to do with work or isn’t truly platonic, you may be crossing the line. If there are feelings involved on either side, you may be meeting this person, unknowingly weighing the options as to whether you’re ready to take your friendship to the next level.

5. You brush against the other person as often as possible.

Playful as it may seem, brushing against one another can excite both of you, as your bodies begin to manifest latent desires you two know are there, but aren’t pursuing. Allowing someone else to brush the hair from your face, or run their fingers through your hair can trigger the eye-closing groan that instantly denotes pleasure. Of course, you two will begin to read one another’s body language, especially the signals for pleasure.

6. You outwardly touch someone else.

Touching one another sends certain signals to your brain. That slight stimulation, though harmless, can lead to more, especially if your touch or the other person’s touch begins to linger. Part of you already enjoys this person and imagines yourself being with him or her. Sooner or later, your body will ultimately follow.

7. You start lying about what you’re doing or where you are.

If you start sneaking around in any way as it relates to the person you’re spending more time with, chances are you’re on the verge of an affair. Instinctively, you begin to lie, covering up your tracks to avoid getting caught, while allowing yourself to be in subtly seductive situations where you two can meet in secret.

8. You’re experiencing mood swings.

If you’re suddenly happy, grumpy, absent-minded all the time, or display any other noticeable change in behavior, not being around this person begins to affect your mood. This other person has become your emotional crutch and your happiness, so your feelings for your partner are changing, which makes it easier and “excusable” to have an affair.

9. You change your appearance.

If you begin to splurge on areas you didn’t before — a new haircut, lingerie, a gym membership, mani-pedis or clothes — you’re buying these things to impress this new person. You know that your partner appreciates you the way you are, and so does your new interest. Still, some part of you is trying to make a good impression on him or her, so you’re showing your best side to ensure that you’re utterly irresistible.

10. You make a drastic life change.

If you were once a couch potato only able to get off of the couch for work and friends, but now suddenly find yourself the life of the party, you may be changing your outward appearance for the benefit of this new person. Even better, you may be trying to get out more and improve your self-image in order to get away from your partner.

You begin to be about “others.” Volunteering, people-pleasing and finding new outlets of excitement could be directly or indirectly related to this new person in your life, which may not be all that bad. Still, it means that you’re seeing things differently than you did before.

11. You’re discreetly texting, calling or messaging another person.

If you can’t go without hearing from this person in one form of communication or another, you’ve got it bad. If you get lost in a whirlwind of texts, emails, IMs or any other form of communication, you’re already far-gone. You become lost in your messages and begin to lose your focus at work, with friends or at home.

Lack of communication is something most cite for ending their relationships; yet, here you are, communicating often with this other person who isn’t your partner. You two are sharing something far more profound than attraction for one another. Your relationship is far too intimate at this point. Soon, you two will find yourselves in a position you can no longer ignore.

Before you begin any of these heavily flirtatious stages that lead to an affair, consider the consequences. Truly allow yourself to ponder if this other person is worth it. Allow yourself to explore doubts about whether you and this other person have a chance at long-lasting love, or whether it’s fleeting desire you feel.

In other words, be sure that once you’ve reached the turning point, the person you’re moving toward is a better fit than the one you’re moving away from.

Court Case: The Deafening Silence Of Black Sherif And His Investor

Published

on

What is the latest on Black Sherif’s court issue with his investor, Shadrach Agyei Owusu (Chavis)?

Well, Ghana Weekend has been following up on the matter. At least we need to get our audience updated on the issue since it is of great interest to many.

The case

On 11th April 2022, a writ of summons by the plaintiff, Shadrach Agyei Owusu, requesting that Ghanaian artiste Black Sherif be prevented from performing at events without his consent, was sighted by the media.

Shadrack requested an order for the preservation of all funds accrued from Black Sherif’s online streams.

Shadrach Agyei Owusu, the Chief Executive Officer of Waynes Chavis Consult, wanted a receiver to be taking the proceeds of all funds that would be accrued from the activities of the defendant.

This happened at a time when Black Sherif’s latest song ‘Kwaku The Traveller’ was topping global charts, making him the most sought-after artiste in Ghana in recent times.

Why was Black Sherif sued?

This suit came on the back of claims that Black Sherif had neglected his investor after he had injected funds into his career.

Black Sherif was reported to have signed a distribution deal with Empire Music without the consent of his investor, who purportedly had a business management contract with him.

The contract required that Black Sherif conducted all his activities through the investor who came on board to help the artiste.

Court day: May 9, 2022

This was the date set for the court hearing on the matter. So far, little information has been gathered about what became of that particular hearing.

While some of our sources say the case was not called at all, others say, it was deferred to a later date.

Ghana Weekend has tried scooping some information from both sides of the issue, but they are unwilling to really give details of the current situation of this suit.

Our interest

Ordinarily, this should be none of our business, but Ghana Weekend, as a media organisation, is interested in streamlining all facets of the entertainment industry. We saw this matter as a test case of many cracks in artiste-manager deals in the country. We are not on a mission of waking up sleeping dogs. We want precedence to be set for posterity.

Currently, Black Sherif is minding his music business, making money for himself, and growing his music career. Shadrack on the other hand is going about his work. They are both silent about the issue like nothing happened.

Maybe they have squashed their matter in private. Maybe Ghana Weekend is impatient with the outcome of the court hearing.

Maybe, our dear readers need to keep their eyes glued to our platforms as we nose out all details on this matter in our subsequent episodes.

We’ll be back!
