An infidelity expert exposes some of the tactics used by cheating spouses and boyfriends to camouflage their summer affairs.





Summer is high season for cheating men.  Infidelity and extramarital affairs flourish during this time of the year.  Many men who would never even think of cheating on their wives or girlfriends at other times, will initiate summer flings or short term love affairs.


Their unsuspecting wives and girlfriends are usually oblivious to what’s going on because they’re unfamiliar with the tactics cheating men use to hide their summer affairs.  As a result, most of these summer flings go undetected.


The Danger of Summer Flings


If your cheating spouse or significant other gets away with his summer fling, he’ll feel confident enough to have a fling next year, and the year after.  Summer flings will eventually become a habit or a way of life for him.  Worse yet, many summer flings turn into long-term affairs which could undermine your relationship or lead to divorce.


5 Common Tactics Summer Cheaters Use


So if you don’t want to become a victim of summer infidelity, familiarize yourself with some of trick summer cheaters use to escape detection. Most of them involve travel of some kind. 

Below are 5 common tactics cheating men use to camouflage their summer affairs.


Sending the Wife and Kids Away


Some cheating husbands routinely send their wife and kids away for a week or two, or for the entire summer to the shore, the lake, the mountains, a vacation home, or to visit to relatives in another state.  Once his family is conveniently tucked way, the summer cheater will play.


The Dream Vacation


Other summer cheaters conveniently remove their wife or girlfriend from the scene by treating her to a Caribbean cruise with her girlfriends, a week at a world class spa or a fancy resort he knows she can’t resist. 


Separate Vacations


The separate vacation scheme is a common ploy summer cheaters use to lay the groundwork for having a summer fling.  If he and his wife go their separate ways, he can conduct his summer affair far from the sight of prying eyes.


Counterfeit Conventions and Bogus Business Trips


Cheating men whose jobs require frequent travel can easily invent a trip that doesn’t exist.  Business travel is the perfect camouflage for a summer affair.  A cheating spouse may even tack on a few days to a legitimate business trip so he can indulge in a fling before returning home.


Fictitious Fishing Trips and Outdoor Adventures


Cheating husbands or boyfriends often use phony fishing trips or similar activities to hide their summer affairs.  Men know that if they claim to be participating in “guys-only” extreme sports or a male-bonding type outdoor adventure, their wives or girlfriends are unlikely to want to tag along.  It’s the perfect cover for a one or two week vacation with his mistress.  


How to Avoid Becoming a Victim of Summer Infidelity    


Not every man who sends his family to the shore, or treats his girlfriend to a dream vacation is setting the stage for a summer affair.   But these are among the tactics many cheating men use to hide their summer flings.  To avoid being a victim of summer infidelity, put a few checks and balances in place.  And familiarize yourself with the signs of a summer affair.
