Is he cheating? Or am I overreacting?

My boyfriend rarely compliments me, but today I called him and he answered "hello Gorgeous" I was so taken aback I asked him if he was expecting a different caller. He replied " I have caller I.d." Now I am torn between wanting to believe him and having this awful gut feeling it was meant for someone else.

You're sounding a little nuts, dear. Just enjoy his attention and don't be silly.

From your description, you do not have clear proof whether he is cheating. Thus, it would be seen as overreacting and would rather pull him back because of your criticism. You should therefore request him to appreciate and compliment you more. However, you should slowly find out if he has an affair as opposed to accusing him with no evidence.

It's probably him being affectionate and you just weren't prepared. Don't be suspicious of a man who compliments you like that, they are often few and far between. That was a really sweet gesture on his part and you need to trust him more.

Maybe he really ment it. They say those who accuses first....just tell him thank you and that you miss those little pet names he used to call you. Damn it fight for your man if you really wanna keep him.

Yes, you're over-reacting. Since he has caller ID, he knew it was you. Relax, and be glad he thinks you're gorgeous!

You make a great point, it seems like a trap. But since I have begged him for something, anything, before that something like this out of the blue like this really got me wondering. But I see what you guys are saying. I did recover and thanked alot him for the compliment and told him I would like to hear more often. I was rewarded for my bad behavior last night by getting the silent treatment.

I dont think he is. If he has ID caller he knew it was you.

He knew it was you. You are making a great deal out of this, when there is nothing to it. Relax, and enjoy having a bf that thinks this much of you. Sounds normal to me! Good luck.

Maybe he noticed that he wasnt complimenting you a lot and this time he wanted to do it, so just accept the compliment and be happy

You should talk to him about your doubts, because it's your boyfriend and you know him better than anyone else, so a bad feeling isn't nothing until you're sure about what's true, no? Do it :)
