Here are telltale signs if your husband or boyfriend has a “kulasisi.” This is not Tsismis. These are the three warning signs that will give him out, says Dr. Laura Berman, an expert.
1. Revived Interest in Appearance: If your partner suddenly
undergoes a makeover of sorts, in which he spends much more time
on his appearance, it could mean that he is trying to impress
someone new. If he all of the sudden ditches his old khakis and
sweats for something more stylish, it might be because he is
trying to look his best for a new woman.

2. Missing in Action: “If there are large periods in which your
partner is absent and unaccounted for, it could be because there
are mischievous motives behind his AWOL behavior. Whether it is a
run to the corner store that takes over an hour, or whether he is
constantly “working late,” a missing husband could mean something

3. Mysterious Texts or Phone Calls: If you notice mysterious texts
or phone calls on your phone bill, or if your husband tries to
hide the phone bill or his cell phone from you, it might mean that
there is a new love interest in the rafters. Additionally, if he
spends more time on the computer, or tries to hide the screen he
was looking at when you walk in the room, this is a good indicator
that he might be philandering via the worldwide web.
The good doctor suggests that if you discover your partner doing these things, talk to him openly about your concerns. (Tsismosos’ suggestion: threaten to cut off his….while he asleeps.)
