Pisces men have always been known for being evasive and vague, and are always on the lookout for their “dream girl.”
They don’t like to cheat, since they despise conflict and prefer to take the easy way out. However, some astrologers believe Pisces is the sign most likely to cheat – which might just be the reason why Pisces is considered the worst boyfriend to date out of all the zodiacs.
It can be hard to know whether your Pisces man is cheating. To determine whether to confront, dump, or work things out with him, scroll down for some warning signals you can keep an eye on and for the reasons why Pisces cheat.
10 Signs a Pisces Man is Cheating on You
1. He doesn’t want to spend time with you.
When a Pisces guy begins to avoid spending quality time with you, this is the first indicator that he may be lying to you. Because he’s unfaithful, he is experiencing remorse, shame, and dread.
Pisces is a sign that prefers to avoid unpleasant feelings, so his covert absences may be an indication of cheating.
Keep an eye out for him canceling plans frequently or appearing to be considerably busier than normal with no apparent reason. He believes that the more he avoids you, the less likely it is for him to get caught – so he’ll keep avoiding you in hopes that he can avoid the drama.
On the other hand, just keep in mind that he can be preoccupied with something else. Take caution not to jump to conclusions.
2. He lies when confronted.
Individuals born under the Pisces sign can be deceiving. A Pisces man has many positive qualities but also has a negative side. One of their personality defects is their proclivity towards lying.
They justify lies by persuading themselves that the lies they are telling are actually being honest. They delude themselves into falling prey to their own web of lies and then persuade you to believe them.
If you believe your Pisces partner is lying or acting slick, it could be entirely possible that he is cheating on you.
3. He’s disconnected.
It’s conceivable that your Pisces man is cheating on you if he acts strangely detached for long periods of time – which is the opposite of the romantic, kind-hearted man you thought you knew.
If he’s really cheating on you, it’ll seem like he isn’t even there when he’s sitting right beside you. You’ll feel as if his thoughts are with (or on) someone else.
4. He’s avoiding you.
Pisces guys are brilliant at ghosting. When they want to talk to you, you won’t be able to stop them – but when they don’t, they may simply vanish without letting you know or making any attempt to contact you.
Something is certainly wrong if your Pisces boyfriend has vanished off this globe entirely. He’s not just postponing plans, but avoiding you altogether (one possible explanation is that he may be planning to end the relationship but lacks the courage to do so).
5. He’s unpredictable.
Pisces men are like vagabonds in relationships. It’s very difficult to capture and hang on to them! They may love to be committed to someone, yet at the same time, they might be repulsed by intimacy, making you feel as if you’re chasing after them.
A maelstrom of emotions, at times, the Pisces guy may come across as a bit nasty, especially when hiding something. Because of his powerful emotions, he might also be quite a callous character when it comes to comedy and conversation—very sharp and cutting. On other days, he may be the nicest person around.
6. He accuses you of cheating out of the blue.
A suspicious instance that shows that a person of this sign is dishonest is if he accuses you of infidelity out of nowhere. If he’s behaving uncomfortably and inquiring you of your whereabouts more than normal, try to get to the bottom of this erratic behavior.
He may be racked with guilt about his choices, and instead of being a man and accepting his flaws, he may instead be choosing to blame you for them – and making you look like the bad person in the relationship.

Don’t assume that just because he’s jealous, he’s not cheating. A Pisces guy is very territorial, and if another man is present, he will most likely express his own guilt by showing his suspicion towards you and becoming overly jealous.
7. He stopped being romantic.
A Pisces man can get caught up in the romance of any intimate connection, and as you know, he soon falls in love and forms a strong bond.
If he’s cheating on you, you may be plagued with instances where he doesn’t even look at you anymore. This means he has found with someone else the whirlwind romance he once had with you. So he doesn’t need to be romantic to you anymore.
8. He’s just plain rude.
Be aware that if a Pisces man is cheating on you but is conflicted about it, he might drive you insane. He may say or do things that are hurtful, exasperating, or just plain cruel – and these things might force you to break up with him.
Some men are like this, and Pisces isn’t immune to avoiding the sentiments and emotions formed near the end of a relationship’s life. He may want to avoid the horrible aftermath of his cheating, so he may be trying his hardest to drive you away before his secret comes out.
Why Are Pisces Men Unfaithful?
Pisces are particularly sensitive to other people’s feelings and prefer to be in honest and transparent partnerships. For Pisces, the thought of adultery and betrayal is excruciatingly painful.
In the aftermath, the Pisces man will be filled with guilt and remorse and may even confess to their cheating to rid themselves of the weight of their emotions.
Here are some reasons they might cheat:
1. He always wants “more”.
A Pisces man has a rich imagination and enjoys nothing more than fantasizing about eternal love written in the stars. However, as the partnership sets into its comfortable everyday routine, his yearning for this “magical” kind of love may drive him to become miserable and look elsewhere.
2. He’s looking for a deep emotional connection.
Can Pisces guys even be adulterous since their lives are so emotionally driven? The answer is yes; they’re humans, after all. This raises the question, “Why?”
While everyone who cheats has psychological reasons for doing so. From an astrological standpoint, unfaithfulness is usually caused by a rupture in the emotional and/or mental connection between the people in a relationship.
Understanding what attracts Pisces men in the first place is the greatest approach to having them avoid cheating on you.
3. He places a high value on spirituality.
The word “soul” can mean a lot of things to Pisces. Much inspires Pisces to rise to a transcendent state, whether it’s staring into an animal’s eyes, listening to music, or seeing wondrous art.
He may wander away if his spirit is unable to “be one with something”—which is you in the relationship.
4. He doesn’t want to commit.
As enthusiastic as a Pisces man is about falling in love, it’s no surprise that he can also be scared of it. A Pisces man daydreams about living a fairytale love story in his dreams, but more often than not, the reality is quite different.
5. He’s rescuing someone.
Your Pisces guy might likely be in the middle of saving some wretched, troubled soul – and in the process, he may have lost track of his own limits. For many Pisces, the boundary between romantic and platonic love is very thin, making it all too easy for them to be confused.
Check to see whether there’s somebody in his social circle right now that seems to require him all the time. This could be imperative to understand whether he’s cheating – and with whom.
6. He’s avoiding his problems.
Are you and your partner having relationship problems? Sure, every relationship has problems – but if the issues are severe enough, a Pisces guy may not be able to cope. They despise having to take off their rose-colored glasses and face the unpleasant realities of life!
If you’re having serious problems in your relationship right now, the stress could be one of the reasons he’s cheating on you. He’s using cheating as a means of avoiding the problems.
The Bottom Line
A Pisces man’s compassionate nature is one of the reasons he isn’t as likely to cheat. He understands how painful it is to be betrayed, and he would never want that pain on anybody else, especially his partner.
The bitterness of adultery might feel twice as painful to Pisces because a love bond is so deep and delightful to them. When you mix cheating with Pisces’ emotional sensitivity, you have a formula for one miserable little fish.
If a Pisces man does cheat, he’ll probably display some very visible traits – such as conflicted emotions, lack of attention, envy, and jealousy – that can easily help you recognize what he has done.
If there are some red flags that he’s cheating on you, try not to rush to judgment or make accusations that aren’t supported by evidence. Analyze why you’re suspicious before confronting the “other woman”.
If you truly want to know the truth, you should approach the Pisces man with caution. He will flee if you approach him aggressively.
You’ll also have to choose if you want to give the relationship another shot if you discover that he is cheating or whether that’s a big red flag for you.
