Do you know that agonizing feeling, when you suspect your loved one is cheating on you, but you just can’t put your finger on why? The panic, the fear, the self doubt, and then the inevitable denial… because nobody really wants to face that possibility and it’s implications.
Cheating is a betrayal of trust, which is what makes it so painful to be on the receiving end. And the only thing worse than being cheated on is not knowing for sure, just suspecting that SOMETHING may be going on.
Don’t you sometimes wish you could just follow him or her around like a fly on the wall, to know once and for all if you’re just making this up or if it’s real?
Well, technology has come a long way in the last years, and today you can actually do just that. The technology to actually digitally monitor someone’s movements through GPS is available today, from companies like LandAirSea.
The GPS Tracking Key from LandAirSea is basically a small spy gadget that is small, easily concealable, and can track where a person goes, for how long, and even how fast. The pocket sized GPS Tracking Key receives signals from the twenty-four Department of Defense GPS satellites orbiting the earth. It’s internal computer accurately determines the GPS location of the device within 2.5 meters and records this data every second. The data can then be downloaded and viewed in Google Earth simply by plugging the Tracking Key into the USB port of a computer.
Think of it as a video recorder for your (or his) car. Silently recording everywhere it goes, without anyone being the wiser.
In fact, this type of tracking technology has even been used to solve crimes, like this murder case. Here’s the NBC report on how this hidden GPS tracking device worked in a surprising real life situation.
Suddenly, you CAN know for sure if he’s really coming straight home after work, or taking a little “detour”. Ideally you could just ask him and have an open and honest discussion on the situation, but this is pretty unlikely in most infidelity situations.
So isn’t it a little creepy and “stalkeresque” to follow your significant other around with a hidden GPS tracking device? Well, yeah, sure it is. But it really sucks to suspect infidelity and not know. Facing just about any situation is much easier than worrying and being afraid of it… not knowing is always the worst. So either you end the relationship because something “may be happening”, or you find out for sure.
And no cheater is going to admit anything if you don’t have blatant, obvious evidence. Even then, you’re unlikely to get a plain admission.
At the end of the day, trust is the most important component in a relationship. Suspicion, lying, and any kind of deception is a sure way to destroy your relationship. Once you start lying to your partner, it becomes easier and easier… and soon thereafter the trust is broken, and so is the relationship. So stay honest with those you love.
But if you get that nagging feeling in your gut that something is just not right, and you really want to know for sure if he’s seeing someone else and lying about it, do yourself a favor and find out for sure.
Depending on your specific situation and the local laws in your jurisdiction, something like the GPS Tracking Key may well be an option for you.
That type of fear and uncertainty is no way to live. One way or another, put your mind at ease so you can move forward and enjoy your life again.
