Last updated on June 8, 2022 by April Maccario

Is your boyfriend accusing you of everything?

Does he always find a way to blame you?

Are you wondering why he acts this way?

It might not be awful as it seems. This guide explains 11 reasons why your boyfriend is accusing you of everything. 

Before we get into that though, I want to tell you an important story. 

It’s true that people tend to become accusatory when they have something to hide. In a romantic context, that could mean your accusatory boyfriend could be cheating behind your back. 

This online communications tool is a way of finding out whether your partner is being unfaithful when you’re not around. 

Type a few of his details into the algorithm, and it will be able to connect with his personal devices and deliver information based on his communications. That includes who he’s contacting, how often, what apps they’re using and more...  

This tool is 100% discreet too, meaning he won’t find out he’s being tracked. 

With that said, let’s take a look at the reason why your boyfriend accuses you of everything.

11 Possible Reasons Why Your Boyfriend Accuses You Of Everything

1. Jealousy 

Jealousy is one of the reasons your boyfriend accuses you of anything, especially if those accusations are questioning your loyalty. He is probably jealous of your relationship with another person and it makes him uncomfortable and suspicious when you hang around that said individual. 

It could be a co-worker you spend so much time with, a long time friend or someone you just met. Your partner may have given off signs of discomfort when you are around that particular man, but you missed it, and now it looks like you’re up to something. No doubt, jealousy is something not everyone finds easy to admit and it’s likely your partner is in that group. 

More so, jealousy can drive people to overthink things. Every time you are out with him, your man is making up convenient cheating sceneries in his head to accuse you of. More so, the fact that you are not aware of his thoughts could also be misinterpreted as well. If this is the case, a gentle reaffirmation of your undying love will cure the heartache. However, if he accuses you too often, it’s time to move on.

2. He is insecure 

Insecurity is common with an insecure boyfriend who wants to control what you do all the time. More so, insecurities can make a person so suspicious to the point it gets tiresome for their partner. If that’s the case in your relationship, you always have to assure your man you’re not intentionally trying to hurt him. 

More so, helping him get over the insecurity is a way to nip this by the bud. If you don’t, it’s very likely you will be constantly accused. However, if you can keep up the words of affirmation and keep off situations that trigger his insecurities, you're on the right track. 

3. He is cheating 

If your partner keeps accusing you of cheating when you are not, flip the cards and make him a suspect. Remember, when a person is hell-bent on having something on you, they are probably very guilty themself. He could be accusing you wrongly to justify his actions; no doubt, blaming you would make him feel less guilty about what he did or is doing. 

Be very careful of partners like this. Often, they are fully aware they are wrong, but they enjoy victimizing you with those accusations. More importantly, if you know you aren’t guilty and you’ve stated specific facts to back it up, don’t let something you didn’t do be hung over your head. Spend some time apart if you have to and don’t throw a “my husband constantly questions me” pity party. 

4. He is looking for a way out 

It is possible he wants to break up with you but doesn’t have a sound reason to. So, he is accusing you of so many issues and hopes one sticks enough for a breakup. No doubt, ending a relationship based on a mere lack of interest could be too inexplicable to deal with. 

Therefore, it helps some people sleep at night if a connection failed because of another person's mistake, not theirs. Perhaps the reason you ask yourself ‘’why my boyfriend gets mad at me for everything.” could be because he wants out

Asking about this directly might help sort your problems out smoothly, but what are the chances that your man would be honest? If you think he will be honest, go for it. Other than that, help him out by ending the relationship yourself or asking for some time apart to think the situation through. 

Certainly, if he doesn't care about the separation or that you are absent, he doesn't want to be with you anymore. This is one of the surest reasons your partner would accuse you of outrageous things.

5. He doesn't trust you 

Making false accusations is an unpleasant way to test trust or loyalty in a relationship. Certainly, your partner has trust issues if he's always accusing you of doing something. It's hardly your fault if you're doing the best you can in a relationship, but if your partner never trusts you, don't blame yourself

They are lots of reasons why someone will develop trust issues, and it may honestly have nothing to do with you. It could be from a bad relationship he had in the past, where his ex cheated on him. Maybe they are things you do that trigger unconsciously that bad memory and make it hard for him to trust you. 

He could also have problems trusting people in general and has had his trust repeatedly broken, which eventually took a negative toll on him. Again, it could be that you've cheated on him before, and he is suspecting your every move, even when you are not cheating anymore. 

Frustrated that he doesn't pay you as much attention as he used to?
This is one of the most common issues our female readers face.

It makes you wonder whether he actually likes you or not.

Regardless of the case, it's difficult to live with a boyfriend who lacks trust in you. Accusations generally come from a lack of faith. 

6. You are acting suspiciously 

There's a chance you keep putting yourself in a situation to be accused by him. So, check yourself; what are you consciously or unconsciously doing that may cause him to suspect you are up to no good

Do you keep changing your passcodes? Do you come home late very often? Are you spending time with someone else? What are you hiding from him? Generally, your body language could give off a vibe that your partner misinterprets. So, take a step back and rethink your recent actions. 

More so, consider your everyday activities that may seem unfaithful or dishonest. Have you spent more time than usual talking to a guy on the phone? Do you think you are not giving him as much attention as you used to? Situations like this make you prone to accusations from your significant other. 

Mind you, he doesn't need to know and be in control of every part of your intimate life. What’s more, he can’t always be next to you. So, Just be sure to communicate with him if you feel a little out of it for a while. If you're hiding things, even though it's not about another guy, understand that your partner would be concerned. 

7. Oversensitivity

Being sensitive in a relationship is not a bad trait. However, over sensitivity can pose a problem and is a common reason a partner could be suspicious of another. No doubt, an overly sensitive person is tough to manage in a relationship. Most times, they could be moving powerfully on a false feeling.

Your man would accuse you of almost anything the moment he starts overanalyzing the things you do. More so, your conversations and body language towards other men become closely scrutinized and could lead to him making up stories in his head that aren’t true about you based on false instincts. 

If this is true about your boyfriend, at this point, he would be so gullible. He might even get someone to tail you and will believe whatever stories said about you without vetting them. On top of this, oversensitivity could also make him feel all you do is targeted against him, to hurt him. 

Certainly, people react very differently to situations like this, and oversensitivity is fueled by fear or suppressed pain. It could be that something is bothering him he can't express himself about it freely, so he takes it out on you. This behavior is unacceptable in a relationship if it is expected to blossom. 

8. He is onto something 

You may not realize it, but he could have dirt on you. For a boyfriend to accuse you of doing something wrong almost all the time, there's a purpose he wants to achieve. If you're guilty, you should come clean about it if you want to save what's left of the relationship. 

Additionally, your boyfriend might be trying to send a message to you. Either you have changed in his opinion and he expects more of you, or he is tired of the relationship. Constant defensiveness might blind you. In a situation like this, you ought to be quiet, be observant about the happenings around you, and with your partner to see the sign. 

He is onto something

It could be time to end the relationship or the beginning of a more robust phase. Don't allow the situation to make you think bad about yourself, especially if you are not guilty of his accusations. Could be he is blaming you out of the relationship with him to look good. However, take time out to communicate with your partner. If that doesn't work, get some space. 

9. Emotional imprisonment 

Your partner is emotionally imprisoning you with these false accusations. It makes you feel powerless, and he probably enjoys putting you in that situation. Certainly, it's a disrespectful, cruel, and unusual behavior towards another human being. 

In situations like this, couples could unknowingly waltz into the minefield of each other's pain, and false accusations can ignite an old trauma or create one. It hurts to be pointed out continually for doing something you are not. No doubt, at some point, you may question your sanity, because it's tough to defend yourself in situations like this, especially when the accuser's mind is infallible.

Also, be aware that abusers use false accusations as a form of power play. It's difficult to prove you are innocent because proving a negative is almost impossible to do. Additionally, you will keep making one compromise after the other while your partner doesn't give anything up because he is ”hurt.” On top of this, he could be manipulating you with these false accusations, making you vulnerable and giving him more control. If that’s the case, run for your life. 

Don't give room for this kind of emotional abuse. It won't get better, and you will only be hurting yourself further if you stay with such a cruel person. They are a lot of things you don't know about your partner. More so, understand that no matter how deeply you care about him, you can't change who he is. 

10. He is regretting something 

An individual can project something they are not proud of on others. It often comes from a place of regret or fear of being hurt. Other than allowing themselves to be hurt by your actions or inactions, they blame you for putting them in a situation where they would face insecurity. 

This projection often manifests as blames or accusations and he will make you feel you are a constant offender. Instead of facing what he did, your man finds a way to pin something on you, so he does not go down alone. More so, he may not even realize he is projecting his fear on you

Then there's also the deflection method when he blames or accuses you of something to prevent you from suspecting something wrong he has done to you. In fact, it could even be the same thing he is charging you of. Also, be aware that this is a form of emotional abuse that some people use to mask guilt, anger, or regret.  

If you find yourself in this situation, sit him down, and have a genuine conversation with him about it. If the situation persists, it’s time to move on because you deserve better. 

11. He feels the burden of the relationship 

Sometimes, he might feel like he takes on more responsibilities in the relationship than you do. He could be wrong about the narrative, but it hardly matters since that's how he feels. If he blames you each time something goes wrong, it's probably because he feels like he didn't have enough support from you to make it right. 

And to make the matter worse, how much responsibility you already carry doesn't matter to him until you take up more. The truth is that most couples often see through problems like this by simply talking. However, if he chooses not to discuss the matter, he is simply being immature.

More so, I can't overemphasize the chances of this happening as a result of his past. Could go as far back as the way his parents raised him. Maybe he grew up listening to mom and dad blame each other, and complain about certain responsibilities in a bond. Especially on the topic of ”gender, ” he might hold on to age-old traditional beliefs.


Why do I feel like my boyfriend hates? 

I think hate is a relatively strong word. It could be that he's not giving as much attention as you would want or being accused so much is taking a toll on you. It's possible he doesn't like you as much anymore; he could also be distracted by someone or even something. My advice is, to be honest, and directly ask him why he behaves this way. 

Why does my partner always think I'm cheating? 

Maybe he is. Sometimes, people project themselves onto others. If you're not cheating, maybe you've become secretive in a way that makes him uncomfortable. Perhaps you are hiding something else from him or are just acting differently? More so, have you cheated before? If yes, could be he's not yet over it and questions your loyalty. How to deal with false accusations in a relationship is to be calm and observant. 

Why do I always get mad at my boyfriend for no reason? 

You're probably crazy (lol). It could be that you're insecure about something or plain dramatic. However, it's not okay to get mad at someone for no genuine reason. No doubt, he will eventually get tired and break up with you. If what you want is for him to get out of your life, telling him is a lot easier than getting mad for no reason. Don't hurt someone just because you can; it may hunt them for life.  

What does it mean when your husband accuses you of cheating? 

This isn't something simple or easy. There are a lot of reasons your husband could accuse you of cheating, one of the hard ones could be that he is cheating on you. More so, are you doing something that would make him suspect that? That’s probably another reason he would think so. Constantly telling people “my husband turns everything on me” isn’t going to help an accusation of cheating. 

How do you tell if your BF hates you? 

Your boyfriend would threaten to break up with you at the slightest thing. He won’t care how his actions or inactions make you look; he would become very secretive and silent around you. If he hates you, he would begin to objectify you, comparing you with other women. Does he want to do anything with you? If he does not want to, that’s another sign.
