    correct sentence

    Is the following sentence a correct one ?
    "I am suspicious of you/your cheating me."

    Which word in bold should I use or is the sentence wrongly phrased?

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: correct sentence

    "Your cheating on me" is stated as fact, and that you are suspicious about it. That's not natural. You can be suspicious about that person's behavior, because you believe he is cheating.

    I suspect you of cheating me.
    I am suspicious about your behavior and think you are cheating m.
    Your behavior makes me suspicious.
    Your behavior makes me believe you are cheating me.

    (Cheating me = not being fair in business dealings, games, etc.
    Cheating on me = being unfaithful in a relationship.)
