I was about to start this post with something about how I’ve never snooped. I was all up on my high horse and giving myself a pat on the back, but then I realized I’ve done it. I went through my boyfriend’s phone. Once. In my early twenties when I was in college.
I honestly can’t remember the reasoning behind it. I don’t recall being suspicious of something that had happened. I just remember being curious about contacts in his phone. I can also remember sitting on my balcony with my best friend at the time. We were hovered over his phone while he was in the bathroom.
I was sneaky, but I ended up telling him later that night and he wasn’t happy. In fact, I am pretty sure that’s part of the reason our relationship ended. It was also because it was long distance, he didn’t want a girlfriend, and we were young. Blah blah blah.
The funny thing is, I found out months later that I had a right to be curious since he had another girlfriend while we were dating. Oops.
The point of all of my babbling, though, is that snooping is bad. Really bad. In fact, I think it’s a huge no-no for relationships. Check out my article on We Love Dates for some reasons why snooping is anything but sweet and innocent.
