We’ve all been there… it’s late at night, your significant other is giggling into their phone, texting aimlessly and you think to yourself, “Who the heck are they texting?”. Oh, you’ve never thought that? You’re probably in a sane, stable relationship. For those of you who might not be… Here are the three reasons why you resort to snooping.
The Stats: based off a survey conducted on over 1,500 people
TTR True Life Story: This was probably my lowest point in my past relationship. I felt the gut feeling, my ex would come home late from work with tears in his eyes and when I’d ask him what was wrong he’d scream at me. I just knew I needed the proof. It resulted in one of the most insecure acts from yours truly. Late at night, when we both were asleep I slowly got out of bed and army crawled… Yes, army crawled across our bedroom floor to his iPhone. Which in case you don’t know… I have no clue how to use. I grab his phone… Victory! I Army crawl to the bathroom. I spent what felt like 15 seconds on his phone (We knew each other's passwords) when I hear the most fatal two words in any snoopers search coming from the other room… “HEY SIRI”. I’m screwed! I’m freaking caught iPhone handed. Lucky for me… I’m extremely quick on my feet and tell my partner, “I’m so so sorry” (We got into this huge fight before bed and I knew just what to say) “I wrote you the most hateful text that I couldn’t bare you waking up to! I had to delete it before you saw!” Half asleep, he replied, “Oh that’s fine.” and drifted back to sleep. DO NOT resort to army crawling to your partners phone late at night! Break up… The gut feeling is an animal instinct. There’s something wrong. Stop ignoring it and just break up without the evidence. No snooping required.
