In a recent conversation with a girlfriend, she confessed to one of dating’s most controversial topics: snooping. My dearest friend had said that recently she felt something was up with her relationship; she wasn’t sure what it was, but she had a niggling feeling and so took to her boyfriend’s iPhone to spy on his messages. Which led me to the ultimate question- to snoop, or not to snoop?
You, like my good friend, may suspect there is something up with your current crush. You’re not sure what it is, but you know all is not right, and with the growing use of technology there are an abundance of places to hide our potential bad behaviours.
When you suspect your other half may be cheating, involved in drugs or taking part in any other type of debauchery, is it really OK to scour their emails, social media, phone, or even their drawers? Whilst I don’t believe there is a black or white answer, the next two paragraphs explore the shades of grey that come with snooping on your dearly beloved.
