Hi, We are both 19 years old and throughout our partnership I have actually been extremely open through my phone, my boyfrifinish is enabled to usage my phone whenever before and go on it whenever he desires. However it is completely the other method round as soon as it comes to his phone.

You are watching: Why is my boyfriend so protective over his phone

I have asked him and he states he doesn’t choose world going on his phone which is an individual choice and that I should respect his privacy.

The last 2 weeks his phone has come to be inseparable to him and also he cannot leave his phone alone via me. He takes it all over with him and constantly checks it.

It provides me suspicious as I feel as though he is hiding something, yet I don’t desire to bring this up to him and also invade his privacy and I want to protect against an argument at all expenses.

What execute I carry out, does he simply desire his privacy or perform you think he’s cheating ?

Background - I have been on his phone in the previous and found that he was speaking to another girl however we have actually gone past that.

I obtain where your boyfriend is coming from. I don’t favor civilization on my phone. It’s my home and my privacy, not anybody else’s organization.

You might ask him why he’s 100% on it all the time newly. I wouldn’t advise snooping through it unless you’re incredibly confident he’s cheating. It’ll implode any type of trust you have on both sides.

So, I have actually questions.

I have actually been exceptionally open with my phone, my boyfriend is permitted to use my phone whenever and go on it whenever before he wants. However it is completely the other way round as soon as it involves his phone.

Did he ask you to carry out access to his phone, or did you make that decision on your own? If it’s the latter, did you make that decision through the expectation that he would certainly reciprocate?

Background - I have been on his phone in the previous and found that he was speaking to an additional girl however we have gone past that.

Was he involved in sexually charged communication (sexting, nude pics or videos, heavy flirtation) through her, or was it a continuous conversation?

What perform I perform, does he just desire his privacy or perform you think he’s cheating ?

Personally, I keep my phone on me at all times. I check out weird shit every day and also take photos. I have actually IBS and also never understand as soon as I’m going to be on the toilet for a while. The worst point in the people is being stuck in the bathroom with nothing to review aside from the air freshener.

I’m the only one with access to my phone. I don’t usage my SO’s phone unless she asks me to (normally she gained a message however is driving at the time).

She’s told me the passcode in a pair of instances once she essential me to operate her phone, and also i very deliberately execute not retain it. It’s her phone, and I’ll give her the privacy I suppose.
