A woman doesn’t trust her boyfriend around her laptop because of a previous incident.
She explained her predicament on Reddit’s “Am I the A******” forum. Her boyfriend N was jealous of her best friend E, who is a guy. N believed she was having an affair with E. One day, he snooped through her text messages and found nothing. He confessed and ever since then the Reddit poster hasn’t trusted him around her electronics.
“Me and my boyfriend N have been together for a year now. The beginning of our relationship has been very difficult due to his jealousy,” she says. “We worked things out but he absolutely hated (and still hates honestly) my best friend E because he thought there was something between us. Nearly six months ago, he took advantage of the fact that I was showering to go through all the text messages between me and E, connecting my laptop to my phone. He obviously found nothing. The next day he confessed everything because he was feeling guilty and said he was truly sorry. I was furious and said him that for me this was enough to end our relationship. I decided to forgive him but warned him that I would change all my passwords and he wasn’t allowed to use my laptop and my phone anymore without my supervision.”
The Reddit poster felt he kept his promise and improved his behavior a lot.
“A couple of days ago we were about to watch something on my laptop,” she said. “I decided to leave the room and go to the kitchen to make us some snacks, so I locked the screen as always. But this time he got mad and said that he redeemed himself, that I could trust him and I was being ridiculous since it’s been a long time since ‘the accident.’ At first, I put my foot down and said him that he brought this on himself, but it’s been two days and he is still mad.”
Reddit users were on the girlfriend’s side for his one.
“Red flags everywhere! Run!” one person commented.
“What I find most concerning is not only that there are eight red flags but she trusts him less than probably anyone else in her life with her personal electronics,” another said.
“It’s your life, your privacy. And some parts of it aren’t meant to be his business,” someone wrote.
