Dear Poll: Do You Snoop?

If your boyfriend were to run out for a second, would you go through his wallet if he left it on the coffee table? Would you check his call log or text message inbox? Snooping is not uncommon in relationships even though it's considered a big no no. I happen to think that if you feel the urge to snoop, you already know that you're going to find something upsetting. Since this is all anonymous, what I want to know is, do you snoop in your boyfriend's or husband's personal belongings?

Yes, I snoop, I hate it, I wish I could stop. I know when I snoop I don't trust them anymore and I should end it. When I snoop, I find out stuff I wish I didn't know. My last boyfriend, when I found out he was cheating on me, with a text msg. I found on the phone, that was a accident snoop. I was using his phone to send a text. He told me "c what happens when you snoop". Or this last time it might of saved my life! My xbf now. I was at his lake home and looking at books on the coffee table. Didn't know it was his pray journal. I saw something about me written, then he grabbed the book and said "don't look at that, it's my pray journal" well i snooped and got caught later. Good thing I snooped..I found out he was addicted to cocaine and pron and prostitute's and dating 4 other women. I think it saved my life and my children's. I could of been with him, and he could of gotten arrest with cocaine, and I would of gotten in trouble too (jail) and I think he won't of help me out, he is very wealthy and would of gotten out of it and left me. He sure didn't care about my safety. I could of gotten AIDS of stds ect...The whole relationship was a lie. He just has to much money to play with and must be soo sad with life. I know what I did WAS WRONG, but he put me in danger and my children. that's why I snoop and wish I could stop!! that last time did save my life, but it was wrong of me and I felt so guilty for snooping on him. I don't want to snoop

I snoop for sure, if you have a gut feeling that something is going on even if it's not that big of a deal, you should snoop too. You have no idea the things that I found by snooping, and you know what the truth hurts, but it's also our god givin right to know and seek the truth. I am super nosy! LOL

Ill confess I have... but only since I had a motive to. Turned out he was cheating on me like I expected, but in the long run, snooping usually turns out worse than it does beneficial... we're girls... we overanalyze EVERYTHING. and of course things seem so much worse when we dont know the story behind them. sooo.. dont snoop :)

I'm married and snoop ocassionaly. I don't think there is any thing wrong with that. He can feel free to snoop through my stuff as well. If you have a good relationship there should be nothing to hide.

I don't know if it's called snooping, but I go through his phone INFRONT of him, when he's near me. So he knows. Sometimes I feel guilty because he never does that to me.

I've done plenty of snooping in my day. And with good reason. However, I trust my current BF completely so I have no reason to snoop.

Hell YES. Sometimes when you think a person is being so faithful and that there is never a need to do it - you might be amazed with the things you find. I have trust issues...oh well.

I have and he knows it. He chuckles (my husband) and he does the same but just with my cell phone or unless he never admitted to going through my purse.

I am nosey by nature but would never snoop without permission, so I guess it's not snooping. I have used the bf's phone to make a phone call and asked to look at his text messages or when I put his clothes away I get a peak of something in his drawer. I don't investigate much because things fall into my lap really. I don't have to go looking for it... trouble comes to me!

No, no snooping. I grew up in a big family and that was one of the mortal sins. It was really ingrained in us to respect each other's privacy.

After my ex's email was overloaded with spam he asked me to create a new email address for him and to change the password on his old one (it was his ex-wifes name- it was obviously time to change it) so I knew the passwords on his email. Later when thigns were bad, he wasnt coming home, he was supposed to have stopped drinking and I suspected he hadnt, I checked his emails- and there were memberships to dating websites that he had created while I was home for Christmas- he had even tried to post our home phone number on his profiles! (which no website allows and he didnt even get the number right anyway) I was devastated and we didnt last much longer after that. Im married now and I dont snoop- I dont need to, I trust him, I can tell him anything- if an old bf finds me on myspace or facebook I can tell him and hes ok with it- he knows Im right where I want to be.

Never. I respect privacy, mine and his, too much.Plus, I have a mouth and can ask questions if there are issues. Also, there is a really fine line between snooping and stalking. I find most of the women I know that snoop have done borderline illegal things, like hacking (even using passwords without express premission) into myspace accounts, voice mail, email, or open/go through mail (CC statements). Weird thing is, most of these people aren't even married,its like in 1mo to year long relationships. haha. Idk, that sort of insecurity is just not attractive in a mate and I can't imagine if the snoopee knew he'd want to stay with someone not only incapable of being direct, but who doesn't respect them at all. Like Pop said, why not just leave if you lose the ability to trust? 'Cause then you'd be single?

Hell yeah. All the time. Everyone has their own opinions about this, but considering I don't trust ANYONE (quite frankly this day and age I don't know how anyone can 100% trust anyone) it's natural that I do it and I don't feel bad about it at all. There's A LOT you learn and it keeps you one step ahead. I do with no regrets.
