Snooping Goes High Tech

from the cheat-on-me-virtually,-i'll-spy-on-you-virtually dept

As more and more people are using the internet to cheat on their significant others, suspicious partners are increasingly using high tech means to spy on those they suspect of infidelity. I already know at least one person who found out their partner was cheating on them after reading through his email, and it seems like that’s a growing trend. People are checking out their partner’s emails and text messages to see if they see anything suspicious at all. Some even say it’s “addictive” to keep checking up on their partners. Apparently relationships built on things like trust are a thing of the past. As for gender splits, the study found that more women are interested in spying on their partners. Or, at least, more women are willing to admit that…

Um, no

Apparently relationships built on things like trust are a thing of the past.

Ahhh, the wonderful past, when relationships were built on trust and suspicion didn’t exist. Too bad it’s that wonderful past that didn’t exist. 🙂

I don’t have the statistics, but you could even say that there’s MORE trust now. Since relationships that don’t have mutual trust can end, the ones that survive are more trustworthy, versus lingering on and on in mistrust, when divorce is not possible.

But I’d bet that the increase in mistrust that you’re talking about just isn’t there. Plus ca change, plus c’est le meme chose.
