Not sure I agree with you 100% here.... I dont know if shes actively seeking if you know what I mean. Then again, surely you have to give your partner some leeway and trust them rather than control everything they do? However, if they cross the line thats a different thing entirely...

It is a two way thing though, if your partner is on facebook all the time, and constantly hiding what they are doing then yes i would be worried to. But if you sit next to them and they are just talking to people and don't seem to be hiding anything then no worries. When im on myspace, facebook, or yahoo chat, and my husband comes home i hardly log off before he comes next to me. Just for the sake he wont doubt me that is all. People by nature are jealous beings even if they deny it. The rare instances i wont let him read what i write is when im discussing something of a personal nature in regards to a family member or friend. He is okay with that since he does the same when it comes to some phone calls. It's about trusting, and being trusted in return. He sees my profiles so he knows what i have up on there. But then again we're married. Boyfriend girlfriend sort of deal might be different but it is to some extent the same thing.

I know what you mean though, and your partner or people in general may claim that you are being insecure or that you should get with the program since it is the "in" thing. I am a female and I am married, and I do not like these networking sites at all. It just leaves room for a new way of cheating if you ask me. As the other user said, though, it is definately about trust and for me open communication. Without those factors, it is impossible to tell what is going on with your partner, ya know.
