My boyfriend of almost 8 months wouldn't let me get hold of his cellphone and this bothers me. According to him, cellphones are personal stuffs that should only be kept to oneself. I understand that there's this privacy thing that each of us imposes to our partners but I think cellphones, more often than not are exluded from such. I've asked him about this and he said that he's been like this since his college days (he's 31 now). This was even one of the reasons why he and his ex-gf broke up. I really don't know what to think, I try to remove my doubts but at the back of my mind, I have this mentality that if you're not hiding anything in your cellphone, then I guess it's no issue or problem if I go through your phone. So friends what do u think? Is he hiding something or he's just like that, that he's not just comfortable letting people go through his personal stuffs?
