Trust is crucial for a relationship to work. It requires a lot of effort from both parties to build and maintain that trust. Even then, everything in a relationship can never be perfect, and you never really know if your girlfriend is keeping something from you. With the advent of social media, cheating has become easier because everyone has a phone on them at all times. You won’t believe this, but there are plenty of apps that help cheaters cover their tracks. When you smell something fishy, you’d definitely want to spy through her phone. Hopefully, you won’t find anything odd in her contacts list, and everything remains cool.
If you spy and find these numbers on your girlfriend’s phone, things can get complicated. There’s a high chance that these could cause some serious problems in your otherwise happy relationship.
Many girls claim that they are only friends with their ex, but it is rare to pull off such a friendship. Still, you can give her the benefit of the doubt if she is resolving some unfinished business with him. If your girlfriend and her ex have children together, that’s a different story altogether. They may have been coordinating the schedules about getting the kids back and forth. If that’s the case, it is totally fine, and you don’t need to worry. Maybe she is still struggling to delete that number, and it makes you feel insecure. Communicate your insecurity to her and work on the issue together.
If your girlfriend has your ex’s number on her phone, believe it or not, there’s something fishy going on here. If you’re dating your ex’s friend, then it is a bad decision on your part. In this case, you clearly need to back out. It’s even worse if they weren’t already friends, and the impending question is, ‘how did these two become friends?’ You might be wondering what they talk about behind you? One thing you can do is to find out how they became friends and why are they talking.
Your Mother And Father
It is okay if your girlfriend is cordial with your parents at family gatherings, but what would be the reason to call them on the phone? If there’s anything she needs to ask them, she should do that through you. You surely don’t want your mother to talk to her for too long. They may have been sharing embarrassing stories or secrets about you that you’d like to keep to yourself. Things are subject to change when you get married, but for now, she shouldn’t have your parent’s number on her phone.
