I’m 22 and dating a 29-year old guy. I found out that he had stored my number against a

man’s name on his phone. Please help.

It is always best to start a new relationship with trust. Snooping through somebody’s phone is an indication of mistrust, and that behaviour is likely to bring

you conflict. When you enter a new relationship, it’s likely that one or both partners are still dealing with past relations. Be open to him about what you saw and how it makes you

feel, without accusing him. He might not appreciate hearing that you go through his phone though.
