I’ve been with my partner for almost six years and we’re currently expecting our first baby, due in July.
For a while now he’s been taking his phone everywhere with him, even if he is just going to the toilet/puts the bins out/make a cup of tea, he puts it in his pocket instead of leaving it lying around. I never thought anything more as I trust him and he’s always showing me love and affection, we’re due to become parents and I couldn’t be happier. However, recently he’s been locking it when I am near him and won’t let me use it at all. I asked if I could use it as mine had no battery, he wouldn’t let me unless he did it for me. I took it from him whilst we was play fighting and he chased me until he got it, ( I wasn’t going to go on it, we was just playing around, but he took it serious and didn’t leave me alone until he got it back) I just think he’s being too over protective with it. I don’t see why he wouldn’t just let me use it, I’d happily leave him with my phone. I keep suggesting for us both to delete social media as this has been a massive issue in the past and I’d feel much happier knowing none of us have it. There isn’t one single thing that’s good regarding social media, in my mind. It can destroy relationships and is not good for your mental state of mind. I just wondered whether I was over thinking or not? What should I do? I trust him I just don’t understand why he’s so protective of it.

Why not ask HIM straight up? WHY are you so protective of you phone as of lately?See what he says.Don’t make accusations, just ask the quest next time he locks the screen while near you.If this is new or odd behavior after 6 years, you should be able to bring it up, and have a MATURE conversation. Don’t you think?Stop suggesting he delete his social media. IF you have already had a conversation about it, and you TRUST him (as you say you do) then YOU can delete YOURS, but you CAN NOT MAKE him delete his.It’s not the social media that destroys relationships. It’s people misusing it. If a persona WANTS to do “bad” things… they will.
