I do not like it when someone asks "who are you texting?" and tries to look over my shoulder then tries to play it off like it's a joke. It's not a joke. It's a sign of lack of trust and also an attack on my character/loyalty. I like the idea about the alarm.
My girl does the same thing and it bothers me to no end...and we even have little arguments about it. I've never done a single thing wrong to her in terms of trust, but she still has "issues" with trust.
If I get a text and don't immediately pick my phone up, it's "who is that, you going to check your phone?". Or if I do text and make any facial expression, it's "who was that, why are you smiling/smirking?". She will sometimes just pick it up on her own.
I have nothing to hide...but it's the principle. I've told her that I don't do it to her and she says "well, maybe you should and it would show you cared more." Uh, what?
